Notes:
Started 12 of 13 games at linebacker for Temple in 2011, recording 70 tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss, 5.0 sacks, and four forced fumbles...Anointed team captain his senior season...Good athleticism and straight-line speed...Hard-nosed and does not shy away from contact...Lacks ideal size for an NFL linebacker...Considered an overachiever in college, but has always been motivated and hard-working.
