TALLAHASSEE -- Florida State’s past two starting quarterbacks have been first-round NFL draft picks. That hasn’t been lost on quarterback Jameis Winston.
On Wednesday, the redshirt freshman discussed what he was able to learn from EJ Manuel as he sat behind him last season.
“It was great to have EJ there just for me to be available to observe him,” Winston said. “Just being able to watch him and how he’s able to process things, I can kind of put that to my game because we have similar games.”
• Redshirt sophomore Jacob Coker, who was beaten out by Winston in the final week of camp, said he is not upset watching from the bench.
“I love it because we’re 2-0, and he’s performed the way that everyone has expected him to perform,” Coker said. “I’m not as impressed as everyone else is because I’ve seen it happen in practice every day. I know what he can do, he’s one heck of a player and I’m proud of him.”
