Read Time4 Minute, 30 Second

Kelvin Benjamin (2012-13)

  • Save

Kelvin Benjamin is best known in Tallahassee as the 6’5 WR that secured the National Championship winning catch from Jameis Winston in the 2014 Rose Bowl

A key factor in the 2013 Natinal Champions record setting offense. He had 54 catches for 1,011 yards and 15 TDs that season.

Drafted only after 2 seasons at FSU by the Carolina Panthers in 2014, with the 28th pick of the 1st round.

No doubt if he stayed in Tallahassee another season, Benjamin would be ranked higher on this list.

  Javon Walker (2000-01)

  • Save

Javon Walker spent 2 seasons in Garnet & Gold. Walker had 944 yards receiving & 7 TDs in 2001.

He showed enough talent to get drafted 20th overall in the 2002 NFL Draft.

  Anquan Boldin (1999-2002)

  • Save

 

Anquan Boldin came to Tallahassee as a QB. He was moved to WR and was a member of the 1999 title team.

Boldin missed all of 2001 with injury. In 2002, he had 65 receptions for 1,011 yards and 13 TDs.

In 2002, the Noles didn’t have the talent that the program had the previous 15 years but still made it to the Sugar Bowl as an underdog to face-off with the 12-1 Georgia Bulldogs, who were ranked 4th in the country.

In his final game Boldin caught a touchdown and wound up playing quarterback in the 2nd half. Throwing a TD pass in the Seminole defeat.

Boldin went on to have a HOF caliber career. He finished 9th all-time in the NFL record books for receptions.

He led the ACC in yards in 1995 and touchdowns in 1996. Even though he led the conference in TDs in ’96, it was only his 3rd highest total for a season.

When his career had ended, Green’s resume read 166 catches for 2,920 yards and 29 TDs

  Fred Biletnikoff (1962-64)

  • Save

Before Fred Biletnikoff was the spokes boy for  stickum or an NFL HOFer, he was the first great Florida State football player.

In 1964, Biletnikoff was a consensus All-American. He caught 70 balls for 1,179 yards and 15 TDs.

Biketnikoff was #1 in all three categories in the entire NCAA in ’64

  Rashad Greene (2011-14)

  • Save

Rashad Greene caught many passes, on many drives for 4 seasons. Personally one drive with the Noles stands out above all others.

That’s the 49-yard catch that set up the championship winning touchdown from Winston to Benjamin. In that title game, Greene had 9-147.

Greene left the Noles as the all-time team leader in catches and receiving yards. The yards are also 1st all-time in the ACC.

His career stats stand at 270 receptions for 3,830 yards and 29 TDs.

2014 was Greene’s finest season. He led the ACC in receptions and yards. He had 99 catches for 1,365 yards and 7 TDs

  • Save

Peter Warrick was a 2 time Consensus All-American for the Noles (98-99). After not showing out in the 1999 BCS championship game, Warrick came back to school. He would have been a very high draft pick if he turned pro but he wasn’t leaving school like that.

In the 2000 BCS title game, Warrick did what he had been doing since 1995. He had 6 grabs for 163 yards and 2 TDs and a punt return for a touchdown. #9 was the key factor in winning the Seminoles 2nd National Championship.

He’s the all-time FSU leader in touchdowns with 32 and led the country in TDs in 1998. Warrick also had 207 receptions leading to 3,517 yards.
