Notes:

Named a Parade All-America selection as a Georgia prep. Appeared in all 13 games as a true freshman in 2008, making 11 tackles, one tackle for loss and zero sacks to earn Defensive Newcomer of the Year. Saw action in all 13 games in ’09, posting 12-0-0 with a blocked point-after try. Took over as the starting nose tackle in ’10 and logged 36-4-1 1⁄2 with one forced fumble in 13 games (12 starts). The non-start was due to the formation used against Mississippi State. Started all 11 games in which he played at defensive end in ’11 and managed 20-3 1⁄2-1 1⁄2 with one pass batted down. Missed three-plus games because of injuries — Coastal Carolina (strained back) and hurt his ankle on an illegal chop block on the second play of the Georgia Tech game and missed the final two games of the season. Team captain.

Positives:

Good size, length and hand size. Has a thick trunk and lower body — holds his ground and plays with leverage against the run. Competes vs. the double-team. Gives good effort for a big man. Versatile — has played tackle and five-technique. Tough and durable. Loves football.

Negatives:

Not explosive (271⁄2-inch vertical leap). Heavy-legged with marginal quickness. Tight hips (cannot work an edge). Average eyes and reactions inside. Does not always feel pressure. Average hand use to shed. Can do a better job protecting his legs. Marginal pass-rush value.

Summary:

Overshadowed, unflashy, short-area block occupier who could compete for a backup job as a 4-3 nose tackle. Size, competitiveness and motor give him a chance.
