Notes:
Two-time First-team All-American...Two-time Butkus Award Finalist...Two-time First-team All-SEC...2012 SEC Defensive Player of the Year...Led the nation in sacks (14.5) and TFL (24.5) in 2012 (both school-records)...Led SEC with seven forced fumbles (school record)...Transferred from USC in 2010 after being denied clearance from the Trojans' medical staff due to a neck injury suffered in the 2009 season...Playmaker...Explosive bursts off snap...Consistently puts pressure on quarterbacks...Forces turnovers...Solid in coverage...Has been given a clean bill of health, but questions about neck will linger into pro career...Regarded as perhaps this draft's most explosive playmaker.
