North Carolina State cornerback David Amerson will forgo his senior season with the Wolfpack and enter the 2013 NFL draft, a source told ESPN.

The 6-foot-2, 193-pound Amerson recently was rated as the fifth-best cornerback and the No. 48 overall draft prospect by ESPN's Scouts, Inc. He also was listed as the No. 4 junior cornerback by ESPN NFL draft Insider Mel Kiper Jr.

Amerson recorded 52 tackles and five interceptions this past season at NC State. He set the ACC's single-season record with 13 interceptions last season as a sophomore.
