Notes:

First name is pronounced “ja-QWEESE.” The Texas prep played in all 14 games (one start against Colorado) as a true freshman in 2008 and registered 46 tackles, three tackles for loss and one sack with two passes defended. Wore uniform No. 53 his first year. Posted 39-4-1 1⁄2 with one pass batted down, one interception (43-yard touchdown) and two forced fumbles in 13 games (five starts) in ’09. Started all 13 games in ’10 at right defensive end and recorded 35-10-5 1⁄2 with three passes batted down, two forced fumbles and a blocked kick. Made 11 starts in ’11 and tallied 39-9-5 with four passes batted down and four forced fumbles. Missed two games early in the season with a dislocated left elbow. Graduated in December in just 3 1⁄2 years. Team captain.

Positives:

Quick take-off to gain a step at the snap. Flashes quick hands to slap and swim. Tries to get his hands in passing lanes. Very good balance and body control. Plays hard and runs to the ball — makes tackles in backside pursuit (good closing speed). Rushed from the outside and inside. Solid personal and football character.

Negatives:

Lacks ideal bulk and has ordinary length and small hands. Average eyes and instincts. Lacks exceptional strength or athletic traits to compensate for tweener size. Average explosiveness and power. Needs to refine hand use and counters — not violent. Does not accelerate off blocks. Can be run at and gets outmuscled by double-teams. Average sack production. Disappears for stretches. 

Summary:

Tweener-sized, athletic, competitive speed rusher whose speed isn’t special. Might warrant interest as a 3-4 outside linebacker, but is most effective attacking up the field on passing downs.
