Round Pick 24: FS Terrence Brooks
Like Joyner Brooks can play the slot as well, but he is an excellent safety and could actually go higher then Joyner. Brooks plays the safety position like a corner but also does well when supporting the run. He often puts himself into position to make a play on the ball but let several interceptions slip through or bounce off his hands. A safety like Brooks would make a great eventual replacement for Reggie Nelson at free safety but could also start games early on if needed.

4th Round Pick 23: OLB Telvin Smith
When you watch tape of the FSU defense you can’t help but notice Telvin Smith, he’s the one flying all over the place. Smith’s knock is he is built like a safety at 6’3 218lbs and his frame looks almost maxed out. However I want him on my team in a nickel linebacker role locking down tight ends and blitzing around the edge or up the middle. He would be an instant stud on special teams.
