Has a child. Also participated in track as a Texas prep. Signed with Oklahoma State out of high school but did not receive certification from the NCAA. Walked on at Texas Tech in 2007 and saw action in six games, making four tackles, one tackle for loss and zero sacks. Was dismissed from Texas Tech in August of ’08 for violating team rules and did not play in ’09 to concentrate on his academics at Dallas Community College. Transferred to Prairie View in ’10 and played in 10 contests, recording 27-8-51⁄2 with a blocked kick. In ’11, broke the Southwestern Athletic Conference single-season sack record previously held by Robert Mathis — started 9-of-11 contests and racked up 81-241⁄2-22 with two batted passes and six forced fumbles. Was invited to the Combine but was not on campus when Prairie View received the invitation and the information did not make it to him on time.Positives:
Large hands. Gets off the ball quickly. Can dip, bend the corner and run the arc fluidly. Good balance, body control and change of direction. Closes fast. Flashes a spin move. Historic one-year production. Has upside.Negatives:
One-year wonder. Can’t find the ball — average instincts and football intelligence. Inflated sack production from facing marginal (conference) competition — did not stand out at lower-tier all-star game. Turns 25 during rookie season.Summary:
Raw, talented, motivated, developmental rush linebacker prospect with intriguing natural pass-rush ability. Could have a chance in Baltimore or Pittsburgh with simple instructions to attack the edges.
