FSU's Brandon Jenkins to enter NFL draft

Florida State defensive end Brandon Jenkins told coach Jimbo Fisher he will enter the NFL draft, according to NoleNation's David Hale.

Jenkins is eligible for a medical redshirt because of a Lisfranc injury he suffered in the first quarter of FSU's season opener. Instead of accepting the redshirt and returning in 2013, he decided to enter the draft.

"I think it's time," Jenkins said. "It's been great, and I love FSU. I bleed garnet and gold. It was a tough decision, but I feel like my time has been good but I will enter the draft."

How good Florida State will be next year depends heavily upon who else on the roster might follow Jenkins' lead.
