Notes:
Named preseason All-American heading into senior year with the Missouri Tigers after being named Third-Team All-American in 2008...Weatherspoon was a 2008 Butkus Award Finalist and a quarterfinalist for the Lott Trophy as well...First-Team All-Big 12 in 2007, 2008 and 2009...Named defensive MVP of the Alamo Bowl with 17 tackles against Northwestern after 2008 campaign...Led Missouri in total tackles this past season with an impressive 111 stops, his 76 solo tackles more than all but two of his teammates had total in 2009...Weatherspoon was second on the Tigers with 14.5 tackles for loss and also second with 4.5 sacks...Used speed to run around blocks in order to register a staggering 155 tackles during junior campaign...Infectious attitude and gives maximum effort on every play...Falcons hope Weatherspoon develops into an impact player right out of the chute.
