Combine Results




  • Natural corner turner, rounds off the tackle at great angles.
  • Solid body control, doesn't lose himself athletically.
  • Shows consistent success when bull rushing, still looks like he could add some lower power.
  • Shined when star DE Greg Romeus went down, earning the Big East DPOY award
  • Really exploits bad footwork with the classic outside swim
  • Efficient first step thats going to help him contribute day one
  • Showed dramatic improvement fron 2009 to 2010, great sign


  • One trick pony at times, tends to rely on the outside swim/step move
  • Inconsistent motor, seems to give up when he loses sight of the ball
  • Character concerns, saw reports of him being arrested for a brawl on campus
  • Three point stance seems to be poor, weight looks to be alittle to far back
  • Struggled with the long arms of Orlando Franklin (OT, Miami)
  • Needs to focus on winning that hand battle
  • A little undersized to play in 4-3, not athletic enough to play rush linebacker
