1. Is Deondre Francois The Next Man Up?

With Sean Maguire out for the spring, the question on everyone's mind is if Deondre Francois can take control of the offense. Francois has all the tools, and performed very well with the scout team last year. He stepped up as a leader this offseason, but is he ready to take the next step this spring? With thoughts of competing for a National Championship this year, the Seminoles need a quarterback to step up. 

2. Can Malik Henry challenge Francois?

Henry early enrolled in January, and has gone through the off season workout plan. He has the most ability of any quarterback on the roster, but questions about his maturity have surrounded him for a while. If he can prove that he can handle the emotional aspects of the game, and be a leader, the talent is there for him to make a run at the starting quarterback job. He will have to get the offense down quickly in order to do so. 

3. What Happens To JJ Cosentino?

Cosentino came in with fairly high expectations, but hasn't yet lived up to them through the first two years of his career. This is his last chance to show that he has the ability to be the starting quarterback for the Seminoles. With two very talented young quarterbacks on the roster already pushing him this spring is a make or break time for him.
