Ten players from Florida State’s 2023 squad were selected in the 2024 NFL Draft. It is unfortunate that the College Football Playoff selection committee did not believe this team had the talent to go up against the greatest in the league.

Regretfully, the Seminoles are at a loss for what to do at this point save go on and learn from the experience. Of the ten draft selections, head football coach Mike Norvell has reason to be exceedingly proud of that.

When they fell at home to FCS opponent Jacksonville State on a last-second touchdown, some people believed that this football team had reached an all-time low. The Seminoles, who have gone 28-7 in their last 35 games, have responded, though.

In order to provide veteran depth where it was needed, Norvell made the decision to keep pounding the transfer portal. The Seminoles were able to start the turnaround because of that leadership. Johnny Wilson, a former wide receiver for Arizona State, was one guy he added.

While Wilson was listed at 6’7″, he was not properly utilized and dealt with injuries during his time with the Sun Devils. It did not take long for the big-bodied playmaker to become a dynamic weapon for quarterback Jordan Travis and the offense.

During his two seasons with Florida State, he recorded 84 receptions for 1,514 yards and seven touchdowns. It was unfortunate that Wilson dealt with two concussions during his final season in the garnet and gold. I believe that his statistics could have been better.

There was a portion of the fanbase that questioned why Wilson declared for the draft instead of coming back to Tallahassee for another season. However, when there is an opportunity for life-changing money for him and his loved ones, that is always a valid reason to declare.

Wilson has a chance to establish himself in the explosive offense even though the Philadelphia Eagles selected him in the sixth round of the draft. You can never teach size, as a wise man once stated. The wide receiver’s wishes came true on Friday when he signed a formal contract with the Eagles.
