First Team All-SEC and a First Team All-American in 2011...Played in all 13 games for South Carolina during senior season, registering 48 tackles and two interceptions while leading the team in tackles for loss (15.0) and sacks (10.0), the latter tying a single-season school record...Also scored three touchdowns in 2011, including two in the Gamecocks' 45-42 victory over Georgia with a 68-yard fake-punt return and a five-yard fumble recovery...One of the highest-graded defensive players at the NFL Combine...Brings incredible versatility, having played nearly every position in the defensive front seven during his collegiate career...Uncommon blend of size, speed and athleticism...Has a high motor and a knack for always being around the football...Dynamic playmaker who can help out in many different way, but he'd likely be most effective early in his career rushing the passer from the outside.
