Notes:
2010 WAC Defensive Player of the Year...2010 First Team All-WAC selection...2009 First Team All-WAC pick...2008 Second Team All-WAC honors...Finished career with nearly 200 tackles and 19.5 sacks...Led the WAC in 2010 with 11 sacks and compiled 16.5 TFLs...Sixth in league in sacks in 2009 with four, despite playing entire season with broken hand...Will attempt to make conversion from defensive end to outside linebacker...Has above average length, a muscular frame and good jump off the snap...High football IQ...Displays good balance and flexibility when rushing off the edge...Splits gaps well on inside stunts...Plays the run well, maintains backfield vision to track ball carrier and possesses ample speed to run down backs from behind...Has limited experience playing off the line...Inexperienced in coverage and struggles when dropping into zone...Can be overwhelmed by bigger blockers...Overall, has potential as pass rushing linebacker, but must round out game to be a consistent contributor.
