The former Florida State defensive back continues to impress with his NFL team

Florida State Football enjoyed the success of several contributors from the 2023 season being drafted to NFL teams. This further debunks the idea that the Seminoles were “not good enough” to be included in the College Football Playoff.

The hiring of defensive backs coach Patrick Surtain Sr. was a great success both in terms of the recruitment process and from a development perspective. The Seminoles had several talented pieces in high school that were notable, such as Renardo Green (49ers), Akeem Dent (Chargers) and Jarrian Jones (Jaguars).

Jarrian Jones was often a forgotten piece within the Seminoles secondary, where I’m very confident he heard what everyone was saying on Twitter (X). Jones decided to put his head down and work, despite what others said about him.

As a college football player, it’s hard not to focus on what social media was saying, especially when he was dealing with a variety of injuries that halted his development. During the 2023 season, the Mississippi native recorded 25 tackles (five for loss) and three interceptions (led the team).

It was a sensational campaign for the defensive back, with fans unsure of what to expect from him. The stellar performance in 2023 saw him drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the 96th overall pick in the third round of the 2024 NFL Draft.

It’s great to see that Seminole fans can continue to watch Jones develop at the next level. Ironically, Demetrius Harvey of Jaxdotcom reported that the former Seminole had an interception in practice yesterday and continues to put together impressive days today.

This is so essential in Jones’ development. Throughout his time at university, self-confidence has always been a big boost for him. I can’t wait to see how Jarrian continues to prove why the Jacksonville Jaguars made the best decision in selecting him.
