TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State defensive tackle Eddie Goldman will forgo his senior season and enter the 2015 NFL Draft.

The school made the announcement on Wednesday. The 6-foot-4, 320-pound Goldman from Washington, D.C., was a full-time starter the past two years and named Associated Press third-team All American in 2014.

He finished the season with 35 tackles, eight tackles for loss and a team-high four sacks.

Coach Jimbo Fisher said a statement that “Eddie was a tremendous leader, student-athlete and, most importantly, a tremendous person for FSU.”

Goldman is expected to be an early draft pick because of his athleticism at the position. The Seminoles went 39-3, won the 2013 national championship and three ACC titles during his career.

They advanced to the inaugural College Football Playoff semifinal this season, losing to Oregon.
