Notes:
Named to All-Pac-12 First team and earned Stanford's Most Outstanding Senior Award in 2013 ... Appeared on the 2012 All-Pac-12 second team in 2012 and 2011 ... Racked up 19 tackles, 7.5 stops for loss, 4.5 sacks and one blocked punt in nine games during redshirt senior campaign ... Started all 14 games at defensive end in 2012 for one of the nation's premier defensive units ... Tied for second on the team in tackles for loss (14.5) and sacks (7.5) during senior season ... Started in 12 of 13 games to make 35 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks as a junior in 2011 ... Considered an impact player for theCardinal's defensive success over the past three seasons ... Previous injuries make his durability questionable ... Does a good job of disengaging blockers to make plays on ball carriers ... Not a great athlete and does not have the pass rushing ability to be an every down player on the defensive line ... Excellent work ethic ... Often overshadowed by exceptional teammates ... Could be useful in a hybrid defensive scheme due to his label as a "tweener".
