Notes:

The California prep redshirted and was named Scout Team Player of the Year in 2007. A reserve linebacker in ’08 who played in 12-of-13 games with 14 tackles, one tackle for loss and no sacks. Started 8-of-13 games in ’09 and contributed 37-3 1⁄2-0 with three pass breakups. Started the first three games of the season at ILB and five games at OLB. Took over the starting ILB position in ’10, producing 86-5 1⁄2-2 with three passes defended and three forced fumbles in 12 contests. Made all 13 starts at ILB in ’11 and recorded 82-10 1⁄2-2 with two pass breakups.

Positives:

Stoutly built and thickly muscled. Secure clear-path tackler. Can drop into short zones. Football smart. Has special-teams experience. Good character.

Negatives:

Tight hips. Slow trigger. Catches too much contact and is not strong at the point of attack. Pedestrian speed and suddenness. Limited range (can be beat to the perimeter). Struggles to break down in space. Can play with more urgency. Has underachiever traits.

Summary:

Compact, inconsistent inside linebacker who looks the part of a thumper but does not play downhill or with a lot of strength. Intermittent violence, explosion and intensity are concerning.
