What’s better than another year of eligibility? Another year of eligibility with an NIL deal:

Historically Florida State is good at developing both five-star and three-star recruits.

3-stars: 16/107, 15 percent (7th)

4-stars: 22/116, 19 percent (30th)

5-stars: 16/27, 59.3 percent (10th)

Overall draft rate: 54/250, 21.6 percent (8th)

The Seminoles cracked the official top 10 in draft rate for both five-stars and three-stars, and those numbers reflected their success in overall draft rate.
