Florida State sets new two-year FSU NFL draft record with 18 players drafted

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The results of the Jimbo Fisher era have already shown up on the field with a 45-10 record, two conference titles, two BCS bowls and a National Championship. Now, they are starting to show in the NFL draft as well. 

When Telvin Smith was selected by the 144th pick in the fifth round Saturday, he became the 18th player to be drafted over a two-year span, which is a new record for the Seminoles since the NCAA went to the 85-scholarship limit (drafts encompassing 1995-present), besting the old mark of 17 set in the 2005-06 drafts. 

Let's take a look at the players drafted in the 2013-14 drafts and those in the 2005-06 drafts.
