The 2019 NFL Draft is finally here, providing us all with another glimpse of football after the conclusion of spring practice. Florida State will not be as recognized as it has been in the past, but there are still some Seminoles whose names figure to be called in Nashville.
Leading the way, of course, is edge defender Brian Burns. We’ve kept you updated on just where Burns, and some other ’Noles, could be headed, via our mock-draft tracker. These projections fluctuate frequently, as the draft process is very much a living, breathing entity. But the Fort Lauderdale product looks like a first-round selection. The road to the league for other ’Noles seems less certain. Here are the FSU players, aside from Burns, who participated in this year’s NFL Combine:
- Defensive lineman Demarcus Christmas
- Receiver Nyqwan Murray
The first round of the 2019 NFL Draft will transpire on Thursday night at 8 pm. The second and third rounds will take place on Friday, beginning at 7 pm, with rounds four, five, six, and seven wrapping things up on Saturday, at noon. ABC, ESPN, and NFL Network will broadcast the draft, along with commentary and analysis.
We’ll post updates in this piece as Florida State players come off the board, with links to separate pieces on those individuals. Be sure to stick around Tomahawk Nation after that, as several Seminoles could sign undrafted free agent deals.
- As expected, Burns became a first-round selection on Thursday evening. The Carolina Panthers grabbed the edge defender with the 16th overall pick.
- Demarcus Christmas is the latest ’Nole to be drafted as the Seattle Seahawks scooped him up with the 209th pick in the sixth round.
