Another Florida State player is leaving school early to join the NFL Draft. The latest is running back Devonta Freeman.

According to a report from ESPN, Freeman will make an official announcement on Monday. The report says Freeman received a third-round grade from the draft advisory committee, which matches up with CBSSports.com's projection for him.

Whereever Freeman winds up, he won't be so easily replaced in Tallahassee. Freeman led Florida State in rushing this season with 1,016 yards and 14 rushing touchdowns. He also caught 22 passes for 278 yards and a score.

Freeman becomes the fourth underclassmen to leave Florida State this year, joining fellow running back James Wilder, receiver Kelvin Benjamin and defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan.
