Notes:
Tabbed an All-Big Ten honorable mention by the media in 2009, finishing the year with 35 total tackles, 11.5 TFLs and two forced fumbles...Started 23 career games at Iowa and played in 43, amassing 99 total tackles, 26 TFLs and 13 sacks...One of the better three-technique tackles in the draft, with the ability to make plays both along the line and in the backfield...Also has enough athleticism to drop into coverage as well...Superb strength in the weight room, although that doesn't always translate to the field...Struggles at times to shed blockers and needs to give a consistent effort throughout a game to maximize his potential.
