Notes:
Much was expected in 2009 from this talented linebacker, and although it wasn't a breakout season, he still finished with a career-high 65 total tackles, and led the Seminoles in TFLs (13) and sacks (6.5)...Tabbed an All-ACC Second-Team member as a senior...Lacks ideal size to become a star right away in the NFL, but is a workout warrior, with a non-stop motor...Above-average speed and athleticism...Reads and reacts well, but struggles at times to break free from much bigger blockers...Exceptional blitz skills, with a real feel in terms of timing...Tough guy who will play through pain...Lack of ideal size could be a concern in terms of durability at the next level...Could earn playing time right away on special teams.
