Roberto Aguayo put his best foot forward and will stay in the state of Florida.

Aguayo, from Florida State, was selected by the Buccaneers in the second round of the draft and was the 59th overall pick.

The previous kicker to go in the second round was Mike Nugent, who was the 47th overall pick by the New York Jets in 2005.

Aguayo also became the first kicker since Sebastian Janikowski to forgo his senior year in college.

As a freshman in 2013, he won the Lou Groza Award as the nation's top kicker, setting an FBS record with 157 points as the Seminoles won the national championship.

As a sophomore he was a first-team selection to The Associated Press All-America team for the second straight season. Had he stayed for his senior season, Aguayo would have likely set NCAA records for scoring.
