Notes:
First Team All-American in 2008 and two-time All-SEC First Team selection (2007, 2008)...Missed the season opener in 2008, but started the last 11 games, recording 49 total tackles, with seven sacks...Naturally athletic with outstanding speed...Fires off the snap thanks to his outstanding quickness...An extremely hard worker and has all the qualities a leader would possess...Plenty of experience against top tier competition...Terrific speedgives him the ability to crash the front line and penetrate into the backfield...Enters the draft as a 25-year-old rookie...Has struggled with injuries throughout his college career.
