Two of Florida State’s four first-team All-ACC selections will forgo their remaining eligibility and declare for the 2016 NFL Draft.
Cornerback Jalen Ramsey and kicker Roberto Aguayo each had one year left to play at the college level, but both will leave school early for the next level.
“Today, after having in depth discussions with my parents, my coaches and others whom I hold dear to my heart, I am announcing my decision to pursue my dream, forgo my senior year of football at Florida State and declare for the 2016 NFL Draft,” Ramsey said in a school release on Tuesday.
Ramsey started all 41 games of his career as a Seminole. This fall, he finished with 52 tackles, broke up 10 passes and returned a fumble for a touchdown.
Aguayo, who converted on 69 of his 78 career field-goal attempts as well as all 198 of his extra points, announced his future plans via social media on Wednesday.
“After giving this decision careful thought and meeting with my family and Coach Fisher, I have decided to enter the NFL Draft,” Aguayo wrote on Twitter.
CBS Sports lists Ramsey as the third-best NFL prospect in this year’s draft. Aguayo is considered the top overall kicker and projects as a second- or third-rounder.
