After the Murray State game, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher mentioned that two blue-chip recruits from the class of 2012, Mario Edwards Jr. and Chris Casher, would likely take a redshirt this season.

With the news of Brandon Jenkins being out for the season because of his foot injury, the decision to redshirt either could be in jeopardy. Let's assume the shirts stay on.

Because Jenkins and Cornellius Carradine are set to graduate and Bjoern Werner could leave early for the NFL draft, the decision does make some sense because the two young guns probably wouldn't see too much playing time, anyway.

Here is how the 2013 defensive end depth chart would look if Jenkins and Werner return:

  • Jenkins (6-3/260), Sr.: Would have a redshirt available
  • Werner (6-4/255), Sr.: Could leave early for the NFL
