Selected by Seattle Seahawks
Round 6, pick 10 (183 overall)
BIO: Full-time starter as a senior garnering SEC Honorable Mention honors, totaling 41 tackles, four tackles for loss and two sacks. Started four games the prior season posting 28 tackles after 22 tackles as a red-shirt sophomore in seven games.

POSITIVES: Explosive inside player best placed next to a wide body. Solid athlete who quickly gets off the ball with a nice first step, displays a burst of speed and overall explosion to his game. Plays sideline-to-sideline, collapses laterally to defend the run and gets push up the field.

NEGATIVES: Not a knee bender and gets upright, making himself an easy target for opponents. Lacks balance, a bit stiff and wears down over the course of a game.

ANALYSIS: Solid run defender but only a marginal pass rusher which surprises some. Inability to bend his knees or twist and stunt off the line may negate any possibilities in a three technique and probably best as a backup in a four man alignment.

PROJECTION: Early Fifth Round
