Strengths

  • Best all-around defensive end in the draft
  • Good combination of power and athleticism
  • Constantly making plays in the backfield. 19 TFL and 12.5 sacks in 2009
  • Ideal size and bulk to play DE in a 4-3
  • Quick initial burst of the ball
  • Disciplined pass rusher. Very rarely takes poor angles and takes himself out of play
  • Instinctive
  • An underrated run defender
  • Took over games by himself in the ACC. Forced teams to play a conservative passing game with quick throws
 

Weaknesses

  • Against the run he gives up the inside too easily
  • Not a good fit for the 3-4
  • Struggled to make an impact vs. top tackles (limited production vs. Bryan Bulaga and Jason Fox)
  • A bit streaky - 5 sacks in first 2 games yet just 1 sack in his last 4 games
  • Only one year of elite production
