The NFL Draft is finished and seven Florida State players were selected. Kelvin Benjamin was the lone first round pick, going to the Carolina Panthers at twenty-eight. He will be a new wide receiver target for Cam Newton. Two players were taken in the second round, both defensive stars. LaMarcus Joyner went to the St Louis Rams as a defensive back while Timmy Jernigan went to the Baltimore Ravens as a tackle. Joyner will be on the defense with Michael Sam, the SEC Defensive Player of the Year. The third round added another Seminole defensive back to the Ravens' roster in Terrence Brooks. More offensive help went to the Atlanta Falcons in the fourth round as Devonta Freeman found a new home. The New England Patriots took Bryan Stork at offensive line at pick 105. The final pick of 2014 for the Seminoles was Telvin Smith in the fifth round. He was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars as a linebacker. After eleven picks last year, Florida State has a new two year record with eighteen total picks.

In addition to draft picks, six players were signed as free agents. Kenny Shaw will be joining much-celebrated first rounder Johnny Manziel on the Cleveland Browns while James Wilder Jr plays for the Ohio rival, Cincinnati Bengals. Christian Jones reportedly signed with the Chicago Bears as a linebacker while defensive lineman Jacobbi McDaniel joined Shaw in Cleveland. Demonte McAllister signed as a defensive lineman with the world champion Seattle Seahawks.
