Florida State star defensive end Brian Burns is skipping his senior year to enter the NFL draft. Yahoo! Sports first reported the news.

The move is not a surprise. Burns had a strong junior season to cement himself as a likely first-round pick. The 6-foot-5, 231-pound Fort Lauderdale native finished tied for ninth nationally with 10 sacks. His 24 career sacks are the fifth most in program history.

Burns also amassed 15 ½ tackles for a loss this season and forced three fumbles.
