Jimbo Fisher has assembled a deep and talented roster since he formally took over as FSU’s head coach in January 2010.
His recruiting prowess has never been in question, and judging by the play of several underclassmen that were pressed into service (mainly due to a laundry list of injuries suffered by the Seminoles this season), the future looks bright in Tallahassee.
On the flip side, there were some players who were passed up on the depth chart or failed to improve on the promise they had displayed since arriving on campus.
Competition breeds excellence, and there are clearly some upperclassmen that have talented newcomers on their heels chomping at the bit to take over a starting role.
Here are five players who surprised us, and five who need to step up for FSU next season.
