Edwards had 23 tackles, three sacks and one forced fumble this season for the Seminoles. A two-year starter, Edwards played in 41 games at FSU, recording 68 tackles, eight sacks and an interception in his career.
Florida State lost to Oregon in the Rose Bowl last week, ending its bid to repeat as national champions.
Earlier Tuesday, Seminoles cornerback P.J. Williams announced he will forgo his senior season and enter the draft. Quarterback Jameis Winston will not announce his decision until next week, and is reportedly "seriously considering" staying in school for another year.
FSU cornerback Ronald Darby, kicker Roberto Aguayo and defensive tackle Eddie Goldman are all also considering entering the draft.
