Rick Stroud, Greg Auman and Matt Baker

Meet Geno Hayes



Hayesbio Linebacker FSU, 6-1, 226 Round 6, 175th pick

Finished 2007 with 80 tackles, second-most for FSU, and his career with 156 in 35 games (21 starts). … Scored two touchdowns, on a punt block and 38-yard interception return. … Played same position and wore same number as former Seminole Derrick Brooks.
His stock was hurt dramatically by character concerns stemming from a nightclub altercation with police that resulted in three charges. Hayes met the terms of a pretrial diversion program this year to resolve the matter. Linebacker is, arguably, the Bucs’ deepest unit. But Hayes could make the team through special teams.
