2013 NFL Draft: State of Florida prospects appear high in mock draft

USA TODAY Sports

FSU's Werner and Rhodes, and Florida's Floyd, could appear in the draft's first round.

Three prospects from colleges in the state of Florida appeared in the first round of a recent Fox Sports mock draft. According to Fox Sports's Peter Schrager, Florida State's Bjoern Werner and Xavier Rhodes, and Florida's Sharrif Floyd could all go in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft. In Schrager's mock draft, Werner went with the second pick to Jacksonville, Rhodes with the 18th pick to the Giants, and Floyd with the 30th pick to the Broncos.

Werner finished the 2012 season with 39 tackles and 13 sacks for the Seminoles. He was a unanimous All-American as a junior. A former German exchange student, Werner only played two years of high school football in the United States before going to FSU. Rhodes finished the 2012 season with 35 tackles and 3 interceptions for the 'Noles. He was named first-team All-ACC and was named to Phil Steele's All-American third team.

Floyd was subject of scrutiny this fall after serving a two-game suspension for receiving improper benefits. He was eventually adopted by the person who provided him those benefits.
