Notes:
2010 ACC Defensive Player of the Year...Winner of Bronco Nagurski Trophy (given to top defensive player in the nation)...Led NCAA in 2010 with 15.5 sacks and recorded 25 TFL...Underwent January surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee and was forced to sit out agility tests at the scouting combine and Clemson's March 10 pro day...Complete defensive line package...Gifted pass rusher...Explodes out of stance...Possesses overwhelming upper body strength...Gets hands up and into passing lanes when unable to reach opposing quarterback...NFL-ready run stopper...Utilizes quickness and awareness to keep containment on the edge...High motor...Competes from sideline to sideline...Explosive on the edge...Possesses next-level closing speed and ball carriers find him difficult to elude...Student of the game who matured after the loss of his mentor Gaines Adams (cardiac arrest) and father (seizure) in the past year...Still one of the top defensive prospects in the draft despite growing concern over his surgically repaired knee.
