The place to talk about the Florida State Seminoles
The place to discuss general topics outside of Florida State
You have no favorite boards.
The name that immediately jumps into my head is Christian Jones. The guy is a freak and I think he's going to get more opportunities to blitz and get sacks. I could see Karlos doing the same thing if he makes the personal decision to play LB. He's a wild man out there and I think when he is let loose, bad things will happen to the other team.
Scalp 'Em Seminoles!!!
Los fits the mold of Safeties that Pruitt likes... even if Los wanted to move Pruitt would probably be against it.
Darby for 2 reasons - pattern matching is a great fit for a quick twitch guy like him, and he was in position for a lot of picks/PBUs anyway.
Karlos. Not only will he benefit from the style of defense that Pruitts going to bring but he's also going to benefit from the fact that everyone's now on a level playing field as far as the playbook is concerned
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or it may last a year. But eventually, it will subside. If i quit, however it will last forever.
Joyner. Assuming that pruitt brings a saban style d and it is implemented right away. A safety with wheels and hits like a hammer is huge in that system. He will be asked to do a lot more which should boost his range and draft stock.
Jones will be called upon on more blitzes one can assume which would lead to more tfl and maybe a handful of sacks. People already know hes good in space and a wrap up tackler, but again showing more versatility will earn him money on draft day.
I dont know if the more aggressive play style will benefit our dts or hurt their stats. If zone blitzes are called pulling one away from the line it could lead to more pbus but it also could take away tackles.
Coming from a dline "try and stop us" centered mentality to what we can assume will be more movement and aggressive in the back 7 could hurt.
I've been waiting for a Segio Kindel type of year from Jones since he arrived. I am hoping he is allowed to use his length to rush the passer.
I'd say Chris Casher. Gonna be lots of one on ones and opportunities to stand up some and blitz.
Plus he'll be going from zero stats. most room for improvement stat-wise.
I could see him with 6-8 sacks this year if he beats out Newberry or at least gets half the snaps.

The entire offense. We will have the most three and outs ever in a season. Thus more opportunities to score on offense!
Three W's In My Life: Ward, Weinke, and Winston
I think guys like Hunter and Brooks will get a chance for a lot more ints. Los obviously as already mentioned. Hopefully we start turning the DTs loose. I see big things from McAlister and Jernigan
