NFL Combine: FSU Safety Lamarcus Brutus Analysis

Florida State is sending six players to the NFL Combine. Here is the Analysis of Lamarcus Brutus by Lance Zierlein.

Lance Zierlein of has broken down what makes Lamarcus Brutus one of the most under the radar players at the combine this year.


Plays with above average instincts allowing him to react quickly to play progression. Anticipates route development and flows with it. Able to turn and peddle without issues. Balanced, open-­field tackler who finishes with consistency. Always reading quarterback. Disguises pre-­snap coverage plans.


Struggled to log playing time amongst talented Seminoles roster. Slightly below average size for the position. Man coverage limitations due to lack of speed. Slow twitch, average athlete.

Bottom Line

Head coach Jimbo Fisher has praised Brutus for his attitude and work­ ethic in working his way up the food chain with Florida State. Brutus? plays an intelligent, instinct­-based game that puts him in good position most of time, but his lack of speed tends to limit him into deep safety responsibilities much of the time. Might lack the size and speed to make it in the league.
