Only 12 days left to kickoff and we continue our countdown of the Top-75 players in Florida State history with No. 12 Ron Sellers.

Wide receiver Ron Sellers comes in at No. 12 as we continue our countdown of the Top-75 players in Florida State history. Sellers played three years for the Seminoles and was named a consensus All-American his sophomore year in 1967. He returned and had an even better year in 1968, and was named to multiple All-American teams. He still holds the Florida State record for yards in a season (1,496), and is second in career receptions (211) and yards (3,598). He finished his career with 23 touchdowns as well. 

He was inducted into the Florida State Hall of Fame in 1977 and the College Football Hall of Fame in 1988. His No. 34 was retired for more than 30 years before he gave Ernie Sims permission to wear it.

He was drafted with the sixth overall pick in the 1969 NFL draft by the Boston Patriots. He played 5 years in the NFL.
