Notes:
2010 finalist for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and the Butkus Award and a semifinalist for the Bednarik Award...2010 All-SEC First Team selection, Georgia's Most Valuable Defensive Player, and a CFPW 2010 National Linebacker Trophy winner...2009 All-SEC Second Team selection...Started 13 games in 2010, recording 67 total tackles, including a team-high 18.5 TFLs and 10 sacks, to go with 44 QB hurries, two pass breakups, an interception, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries...Ranked second in the SEC in sacks per game (0.77) and TFLs per game (1.42)...Former defensive end who converted to a stand up pass rusher in Georgia's new 3-4 scheme and thrived after the conversion...Hasn't shown well-rounded skill set due to role in Georgia's defense...Typicallyrequired to pin ears back and rush passer, but has shown solid overall awareness...Powerful upper body strength and arm strength at the linebacker position...Explosive first step and speed...Ability to beat blockers around the corner...Can swim back inside, good footwork...Tenacious...Explosive hitter but has difficulty breaking down in open field...Must develop more rush moves...Pass rushing abilities are highly touted at the next level and has already proven capable of switching from defensive line to linebacker, which proves advantageous over similarly skilled players in the draft...Game is not well rounded, but teams will value his potential as a disruptive backfield force.
