FSU Football Practice Tidbits
Rix was very sharp today. His passes weren't fluttering and he was very consistent with his accuracy. He hit several receivers in both skeleton drills and 11 on 11 drills.
Sexton, on the other hand, struggled today. He threw two interceptions in 11 on 11 drills and he's quite a bit behind Rix at this time.
Chauncey Stovall looks to be the most consistent wide receiver today. He's been very solid so far this spring. The rest of the receivers took a step back today but that is to be somewhat expected according to Coach Bowden due to being the first day in pads.
Running back Lorenzo Booker made a few nice catches out of the backfield.
On defense the strength of unit looks to be at linebacker. A.J. Nicholson really stood out today with several nice hits and a nice interception on Sexton. The North Carolina native is really breaking well on the ball. In addition to the interception, he had several nice breakups.
Backup middle linebacker Buster Davis also had several nice hits on wide receivers that were catching passes underneath.
Antonio Cromartie is another young buck that making his presence known by being quite physical.
Right defensive end Willie Jones, Jr. looks surprising good early on in practice. Today he pressure Rix a few times and forced him to scramble. If the former Miami Carol City standout can stay healthy, it could be a huge boost to the pass-rush.
It looked like Tallahassee Lincoln All-American Fred Rouse attended practice today. He also visited Florida State last weekend unofficially for the Duke game.
Other players that visited last weekend unofficially were Ath Paul Ohara (Cross City, Dixie County), OL Gage Crews (Bainbridge (GA)), and LB Dan Foster (Blakely (GA) Early County).
