Florida State's young wide receivers have drawn both praise and criticism this spring, and it's no surprise - they've got some enormous shoes to fill.

Replacing departed wideouts Kenny Shaw and Kelvin Benjamin won't be easy, but one of the leading candidates to take a shot is freshman wide receiver Jesus Wilson.


Gene Williams - Warchant.com

Jesus Wilson has made strides as FSU's young wide receivers look to step into a larger role.
"You know, I need to step up," Wilson said. "We lost two big receivers last year, Kenny and Kelvin, so it's my turn to step up."

Wilson has drawn the most consistent praise of any wide receiver not named Rashad Greene, and appears to be in the running for one of the open receiver slots. He said he's worked to be consistent with his route-running and timing.

"I've gotten pretty solid," Wilson said. "I just have to work on my alignment, a.ssignment, technique. That's what Coach is really getting on us about. We have to get the timing with Jameis. Me and him are building good chemistry."

That hasn't saved Wilson from plenty of earfuls from both Jimbo Fisher and Jameis Winston as both have pushed the wide receivers to get up to speed to keep FSU's offense working. Fisher said the wideouts have been taking the critiques fairly well.

"They understand it because it's not personal," Fisher said. "When I get off this field I'm with these kids 1000 percent, but between these white lines there's a standard you can't fall below. … It's our job to make you the player you can be not the one you are. And you got to understand it's not a personal thing, we're not attacking you personally, and you got to take coaching."

A buzz around Wilson's name is nothing new - both Greene and now-departed Lamarcus Joyner had positive things to say about Wilson even before last season. Wilson said he made an effort to work out with Greene in the offseason before 2013, and that bond has strengthened.

"Me and Rashad are really close," Wilson said. "he took me under his wing this year and said I have to step up. He said 'it's your turn, it's your shot.' I just have to stay focused and stay hungry."

Wilson doesn't have the size of Benjamin, but he said he's trying to make up for that with speed and route-running precision. He also said he's fine playing in the slot or on the outside, and doesn't have a real preference for either.

Either way, this spring has been an adjustment for Wilson, who now knows just how much different watching Kenny Shaw run routes compared to having to actually do it himself.

"I have to learn every position at wide receiver," Wilson said. "I've really been in the playbook heavy later because I have to step up."

Winston hitting the road

Sophomore quarterback Jameis Winston will participate in the Seminoles' final spring practice on Thursday afternoon, then travel to Atlanta to join the baseball team for a series against Georgia Tech.

He'll be available in Friday's night's game against the Yellow Jackets, then fly back to Tallahassee for Saturday's spring game. From there, he'll fly back to Atlanta and rejoin the baseball team for the series finale on Sunday.

"He likes baseball and football," Fisher said. "Whatever he has to do for his team to play, just like he did last year, that's the part of being a two-sport guy. You have to bounce back and very few are capable. And he's one of them."

Winston has a 1.76 ERA in 15.1 innings for the baseball team this year with four saves in 11 games. He's missed only one football practice this spring while balancing the two sports.

"You get a sore arm but he's been pretty good," Fisher said. "I think it'll start to get better now. I think you see it a little bit in his eyes, the tiredness."

Through a spokesman, Winston declined requests to speak to the media this week.

Stample out with shoulder surgery

Florida State's roster for the spring game took another blow on Wednesday as Fisher announced that defensive tackle Nile Lawrence-Stample will miss two months with a shoulder injury.

Fisher said the surgery was anticipated, but FSU wanted Lawrence-Stample to get as much spring work in as possible before missing time.

Lawrence-Stample's absence leaves FSU with three defensive tackles out for the spring game - and the position was already somewhat thin beforehand. Currently, Lawrence-Stample, Derrick Mitchell and Justin Shanks are all out with injuries along the defensive front.

Notables

Mario Edwards Jr. did not participate in Wednesday's practice, though he was dressed out. Chris Casher and Demarcus Walker split reps at defensive end in Edwards' absence.
Cameron Erving continued to work out at center along with Ruben Carter, but during team drills, Austin Barron resumed his role as first team center.
Tre Jackson was back and participating in practice on Wednesday. Linebacker Terrance Smith was also back. Both have bounced in and out of practice this spring, most likely for precautionary reasons. Matthew Thomas took a few reps with the first team at linebacker with Ukeme Eligwe out with a foot injury.
Running back Mario Pender was out of practice, while fullback Freddie Stevenson took many of the reps at tailback in single-back sets. Fisher mentioned that Pender may have gotten "dinged in the head" on Monday.

Went to the game and FS looked good at RB! Punting sucked, Winston needs to focus on football, WRs worry me and oline will be stacked. Whitfield is fast as hell. Should be a good season.

Oh yea chad Kelley off the team at Clemson

You all can't really believe that he just walked into the Publix and stole that sh*t...

Either it was an honest mistake or he was used to getting sh*t for free from there.
