Seminoles best current NFL players predominantly in secondary

FSU has been a premier college football program since the early 80’s. Not surprisingly, it’s also been a breeding ground for top NFL talent. While there are dozens of Seminoles in the NFL, who are the best of the best?

I believe the most talented players FSU has put into pro football in recent years are in the secondary. You will know all of these names and know that many more Noles are still early in their pro careers and looking to make a splash.

Here are my top 10 FSU players currently in the NFL.

10. Dalvin Cook, running back, Minnesota

An ACL injury early in in his rookie campaign derailed what was looking like a promising year. I’ve learned to not doubt DalCo on any level. He just adapts.

I remember watching his senior film from high school and thinking it’s impossible to translate into college and then saying the same thing as he transitioned to the NFL.

He has elite vision and patience only matched by the Steeler’s Le’Veonn Bell.

If healthy, Cook will be one of the premier backs in the NFL. In four games he averaged over 100 yards from scrimmage.

9. Jameis Winston, quarterback, Tampa Bay

Winston is easily one of my favorite Seminoles of all-time. Jaboo is the starting QB of the Buccaneers, unfortunately for Jameis, they aren’t good and haven’t been able to turn the corner.

I can’t place him higher on my list as QBs aren’t judged just off of stats, but wins. He’s by far the best-ever Seminole QB in the NFL.
