With the season at hand, here's a segment-by-segment look at the Seminoles moving forward:
The Seminoles return their entire starting line from 2009, which helped pave the way for the ACC's No. 2 total offense (421.4 ypg). Combined, the quintet brings 142 career starts to the table and forms one of the most formidable units in the nation. All five were nominated for All-ACC honors a year ago by the league coaches.
Senior left guard Rodney Hudson, a consensus pre-season All-American, was the ACC's 2009 Jacobs Blocking Award winner and is poised to become the first offensive lineman in league history to earn All-ACC honors for four seasons.
Redshirt senior center Ryan McMahon is the Iron Man of the unit. With 29 consecutive starts over the football, the three-time Rimington Award candidate could become FSU's all-time leader in career starts this season.
Junior left tackle Andrew Datko, one of the nation's finest pass protectors, brings a streak of 25 consecutive starts into the season. He allowed just two sacks in '09 and was ACC Lineman of the Week with a silencing performance against UNC's vaunted pass rush.
Junior right tackle Zebrie Sanders and junior right guard David Spurlock ranked first and second on the squad with 39 and 36 knockdown blocks, respectively, and have started side-by-side in 19 of the last 20 games.
