Let’s check in on biggest off-season storyline for each top 25 team – from ESPN. 

For the ACC teams, we follow here,  in the top 25 this is what ESPN had to say.

2. Florida State Seminoles

How does the offense come together? Deondre Francois is solidified at quarterback, but there will be changes around him. Last year it was about the supporting cast helping Francois. Now the redshirt sophomore will need to help elevate the play of his teammates. He’ll likely have a few new offensive linemen and three new receivers, and both units struggled through parts of 2016. Oh, and no Dalvin Cook anymore, too.– Jared Shanker

6. Clemson Tigers

Who will replace Deshaun Watson? You don’t need a depth chart to figure out the No. 1 spring question for the defending national champions. There are three top contenders: junior Kelly Bryant, redshirt freshman Zerrick Cooper and early enrollee freshman Hunter Johnson. Coach Dabo Swinney hasn’t ruled out playing multiple quarterbacks, but ideally one player emerges at the end of spring. – Andrea Adelson

16. Miami Hurricanes

What can Mark Richt do to replace Brad KaayaRicht first made his name developing quarterbacks at Florida State, and now he’ll need to do it for Miami to get the Canes to their first ACC title game. Is redshirt freshman Jack Allison, No. 68 in the 2016 ESPN 300, ready to command the offense? – Jared Shanker

18. Louisville Cardinals

How can the offensive line help Lamar Jackson get back on top? The Heisman Trophy winner saw his productivity fall off as his offensive line struggled in the final month of the season so the mission is twofold. Mike Summers takes over as offensive line coach to help improve a group that has allowed 129 sacks over the past three years. Jackson needs to work on his accuracy and decision-making, too. – Andrea Adelson

25. Virginia Tech Hokies

Can Justin Fuente keep working his magic with QBs? In his first year at Virginia Tech, Fuente got his hands on Jerod Evans and in one season turned him into a 10-win quarterback. Can the offensive whiz do it again with a quarterback even younger than Evans? Redshirt freshman Josh Jackson looks to be the favorite, but he won’t have Isaiah Ford or Bucky Hodges to throw to anymore.– Jared Shanker
