All-Big Ten honorable mention selection in 2012 and 2013 ... Never missed a game during four-year career, playing in a school-record 54 games ... 20 tackles in 2013 ... Set career highs in tackles (37) and TFL (7.5) in 2012 ... Two career blocked kicks ... Very strong, especially in his lower body ... Occupies a lot of space, fits well as a run-stuffing nose tackle in a 3-4 scheme ... High-energy and plays with attitude ... Durable ... Not a great pass rusher ... Doesn't generate a strong burst off the line ... Slow feet ... Not a big-time playmaker.
