Earlier this year, I wrote how FSU football could have double-digit players selected in the 2024 NFL Draft. That would be the first time in nearly a decade for the Noles after only having two players taken in the past two drafts. Several draft-eligible guys decided to come back for a chance to win the ACC and a National Championship. They accomplished the first goal but got robbed of the chance to complete the ultimate goal two weeks ago when the College Football Playoff Committee left them out of the playoffs. It was an unprecedented move, which relegated the Noles to an NY6 Orange Bowl against Georgia. It's a game that ultimately means nothing because the narratives are set. Here's a list of FSU players declaring for the 2024 NFL Draft:
There will be more players to come like Keon Coleman and others. These players will not play in the Orange Bowl against Georgia (aside from Jarrian Jones). Fans must understand it's not worth it to play in a glorified scrimmage that won't mean anything, even if they win.
