Ht: 6-2 Wt: 227 40: 4.64 Pos: OLB
Bio: Starter the past four seasons and multiple All-Conference selection recording 98 tackles, 17 tackles for loss, 5 sacks, 1 interception and 8 pass defenses as a senior. All-American choice in 2002. Junior numbers were 84/9/6.
Pos: Fluid, athletic linebacker with top sideline-to-sideline range. Displays solid footwork in pass coverage, moves well laterally and takes good angles to the action. Flows to the play, displays a burst of closing speed and slides off blocks getting to the action. Forceful moving up the field and quick filling the gaps. Immediately alters his angle of attack and scrapes laterally to the action.
Neg: Hesitant and slow to reach on occasion. Lacks the great body control.
Analysis: Skilled enough in pass coverage that he should nicely fit in at weak side linebacker.
