In this Feb. 21, 2015, file photo, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston runs a drill at the NFL football scouting combine in Indianapolis. While 26 draft-eligible players have accepted invitations from the NFL to attend the proceedings later this month, Winston and Marcus Mariota are not among them. The two most recent Heisman Trophy winners and highest-profile players in this year's crop have opted to stay home with their families for the April 30-May 2 draft.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The attorney for NFL prospect Jameis Winston says the lawsuit filed against him by a woman who says he raped her is "false" and a "stunt."

David Cornwell said in a statement Friday the lawsuit by former Florida State student Erica Kinsman was expected. He said her accusations against the former Seminole quarterback have been rejected by police and Florida State.

The lawsuit was filed Thursday, two weeks before the NFL draft where Winston could be the No. 1 pick.

Kinsman says she was intoxicated when Winston and others took her back to Winston's apartment and he sexually assaulted her. Winston says the sex was consensual.

The Associated Press does not routinely identify people who say they are sexual assault victims. However, Kinsman told her story publicly in a documentary.
