    Seems like he has 6th-7th round grade!?!
    A little over 6-2, weight more or less 260 lbs.

    I had seen a lot of this guy when I checked out Duane Brown.
    I also saw some of him this year.
    An all-around player.

    A relentless worker who has a good spin move.
    I forgot if he has other moves (been watching too many other tapes!)

    Run a 4.52/40 in 05 spring drill (don't know at what weight.)

    Played behind Chris Ellis as a soph. 12 quarterback pressures, 2 sacks.

    Junior: 6.5 sacks and 11 stops behind the line of scrimmage. 18 QB pressures. Three forced fumbles . He also deflected five passes, as the opposition managed to complete just 8-of-42 passes (19.05%) into his area for 44 yards.

    Senior: 7.5 sacks with 14.0 stops behind the line of scrimmage and 17 quarterback pressures. 4 PDs, 2 FFs, 1 INT.

    In 54 games at Tech, he was involved in 128 plays vs. the run, holding the opposition to just 54 yards (0.42 yards per carry) and five first downs vs. the down lineman.

    He has proven to be capable of shutting down the passing attack, as only 18-of-97 passes (18.56%) have been completed in his area by the opposition, good for 112 yards. Those numbers translate to a miniscule 1.15 yards gained per pass attempt.
