Father died in a car accident before he was born. Brother, Kevin is a linebacker for the Dolphins. Also ran track (hurdles, high jump) as a Los Angeles, Calif. prep. Began his college career at Delta State, where he appeared in all 12 games (wore jersey No. 29), recording 20 tackles, one for loss (sack) with two batted passes as a true freshman in 2007. Sat out ’08 per transfer rules, garnering scout team player of the year recognition. Sat out ’09 spring practice (shoulder surgery). A reserve outside linebacker and rush end in the fall, played 11 games and tallied 12-1½-1½ with a forced fumble and a blocked punt. Did not play in the season opener against Notre Dame and SMU. Played all 13 games in ’10 and posted 30-4½-3 with a forced fumble. Suffered a severely cracked pelvis during ’11 spring practice, but recovered to start all 13 games at rush end (replaced Bengals third-rounder Dontay Moch) and produce 51-8-5 with a batted pass and a forced fumble. Graduated.Summary:
Has a lean, athletic build with room for added bulk, as well as fluid movement skills — has speed to rush the passer and flexibility to deploy in coverage. However, is raw and lacks bulk strength (too easily run at). One-year starter bounced back from a hip injury to record just average production, but impressive pro day numbers will prompt teams to consider him as a stand-up rusher, “Will” or nickel ‘backer. His 10-foot, 9-inch broad jump bested all defensive linemen and linebackers at the Combine and his 6.7-second 3-cone drill equaled Bruce Irvin’s pace-setting mark. Mentally tough and has a passion for the game
