Florida State K Roberto Aguayo is forgoing his final season to enter the NFL draft.

He leaves the Seminoles as one of the best kickers in NCAA history.

The 2013 Lou Groza Award winner hit all 198 extra points in his career, becoming only the 12th kicker to finish without a missed PAT. He made 267 of his 276 kicks overall (96.73 percent), finishing slightly ahead of Nebraska's Alex Henery for the most accurate mark in NCAA history.

Aguayo's 405 points are second most in FSU history, behind Dustin Hopkins (466). This fall, he joined Deion Sanders as the only two Seminoles to ever become three-time All-Americans.

"After giving this decision careful thought and meeting with my family and Coach Fisher, I have decided to enter the NFL Draft," Aguayo said in a statement. "These last four years have been nothing short of incredible on and off the field. I have made memories that I will always treasure. One goal when I got here was to graduate, and I'm thankful I was able to earn my degree in Criminology this fall."

FSU teammate and star DB Jalen Ramsey announced Tuesday that he will also skip his senior season to enter the draft. DL DeMarcus Walker has not yet announced his decision.

Aguayo could be replaced by his younger brother, Ricky, one of the country's top kicking prospects and a part of FSU's 2016 recruiting class.
