What They Are Saying: "He is a highly productive and highly physical player. He has a stat sheet full of production in every major category, including 43 tackles for loss over the last three seasons. He plays with willful demeanor of an NFL alpha linebacker and is sneaky talented as a rusher either blitzing or aligning off the edge." – Lance Zierlein, NFL Analyst
