Travis Johnson and Darnell Dockett are both doing pretty well currently. Bunkley suffered from holding out too long, but he's catching up. FSU DEs are usually the busts, with Peter Boulware and Kamerion Wimbley being the most recent exceptions to the rule. Jamal Reynolds, Reinard Wilson and Alonzo Jackson were guys that couldn't cut it in the NFL.
I'm wondering where Graham Gano will be drafted, if he is at all. He won the Groza award this year, and was the best PK FSU has had since Jano. I think he missed his first FG of the year, then hit like 18 straight. Tore his knee during practice just before the start of the season, and he said it was the best thing that ever happened to him, as he learned to focus more on the execution of the kick, and not just killing the ball. He missed the first 2-3 games, then came back and only missed 2 FGs the rest of the season, I think. He also took back over punting duties about half way through the season as well--he was originally named a pre-season AA as a punter.
Yeah, I know, I'm excited about a kicker. Antone Smith is about the only other FSU player that's not on defense that has even a slight chance of being drafted.
