Indianapolis, IN -- Former Florida State and Plant High star James Wilder, is at the NFL Combine this week, so teams can get to know him before the Draft in May.

Some were surprised that Wilder decided to leave Florida State, after 3 years.  After all, he never established himself as the number-1 running back in Tallahassee.  But after conversations with his coaches, and his family, he was convinced it was time.

"It's just something where you have to figure out yourself if you're ready... Both mentally and physically," Wilder told reporters.   "If you're ready with both aspects, then you have to take that next step... I felt like I was ready... We ended on a great note... I just felt like there was nothing more I could have possibly done."

The Sports Exchange projects Wilder as a 4th to 5th round draft choice.
