Draft Result

Drafted in the 2010 Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 4th round with the #18 pick.
Great athlete with pass rush skills who will need to learn how to play standing up as a rush linebacker for the Steelers.


  • Starting experience at both linebacker and defensive end.
  • Tremendous instincts as a blitzer. Times blitz exceptionally well.
  • Looks comfortable moving in space.


  • Only two years as a starter. Did not start two years at a single position. Very raw.
  • A solid player for the Buckeyes, but not dominant. Received bad advice about enter draft early.
  • Liability in pass coverage.
