FSU's Geno Hayes to the Bucs



Hayes_2 Florida State's Geno Hayes just went to the Bucs with the 175th pick, and we suddenly had flashbacks to another FSU outside linebacker once drafted by the Bucs: Derrick Brooks.

Okay, maybe that's a little premature. But the 6-1, 226-pound Hayes did play weak-side linebacker for the Seminoles and was an All-ACC selection after ranking second on the team in tackles with 80.

His final season was somewhat overshadowed by off-the-field character issues stemming from an arrest from a nightclub altercation with police that resulted in three misdemeanor charges. Hayes completed a pre-trial diversion program earlier this year.
