FSU's Dalvin Cook, Rod Johnson to weigh NFL decisions after season

TALLAHASSEE — The Florida State football team could lose two juniors to the NFL as star running back Dalvin Cook and left tackle Rod Johnson both have decisions to make following the season.

Jimbo Fisher gave some insight on Cook, who could likely be a first round pick in April's draft, during his radio call-in show Wednesday night.


"He hasn't made one yet," Fisher said of Cook's decision. "But if I was a betting man, Dalvin would go pretty high in the draft."

Cook, who broke Florida State's all-time rushing record at Syracuse last week, needs just one rushing touchdown to own the school record with Saturday's game against Florida and a bowl game likely on the schedule to finish the season.


When asked about possibly playing his last game in Doak Campbell Stadium, Cook smiled and said: "I've got no thoughts on that. I'm going to play in a great environment and go play."

Fisher was asked by a young fan if Cook would return to help the Seminoles win a national championship.

"If he don't, we're still going to be in that hunt," Fisher told the fan. "Don't you worry about it."

Johnson, a three-year starter for the Seminoles, does not have the same upside near the top of mock draft boards as Cook, but is highly regarded as a potential NFL prospect.

Johnson also deflected comment on potentially playing his last home game, and inquiring about a NFL draft grade after the season.

"I might do all that after the season," Johnson said. "Right now I am just focused on finishing strong."
