FSU Players Can Hit Historic Marks Early

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 15, 2013 – 4:32 pm

On Wednesday, 2013 fifth round pick draft pick Chris Thompson officially became a member of the Washington Redskins when he signed his first NFL contract.

Welcome to the big leagues.

Thompson was one of two Florida State University players that the Redskins selected in the fifth round as his college teammate, Brandon Jenkins, was picked just eight spots after the running back.

While the twosome have already made Burgundy and Gold history by becoming the first ever FSU teammates to be selected in the same draft class, they have a chance to be the best FSU prospects to ever come to the Nation’s Capital.

Just by stepping on the field.

Thompson and Jenkins were the seventh and eighth Seminoles selected by the Redskins since the draft’s institution in 1936.

Here’s a little (not so) fun fact—four of the first six Seminoles taken never even played in a game with the Redskins—seriously.

Position Name Year Drafted Games Played For Redskins

TE Tony Romeo

QB Ed Trancygier

LB Jack Shinholser

1966

DE Sterling Palmer

1993

49

DE Markus White

2011

Sterling Palmer was drafted in 1993 and played in the Nation’s Capital for four seasons where he totaled 49 appearances for 11 sacks.

In 2011, Markus White was selected in the seventh round and appeared in only three games before being released last October.

While the odds aren’t stacked against Thompson and Jenkins to claim the title as best FSU draftees to ever play for the Redskins, they do need to gameplan a strategy to conquer the FSU curse that is apparently hanging over the Redskins locker room.

Hail to the Redskins!
