|Was a 2010 All-Big 12 Second-Team selection after racking up 62 tackles, 7.0 TFLs and two sacks as a senior...A Penn State transfer in 2008...The top-rated nose tackle in this draft...Massive, yet agile...Extraordinary athlete, with great hands...Awfully difficult to block with just one player...Can collapse the pocket with a strong bull rush...Has the quickness to penetrate as well...Huge upside...Will need to be disciplined in terms of his weight, with the potential to pack on the pounds.|
