Army Bowl: What We Want To See From The FSU Commits And Targets

What we want to see from each Florida State commit in the Army Bowl.


4-star OT Josh Ball

Ball is in the Scout 300, but is still underrated as a prospect. He has all the tools. Great size, footwork, and attitude. What I want to see is how well he run blocks. We know that Ball has the footwork to be an excellent pass blocker, but does he have the mentality, the nastiness, to be a dominant run blocker?

4-star DE Janarius Robinson

Robinson may have the highest ceiling of any player in the 2016 class, but he's still very raw. I want to see if he was able to take the coaching from this week to make himself better from a pass rushing standpoint. He gets off the ball very well, and used his speed and bull rush to dominate in high school, but he will need more than that at the next level. 

4-star S Jamel Cook

Cook has been the talk of the Army Bowl with his performances in the practices, and I want to see if he can translate that to the game. Cook has excellent size at 6-foot-4, 190-pounds, and is an incredible athlete. If he can play as well in the game as he has in the practices we could see a major bump in his ranking.

3-star LB Josh Brown

Brown is the most underrated prospect in Florida State's class in my opinion. He is an excellent pass rusher, and has improved greatly in coverage. I want to see just how much he has improved in that regard. Florida State has a big need at linebacker, and Brown being able to play there effectively would be a big help to the Florida State defense especially as an early enrollee. 


4-star CB Trayvon Mullen

Mullen has the size, length, and speed combination that every defensive backs coach in the country is looking for as well as the instincts. What I want to see from him is how competitive he is going up against the best wide receivers in the country. He has very high potential at the next level, but does he have the attitude?

4-star DE Brian Burns

Everyone has raved about Burns during the Army Bowl practices, and about his first step. I want to see just how good it is. Former Florida State defensive end Brandon Jenkins had one of the quickest first steps I've seen out of a defensive end, and I want to see how Burns compares.

4-star DT Raekwon Davis

Davis is a physical freak that just overpowers everyone in front of him. He's been very good in the Army Bowl practices so far, and I want to see that continue into the game.
