    FSU is all over today

    "The Seminoles return a stingy defense that was playing elite football at the end of last season," says Athlon Sports Managing Editor Mitch Light. "If the young weapons continue to develop around veteran quarterback EJ Manuel, Florida State will be the favorite to win the ACC."

    Three Florida State standouts were named preseason All-Americans, with punt returner Greg Reid being voted to the second team and defensive lineman Brandon Jenkins and kicker Dustin Hopkins making the third team. In addition, the FSU defensive line was ranked No. 2 nationally and best in the ACC. The secondary was rated No. 3 in the country and tops in the conference, while the wide receivers unit was tabbed No. 7 in the nation.

    Eleven Seminoles earned preseason All-ACC honors, including Jenkins, Hopkins, defensive back Lamarcus Joyner and Reid at punt returner on the first team. Wide receiver Rashad Greene, tight end Nick O'Leary, defensive lineman Bjoern Werner and defensive backs Xavier Rhodes and Greg Reid were named to the second team, while quarterback EJ Manuel, defensive lineman Timmy Jernigan and linebacker Christian Jones garnered third-team honors.
