QB Jameis Winston
Offense / Secondary

With Heisman winner Jameis Winston behind center, an unproven stud at running back in Karlos Williams just waiting to break out, an NFL receiver in Rashad Greene, a NFL tight end in Nick O'Leary and a dominating offensive line that is completely dominated by returning seniors, the Seminoles will be the most high powered offense in country with a lethal dose of running or passing. This defensive backfield is dominating like the days of old. Everyone on this unit's two-deep depth chart could start for most any team. Darby and Williams are stellar corners.

Linebacker

Locating a weak link on this football team is difficult. It's exceptionally strong across the board, which is why the Noles continue to dominate so many opponents. Starting linebackers Christian Jones and Telvin Smith move on and will test the incredibly positive recruiting theory currently in place. This will be a reloading situation although there are not many experienced backups.

* DEPTH CHARTS were only designed as a simplistic gauge for listing players that departed and players that received the most playing experience (consistent starters). NationalChamps.net recognizes the importance of missing personnel data not listed such as redshirts, transfers, injuries, incoming recruits, back ups and alternates. Their coverage will begin with our full 2014 Preseason Preview due out this coming spring.
