Recruiting:

- Florida State continues to make records for themselves.

-Chris Hayes from the Orlando Sentinel wrote an excellent piece about what led new four-star safety commit Cyrus Fagan to Tallahassee.

- The 'Noles handed out an offer to 2017 three-star defensive end Aaron Odom from Callaway (Miss.). He currently holds six offers from FSU, Alabama, Louisiana-Lafyette, Southern Miss, Ole Miss and Mississippi State.

Football:

Here are what some NFL Draft analyzers said about Jalen Ramsey's performance in the NFL Scouting Combine:

The impressive outing and Ramsey's strong play over the last three years in Tallahassee leave little question about his athletic bona fides. The one question that teams will have to ponder about Ramsey is about where he will make the most impact in the NFL after seeing time at both safety and corner over the course of his collegiate career.

There's no question who the star was for the defensive backs at the 2016 NFL Combine. Florida State's Jalen Ramsey was one of the bigger backs there, but still posted a solid 40-yard dash time and ridiculous numbers in the vertical and broad jumps.

Still, it's hard to be impressed with anyone more than Ramsey. The Florida State product, who is so good he could feasibly star at safety or cornerback at the next level, flashed all of the physical skills in workouts. His 4.41-second time in the 40 ranked among the 10 best of the day, and he led everyone with a vertical leap of 41.5 inches and a 135-inch broad jump.

"I can play where they need me to. I feel like I can work outside, in the slot or play deep," Ramsey said of his NFL position, per Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official website. "I have a lot to learn, have to study receivers, learn the defense I'm in, but I think if I put the work in, I'll be able to move around if they need me to, but I'll do whatever a team, or the coaches want me to do.
