Named to the All-Big East Conference First Team in 2011 despite playing in only seven games due to a knee injury, finishing with 38 tackles, 7.5 tackles for a loss, two forced fumbles and a team-high 4.5 sacks...Proved to be fully healthy at the NFL Combine by running a 4.87 40-yard dash and recording a 35-inch vertical leap...Displays good technique and is an active player in the box...Undersized and could run into problems when facing stronger offensive tackles, but skill set is better suited as a defensive end in a traditional 4-3 scheme as apposed to an outside linebacker in a 3-4.
