Notes:
The Pac-10 Conference Defensive Freshman of the Year in 2009, named to several watch lists (Chuck Bednarik, Bronko Nagurski, Rotary Lombardi and Walter Camp) entering junior campaign with Arizona State...A semifinalist for the Butkus Award in his last season with the Sun Devils, played in all 13 games in 2011, starting 12 as he tied for second on the team with 69 tackles, making 40 solo stops...Has opted to make himself available for this year's NFL Draft but has stated that he intends to return to school to earn his degree...Has great potential, but came up small both at the Combine and his pro day as he measured up rather poorly against other linebackers in his 40-yard dash time and other ratings...A fierce competitor when he focuses his efforts, but clearly undisciplined both on the field and off and because he is difficult to control...Pro teams will certainly think twice about adding him to their roster in spite of his immense talent.
