Quote from Antonio Cromartie
"I have decided to enter the NFL draft. This is based on several reasons, but mainly I want to be able to help my family out. I've talked to my family and the coaches and I feel like this is the best decision. I have learned a lot from Coach Bowden and Coach Andrews, and I am thankful that I have had the chance to play at Florida State. I would like to thank everyone at Florida State for all they have done for me, especially my teammates, the coaches and the staff. My knee feels great and I have been working extremely hard to get myself ready to play again. My plan now is to continue to work hard and get ready for the combine and other workouts. I feel like I am ready to play at the next level and that's what I'll have to be able to show the scouts and coaches in the next couple months."

"Like I've always said, I think you can make more money if you stay another year in school and work towards getting your diploma. But, if there are extenuating circumstances, then I will support the decision to enter the draft. Antonio is an outstanding athlete and there is no doubt that he has the ability to play in the NFL."
