Notes:
2010 Consensus First-Team All-American, First-Team All-SEC selection and SEC Defensive Player of the Year...Won the 2010 Lombardi Award given to the nation's best linemen...Huge junior season in 2010, finishing with 60 total tackles, 24.0 TFLs and 11.5 sacks for national champion Auburn...One of the most physically gifted athletes in this draft.. Good size and size potential...A superb athlete who is a disruptive force in the middle of the line with the ability to both play tough against the run and get up the field and make plays...Can collapse the pocket...There is a fear that he is a one-year wonder, after transferring from Copiah-Lincoln Community College...Regarded as a dirty player at times, although it isn't likely to hurt his status as one of the top overall players in this draft.
