Notes:

Also competed in basketball and track as a New Hampshire prep, in addition to playing linebacker, defensive end and running back. Redshirted in 2007. Played 11 games in ’08, starting four, and recorded 20 tackles, three for loss and 1 1⁄2 sacks with one forced fumble. Did not play against Louisville and North Carolina while nursing a high left ankle sprain. Started 12-of-13 games in ’09, notching 37-6-3 with two batted passes and one forced fumble. Did not start against Rhode Island (gave way to an extra defensive end). Played inside and outside in ’10, when he totaled 39-10-2 1⁄2 with four batted passes, two interceptions and a forced fumble in 13 starts. Made all 13 starts at DT spot in ’11 and logged 46-13 1⁄2-4 1⁄2 with four passes batted down. Two-time team captain.

Positives:

Engages quickly off the snap. Athletic. Excellent foot speed. Flashes short-area quickness and disruptive ability. Generally locates the ball. Shows upper-body strength to press and lock out (bench-pressed 225 pounds 36 times at the Combine). Plays hard. Tries to get his hands in passing lanes. Versatile — lined up inside, outside and occasionally in a two-point stance. Has special-teams experience. Three-year starter. Terrific intangibles — very smart, coachable and hardworking. Has leadership traits. Showed well at the Senior Bowl and was impressive at the Combine.

Negatives:

Inconsistent. Not explosive or violent. Shows some tightness in his hips when working edges or forced to redirect. Average lateral agility, range and finishing burst. Could stand to play with better leverage. Tends to lower his head, bend at the waist and put himself at a disadvantage off the snap — marginalizes his base and balance. Struggles to anchor vs. double-teams. Unrefined hand use — inconsistent placement and can be slow to disengage. Ordinary sack production — limited pass-rush arsenal and does not dominate one-on-one matchups. Does not sense screens.

Summary:

Solid, functional football player with clear first-round athletic traits, but bulked up as a senior, appeared out of shape and did not consistently finish. Prototype build and Combine performance could push him into the first round.
