From @AschoffESPN: since '09 (post-Tebow), @GatorsFB has had 10 starting QBs. None passed for 2,500 yards or thrown 13 TDs in season. Wow.— Ivan Maisel (@Ivan_Maisel) March 2, 2017
- Florida State QBS have achieved each of those feats every season since 2010 with the exception of 2015 which saw Everett Golson and Sean Maguire split duties as starting quarterback.
- One unnamed NFL source according to Gridiron Now blasted Dalvin Cook and warns any team looking to draft the Florida State legend.
“Fumbles and arrests are a bad combination,” an anonymous “NFC Executive” was quoted as saying about Cook on NFL.com. “He’s got a lot of ability, but he’s got on the field problems with ball security and multiple arrests off of it. You have to decide if he will be responsible with more money and more time on his hands. If you have any doubts, just wait around for another running back because there will be plenty this year.”
