09:20 PM ET 11.19 | With the college football season winding down, draft-eligible players will be forced to make a tough decision -- should we stay or should we go? One of those players, Florida State Seminoles defensive end Brandon Jenkins, could have entered this year's NFL Draft or taken a medical redshirt and returned to school for a final season. He made his decision on Monday and will be taking his talents to the NFL. "I had a lot of time to think about things, and gain information about how this injury affected everything, so I think I came to a conclusion," said Jenkins. "I think it's time. It's been great, I love FSU, I bleed garnet and gold, it was a tough decision. I feel like my time's been good, I will enter the draft." Jenkins had already made his decision to go pro and informed Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher of his decision earlier to today.

Good luck Mr. Jenkins. The 'Noles faithful will miss you.

In any event, GO IRISH!

Definitely.

And any NFL team who drafts Jenkins is gonna get a stud. This kid is the real deal and will be pressuring NFL QB's for many years to come.

Sucks he's leaving FSU but he's definitely NFL-ready. Matter of fact he was NFL-ready last year, too.

Dude... Jenkins is a definite first round pick and a likely top-ten selection.

Dwight Freeney 2.0

Best of luck, Brandon! Wish you hadn't been injured at the start of the season. It would have been a monster year for you.

EWO, isn't Werner and Carradine rated higher than Jenkins by the NFL scouts??

Maybe now, but Jenkins was considered our best defensive player coming into the year.

Yeah, it's nice to have three good DE's

The sad thing for us is it looks like we're losing all three for next year. Yikes. We have those studs signed last year, but they're really young.

Yeah according to Walterfootball.com NFL mock draft, they have all three going high in the draft.
