Notes:

Has a daughter. Played on both the offensive and defensive lines as a Louisiana prep while also participating in basketball and track. Was a grayshirt at Northwest Mississippi Community College in 2007.  In 11 games (eight starts) in ’08, registered 47 tackles, six tackles for loss and zero sacks with two batted passes and two forced fumbles. Started 11-of-12 games played at defensive tackle in ’09 with 70-12-1. In ’10, logged 47-11-2 with two passes batted down, one blocked kick and recovered a fumble in the endzone in 10 games (seven starts). Led the squad in tackles and tackles for loss in ’11 after posting 60-8 1⁄2-3 with two forced fumbles in 11 games (10 starts). Has had the lateral meniscus repaired in each knee twice — right knee (2009, ’10) and the left knee (2005, ’11) — all suffered while playing basketball.

Positives:

Excellent size and mass. Plays with strong hands and can control the line of scrimmage and handle the double team. 

Negatives:

Durability is a major concern --— had microfracture surgery after four significant knee injuries and long-term durability requires scrutiny. Unproven vs. lesser competition. Is late to find the ball. Limited athlete. Does not play hard or range outside a very short area.

Summary:

Raw, mammoth, big-boned, injury-stricken size prospect capable of providing depth in a camp as a wide-bodied, 3-4 nose tackle.
