Florida State Lamarcus Brutus is just one of the many Florida State hopefuls that may be drafted in the later rounds of the 2016 NFL draft. The five year member of the FSU football team started all 13 games in his senior season while recording a team leading three interceptions to go along with 68 tackles, which ranked third on the team. For his performance, he was an All-ACC honorable mention from the media.

In 2014, his first time playing in every game of the season, the defensive back had two interceptions in key games, as he picked off Treon Harris against Florida and Justin Thomas in the ACC Championship Game. The year prior, Brutus played in 11 games during the National Championship winning season.

Behind Jalen Ramsey, Brutus would most likely be the second highest drafted defensive back out of Florida State this year. Many major outlets are projecting the Port St. Lucie native to go undrafted, however his performances at the NFL's scouting combine and Florida State's Pro Day may have bumped him up onto some draft boards of NFL teams.
