He was one of the best players on the Florida State football team the last two seasons.

And now he has a new home.

Jammie Robinson, the two-time All-ACC safety for the Seminoles, was drafted in the fifth round (145th pick overall) by the Carolina Panthers on Saturday, the final day of the 2023 NFL Draft.

The South Carolina transfer led the FSU defense in tackles each of the last two years. In 2021, he registered 85 tackles, including seven for loss, and a had a team-high four interceptions.

Last year, as one of the key cogs in the Seminoles’ 10-3 season, the Cordele, Ga., native had 99 tackles and one interception in helping lead a remarkable turnaround for the defense and for the team as a whole.

In Florida State’s comeback win over Oklahoma in the Cheez-It Bowl, Robinson had his first college sack to go along with a pivotal fumble recovery in the second half.

He became the first Florida State defender to earn back-to-back All-ACC selections since Jalen Ramsey in 2014 and 2015.

With Robinson’s selection, Florida State has now had at least one player selected in 40 straight NFL Drafts – which is tied for the eighth-longest active streak in the country.

He also became the 294th FSU player drafted in program histrory.

And he is the 47th defensive back drafted in school history, helping bolster the program’s claim as “DBU.”
