Florida State defensive tackle Eddie Goldman is "leaning heavily" toward declaring for the 2015 NFL draft, according to a report from Rand Getlin of Yahoo Sports.

Over 13 games this season, Goldman, a 6-foot-4, 320-pound junior, has recorded 35 tackles, eight tackles for loss and a team-high four sacks while earning All-ACC first-team honors.

Getlin reports that Goldman's parents have begun meeting with agents.

Goldman suffered an ankle injury during No. 2 Florida State's win over Georgia Tech in the ACC championship game but is expected to play in the Seminoles' game against No. 3 Oregon in the Rose Bowl, one of two semifinals in the College Football Playoff.

In his latest mock draft, SI.com's Chris Burke projects Goldman to be selected with the No. 30 overall pick.
