The 2013 Buck Buchanan Award winner as the FCS defensive player of the year is not big enough (6-foot-1, 240 pounds) to be a defensive end, as he was at Montana State, so he is making the conversion to outside linebacker ... Led the FCS during the regular season with 14 sacks and 20.5 tackles for loss and added 68 tackles, seven QB hurries, two forced fumbles, two blocked kicks and one interception ... Relies on his smaller size to get to the quarterback or chase ball carriers to the sideline ... Did not play in 2010 after leaving Montana State to work in the oil industry, but returned to the Big Sky Conference school a year later ... Played in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in January.
