05:01 PM ET 01.02 | The Florida State Seminoles put together an impressive season that ended on Tuesday night after a matchup in the 2013 Orange Bowl against the Northern Illinois Huskies. Florida State ended the season with a dominating win in the game. Following the final whistle, yet another Seminoles defensive star announced his plans to forgo his final year of eligibility and to head to the NFL. Defensive back Xavier Rhodes announced his plans to enter the 2013 NFL Draft. "I'm excited," Rhodes said following the Orange Bowl. "After last year I was thinking about it. And then I stayed healthy this season. I wanted to basically focus on this season and not really worry about it (the NFL). I wanted to get my team here. That's what I did." Rhodes is a fringe first-round prospect and has a real chance to hear his name called in the first 32 picks. This season, Rhodes was named a first-team All-ACC defensive back after leading Florida State in interceptions and passes defensed.
