Washington Redskins Draft Profiles: Terrence Brooks, FS

Hogs Haven takes a look at NFL prospects heading into the 2014 draft

Grant Halverson

Terrence Brooks

Free Safety

Height: 5'11", Weight: 197

Florida State

Strengths: Brooks has good speed, the right build, and a great wingspan. He's a well balanced, physical player who hits hard and has a great vertical leap. In the 2013 season with the Seminoles, Brooks had 56 tackles, two interceptions, and forced two fumbles. He also broke up five passes and plays special teams. Brooks was voted by coaches to the first team All-ACC unit.

Weaknesses: Brooks is shorter than most free safeties in this draft. He also has less experience at the free safety position. He began his career at FSU as a backup cornerback. Brooks has a tendency to lower his shoulders and hit opponents rather than tackle.

Bottom Line: Although shorter than other safeties, his vertical leap is impressive. He has good instincts and could be a solid addition to the secondary.

Projected Round: 3-4

Team He Fits Best On: Brooks could be a good pick for the Redskins as a late draft pick. He could also be a good fit for the Lions, Bears, or Steelers
