Robinson enters NFL Draft

Florida State senior defensive end Janarius Robinson has opted to enter the 2021 NFL Draft, he posted on Twitter on Monday.

Robinson had 26 tackles and led FSU in sacks (three) and quarterback hurries (five). He was also second on the team with seven tackles for loss (linebacker Emmett Rice had 7.5 TFLs).

“During my journey at Florida State, I have grown on and off the field as a man,” Robinson posted on Twitter. “The relationships, opportunities, and memories I’ve experienced at this prestigious university will be cherished forever. It was an honor to attend and play football at my dream school. It was FSU that I was able to become the first in my family to receive a college degree. I would like to especially thank the great academic staff here at Florida State University for their support.”

He joins Marvin Wilson and Hamsah Nasirildeen among the seniors who have opted to enter the draft. Junior cornerback Asante Samuel Jr. has also declared for the NFL Draft.

Robinson and his mother, Cherine Duncan, lost their home in Hurricane Michael in 2018. They just recently moved back in to a new home, built on the same property in Panama City.

“To the Seminole family: Thank you all for the constant support throughout my time at FSU,” Robinson said. “When I lost my house back in 2018 to Hurricane Michael, you all really pulled together and showed me what it means to be a part of the Seminole family. My family and I will be forever grateful for the love and support you all showed us during our time of need.”
