Jameis Winston came in at No. 17 on Pro Football Focus’ Top 25 under 25 players list, two spots behind Cowboys rookie QB Dak Prescott.
Winston hasn’t been able to eradicate the inconsistency from his game, but when he is on there are few better QBs in the league. This season he threw 28 touchdowns and when kept clean in the pocket completed 67.1 percent of his passes. He needs to improve his play under pressure and remove the bad-Jameis from his tape to take that next step.
You’ll find not one but two Seminoles on this list of Top Ten corner-backs in the NFL; with a very familiar name at No. 1.
Opposing quarterbacks targeted Rhodes 79 times in 14 games. It proved to be a fruitless endeavor, as Rhodes gave up an NFL-low 41.8 percent catch rate. One of his interceptions came against Carson Palmer and the Cardinals in Week 11. Rhodes ran the pick back for a touchdown and covered 121.03 yards of distance and clocked in at 22.4 miles per hour on the runback.
Not only was Jalen Ramsey a top 10 Corner-back according to PFF but he was also a top 10 rookie overall.
There were some struggles early on, but by the end of the season, Ramsey looked like the player worthy of his top-five draft selection. From Week 13 and on, Ramsey was the highest-graded cornerback in the entire NFL, allowing a passer rating of 37.8 when targeted.
Everyone’s favorite number 4 came in at No. 4 on ESPN’s Final top 50 players of the college football season.
Speaking of the recently departed all-time great; no one forced more missed tackles this past season than Dalvin Cook:

The ACC is losing its top 5 rated passers but you should still expect the league to be very good at the quarterback position.

Jonathan Isaac had his beast game a Seminole: 23 points, 10 rebounds, & 7 blocks.
Florida State continues to bolster its elite resume & one reason for that is the evolution of Dwayne Bacon.
The Gators could’ve used some of that 3 point magic that Notre Dame had last night:
