While many players are coming back to Florida State in 2014, one running back will be taking a chance heading in to the NFL. Running back Devonta Freeman has made the decision to leave the Seminoles with a year of eligibility remaining and enter the 2014 NFL Draft.

According to a report by ESPN.com, the official announcement will be made Monday but freeman will hope his 1,000-yard season will be enough to make him an attractive running back option for some team in the NFL. According to the report, Freeman received an NFL Draft evaluation suggesting he is a potential third-round draft pick.

Freeman rushed for 1,016 yards and 14 touchdowns and added 278 receiving yards and a touchdown this season in an offense that split the carries and rushing duties between multiple players and saw a defensive back converted to running back along the way. Freeman averaged 5.6 yards per rushing attempt.

    I will miss watching Freeman in a Florida State uniform next year; however, with the talent FSU has at running back now and coming in this coupled with the Wilder loss may not be major losses to the FSU running game.

    Nole fans have expected him to mov e on as well. This guy improved leaps and bounds in the program. He and Wilder can see the writing on the wall though that Williams will be grabbing the bulk of the carries in the offense a year from now. Best to go as early as you can as an RB to keep as much tread on the tire as you can.

    This was expected.

    Thanks for the memories Devonte!

    This is a great move for Freeman. Hopefully we can pair him with Doug Martin down in Tampa.

    Well I think his stock would have risen of he had played another year…always a hard choice.
