Notes:
2012 and 2011 All-ACC First-Team selection...Fifth in ACC in tackles for loss in 2012 with 14.0, to go along with a career-high six sacks...Posted a career-high 94 total tackles in 2011...Quick off the snap...Strong motor that is dedicated in finishing plays...Proven work ethic...Doesn't have the same type of athletic ability as other prospects, but is a hard working, overachiever.
