Last year, the San Francisco 49ers drafted two Florida State Seminoles in DE Tank Carradine and ILB Nick Moody in the second and sixth-rounds respectively, which ultimately ended an 18-year drought of not drafting a Seminole, as I tweeted:

An honor that goes to FB William Floyd, as he was the last Seminole drafted by the 49ers, before GM Trent Baalke abruptly ended that streak, the 49ers find themselves in the market of selecting yet another Florida State product in 2014.
Analysis: Benjamin plays in another conference that Baalke loves to pull from in the ACC. Just look at last year when they selected both DE Tank Carradine and LB Nick Moody, both coincidentally played for Florida State, making Benjamin an ideal target. Another big body receiver the 49ers are targeting as Benjamin is listed at 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds, he would be a nice addition to the 49ers’ redzone offense. A player that will wow NFL analysts with his potential and physical physique, there is no question Benjamin will be atop the wide receiver position for the 49ers to target.
With the 49ers set to visit Florida State’s campus tomorrow, we will keep you updated as Pro Days are a strong indicator of the 49ers interest in first or second-round talents.
