Notes:
2012 Nagurski, Bednarik and Lombardi award watchlists...2012 and 2011 First-Team All-Big 12 selection...Three-year starter who racked up 34 tackles for loss and 23 sacks...Led the Big 12 in 2012 in sacks (12.5) and ranked second in tackles for loss (16.5)...Part of Texas teams that won back-to-back bowl games in 2011 and 2012...2013 NFL combine invitee...Only participated in bench press and recorded 21 reps...Prototypical size for the professional level...Strong punch and extension of arms on the line...Anticipates snap and gets off the ball well...Quick feet and hands and wraps up ball carriers..Doesn't switch directions well and lacks great lateral quickness...Needs to improve work in shedding blocks.
