Notes:

Has a daughter. Played tight end and linebacker as a California prep. Played 11 games as a true freshman in 2008, starting the final nine outside, and recorded 51 tackles, two for loss and zero sacks with two pass breakups. Started all 24 games in 2009 and ’10 and was the Western Athletic Conference’s top tackler both seasons — totaled 115-8-0 with three pass breakups, two interceptions and two forced fumbles in ’09 from the middle and 133-8-1⁄2 with four pass breakups in ’10 from the outside. Broke his right forearm against Boise State in the final contest of the season. Started all 13 games in ’11 and recorded 147-111⁄2-4 with two interceptions. Named Defensive MVP of the Senior Bowl after racking up seven tackles and an interception. Team captain. Did not show at the Combine for what reportedly was pneumonia. 

Positives:

Has an NFL physique — well-proportioned and muscular. Weight-room strong. Long arms to gain extension or drag down ballcarriers. Excellent leaping ability. Pursues hard. Generates pop on contact. Very productive tackler. Has played inside and outside. Outstanding weight-room worker. Motivated and coachable. North team’s Most Outstanding Player in Senior Bowl.

Negatives:

Lacks ideal height. Does not play to his size. Average instincts and processor speed — can be a tick slow to react. Needs to improve hand use — does not play with pop or power to shed. Lacks an extra gear to compensate for missteps. Agility and change of direction are just adequate. Inconsistent tackler. Shows some tightness in coverage. Lacks flexibility and sophistication as a blitzer. Could struggle to handle NFL speed of the game from both sides.

Summary:

Yoked up, long-armed, productive, four-year starter who lacks instincts for the middle and speed for the outside. Versatility intrigues, but leaves you wanting more. Looks like Tarzan but plays too often like Jane. Developmental prospect.
