Combine 40: 5.12 - Position Rank: 28 of 55

Positives: Solid quickness... Reasonably good first step... Decent bend on the corner... Gets good pressure on the pocket... Violent hands... Uses his hands well... Good technique... Pushes the pocket... Good bull rush... Plays with reasonably solid leverage... Good balance... Reasonably good flexibility and body control... Good closing speed... Solid versus the run... Chases the ball... Solid in pursuit... Very solid in backside pursuit... Solid lateral mobility... Changes direction well... Stays low... Tenacious... Active... Good effort... Good motor... Will be looked at as a 3-4 outside linebacker... Much more of a complete player this season... Selected All-Mountain West first team for the 2010 season and All-Mountain West second team for the 2009 season.

Negatives: Not very explosive and lacks the athleticism to play OLB in a 3-4 defense... Had the slowest 10-yard split, 20-yard shuttle and three-cone time of any linebacker at the combine... Has not dropped into coverage much... Lacks good strength at point of attack... Loses ground at point... Is too short and stocky to play defensive end in the NFL, only a third down specialist or situational pass rusher in a 4-3 scheme... Struggled at the NFLPA Game... His stock is falling hard and he may not be drafted... A possible product of TCU's coaches and defensive scheme, several recent TCU products have underperformed in the NFL... Will be a 24-year-old rookie.
