Last name is pronounced "FEW-ger." Spent his first two years of high school in Jacksonville, Fla. before graduating from Montini Catholic in Illinois, where he played defensive end and tight end, while also competing in basketball and track and field. Dealt with back spasms in 2007 and redshirted. Missed most of ’08 spring practice because of a sprained foot, then broke his collarbone during fall camp and missed the first three games. On the season, recorded 14 tackles, zero tackles for loss and zero sacks with a forced fumble in nine appearances. Played all 12 games in ’09, drawing eight starts in place of injured starter Steven Stone, and tallied 21-2-1 with an interception. Started 10-of-12 games in ’10, posting 22-5-3 with a batted pass and four forced fumbles. In ’11, notched 33-13 1/2-8 with four batted passes and three forced fumbles in 13 starts. Graduated.Summary:
Second-team All-SEC performer and Combine snub whose impressive pro-day performance led to increased NFL attention, including a handful of personal visits. Shows some hip stiffness and is not a dynamic speed rusher — average get-off and closing burst — but tries to keep himself clean, flashes a spin move (see Arkansas) and keeps working to the quarterback. Gives effort in the run game — works to disengage from single blocks, flattens and chases hard. High-motor defender who plays with urgency, as evidenced early in Alabama contest when he was in on the opening-kickoff tackle and then ripped down Marquis Maze’s jet sweep on the second play from scrimmage. Should contribute readily on special teams and develop into a rotational 4-3 right end, or is capable of rushing and zone-dropping as a stand-up linebacker. Is worthy of a draft selection and has broad appeal.
