Notes:
Second-Team All-Pac-10 as a senior in 2009...Finished third in the Pac-10 in tackles (94) and second in TFLs (15.5) last season...After splitting time between inside and outside linebacker positions as a junior, Butler played strictly inside as a senior....Lacks the ideal bulk to excel at the middle linebacker position, but Butler is one of the fastest risers at theposition...Is an aggressive player who explodes to the football and makes plays...Does not avoid collisions with fullbacks in the hole...Is able to cover backs and tight ends effectively...A team captain who works hard and has the desire to succeed...Extremely smart and coachable...Can be a bit overaggressive at times, but tremendous athleticism overshadows many shortcomings...Considered one of the better inside linebacker prospects in this draft.
