An immediate starter as a rookie in 2015, Darby tallied 2 picks and 21 passes defensed en route to earning a spot on the Pro Football Writers Association All-Rookie Team and being named the Pro Football Focus defensive rookie of the year.

 

Darby, a native of Oxon Hill, MD, played three seasons for the Seminoles, appearing in 42 career games and totaling 79 tackles (57 solo), 16 pass breakups, 2 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles and 1 fumble recovery. A three-time Atlantic Coast Conference champion, Darby was named the ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year as a freshman in 2012 and helped the Seminoles win the BCS National Championship in 2013.
