Notes:

The Idaho prep was an all-state linebacker and tight end as a senior and was the state champion in both the shot put and the discus as a junior. Played in all 16 games as a true freshman in 2008, recording 18 tackles, zero tackles for loss and zero sacks with one forced fumble. In ’09, he posted 32-0-0 with two pass breakups and one interception in 15 games. Made all 11 starts in ’10 and paced the team in tackles with 112-7 1⁄2-1⁄2 with two pass breakups and one forced fumble. Was named Big Sky Defensive Player of the Year in ’11, registering 131-9-4 with two pass breakups, two interceptions and two forced fumbles in 14 starts. Also participated in the throwing events for the Montana track squad. Team captain.

Positives:

Form tackler generates pop on contact. Excellent two-year production. Extremely tough and competitive. Very consistent, hardworking and durable. Plays hard and competes. Takes on blockers with physicality. Works hard in the weight room. 

Negatives:

Short arms. Tight hips. Average athlete (and showed stumbling in Combine drills). Heavy-legged short-stepper — has marginal foot speed and can be outflanked to the perimeter. Not explosive (30-inch vertical). Not stout at the point. Liability in man coverage — cannot keep pace with backs. Marginal competition.

Summary:

Try-hard, productive Big Sky standout who might be relegated to a backup, two-down thumper role. Lack of versatility detracts from value and will have to earn his way on special teams.
