Not that all 14 will get drafted, but at least 9 or 10 will imo ( the record is 14 fwiw ) and 9 or 10 would be a high for FSU lately
That is a nice start to Jimbo and FSU reestablishing its pipeline to the NFL, and a tool that will help FSU on the trail in 2014 and beyond for sure
Another QB, a host of DE's/DT's and solid skill talent across the board.... even an OL

fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
Three W's In My Life: Ward, Weinke, and Winston
Think we're sending 12. Al?
imo all these players will be drafted
That is 11 for sure drafted
On the fence would be Chris Thompson, Nick Moody and Greg Reid
I don't see anybody taking Rodney Smith but he would be 15 and the new record if somehow all of them get picked
If Joyner and Jones left, then FSU might have gotten the record easily
And he still manages to lose to Nc St every other year. Nc St hasn't sent 14 to the combine in 10 years. We are far superior to all ACC teams other than Clemson talent wise. If we lose any game other than Clemson or UF next year FSU needs to move on. I love Jimbo but these Nc St and UVA type loses are really fvcking unacceptable. The problem with our fanbase is this is acceptable and winning the ACC is the top goal. The talent we have the ACC should be locked up week 1 like the dynasty years. Yeah the game has changed but our talent level is right there with Bama. If Saban was coaching this team we would shit all over the ACC. It's year 4 and absolutely no excuses for us not playing or Atleast in the run for a title come December. I'm a realist and know you love to flame nova so flame on bro.
Dumb post, it was year 3 under Jimbo
Expecting him to win every game is a waste of time, do what you want though
Ill tell you what isn't unacceptable = winning the ACC and BCS bowl game for the first time in almost 10 years and exceeding my expectations last year ( thought they would lose 3 or 4 games )
Anybody that thought FSU was going unbeaten last year is a moron, not a realist
Last years talent was not Bama's level, and if you think that you are dumber than I realized

easily the best parts of this failure of a post
The ACC was far easier in the dynasty years as well, you are clearly lost and don't know a god damn thing about anything
Thanks for the laugh buddy
Yet Saban takes over a lesser talented bama team and plays for the SEC title and plays UFs best team ever to the wire and wins a title in year 3. Jimbo takes over a roster that is the most talented in the ACC (mind you he's already been there for 2) and it takes him 3 years to win the ACC. I know Saban is the best coach in college football and comparing Jimbos results to his isn't fair at all. But this is the ACC and it is terrible in football. Honest discussion Nova. With Louisville joining this confrence are you concerned?? As of right now Strong is by far a better gameday coach than Jimbo. Strong will be able to upgrade his talent level now with the move to the ACC. If Jimbo would hire a OC and trust his coaches 100% and let them do there thing I think as turn the corner and become elite. What Jimbo has done for this team off the field is amazing. Only Nole fans seen how terrible we were in strength and conditioning, nutrition and the support the players got mentally. But his on field coaching and trust in Trickett is a serious concern.
Jimbo or Jumbo
It's perspective at this point. FSU will get kids on the name alone, but development or ability is in the eye of the beholder. Bama is probably the only school that deserves benefit of the doubt and they're even at the tipping point now where talent is surpassing development.
SoCal reached it and went beyond it, as did UF under Meyer. Saban has to be killing himself right now to maintain but shows no sign of stopping.
Big deal, we sent 13 last yr off a 6-6 team.
It's pretty obvious you are fucking under 17 years old. Does your puny mind not let you have an adult conversation? Wtf is your problem?? Why is it all you do is flame if someone doesn't agree with you?? I tend to think I'm not the only one that thinks this way about fsu. How many players is nc st sending to the combine this year? 3 or 4?? When we went to nc st we probably had about 30 guys on our roster that will eventually be invited to the combine when all is said and done SND WE FVCKING LOST!!! It's a problem no matter what you tend to think or believe
I think you worry too much
Jimbo probably wins the ACC in year one if Ponder's bitch ass doesn't get hurt for that game against VT
Also football in the ACC is far better than its perception nationally, and everybody gives FSU its best shot
Losses here and there as you are building a new identity is part of the process, relax a little brah
If we had a QB with moxy this group would have been the one losing to Bama this year. JMO.
calls me under 17, then freaks out and goes all caps on us
Im not here for adult conversations, Im here to yell my opinion and laugh at cheese dicks like you when you freak out
Only 6 were drafted. None in the first 2 rounds though.
Still more drafted players then FSU and UF, all I'm saying it's not a big deal
Its not though, upsets happen all the time
Especially to teams ranked #10 in america who aren't national title contenders
You act like FSU lost by 20 points, they didn't.... they lost by one on the road, after 3 4th down conversions and after a 16-0 first half... in a game without its best OL, its not that serious bro
It sucks, but it was one of 2 losses last year... and that is improvement no matter how you slice it
I will say this and I may be wrong because I don't read FSU boards, but Clemson is your only legit competition and they seem to believe if they go 1-1 vs us and you they will win a national title.
Is it like that on Nole boards? Not like we have a chance, but if we win 1 of those games we're guaranteed to face Bama and will win.
Trust me man I don't worry. If we win we win. I loved fsu football since I was 6 and I'm 29 now. I just call it like I see it. I hope Jimbo gets it together and stays as long as bobby did. Jimbo is a awesome person but I think he has big gameday and trust problems. If we lose to a better team or will lose playing good football then I can live with it. But the way we lost our 2 games last year and UVA the year before is unacceptable.
1- Jimbo ain't staying that long even if he wins more titles
2- Jimbo has been a HC for 3 years, no sh*t he has things he needs to improve
3- The only thing unacceptable to me is expecting a first time HC to not have bad losses in major division 1 football for the first few years
But carry on brah, clearly Im the one being ridiculous
Ugh, what ?
Neither of you will sniff a national title next year
But USCe is better than Clemson, its been proven these past few years and isn't changing next year
As of right now there is at least one major talking head putting four different Noles in the first round.
EJM, M.Watson, Bjoern, XRhodes
EJM as in E.J Manuel ??? he won't sniff the 1st rd.
I expect Werner to be the only Nole to go in the 1st rd.
That is what everybody said about Ponder too, you have no clue what NFL teams are thinking
Would I take EJ in round 1 ? nope, would you ? nope... but that doesn't mean dick
