Florida State cornerback Xavier Rhodes said he will enter the NFL draft, shortly after the Seminoles' 31-10 victory over Northern Illinois in the Discover Orange Bowl.

A redshirt junior, Rhodes said he has been projected as a late first- or early second-round pick in April's draft.

"I'm gone," Rhodes told ESPN on Tuesday. "I did all I could in college. If I was to come back, I don't think my status would be getting any better."

The 6-foot-2, 217-pound Rhodes recently was rated as the fourth-best junior cornerback by ESPN NFL draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. The Miami native had three interceptions this season.


Very high on this kid. Great size for a CB. He'll probably jump to a 1st round pick, but if he's there in rd 2 I think he should receive strong consideration.

Definitely worth a 2nd round look.

Best CB available in the second round should be our pick.

Xavier Rhodes, if available in the second, would be fapalicious. Definite first round value, which appears like he could fall to the second due to a deep draft.

I don't know if he's going to be able to play CB at the next level.

I think you've got to look at him as a free safety.

Almost. Both of them are from the ACC whereas DaKCMan AP is All-SEC.
