Florida State football, recruiting news: NFL Draft day is finally here

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports


- The Tomahawk Nation staff has published draft profiles for former Seminoles Jalen Ramsey, Roberto Aguayo, and Lamarcus Brutus, with more to come today.

- In each of Sports Illustrated's four experts' final mock drafts, Ramsey is projected to be taken no later than fourth overall to the Dallas Cowboys.

- Although he is able to play virtually anywhere in the secondary, Ramsey has a preferred position for his NFL career.

- In his final seven-round mock draft, Fox Sports' Peter Schrager has four Florida State alums being selected in this weekend's NFL Draft.


- ESPN's Chris Low includes a pair of Florida State Seminoles on his list of rising juniors who could leave school early after the 2017 season.

- The stage is set for a staggering number of first-round draft picks in this year's NFL Draft to have been rated as blue-chip prospects in high school, as relayed by Bud Elliott.

Using SB Nation's mock draft (and yes, mock drafts are not perfect), I logged the 247Sports Composite recruiting ranking of all 31 projected first-round picks. I think recruiting rankings do a great job on the whole, and what I found surprised even me: nine five-stars, 14 four-stars, three three-stars and five two-star or unranked recruits.


- ESPN released its first edition of the 2017 recruiting class rankings and Florida State opens with the No. 9 recruiting class in the nation.

- FSU recently offered 2017 four-star safety Grant Delpit.
