As a longtime FSU fan, I think anyone who takes Booker on day 1 will be disappointed.  He has serious speed and lightning quickness but can't seem to put his tools together to form a total package.  He often outruns his blocks due to lack of patience.  When you have the cutback ability this guy has, you can afford to slow down a little.  His balance also is a bit strange.  He clearly has superior balance as some of his cuts require severe body lean, however, he loses balance on cantact from anyone.  He goes down when the contact doesn't seem to warrant it, a lot like Michael Pittman used to.

The way to use Booker in the NFL is to do what the Jets did with his former teamate Leon Washington on Monday Night Football.  Get him past the line of scrimage before you give him the ball.  Middle screens to get him in space with linebackers would be very effective.  Leon Washington ate the Dolphins up with that, and Booker would do the same.
