Bio: 
Three-year starter who made 45 tackles (1.5 for loss) in 2017. Posted 53 tackles (5.5 for loss) and 2.5 sacks as a junior. Made 52 tackles (6.5 for loss) with two pass breakups in 2015. Tallied nine tackles as a redshirt freshman, mostly on special teams.
Pos: 
Strong, forceful linebacker with an underrated game. Remains disciplined with assignments, correctly reads the action and takes good angles to the play. Strong at the point of attack, breaks down well and fires up the field to defend the run. Physical, uses his hands well and breaks through blocks to get to the ball carrier. Wraps up tackling and brings opponents down on first contact.
Neg: 
Shows stiffness in his game, which hurts his ability to finish blocks. Late to react when the ball is in the air. Lacks long speed.
Analysis: 
Hoskins was a solid linebacker who made a lot of plays in the short and intermediate field for Florida State. He’s a strong run defender with backup possibilities at middle linebacker or on the inside of a 3-4 alignment.
