FSU DB Jalen Ramsey Declares For NFL Draft

Florida State star defensive back Jalen Ramsey will enter the 2016 NFL Draft, according to an FSU release. 

Ramsey started all 41 games of his career, playing both safety and cornerback, and finished with 180 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, 23 pass breakups and three interceptions. Tuesday, he announced his decision to forgo his senior season.

This is obviously a major blow to the Florida State defense, but one that was expected. According to ESPN's Todd McShay, Ramsey is projected as a top-4 pick.
