FSU football and the NFL Draft go together like peanut butter and jelly. The Noles have had an insane number of players selected since the first players drafted in 1951.
The Noles only had one player selected in the 2020 NFL Draft. Cam Akers was the only Nole took (2nd round), the first time only one Nole had been taken since Everett Brown in 2009.
The 2021 NFL Draft was a different story as multiple players had the potential for selection. Most people thought six players would be drafted, but the surprise of Marvin Wilson and a lesser extent Tamorrion Terry not hearing their names called reduced that number to four.
The good news is there’s a good shot the Noles will have multiple players taken in next year’s draft.
There are five players with an excellent shot and several other players that could creep into the mix depending on how the 2021 season transpires.
The COVID year with players not losing eligibility could factor into things as well. Here are five Noles who could hear their names called in next years draft.
