Earned First Team All-Pac-12 Conference Honors in 2011 after leading the league in sacks with 9.5...Also recorded 54 tackles and a team-high 13.0 tackles for loss and three forced fumbles in 12 games played during his junior season...Pass-rushing specialist who many teams view as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme, especially considering he has experience playing the hybrid "elephant" position at USC...Showed extreme strength (35 bench press reps) and athleticism (4.64 40-yard dash, 38.5 vertical leap, 124 inch broad jump) at the NFL Combine...Great explosion and a real nose for the football...Although considered to be an NFL-ready pass-rusher, will need to prove he can cover running backs out in the flat if he's going to play outside linebacker at the next level.
