Cook a good fit with Packers? (1:21)

Florida State is hoping for a big season from Josh Sweat, who'll be healthy for the start of the 2017 season, which would be a first. He was recovering from major knee surgery in 2015, underwent minor knee surgery during 2016 and now is waiting for his finger to heal after surgery. If healthy, he's one of the more complete defensive ends in the ACC.

Seven schools remain in the mix for Dorian Thompson-Robinson, the nation's No. 4 dual-threat quarterback. Thompson-Robinson released his list of seven finalists via twitter, as Cal, Florida State, Michigan, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina and UCLA remain in the hunt to sign the No. 107 overall prospect and No. 2 uncommitted quarterback at this time. It looks like this could come down to a battle between Michigan and UCLA, as the Bruins established themselves early as the program to beat for Thompson-Robinson and his teammate, ESPN 300 tight end Brevin Jordan, while Thompson-Robinson's mother attended Michigan. Cal was not on his initial top-12 list, while Florida State and Oregon are programs to watch and could make a move.

After a 10-day spring break, Florida State came back to practice a little sloppy. Coach Jimbo Fisher said the energy was good, but as expected there was some rust and exhaustion. "They were supposed to be running [on break], but I don't know if they were."

How Florida State can make the CFP jump

The Seminoles are losing Dalvin Cook, but they should still contend for the playoff. Beating Dabo Swinney and Clemson would go a long way toward that goal.

Jimbo Fisher is concerned about the forced 10-day layoff in spring practice because of Florida State spring break, so I asked a player who has been through it three times. Northwestern senior Brad North called the break in camp "beneficial." Players get to relax, recuperate and refocus. "People get burned out," North said. On his spring break later this month, North will visit Texas and Mexico.

I don't think Jimbo Fisher was planning for trampoline and horseplay injuries, but it's a good thing Florida State's coach recruited close to 20 offensive linemen. Starter Alec Eberle is out following hip surgery, and backups Andrew Boselli and Baveon Johnson hurt an ankle. The causes of the ankles: a trampoline misstep and play wrestling.

Why so much optimism at Florida State? Part of the reason is the return of Derwin James, arguably the country's best safety. He's practicing with the team for the first time since September knee surgery. Right in front of James is new No. 8 Nyqwan Murray, a hero of the Orange Bowl win.

One of the men largely responsible for bringing Jameis Winston to Florida State is returning to Tallahassee. Former quarterbacks coach Dameyune Craig is a quality control coach for the Seminoles. He left FSU before the 2013 season for Auburn and coached at LSU last. Craig is an ace recruiter who Oregon considered this offseason.

There shouldn't be much concern with the torn labrum Tarvarus McFadden had repaired. He played with it last season, and it's not something that will hold him back in August when fall camp opens. The spring presented an opportunity to get it fixed now.
