Florida State's annual spring game took place yesterday and, unfortunately, they failed to impress; well at least the offense did. In front of a crowd of over 50,000 fans the offense looked stale and for most of the scrimmage, they failed to move the ball.
Of course that doesn't mean that there should be cause for concern. Instead it just means that this is April and there is still a lot of time left before the first game. On top of that, the injuries seemed to take their toll, especially on the offensive line.
The defense was improved, and there were some potential stars in the making emerging right before our eyes.
As a fan I was not exactly pleased with the way the teams were split up. I didn't like that Willie Haulstead and Rodney Smith didn't get to take snaps with E.J. Manuel. The No. 1 defense was split up and, of course, the offensive line was split in half due to all of the injuries.
I would rather have seen the No. 1 offense and the No. 1 defense as full units rather than them being split up, but, of course, I'm not the head coach, and Coach Fisher knows what he's doing.
So with that being said, here are the position grades for the spring game.
