TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher approaches the midpoint of his team's spring practice schedule confident that the infusion of new talent being weaved into the Seminoles lineup will provide the reigning national champions the ability to repeat.

The Seminoles, who had 11 players drafted by NFL teams a year ago, are expected to have another prominent group selected in May. New defensive coordinator Charles Kelly has several holes to fill on defense, where tackle Timmy Jernigan, linebackers Telvin Smith and Christian Jones and defensive backs Lamarcus Joyner and Terrence Brooks are among those expected to be early draft picks this year.

Fisher said after Wednesday's practice that the defense did some "real nice things" that he saw "some really athletic guys" at all three levels, "front, linebackers and secondary."
