Bjoern Werner to enter NFL Draft

USA TODAY Sports

Florida State defensive end Bjoern Werner will forego his senior year and enter the 2013 NFL Draft.

Florida State defensive end Bjoern Werner will forego his final year of eligibility and will enter the 2013 NFL Draft, according to a report from Joe Schad of ESPN.

The German-born Werner played only two years of organized football in high school before he was discovered by Florida State at a Connecticut prep school. After playing a part-time role as a freshman, Werner busted out on the national scene his sophomore year, starting all 13 games for the Seminoles. Werner recorded 37 tackles, 11 TFL, seven sacks, two fumble recoveries and an interception.

Werner had just as good a year this past season for FSU, leading a front four that was among the best in the country. Werner had 42 tackles, 18 TFL and 11 sacks this year. Werner was named as a first team All-ACC and consensus All-American.

His decision to go pro seemed like a foregone conclusion to many as he is projected as a possible top five pick in some mock drafts. In their latest mock drafts for CBSSports.com, Rob Rang had Werner going fifth overall to the Detroit Lions while Dane Brugler had Werner even higher, going third overall to the Oakland Raiders.
