Enjoyed a terrific first year of playing collegiate football by starting all 12 games at middle linebacker ... was the second-leading tackler on the team with 94 stops, just three off the team lead...also had 2.5 tackles for a loss and 1.5 sacks ... had double-figure tackles in two games with a career-high 12 in win vs. Syracuse (Nov. 5) and also had ten vs. Western Michigan (Oct. 1) ...

Showed his versatility coming in in FSU's "6-pack" package late in the season as well starting at linebacker in the ACC Championship Game.
Everett stands in the 5-foot-10, 175-pound range and plays more of a safety role but he has the hips to be able to play corner. He breaks on the ball well and is able to turn and run and make up ground quickly when helping his teammates.
