Florida State football: Jammie Robinson declares for NFL Draft
After returning to Tallahassee for another season in a Florida State Seminoles football uniform, safety Jammie Robinson is off to test the waters of the NFL Draft.
The first defensive back to earn first-team All-ACC honors twice in a row since Jalen Ramsey, Robinson has been a vital part of the Seminoles on defense for the past two seasons, leading the team in tackles in both years.
“First and foremost, I sincerely appreciate my teammates, coaches, family and fans at the University of South Carolina and the Florida State University community who have made the past four years so memorable. “, he wrote in a post on social networks. “To my family, thank you for the unconditional love and support. I wouldn’t be the man I am today. To my mom, thank you for being the best all-in-one mom and dad. To my coaches and teammates, I will cherish the memories we made and the lessons we learned together.
“I have been blessed to be surrounded by men who exemplify what it means to be hard working leaders and for that I am grateful to them. After careful consideration, I have decided to turn the page and start a new chapter so so…i’ve decided to declare myself for the 2023 nfl draft.”
From FSU Sports Info:
Robinson, of Cordele, Georgia, led Florida State with 86 tackles and five quarterback rushes, adding 4.0 tackles for loss, four pass breakups and one interception. Robinson had a game-high 13 tackles against Wake Forest to earn Defensive Back of the Week honors, and his interception came the following week against NC State. Robinson added 10 tackles against Florida in the regular season finale and pushed the Gators to an incomplete pass on their final play to secure a 45-38 win for the Seminoles.
The Seminoles are fourth nationally and lead the ACC with just 158.9 passing yards per game allowed.
Robinson is the first FSU player to earn first-team All-ACC honors in consecutive seasons since running back Dalvin Cook and offensive lineman Roderick Johnson in 2015-16; he is the first defensive player since defensive back Jalen Ramsey in 2014-15.
Before the FSU bowling game, Robinson almost declared himself for the draft with a sentimental tweet for his last game with the Seminoles.
