I think he's been overrated all year. He only won all those awards because of the girlfriend story and the media sympathy. There were numerous LB's with better numbers who didn't even get considered for those awards. It was a farce that he was even invited to the Heisman ceremony. There have been much better defensive performances over the years than his. All of his hype stems from this story about his girlfriend.
That said, I can't comment on his draftability unless I got to see him at the combine, pro day, workouts, etc. His interview process will be crucial as well. Too many factors right now, but to answer OP I would lean toward only drafting him in rounds 3-4 if he free falls.
