#5 Who works where in the secondary?
It has been announced that Lamarcus Joyner is moving to cornerback in the spring. Conventional thought is that this is to open the door for Karlos Williams to finally make his mark at safety. This is an interesting move in my mind, though, as cornerback seems to be a more loaded position than safety. Nick Waisome and Ronald Darby saw extensive action at corner last year performing well, while Tyler Hunter also saw a good bit of time at nickel back. Hunter in particular is a guy that got work at safety and cornerback and has the ability to play both positions. In addition to Waisome, Darby, and Hunter, highly recruited corner Colin Blake will be back from an injured freshman year to compete. Blake was a highly rated CB with great size. Keelin Smith had Jimbo Fisher singing his praises last fall before the season started. Throw in Lamarcus Joyner, a fixture in the FSU secondary for several season, and there is an embarrassment of talent at the corner position.
The good news is that for the 4 (or 5 in nickel) positions in the defensive backfield, Florida State returns 6 guys who saw lots of action last season.
