Notes:
A three-time All-American, earning Consensus First-Team honors in 2012...Heisman Trophy runner up as a senior, finished 2012 as the most decorated player in NCAA history, winning six major awards...Won the Butkus Award, Lombardi Award, Chuck Bednarik Award, Nagurski Award, Walter Camp Award, and Maxwell Award in 2012...Was the first defensive player to win the Maxwell Award since 1980...Finished college career with 437 total tackles, 34.5 TFL and 8.5 sacks...Registered all seven career interceptions in 2012...Prototypical middle linebacker...Powerful build with a low center of gravity......Possesses great leadership ability...Diagnoses plays and is a sure tackler...Poor performance in the National Championship Game against Alabama's stout offensive line, getting embroiled in a peculiar "catfish" hoax and a less-than-stellar Combine has left NFL brass scratching their heads...Certainly has done enough on the field to garner first-round status, but is one of the biggest question marks coming into the draft.
