Height: 6’2”

Weight: 265

Awards: First Team All-Pac 12

Consensus ranking on the NFL Draft Board by Position: Sixth defensive end/outside linebacker to show up on the NFL Draft Board behind Derek Barnett

Notes:

  • Getting crushed in the draft by the overwhelming number of defensive ends/outside linebackers in the draft
  • By comparison the first tight end to show up on the NFL Draft Board is OJ Howard to Baltimore Ravens with pick #16
  • Committed to Cal, but failed to qualify academically
  • Arrived at UCLA after a year at Contra Costa College
  • Good change of direction
  • NFL will love his relentless motor, doesn’t give up on a play
  • With a little NFL coaching his raw talent could provide him with a more productive NFL career than those drafted ahead of him
