Florida State cornerback Marquez White saw his dreams become reality on Saturday when he was announced as the sixth-round selection of the Dallas Cowboys, making him the 216th overall pick.

White, who started at FSU as a two-sport athlete (football and basketball) before electing to focus on football, started all 13 games at cornerback for the Seminoles in both 2015 and 2016, emerging as a consistent member of the Florida State secondary at the field CB spot.

Over his two years as a starter, White recorded four interceptions, six pass breakups, and five tackles for loss. He played opposite 2016 first round selection Jalen Ramsey in 2015 before serving as the returning starter alongside sophomore Tarvarus McFadden in his senior season.

White is the fourth Seminole to be taken in the 2017 edition of the NFL Draft, joining Dalvin Cook, DeMarcus Walker, and Rod Johnson. White is the only Seminole currently on the Dallas roster.
