Notes:

First name is pronounced “TIE-dreek.” Also played basketball as a North Carolina prep. Redshirted in 2007. Played 12 games in ’08, drawing one start, and was credited with 18 tackles, 4 1⁄2 tackles for loss and one sack. Did not play against Connecticut (chest). Played all 13 games in ’09, starting twice, and posted 24-4-2 with three batted passes and one forced fumble. Started all 13 games in ’10, producing 47-3-2 1⁄2 with one batted pass. In ’11, he totaled 46-4 1⁄2-1 with two passes batted down, one interception and one forced fumble in 13 starts. Team captain.

Positives:

Thick trunk. Functional base strength. Plays on his feet and gives good effort. Competes against double-teams. Solid character. Hardworking, mature and accountable. 

Negatives:

Fleshy body without a lot of room for growth potential. Heavy-legged with limited hip snap. Stiff, unsudden movement. Marginal quickness and agility. Plays upright and gets displaced. Average eyes and instincts. Limited pass-rush skill — shows few moves and sack production was minimal. Could stand to play with more urgency.  

Summary:

Durable, hardworking role player who could fight for a backup role in a 4-3, but was not a playmaker in college and upside is limited.
