New looks for some old ’Noles.

The names are the same— only the numbers have been changed. As is custom, those who’ve recently made the jump from the amateur to professional ranks are familiarizing themselves with a whole new set of numbers. Different playbook designations, different addresses, and certainly different bank account balances. But as far as fans are concerned, they typically begin to identify with a player based on his number, and the new jerseys of the Seminoles turned professional are now listed on NFL rosters.

  • Running back Dalvin Cook, the top ’Nole off the board, will wear No. 33 for the Minnesota Vikings.
  • Next drafted was defensive end DeMarcus Walker, who will sport the No. 57 for the Denver Broncos.
  • Defensive back Marquez White is headed to the Dallas Cowboys, where he’ll pull on the No. 39.
  • A pair of FSU players are headed for the Windy City: receiver Kermit Whitfield will don No. 2 for the Chicago Bears, and fullback Freddie Stevenson will wear No. 43.
  • Receiver Bobo Wilson has signed with the Buccaneers, and he’ll be Tampa Bay’s No. 85.
  • Although it’s not listed on the New York Giants’ official roster as of yet, receiver Travis Rudolph has posted an Instagram pic of himself in a No. 19 jersey.
  • Finally, offensive lineman Roderick Johnson, who was drafted by the Browns, has not yet been assigned a number. Leave it to Cleveland to pull up the rear.
