Scouting Report
After capping his four-year career at Florida State with a national championship, Joyner is looking forward to showcasing his talents at the next level. The two-time first-team All-ACC selection and first-team All-American had two interceptions and 5 1/2 sacks during his 2013 senior season as the Seminoles led the country in both scoring defense (12.1 ppg) and passing defense (156.6 ypg). While Joyner is a bit undersized, he's an extremely hard hitter and plays much bigger than his frame. Joyner moved from cornerback to safety in college, and he likely projects as a slot corner in the NFL. Joyner is an extremely hard worker, and his leadership traits should make him a valuable asset in the locker room. He certainly has the tools to succeed in the pros, though his lack of pure athleticism is a concern. While Joyner played in all 55 games with the Seminoles, some are worried about his ability to withstand a grueling 16-game season. Joyner failed to impress at the NFL combine, where he ran a 4.55 40-yard dash and recorded just 14 bench press reps. He also posted lackluster times of 4.40 seconds in the 20-yard shuttle and 7.26 seconds in the three-cone drill. Despite his poor showing, Joyner has a very bright future ahead of him, and he should be a late first- or second-round pick.
