Most people were complimentary of Michigan and its success in having 11 players taken in the 2017 NFL Draft. That’s a program record and the most of any school in this year’s draft.
One person who wasn’t impressed was Florida State assistant coach Tim Brewster, who tweeted the following Saturday night:
Most draft picks doesn't correlate to winning….Just ask Michigan! #OrangeBowlChampions!

Brewster is referencing the Seminoles’ 33-32 win over the Wolverines in the Orange Bowl on Dec. 31, 2016. While Florida State did top Michigan in that game, both teams finished with 10-3 records.
Before taking a job as a Florida State assistant, Brewster was the head coach at Minnesota, leading the Golden Gophers to a 15-30 record from 2007-2010. While his tenure there did not correlate to winning, Brewster is still recognized as one of the top recruiters in the country, helping the Seminoles land a top class in 2016 and the No. 6 2017 class, according to 247Sports.
