Notes:
Was a Consensus All-American, All-Pac-12 Conference selection, Bednarik Award Semifinalist, Rotary Lombardi Award semifinalist and team captain as a senior ... Selected to participate in the Senior Bowl ... Also earned a spot on the All-Pac-12 First Team in 2012 as a junior ... Stood out on one of the nation's premier defensive units in 2013 with 62 total tackles, 1.68 tackles for loss per game and 15 sacks ... Ranked second nationally with 1.07 sacks per contest as a senior ... Racked up team-highs of 10 sacks and 18 tackles for loss as a junior ... Returned first career interception for a touchdown versus Washington in 2012 ... Started 13 games at outside linebacker as a sophomore en route to 40 tackles, 10 for loss and 6.5 sacks ... Limited to only two games in first season due to injury ... Shows solid speed and quickness from the edge ... Possesses tremendous agility which allows him to contribute in coverage and pursue ball carriers ... Does a great job of locating the ball and plays with a tremendous motor ... May be viewed as a "tweener" as his size is not quite up to par with the average starting NFL defensive end ...Benefited from being part of a defense filled with future professionals ... Toughness and high ceiling will boost draft stock.
