BIO: Second-team All-Conference selection as a senior, leading the Ducks in tackles with 121, while also totaling 9 1/2 tackles for loss, four sacks, and seven pass defenses. Totaled 92-9-2 the prior season.

POSITIVES: Super-smart, tough linebacker best defending the run. Instinctive and quickly reads or anticipates the action, filling the correct gaps up the field and making a lot of plays with his head. Hard-hitting and always looking to intimidate opponents. Squares and wraps up into his tackles, bringing ball carriers down on initial contact.

NEGATIVES: Marginal athlete who's game lacks quickness, explosion, as well as speed. Does not display top sideline-to-sideline range and slows in the traffic as he makes his way to the flanks.

ANALYSIS: Could find a home on special teams if a coach takes a liking to him.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
