Marvin Jones

The greatest linebacker in FSU football history. I have no idea how he didn’t make the list after looking at the production and the awards he won while donning the garnet and gold.

Here’s a list according to Nolefan.org:

Jones had 369 total tackles, 27 TFL, 5.5 sacks and three interceptions at FSU before getting drafted No. 4 overall in the 1992 NFL Draft by the New York Jets. No disrespect, but he deserves to be on that list over at least two guys listed easily.
