1. Is Mavin Saunders Moving To Wide Receiver?

There have been plenty of rumors going around that tight end Mavin Saunders is moving to wide receiver this spring. Saunders is big and athletic, but not a particularly good route runner. He has struggled to find his place at tight end because he struggles blocking. The Seminoles lacked a big wide receiver threat last season, but with Auden Tate and George Campbell having another year of experience, and a very crowded wide receiver corps already, it will be interesting to see if Saunders does in fact make the move.

2. Can Jalen Wilkerson Stay Healthy?

Wilkerson has been plagued with major injuries since he was in high school, and missed last season with a shoulder injury. Wilkerson suffered two major neck injuries in high school where he was airlifted off the field both times. Can he stay healthy this spring? If he can he could see a small role in the offense with Saunders potentially moving to wide receiver.
