FSU All-Time Rankings: No. 74 William Floyd

We continue our countdown to kickoff with fullback William Floyd who comes in a No. 74 on our list.

William “Bar None” Floyd is the one of the top fullbacks to play at Florida State. At 6-foot-1, 242-pounds he was a nightmare to try and tackle in short yardage or goalline situations. He helped Florida State win a national championship in 1993 and finished his career with 640 rushing yards, 293 receiving yards and 20 total touchdowns in just three years before he left for the NFL.

He was taken 28th overall by the San Francisco 49ers and remains the last fullback to be taken in the first round of the NFL draft. His rookie season he helped the 49ers win a Super Bowl. Floyd had a major knee injury in 1995, but played until the 2000 season. He finished his career with 1141 rushing yards, 1427 receiving yards and 25 total touchdowns.

He currently works broadcasting Florida State games with another Seminole legend Gene Deckerhoff.
