Antonor Winston told ESPN.com's David Hale that the plan for now was for his son not to attend the draft, but the decision "was not set in stone." The draft will be held in Chicago from April 30 to May 2.
Ohio State defensive tackle Dan Wilkinson, who was selected by the Cincinnati Bengals in 1994, was the last No. 1 overall pick to not attend the draft.
Winston, the Florida State quarterback who won the 2013 Heisman Trophy, recently flew to New York to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and other league officials.
Several draft experts, including ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay, have Winston being selected No. 1 overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The story was first reported by TheMMQB.com.
ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan and ESPN.com's David Hale contributed to this report.
