Notes:
Two year starter along the defensive front for Richmond, earning All-CAA honors as both a junior and senior...Capped off a solid collegiate career by earning First-Team All-American honors in 2008, after amassing 56 total tackles, 20 TFLs and 11.5 sacks...Led the Spiders to the FCS national championship recording a whopping four sacks in the title game against Montana...Solid build with the ability to add more mass...Excellent initial burst off the snap...Can close quickly on a ball carrier...A bit of a tweener, lacking ideal size for the NFL as a downlineman, but can be effective both against the run and as a pass rusher.
