2010 Second Team All-American, and one of five Butkus Award finalists...First Team All-Pac 10 selection, defensive co-winner of UCLA's Henry R. "Red" Sanders award for Most Valuable Player...2009 Honorable Mention All-Pac 10...Finished 2010 campaign fourth on the team with 68 total tackles, tied for first with four sacks, second with 10 TFLs and tied for second with two interceptions...Started all 13 games in 2009, scored three defensive touchdowns, led UCLA with four forced fumbles, and ranked second on the team with six sacks and 14.5 TFLs...Possesses above-average, straight-line speed and agility...Needs to improve fundamentals, prone to biting on play action fakes and taking false steps on the reverse...Physical player who has size and strength to engage and shed blockers at the point of attack...Good in open space, and fluid in coverage, but may be fooled by veteran quarterbacks at the next level...Generally a reliable tackler, but needs to improve wrap-up skills...Speed pass rusher...Overall, excellent size and athleticism should allow for versatile and productive play at next level.
