High SchoolCozad (Cozad, Nebraska)
2010 Associated Press Second Team All-American...First Team Big 12 Conference selection in both 2009 and 2010...Played in just five games in 2011 because of a torn pectoral muscle, recording 22 tackles and a sack...Combined for 19 sacks and 32 tackles for loss in his sophomore and junior campaigns...One of the highest graded defensive tackles at the NFL Combine, but injury recovery excluded him from participating in the bench press...Possesses athletic ability to perhaps shift to defensive end, especially in a 3-4 scheme...Has shown ability to shed blocks and make explosive plays in the backfield...Some thought his 2009 success was primarily attributed to playing next to Ndamukong Suh, but proved in 2010 that he could anchor the Nebraska line himself...Injury-plagued senior season may have dashed first-round prospects, but could still be a great value in the mid-rounds.
