Notes:

Prepped at Cincinnati (OH) St. Xavier, where he was a four-year basketball player — spent more years in the band (three years) than on the football team (one year). Won a state championship and drew a scholarship. As a true freshman in 2008, saw action in nine games — started three of the last five at left end —and recorded four tackles, one tackle for loss and zero sacks. Posted 24-6 1/2-2 over 12 starts at end in ’09. Started 8-of-13 games in ’10 — five at defensive tackle, two at DE and one at nose tackle — and managed 14-5 1/2-2 with one batted pass, one interception and one forced fumble while enduring a sports hernia that sidelined him the ensuring spring practice. Playing inside in ’11, recorded 19-6-4 with one forced fumble in nine games (five starts) after being hampered by a foot injury for the final two months of the season. Was not allowed to play in the Cardinals’ bowl game after December DUI arrest — reportedly fell asleep and struck a light pole on I-65 the morning after his graduation.

Summary:

Take-notice workout numbers surfaced at pro day — has a thick, well-proportioned build with very long arms and ran in the 4.7s at 284 pounds, though he could stand to improve his upper-body strength. Has a chance to provide depth, be it inside a 4-3 or as a 3-4 five-technique. However, his tape is less appealing, as he gives effort but does not consistently impact games. Functional strength and athletic ability leave something to be desired and he does not use his hands violently to disengage (marginal pass-rush value). Possesses solid intangibles — considered tough and smart, works hard at his craft and has a likable personality (DUI incident was seen as an aberrational departure from character).
