Florida State is already starting to build a strong team heading in to the 2014 season, looking to defend their national championship. On Wednesday the school announced three First Team All ACC players will return in 2014 for the Seminoles.

Offensive linemen Cameron Irving and Tre’ Jackson will be back to protect Heisman Trophy quarterback Jameis Winston and help create running lanes for the ground game. Florida State ranked third in the ACC in rushing offense, averaging 203.14 rushing yards per game. Only Georgia Tech’s run-happy offense and Boston College with 2,000-yard rusher Andre Williams had better rushing offenses in the ACC last season.

Florida State will also bring back wide receiver Rashad Greene, the team’s leading receiver last season. Greene was one of two 1,000-yard receivers with 1,128 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. Together with Kelvin Benjamin, the Seminoles will have excellent targets to throw to in the passing game next fall. Greene did not have a touchdown in the BCS Championship game but he did have a key 49-yard reception to set up Florida State’s game-winning touchdown near the end of the game.

    Surprised but pleased to see Irving and Green coming back. Benjamin really needs to come back too. I’m hardly the one to tell guys to stay when they can make money, but I think he could get so much better at his craft before making the leap.

    Where are all the trolls? (mrwright212 speaking here, since they banned me for calling out the Ohio State fans).
