Notes:
2011 First Team All-Big 12 Conference selection after posting 60 tackles, 13.0 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks and an interception...Played a hybrid defensive end/linebacker position at Oklahoma, although is expected to make the shift back to his natural outside linebacker position in the NFL...Strong tackler and very effective against the run, making him a more ideal fit as a 4-3 outside linebacker as opposed to a 3-4 pass-rushing specialist...Will need to adjust to coverage assignments at the next level...Outstanding athlete, running a 4.68 40-yard dash at the Combine and putting up 36 reps in the bench press, second-most among all defensive players...Big hitter bound to make an early impact on special teams.
