Notes:
First Team All-Big Ten Conference selection in 2011 as well as a Consensus All-American...Won the Ted Hendricks Award, given annually to college football's top defensive end after leading the nation in sacks (16.0) and forced fumbles (nine), while also leading his team in tackles for loss with 22.5...An early-entry player who is forgoing his senior season...Very athletic and fast, running a 4.68 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine...Ability to get off the snap quickly and pursue relentlessly down the field led to incredible numbers at Illinois this past season...Physical in the trenches and rarely avoids contact...Great pass-rushing ability helps shield his deficiencies in the run game...Has the athletic ability to shift to outside linebacker for teams that are interested, especially in a 3-4 scheme, but may be better suited bulking up and staying in his natural position as a 4-3 defensive end.
