We're in for one hell of a show on defense in 2017. FSU QB and all other QBs will be running for their lives, and when they heave the ball in desperation to avoid a bone crushing sack, Delaney will be ready for the pick 6.

This one addition changes the dynamic of the entire defensive backfield. We're in serious business now if we can find a reliable second Safety. This move gives us more options to throw at that vulnerability.

Early projection:

CB Young/Dean
FS Jaquan/Michael Jackson/Jeff James
SS Finley/Carter
CB Delaney/Redwine/Mayes
Nickel Jaquan/Bandy

Things to consider:

- I think these top 4 of 5 in the Nickel package are highly likely for the early part of the season: Young, Delaney, Dean, Jaquan.
- How Michael Jackson transitions to Safety is an enormous variable in our DB equation. If he can show out, it makes us more flexible to allow Jaquan to play a utility role.
- If someone can step into the Safety role and provide some of what Jamal Carter served last year, Jaquan can play Nickel and Bandy won't have to be rushed.
- Jackson, Finley and Carter will now be in a death battle for PT. We will see the benefits of intense competition.
- I'd still see where Deejay Dallas fits as a DB after his look at WR this spring. Not saying he can't contribute at WR - the opposite really. Just really intrigued how his skill set transfers over to DB. We'll see if he gets a look. It's now more of a luxury.

I'm freakin' pumped.

Close-bert is going to be very busy with his NFL career, but when he's done, I hope we find a place for him in this program. He's locking down recruits as a freaking grad student. He will be a special coach/recruiter if he decides to pursue a career in coaching.

Is there anyone in recent memory who has both bought-in and paid it forward faster than he?

Our defense is going to be nasty this year.

its refreshing to see the momentum. we aren't losing all of the head to head battles and we are winning a lot of the important ones (ammon richards, lingard).

i dont know if richt will lead us to victory in the promise land, but i do know that he's is going to get us closer than anyone has since the last time we were there and that he'll at least get us real real close if not all of the way.

this is truly exciting.
