Tamorrion Terry addresses 2020 NFL Draft status

Florida State’s season didn’t go the way anyone involved with the program wanted it to in 2019. The Seminoles are 6-6 and will likely finish with a lowly bowl placing to finish their season. With that being said, there are some players who are beginning to think about their NFL futures.

Marvin Wilson will be out of the bowl game, which will be announced next week, due to injury but it wouldn’t surprise me if a guy like Cam Akers joined him on the sidelines. Akers has nothing left to prove and will finish his time at FSU as one of the best running backs in school history. It would be smarter for him to save himself from a potential injury in a meaningless bowl game, though it really wouldn’t surprise me if he did suit up, he has that type of character.

Another player whose status is in flux is redshirt sophomore wide receiver Tamorrion Terry. He caught 7 passes for 131 yards to end the regular season, amassing a total of 51 catches for 1,023 yards and 8 touchdowns. Terry is an athletic freak with a knack to make big catches, the type of player who could be molded into a superstar at the next level. He’s eligible to declare for the 2020 NFL Draft and the Georgia native addressed his status after FSU’s loss to Florida.

This is the full quote from Terry, “They gave me some feedback but right now I’m just focused on this bowl game,” Terry said according to Bob Ferrante of the Osceola. “Once that comes around, I’ll make my decision.”

It does sound like he’s planning to play in the Seminoles’ bowl game. SportsTalkOnline currently has the 6-foot-4 wide receiver slotted in as a fifth-round selection but that could quickly improve. Terry became 13th receiver in school history to hit the 1K mark after his performance in Gainesville.

One thing that could hedge Terry’s decision in one way or the other is the hiring of Florida State’s next head coach, which could come at any time now that the regular season is over.
