Florida State's young wide receivers need consistency if they want to get on the field.

Florida State has quite a few young wide receivers. They need to get more consistent if they want to see the field.

Seven of the nine wide receivers on Florida State's roster are underclassmen, and, with the possible exception of Travis Rudolph, all of them need to get more consistent if they want to earn playing time. The Seminoles are currently starting two receivers under 6-foot, Bobo Wilson and Kermit Whitfield, despite having a lot of highly rated big receivers on the roster.

George Campbell and Ermon Lane, who were both ranked among the Top-35 prospects in their respective classes, as well as Ja'Vonn Harrison, who was rated in the Top-250, are all 6-foot-3. Those three have combined for just 9 catches this season. Travis Rudolph currently leads the team in receptions with 14. 

So what do those three have to do to get on the field? Head coach Jimbo Fisher's answer was very simple.

"Practice better," Fisher said. "Be consistent." 

Those three will undoubtedly get better throughout their careers. All three are extremely talented, but if they want to see meaningful playing time any time soon, they'll need to step it up.
