Strengths: Starting center for the national champion Seminoles, and the trigger man for the nation’s No. 2 scoring offense . . . Won the Rimington Trophy as the nation’s top center and was a first-team All-American.

James White

Position: Running back

Height: 5-9; Weight: 204


Selection: Fourth round, 130th overall

College: Wisconsin

Weaknesses: Not considered a plowhorse or three-down back; more of a change-of-pace type . . . Saw his kick-return role decrease to the point he had just one runback last season.

Position: Offensive tackle


Height: 6-5; Weight: 323

Selection: Fourth round, 140th overall

Weaknesses: Size can work against him against faster edge rushers . . . Effectiveness decreases on the second level . . . Attractive pedigree, but is he too nice?

Selection: Sixth round, 179th overall

Weaknesses: Will have to prove himself as a Division 2 product, from a sub-.500 team no less . . . Still a raw talent despite his 33 career sacks.

Jemea Thomas

Position: Safety

Height: 5-9; Weight: 192

Selection: Sixth round, 206th overall

College: Georgia Tech

Strengths: Hard-hitting safety who also has starting experience at cornerback . . . Well-rounded defender who led the Yellow Jackets in INTs in 2012 and then in tackles in 2013 . . . Could be an immediate help on special teams.
