Werner was one of the most disruptive defensive players in the nation in 2012, finishing with 42 tackles, 18 tackles for loss and 13 sacks. The 6-foot-4, 255-pounder was a unanimous All-American selection.
He is currently projected as a top-five pick in most mock drafts.
"I'm grateful to Coach Fisher and Florida State for giving me the opportunity to be a Seminole and play for one of the top college football programs in the country," Werner said. "I've learned so much from the coaches especially Coach [D.J.] Eliot and have been able to play with some of the best players in the country. After sitting down with my wife Denise and gathering as much information, I've decided to move on and enter the NFL Draft. I've enjoyed my time at FSU and will cherish the time I spent as a Seminole."
Don't cry for FSU that much. The Seminoles defensive line is fully stocked and will benefit from the return of all-star end Brandon Jenkins, who missed the almost the entire season with a foot injury.
