's Week 2 Stock Report

Heading into the final week of spring practice Florida State has seen several players play well this spring, while others have been inconsistent. In this week's Stock Report we look at who's been up and who's been down as the spring game approaches this weekend.

NoleDigest has been tracking the progress of Florida State's players throughout the spring. In this week's Stock Report we look at who excelled in week 2, and those who need to step it up as the spring game approaches this weekend.

Stock Up

Brandon Jenkins- The early enrollee has been better than expected and is ahead of schedule. In Monday's mini-scrimmage Brandon had 4 sacks, which proved that the work Jenkins is putting in is paying off. Each practice Brandon has gotten better, and he has put on nearly 20 pounds since he arrived in January.

• Jermaine Thomas- Some close to the program thinks he is starting to assert himself as the starting running back for the ‘Noles. On Monday Jermaine was electric as he showed big play ability. While he needs to work on picking up the blitz better Jermaine looks primed for a strong 2009.

Christian Ponder- He's improved over the past week or so. In the scrimmage last Saturday he was 7-13, making plays time after time. On Monday Christian had another huge day passing for 228 yards and a touchdown. If Ponder can keep progressing, the offense will be set heading into the summer.

Stock Down

• Korey Mangum- Korey has struggled this past week. Simply put he had a terrible scrimmage Monday giving up play after play, and missing tackles that turned into huge gains. FSU needs to find a starter at rover this spring, but it looks like that competition will not be settled until fall.

• Wide Receivers- As a whole they need to get better catching the ball. This is what is keeping them from consistent and what is keeping them from taking the next step.

• Ty Jones- The biggest reason he's on this list is due to the fumbles and inconsistency he has had. He'd make one play here, and then make an error the next few. The fumbles aren't a concern as Jones has been battling a sprained thumb. The word Coach Fisher uses is consistency, and Ty hasn't been that yet.
