Jameis Winston was selected No. 1 overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After him, 10 more Seminoles were selected in the NFL draft, giving Florida State a total of 29 selections in the past three years, which is a record. The 29 players taken from FSU breaks Miami and USC's previous record.

After Winston, Eddie Goldman (Chicago Bears), Mario Edwards Jr. (Oakland Raiders) and Ronald Darby (Buffalo Bills) were chosen in the second round. P.J. Williams then heard his name called by the New Orleans Saints in the third round. Tre' Jackson was chosen in the fourth round by the New England Patriots. Rashad Greene (Jacksonville Jaguars) and Karlos Williams (Bills) were selected in the fifth round. Nick O'Leary was chosen by the Bills in the sixth round. Bobby Hart was selected by the New York Giants in the seventh round.

It's an incredible accomplishment to put that many players in the NFL in a three-year span. It says a lot about the Florida State program.
