2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Terrence Brooks, DB , Florida State

After a great combine performance, Brooks is moving up draft rankings. While he still has room to improve in areas such as tackling and play discipline, the former FSU defensive back is a "fourth linebacker" type who can bring physicality to a defense.

Brooks is a touch undersized at 5-foot-11. There are some durability concerns about that considering his aggressive style of play. Played a leadership role with the Seminoles and made a lot of play calls pre-snap as a senior. At his best against the run when he can play downhill and aggressive. Too often goes for highlight big tackle and needs to play more disciplined across the board. Leaves his feet when tackling. Excellent 40-yard dash time and elite straight line speed for the position. Short arms and a bit lean through his hips.

Average ball skills and body control when in the air. Decent ability to undercut and knock the pass away. Strong pursuit angles and can mix it up with lead blockers. Showed a lot of improvement in his ability to read-and-react to routes. Good anticipation and instincts. Gets a good break on run plays. Still a bit tight in his lower half in coverage. May be a liability in slow-man coverage.

Brooks projects as an early third round option in the 2014 NFL Draft.
