Notes:

Rushed for more than 1,300 yards as a senior tailback in addition to playing linebacker and safety as a California prep. Redshirted in 2007. Was a reserve linebacker and special-teams player in ’08, making one start at “Will” linebacker against UCLA. In 12 games, totaled 16 tackles, zero tackles for loss and zero sacks with two pass breakups and a forced fumble. Did not play against Washington State after being cited on Sept. 25, 2008 for reckless driving and speed racing when he crashed his Ford Mustang into a Dodge Caravan and banged his head against the steering wheel. Required 75 stitches to close a one-inch gash in his head. Started 11-of-13 games played at the “Sam” linebacker in ’09, posting 54-8-4 1⁄2 with four passes defended and one interception. Made all 13 starts at the rover/strong safety position for the Ducks in ’10 and logged 65 tackles, two pass breakups and zero interceptions with five tackles for loss and two sacks. Was limited by a shoulder injury for part of the season. Returned to his rover position again in ’11 and logged 61-8-3 with two tackles for loss and one sack in 13 starts. Did not play against Colorado (knee).

Positives:

Thickly built. Active near the line of scrimmage. Runs the alley. Has a desire to make plays — fights to get off blocks and is an aggressive tackler. Competes and likes to bang. Has a special-teams mentality.

Negatives:

Tightly wound — physically and emotionally. Not an explosive athlete. Average speed and flexibility. Exposed in space. At times arrives out of control and struggles to break down. Liability in coverage. Limited ball skills. Will require patience grasping complex defensive assignments. Has a short fuse that has led to flags.

Summary:

Strong, physical, hard-nosed box safety in the mold of recent Oregon “rover” backs. Has mental deficiencies, but could compete for a job as a No. 4 safety and special-teams player.
