FSU star to wear different jersey number on offense, defense

By Jason Parker It could be said that Jalen Ramsey is the top athlete on the 2015 Florida State Seminoles football team. He is one of the top defensive players in the country, and this year will be adding kick return duties to his resume.

Where Are They Now? The 2014 Draft Seminoles

This is a similar setup to last year. Florida State enters the game undefeated and among the nation's top ranked teams. We know the big names. We know what to expect. But things are not always that simple. FSU has not rolled over opponents this year. Winston is not the center of college football and their defense is not suffocating like last year's unit. To get a better feel for...

FSU draft roundup: Fewer picks than 2013, but starting potential exists

Florida State's 2014 draft class was seven, far fewer than the 11 from last year.
