Notes:
Won 2010 Rudy Award and the ACC's Brian Piccolo Award...Entered 2009 season asdefending ACC Defensive Player of they Year, but missed entire campaign with Ewing's sarcoma...2008 AP Third Team All-American and a finalist for the Butkus Award...2008 quarterfinalist for the Lott Trophy and three-time ACC Defensive Player of the Week, finishing the campaign with 110 total tackles, 13 TFLs, three sacks, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and two touchdowns off of six interceptions (more than any linebacker in the nation)...Returned from illness to start all 13 games in 2010, finishing thirdon the team in total tackles (65) and solo tackles (50), and tied for first on team with two forced fumbles...High character, motor, intensity and football IQ...Nose for the ball...Pursues ball carriers aggressively and takes efficient angles...Good size, length, balance and vision...Gains good depth in pass coverage and rarely is fooled by misdirection or play action...Average agility...Solid coverage skills...Reliable open field tackler with masterful technique...Relies on speed or bull rush in pass rushing situations and could work to refine skill set...Overall, a strong prospect, although teams will be sure to address health concerns and test strength in left leg, which is fortified by a titanium rod.
