For a university that has Deion Sanders, Derrick Brooks, Walter Jones and others to their name, Florida State has not churned good NFL defensive linemen.
Travis Johnson, taken by the Texans with one of the early first-round picks in the history of the team, added two sacks for the franchise which would be a half a sack for his four seasons in Houston.
Jamal Reynolds saw his sack totals decrease from two to one to zero in his three flame out years with the Green Bay Packers after his selection of 10th overall in 2001.
Corey Simon did have a decent career with 32 sacks as a defensive tackle, but his production doesn't warrant the Eagles taking his sixth in 2000. Also, his career only got worse from his rookie season with his sack total never reaching the amount of sacks he had in his rookie campaign.
FSU's biggest bust came in 1998 when the Arizona Cardinals took Andre Wadsworth third overall. The team probably didn't think that it would equate to three seasons by picking Wadsworth third, but that's exactly what happened as the defensive end had eight sacks.
Derrick Alexander deserves blame because of his 20 sacks in six seasons as the 11th pick by the Minnesota Vikings in 1995.
The Seminoles do have Darnell Dockett playing at a high level with the Arizona Cardinals, but they've also had 2009 second-round pick Everette Brown be a bust.
The bottom line for NFL teams is this: Find other defensive positions to take when scouting FSU.
