FSU Offensive Line Grades through Sept. 24

Florida State offensive line performance takeaways with @Ricobert11

  • PFF is not a perfect scoring system. The graders cannot be 100% of the assignments on each play.
  • PFF CFB Scale: 90-100 Elite, 85-89 All-Conference, 70-84 Starter, 60-69 Backup, <60 replaceable
  • Grades for Julian Armella, Bryson Estes, etc should be viewed with the mindset that both run and passing block opportunities were less than 10 attempts each.
  • Maurice Smith is growing into a dependable center.
  • This is the second straight poor pass blocking game from Turnetine. The South Carolina transfer is getting beat on speed rushes. He turns his hips too soon instead of trying to stay between his defender and the quarterback. Turnetine still needs a large amount of coaching for a fifth year senior.
  • When Robert Scott returns from injury, Darius Washington could push Turnetine to the bench. Washington by the numbers has had two great games pass blocking.
  • Armella and Willis showed nice athleticism in their limited snaps. Willis picked up solid grades in his backup opportunities. Armella showed you his upside, he is raw but on the right track.
