Notes:
2010 All-ACC Honorable Mention...2010 Butkus Award candidate and team captain...2009 All-ACC Second Team selection...Appeared in 49 games in career at Miami, making 35 starts...Finished career with 308 tackles, including 165 solo stops and 34 TFLs...Led team and ranked third in the ACC in 2010 with 119 total tackles, including 10.5 TFLs...Ranked second on team in total tackles in 2009 with 95...Saw 2008 campaign draw to an early close after suffering a season-ending shoulder injury (appeared in just four games)...Concerns over lingering shoulder problems will be addressed by interested NFLteams...Downhill-style run stuffer...Takes risky angles to meet ball carrier, but often beats blockers to point of attack...Clumsy in pass coverage, lacks ample lateral movement and flexibility in the hips...Strong, powerful tackler...Meets larger backs head-on and breaks down well in space to contain speedier backs...Adequate and unrefined pass rusher...Overall, a solid athlete with a high motor and an eagerness to revel in the physical nature of the game...May initially see time as versatile reserve linebacker and special teams player, with room for expanded playing time.
