Florida State's defense has look of nation's best in last five years

Florida State has played two games in 2014, and so far we haven’t seen the best version of the Seminoles’ defense, which was a primary reason why many picked them in the preseason to repeat as national champions. Having lost key starters to the NFL like second-round draft picks Lamarcus Joyner and Timmy Jernigan, third-rounder Terrence Brooks and fifth-rounder Telvin Smith, it’s...

Ravens draft for Defense in Rounds 2 and 3…

…And just for fun they picked a tight end, too… Baltimore took Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan with their second-round pick Friday night. Jernigan, 6-foot-2 and 300 pounds, could be paired next to Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata to add some major pass rush disruption potential to the defensive tackle rotation. “I was surprised,” Jernigan said. “I didn’t...

Packers: Why Green Bay Should Target Terrence Brooks in 2014 NFL Draft

If there is one thing the Green Bay Packers need to do in the 2014 NFL Draft it's find a long-term solution at safety. The position has been an issue ever since the career-ending injury Nick Collins suffered back in 2011 and after two years of lackluster play, an upgrade is desperately needed and General Manager Ted Thompson needs to deliver. Fortunately for Green Bay, the 2014...

Best “Not First Round” Safety Prospects in this Year’s NFL Draft

OK kids it is that time of year again, draft talk is everywhere. Who will be taken number one and who are the top ten picks gets way more play then it should. In fact, I think it has got to the point of being sickening.  We as Packer fans don’t get included in all that TOP ten blather and that is a good thing.

A Sad Jets Fan’s Realistic Dream 7 Round Mock Draft

Terrence Brooks out to prove doubters wrong about his NFL prospects

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Terrence Brooks has been nitpicked as a football player. What he could do, and often did very well, was often overlooked by perceived shortcomings. In high school, he was fast and was able to use that speed to cover receivers and close in on running backs. After landing at Florida State, Brooks mostly played special teams and was a reserve cornerback his first...
