Seminoles Football News: Jimbo Fisher addresses Jameis Winston's NFL Draft decision

Florida State Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher wouldn't be surprised either way when it comes to starting quarterback Jameis Winston's decision to stay or return for his junior year.

“I understand if he wants to go, when a guy’s that high and you’re doing what you do,” Fisher said, via John Taylor of NBC's College Football Talk. “But remember, he’s a very, very good student. He’s very smart. He loves baseball. He loves his time in college. He loves all the interaction of this, believe it or not. So it would not shock me either way.”

Back in September, Pro Football Talk‘s Mike Florio indicated that Winston is “running out of chances to convince the NFL he can come in and be that player who is the leader of your team both in the locker room and in the public eye.”

Just a month after that, FOX Sports' Jay Glazer added that “general managers are moving Winston down their potential draft boards — or off them completely.”

Whether or not those reports ring true or not, Winston will still have quite the decision on his hands once the Seminoles' season comes to a close.
