Pender was a back that showed some promise for FSU, but couldn’t stay on the field. He appeared in just three games last season, opening the season with 92 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries against Texas State. FSU should be fine at running back without Pender, as they still have Dalvin Cook, who rushed for 1,691 yards and 19 touchdowns in 2015.
