Notes:
First Michigan State player to earn back-to-back consensus First Team All-America honors (2009-10) since 1965-66...Three-time All-Big Ten First Team honoree (2008-10)...Earned 2010 Governor's Cup Award (team MVP) and was named one of 16 semifinalists for the Bednarik Award, one of 15 semifinalists for the Butkus Award and one of 12 semifinalists for the Lombardi Award...Led team and ranked seventh in Big Ten in total tackles (106) as a senior...Ranks second all-time in school history in TFLs (46.5), third in total tackles (465)and tied for sixth in sacks (16.5)...Relies on impeccable instincts to compensate for average-size frame...Plays low to the ground and creates a leverage advantage...Can be overpowered by larger blockers...Aggressive style leads to occasional overpursuit...Excellent in pass coverage...Ample speed, agility and flexibility to stay with backs in space...Lack of ideal size creates match-up problems against tight ends and larger backs...Excellent tackler both in space and in traffic...Gets great jump off the ball in pass rush situations...Capable of blitzing outside or through interior gaps...A true playmaker who is durable and had solid leadership skills...Strong prospect, but didn't overwhelm scouts at the Senior Bowl or at the combine.
