FSU WR Kelvin Benjamin turning pro
By Andrea Adelson
Florida State receiver Kelvin Benjamin has decided to enter the NFL draft, he told ESPN's Joe Schad on Friday.
Benjamin, who caught the game-winning touchdown pass to beat Auburn in the BCS national championship game, finished the season with 54 receptions for 1,011 yards and 15 touchdowns. Todd McShay lists Benjamin as one of the Top 32 prospects for the draft.
The Seminoles also are losing defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan and running back James Wilder Jr., leaving running back Devonta Freeman as the lone Florida State player who has yet to announce his intentions. Guard Josue Matias, tight end Nick O'Leary, running back Karlos Williams, tackle Cameron Erving, receiver Rashad Greene and guard Tre' Jackson are all returning to school.
