Jammie Robinson Drafted By Carolina Panthers

TALLAHASSEE – Florida State defensive back Jammie Robinson was selected in the fifth round of the 2023 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers with the 145th overall pick on Saturday.

Robinson’s selection extends Florida State’s streak to 40 consecutive NFL Drafts with at least one player picked. That streak, which began in 1984, is the eighth-longest active streak in the nation entering the 2023 draft. Florida State now has 294 NFL Draft picks in its history, including 203 during the 40-year streak, and Robinson is the 35th FSU defensive back drafted in the last 36 years.

Robinson was a back-to-back first-team All-ACC selection, Florida State’s first defender to earn consecutive first-team All-ACC honors since Jalen Ramsey in 2014-15, in both of his seasons after transferring into the program for the 2021 season. He started 24 of 25 games played at FSU, totaling 183 tackles, including 12.0 for loss with 1.0 sack, five interceptions, eight pass breakups, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He led the team in tackles in both 2021 and 2022, registering 84 stops in 2021 and 99 in 2022.

In 2022, Robinson was named a first-team All-American by the Senior Bowl and second-team All-American by The Athletic. The Cordele, Georgia, native made a season-high 13 tackles and one pass breakup against No. 22 Wake Forest and matched his season high of 13 tackles, including his first collegiate sack, one fumble recovery and one pass breakup in FSU’s 35-32 Cheez-It Bowl win over Oklahoma. He also recorded double-digit tackles in the 45-38 victory over Florida and the 41-16 win over Georgia Tech. In the 2021 season finale, he recorded a career-high 18 tackles, including a career-best 1.5 for loss, and one interception at UF to become the only player in America with at least 16 tackles and one interception in a game in 2021.

Robinson is the fifth Seminole drafted by the Panthers and joins 2019 first-round pick Brian Burns in Charlotte. Live coverage of the 2023 NFL Draft continues on ESPN, ABC and NFL Network.
