Notes:
Honored as a Consensus All-American and First-Team All-SEC selection in 2013 ... Had a breakout campaign during senior year with 48 total tackles, 19 tackles for loss and 11.5 sacks to go along with a pair of forced fumbles ... Racked up 22 stops, seven for loss and 4.5 sacks in 2012 as a junior ... Appeared in 26 games over the span of his first two seasons at Missouri ... Shows very good initial quickness to get past opposing offensive tackles and get to the passer ... Does a great job of using lower body to overpower bigger opponents ... Uses quickness to overcome size disadvantage and drop back in coverage effectively ... Struggles to separate from blockers once fully engaged ... Could be forced to convert to outside linebacker at the next level due to a lack of length and power ... Declared his homosexuality publicly after his college career, making him the first openly homosexual NFL prospect in the history of the league.
