Florida State football defensive tackle Marvin Wilson declared for the 2021 NFL draft today, with the likely end of FSU’s season after another cancellation.

Wilson started the first six games of Florida State’s season this year, but a knee injury ended his season after the Louisville game on October 24th. Despite the season-ending surgery, Wilson stuck around the program and was seen leading his teammates at every game the rest of the year.

The former five-star was expected to enter the NFL draft last season, but choose to come back for his senior season after Mike Norvell was hired. Wilson posted 17 tackles and two tackles for loss during the season. He also had a big role on special teams, blocking three kicks. Wilson finished his four-year career with 109 tackle, 15 TFL, and 9.5 sacks. He played in 34 career games.

In his statement released today, Wilson wrote, My time here in Tallahassee has come to an end, and all I can say is I’m more than thankful for the opportunity to represent this logo. I’ve been faced with many challenges that has helped mold me into a better person. More challenges than I could ever imagine, but my time here has taught me how to be resilient and how to respond to adversity. I came in as a boy and leave as a man. Tallahassee, Florida will always have a special place in my heart.”
