Notes:
2010 Second Team All-SEC...2009 Second Team All-SEC...Team captain in both 2010 and 2009...Started all 13 games at defensive end during 2010 campaign, recording 38 total tackles, 6.5 TFL and 4.5 sacks...Holds school record for most career starts (46)...Tallied a season-high seven tackles in SEC Championship Game vs. Auburn and forced a Cam Newton fumble in the second quarter...Incredibly high football IQ and leadership qualities...Above average athleticism, particularly as an edge speed rusher...Crashes down the line with force and is also more than capable in space...Quick and flexiblehips...Versatile...Capable in pass coverage...Impeccable instincts and awareness ...Lacks a variety of pass rush moves and strength when engaged...Often stays too high and loses leverage as a result...More finesse than physical...High upside...Coachable.
