Notes:
2004 and 2005 First Team All-ACC...Logged 14.5 TFLs and 10 sacks as a senior...Finished with a staggering 35 QB hurries last year...Posted 16.5 TFLs and 8.5 sacks as a junior...A proven pass-rusher at the collegiate level who makes up for a lack of ideal height with a strong frame...Never gives up on a play...Understands how to use both his speed off the corner and strength to his advantage...Closes on the ball quickly...Not a great natural athlete, Tapp has always put up numbers because of technique and desire...Not a strong player against the run...Would benefit from a wider arsenal of pass-rush moves.
