(TALLAHASSEE, Fla.) — NFL teams eying Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston for the 2015 draft may have to wait another year.
Head coach Jimbo Fisher claimed earlier this year that the Heisman Trophy winner might play two more years of college football before going pro. Winston echoed those statements on Thursday.
“Obviously, I’m not even worried about the draft and stuff like that,” Winston said. “I’m worried about winning championships here at Florida State.”
Winston would be eligible for the 2015 NFL draft if he chooses to leave school after next season. He will be a redshirt sophomore in 2014. Many draft experts believe he would have been a high first-round pick, possibly No. 1 overall if he were eligible for this year’s draft in May.
The 20-year-old Winston is also a baseball player for Florida State. He is expected to be the team’s closer this season.
