Seminoles Finalize a Couple Starters

FSU's depth chart is out and finally there is some closure on camp battles after the field corner and right tackle positions have been determined. 

At right tackle it's Menelik Watson, who despite having played just eight games of football, is poised to become the starter opposite Cam Erving, another lineman who's never taken a snap at his position in college. 

The battle was between Watson and Daniel Glauser, both seemed to have performed well in camp according to Fisher but it was ultimately Watson's potential that won out. 

"I thought Menelik was definitely the most efficient and he has a very big upside," Jimbo Fisher said earlier today. "Menelik played well in the scrimmage on Thursday, played extremely well on Saturday and he really brings a lot to the table."

Along the offensive line it will be Cam Erving at LT, Josue Matias at LG, Bryan Stork at C, Tre' Jackson at RG and Menelik Watson at RT.

Nick Waisome will be the team's starting field corner. He edged out Ronald Darby for the spot, though both will see plenty of playing time this season.

"Nick's been around, played very well, made a lot of good plays, can run, very intelligent guy who's been in our system," said Fisher. "I really thought he had a great camp."

Also, Rashad Greene will replace Greg Reid at punt returner. I have no idea when Greene was healthy enough to win the punt-return job, it seemed like every time we spoke to Jimbo during camp Rashad had been out with illness or just had an appendectomy or was still working back from one of those. It's kind of a testament to the sophomore receiver's athleticism that he still grabbed the job with such limited time.
