Had 210 tackles the past couple of years including 92 last fall; has sideline-to-sideline range, but also gets into the backfield on a consistent basis posting 10 sacks and 23 other tackles for loss the past couple of years;
Known as a hard worker in both the weight and film rooms; gets good drops in coverage, but isn’t quite as instinctive when the ball is in the air; missed several games in 2008 with a broken jaw."
Strengths: Plays faster than his timed speed, good off the edge. An effective pass rusher and willing special teams contributor. Ball-hawk that creates turnovers on defense. Good durability.
Weaknesses: Liability in pass coverage. His skills are that of a 4-3 defensive end, but his size will be a limitation for him. Unrefined football player, will require special attention from coaches.
Projection: Projecting 7th round or UDFA at this point. Size is a major concern, but the productivity insists that he's hard-working enough to make a practice squad or special teams unit."
