2014 Colts Mock Draft Scouting Report- FS Terrence Brooks

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Stampede Blue scouts the players who make the most sense for the Indianapolis Colts in the 2014 NFL Draft. We call this series 'Who the hell will they draft?'

Terrence Brooks - FS - Florida State

Height: 5' 10 7/8"
Weight: 198
Arm: 31"
Hand: 9"

Strengths:
Brooks is a former corner who was only recently moved to safety. That being said, he has shown great understanding of the position and reads the quarterbacks eyes efficiently with great overall instincts. He has the range to cover "center field" in the defense and would allow current Colts safety LaRon Landry to come down into the box, where he should be more comfortable. He makes plays on the ball while it's in the air and can cover the seam without issue.

Weaknesses:
Brooks, while being quite good at making plays on the balls, is strikingly bad at actually catching it. He's also a bit shorter than the prototypical NFL safety and there are some concerns about his willingness as a tackler. Brooks was not asked to play man coverage much while at safety so it's unclear if he could cover the slot wide receiver, if necessary.

Conclusions:
The Colts desperately need a center field style safety. Is Brooks worth trading a future pick for? Maybe not. But with proper coaching, he could become a huge asset to a problematic secondary.

Mocking the Draft lists Brooks as the 11th best safety in the 2014 NFL Draft. Brooks is also a former teammate of 2013 Colts first round pick Bjoern Werner.
