TYSON ALUALU
Defensive Tackle/End
University of California at Berkeley Golden Bears
#44
6:02.3-295
Honolulu, Hawaii
Saint Louis High School

OVERVIEW
The unquestioned leader of the Golden Bears defense, Alualu’s ability to play any position on the defensive front is one of
his strengths. A physical defensive end in Cal’s 3-4 alignment, most scouts feel that his best professional position will be
at the “under” tackle spot, likening his style of play to that of the Arizona Cardinals’ Darnell Dockett – a run-stuffing “three
technique” tackle with the ability to generate a fierce pass rush coming off the edge at end in third-down situations.

Alualu has started 39-of-51 games during his career, including his last 38 contests. Since becoming a full-time starter, the
Bears defensive stalwart has been dominant in run situations. On 171 plays during which he produced tackles over the
past three years, he held opponents to 199 yards, an average of a 1.16 yards per carry. Only 10 of those runs resulted in
first downs and just two of those carries gained 10 or more yards. He made 26 third-down tackles and three more on
fourth-down snaps vs. the ground attack, as he delivered 34 total stops (assists/solos) for loss and brought down ball
carriers at the line of scrimmage for no gain 25 times since the beginning of the 2007 campaign.

Alualu has also proven to be an effective pass defender. He has one interception and six pass deflections, along with 11
quarterback pressures since his sophomore season. Only eight-of-32 passes thrown into his area (25.0 percent) were
caught by the opposition, good for 70 yards, an average of 8.75 yards per reception and 2.19 yards per pass attempt. He
delivered 13 third-down hits and one more stop on fourth-down vs. the aerial game, as just one of those pass completions
gained more than ten yards.

Whether starting at strong-side defensive tackle, right defensive end or left end, Alualu has shown the ability to get to the
quarterback and create havoc in the backfield. In addition to his 11 pressures, he has registered 16.0 sacks, 24.5 stops
behind the line of scrimmage, caused four fumbles and recovered four others, returning one of those recoveries for a
score. He also excels on special teams, blocking one field goal for the Golden Bears.

Alualu was regarded as one of the nation’s top defensive line prospects during his career at prep powerhouse Saint Louis
High School in Hawaii. He was a two-time All-State choice by the Honolulu Star Bulletin and was rated the second-best
overall prospect in the state by Rivals.com in 2005, as that recruiting service also ranked him as the 24th-best down
lineman in the nation. The Interscholastic Hawaiian League Defensive Player of the Year was also named to Prep Star’s
All-Far West Region squad.

As a senior, he led the league with 7.0 quarterback sacks while finishing second on the squad with 59 tackles (39 solos).
His best performance came in the Punahou High clash, as Alualu delivered four sacks to go with nine tackles. Twice that
season, he registered 14-tackle performances.

Recruited by California, Alualu signed a letter of intent in 2005, but deferred his enrollment until the spring of 2006. He
became the fourth member of his family to play college football, joining uncle, Tupu Alualu (Hawaii), and cousins Ben
Alualu (Arizona) and Tyrone Alualu (Laney College). He began his Bears career as a reserve defensive tackle (wore
jersey no. 90), lining up behind Brandon Mebane at the strong-side position. He earned his only start for that campaign vs.
Oregon State, as he finished his freshman year with 16 tackles (4 solos).

Alualu switched positions, taking over right defensive end duties, as he also switched jersey numbers (to no. 44) as a
sophomore. He was the recipient of the Brick Muller Award, given to the team’s Most Valuable Defensive Lineman in
2007. He collected 52 tackles (23 solos) with 2.5 sacks, 3.5 stops for loss and four pressures. His heads-up performance
saw him recover four fumbles, advancing one for a touchdown, as he also intercepted a pass, deflected another and
blocked a field goal.

Alualu was again the recipient of the Brick Muller Award as a junior. He delivered 62 tackles (21 solos) in 2008, as he
finished second on the team with six sacks and eleven stops behind the line of scrimmage. He generated eight pressures,
caused two fumbles and broke up a pair of passes from the right defensive end position.

As a senior, Alualu was named to the All-Pac 10 Conference first-team, spending his final campaign at left defensive end.
He ranked third on the squad with 60 tackles (27) while also leading the Bears and ranking sixth in the league with a
career-high 7.5 sacks. He also paced the defense with ten stops for loss, adding four pressures, three deflected passes
and a pair of forced fumbles.

GENO ATKINS
Defensive Tackle/End
University of Georgia Bulldogs
#56
6:01.3-293
Pembroke Pines, Florida
St. Thomas Aquinas High School

OVERVIEW
The powerful and versatile lineman was part of the Bulldogs’ defensive tackle rotation that featured Atkins, Jeff Owens
and Kade Weston. Alternating the trio assured Georgia of having a “fresh” body on the field, but in goalline situations,
Atkins shifted outside to defensive end, so UGA would feature its strongest linemen. Because of that rotation, Atkins
started 23 times during his career, having his string of 21 consecutive starts snapped vs. Arizona State in 2009. In 11 of
his Bulldogs starting assignments, Atkins was part of a unit that held the opposition to under 100 yards. In his final three
seasons, Georgia allowed an average of just 109.92 yards rushing per game in 2007; 122.31 yards in 2008; and 126.15
yards in 2009.
th
Atkins was a standout defensive end at St. Thomas Aquinas High School, being ranked 24 in the nation at that position
by Rivals.com and 36th overall on that recruiting service’s Florida Top 100 list. The Class 5-A All-State selection was
named Florida 5-A Defensive Player of the Year as a senior. He was also named first-team All-County by the Sun-
Sentinel and the Miami Herald. He was part of the Class AAAAA state runner-up team in 2004 and 2005, which finished
the 2005 season ranked tenth in the nation by USA Today.

Atkins led his team with 49 tackles, including 18.5 for a loss, 68 assists, 7.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, nine QB
pressures and two recovered fumbles as a senior. He registered 50 solo tackles, 20 assists, 12 stops for loss, one INT
and four recovered fumbles playing mostly linebacker as a junior. He also threw the shot put for the track team.

Atkins enrolled early at Georgia in 2006, in time to participate in spring drills. He was listed third on the depth chart at right
defensive tackle, coming up with nine tackles and an assisted sack in eleven contests as a true freshman. He would earn
team Newcomer of the Year honors.

As a sophomore, Atkins started seven of 13 games at right tackle. He led the team with 15 stops behind the line of
scrimmage, as his 7.5 sacks ranked second on the squad. He posted 41 tackles (30 solos) as the team ranked 14th in the
nation in total defense (323.23 ypg). Named the team’s Most Improved Defensive Tackle, he also garnered first-team All-
Southeastern Conference accolades.

In 2008, Atkins filled the leadership void created when Jeff Owens went down in the season opener with an injury. He
responded with 34 tackles, four pressures and 7.5 tackles for loss. Georgia would allow opponents to average 312.0
yards per game in total defense. He received Academic All-SEC first-team and All-SEC third-team honors.

After starting the first three games of the 2009 season, Atkins contributed as a reserve at both tackle positions while also
seeing time at right defensive end. He totaled 36 tackles (22 solos) with 3.0 sacks in his final campaign. He registered
10.5 stops for loss, causing and recovering a fumble. Atkins was named All-SEC second team.

KEVIN BASPED
Defensive End
University of Nevada, Reno Wolf Pack
#99
6:05.6-240
Sacramento, California
Florin High School

OVERVIEW
An impressive athlete who is still developing physically, Basped could be a nice fit as an outside linebacker in a 3-4
defensive alignment thanks to his quickness and ability to easily close the edge as a blitzer or slip back fluidly in pass
coverage.

The arrival of head coach Nigel Burton to run Nevada’s defense in 2008 transformed Basped, who has cat-like quickness,
into a force coming off the edge. Teaming with defensive end Dontay Moch, the duo immediately began to wreak havoc
on the way to becoming a dominant pass rushing tandem in the Western Athletic Conference.

At Florin High School, Basped was a two-way standout at defensive end and tight end. As a senior, he finished second in
the Sacramento-San Joaquin section with 18.0 sacks. He recorded 101 total tackles (57 solo), forcing four fumbles and
recovering three others. He added 15 receptions for 259 yards (17.27 avg.) on offense.

The underrated high school player was given a two-star rating from Rivals.com and Scout.com. He chose to attend
Nevada over offers from Arizona State, Boise State, and Idaho. He would spend the 2006 season red-shirting, as he
shuttled between defensive end and linebacker while competing on the scout team.

In 2007, Basped saw action in 13 games including five starts. He recorded 50 tackles (22 solo) with two forced fumbles
and one fumble recovery. He tied for second on the team and sixth in the Western Athletic Conference with 11.5 tackles
for loss, and his four sacks for a loss of 26 yards also ranked second on the team.

Coach Nigel Burton took over as Nevada's defensive coordinator and instituted a 4–3 scheme. The new system relied on
the speed of Basped and fellow defensive lineman Moch to penetrate from the edge. The sophomore saw action in all
thirteen games, emerging as a pass rushing force while earning first-team All-WAC honors. He racked up 50 tackles (35
solos) with three forced fumbles and three pass deflections.

Basped registered 18.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage for combined losses of 82 yards and ranked 17th nationally
with 1.42 tackles for loss per game. He also tied for 21st nationally with 0.77 sacks per game, as he ranked second on the
team with 10.0 sacks for losses of 63 yards. His tackle for loss total set a school record, breaking the previous mark of
17.5 set by Ezra Butler in 2006, and his sack total also ranked fifth on the Wolf Pack’s all-time record list.

Basped returned with high expectations as a junior after being named to the preseason watch lists for the Bronko
Nagurski Trophy, given to the nation’s top defensive player, and the Lombardi Award, given to the nation’s top lineman.
He did not disappoint, as starting 10 of the 12 games he played in.

The right defensive end registered 32 tackles (13 solos) with 9.5 sacks and 12.5 tackles for loss. He ranked first in the
WAC and tied for 21st nationally with 0.79 sacks per game, an improvement from his previous season. His sack total also
tied J.J. Milan (2006) for fifth on the school’s single-season record list. His average of 1.04 tackles for loss per game
ranked third in the conference.

Gilbert, Arizona
Mesquite High School

OVERVIEW
The talented senior recently concluded his fourth season as a starter, starting 45 of the 46 games in his productive career.
A relentless pass rusher, he registered 23.0 quarterback sacks, 55.0 stops behind the line of scrimmage and 46 QB
pressures for South Dakota State. Eleven of his pressures caused interceptions, while two others produced fumbles and
two resulted in safeties. He came up with 21 turnovers on the field, as the Jackrabbits converted 13 of them into scores.

But, there is much more to Batten’s game that just getting to the quarterback. Few defensive linemen can match his pass
coverage ability. With his superb quickness and change of direction agility, he prevented receivers from getting to 117-of-
142 passes targeted into his area (17.61 pass completion percentage). The opposition managed just 167 yards on the 25
receptions made vs. the weak-side defensive end, an average of 6.68 yards per pass completion and 1.18 yards per pass
attempt (latter figure is the lowest for any active FCS player).

The well-rounded Batten was also a dominant force vs. the run. He registered 255 plays vs. the ground game, holding the
opposing ball carriers to only 217 yards, an average of 0.85 yards per rushing attempt. He produced 69 total tackles for
loss (solos/assists) while stopping runners at the line of scrimmage for no gain 47 times. Just 23 of those 255 running
plays he was involved in resulted in first downs for the opposition (8.90 percent).

Batten delivered 51 third-down stops and one more on fourth-down in passing situations. Against the ground attack, he
collected 33 third-down tackles, adding eight more on fourth-down activity, as he kept the opposition out of the end zone
on a total 90 possessions by making the final play from scrimmage on those drives.

At Mesquite High School, Batten excelled on the football field as a defensive end and tight end. He earned All-Conference
and All-Fiesta League Class 5A first-team accolades, in addition to receiving All-State honorable mention. As a senior, he
recorded 144 tackles with 7.0 sacks. On offense, he scored four times on nine receptions for 222 yards, as he led the
league with a receiving average of 24.67 yards. He also carried five times for 57 yards (11.4 avg) and registered 55
knockdown blocks.

Batten enrolled at South Dakota State in 2005. He entered fall camp listed third on the depth chart at weak-side defensive
end. By the time the season opener rolled around, Batten was in the starting lineup for 10 of 11 games that year.

He was a member of The Gridiron Report’s Division 1-AA Freshman All-American third-team and their Freshman All-
Great West Football Conference first-team squads. Batten ranked eighth on the team with 46 tackles (15 solos), as he
finished third on the unit with nine stops for loss that included 1.5 sacks. He added four pressures and also recovered a
fumble. Opponents averaged 154.6 yards per game rushing vs. the Jackrabbits, but vs. Batten, the defensive end allowed
just 55 yards on 46 carries (1.2 ypc) into his area.

Batten was an All-American honorable mention and All-Great West Football Conference first-team pick, as he totaled 67
tackles (25 solos) with 4.5 sacks, finishing second on the squad with 12 stops behind the line of scrimmage to go with six
pressures. He recovered two fumbles, caused another and broke up two passes.

The Jackrabbits gave up 176.2 yards per game on the ground that year, but against Batten, the opposition registered 54
yards on 65 carries (0.83 ypc). The defensive end made eight third-down stops and three more on fourth-down vs. the run
and against the pass, teams would complete only 19.35 percent of the passes thrown into his area (6-of-31) for 37 yards.

As a junior, Batten was a second-team All-American choice by The NFL Draft Report, receiving national honorable
mention from College Sporting News. He recorded a career-high 75 tackles (36 solos), the fourth-best total on the team,
as the Doug Miller Award recipient (team’s defensive MVP) was also a first-team All-Missouri Valley Conference selection.
He led the squad with eight sacks and ranked second in the conference with 16.0 stops for loss, adding 11 pressures, two
forced fumbles and an interception.

Against the run, Batten made 71 plays, as the opposition totaled 79 yards (1.11 ypc) on the ground. In pass coverage, he
allowed just seven of 43 passes into his area to be completed (16.28 percent) for 64 yards, an average of 1.19 yards per
pass attempt, the lowest total of any defensive player in the FCS ranks for 2008.
Batten continued his stellar performances into the 2009 season. The Buck Buchanan Award finalist (given to the nation’s
top defensive player in the FCS ranks), All-American and Missouri Valley Football Conference co-Defensive Player of the
Year finished his final campaign with a career-high 86 tackles (39 solos), leading the league while ranking eighth in the
nation with 18.0 stops for losses of 91 yards. His nine sacks ranked second in the MVFC, as he led all Football
Championship Subdivision defenders with 25 quarterback pressures while starting all twelve games.

Defensive End/Tackle
Arkansas State University Red Wolves
#98
6:05.2-285
Tupelo, Mississippi
Tupelo High School

OVERVIEW
Carrington, a four-year starter, has made an impact chasing down quarterbacks and ball carriers since stepping into the
lineup as a freshman. He closed out his career as the Sun Belt Conference’s fourth all-time leader in sacks (21.5), which
also ranks second in school annals. He placed sixth on the Sun Belt’s season-record chart with 10.5 sacks in 2008
(fourth-best in ASU history), leading to him being named the conference’s Defensive Player of the Year that campaign.

The pass rush specialist closed out his career in fine fashion. He tied the school and conference game records with 4.0
sacks, five tackles behind the line of scrimmage and a forced fumble that he recovered and returned 27 yards for a
touchdown vs. Western Kentucky in the 2009 season finale.

His stellar performances during his last two seasons with the Red Wolves earned him an invitation to the prestigious
Senior Bowl. The defensive end became just the sixth player in school history to compete in that all-star game and the
first one since quarterback Gene Bradley suited up for the 1980 contest.

Carrington was a standout down lineman at Tupelo High School. He led his team to the quarterfinals of the state playoffs
as a senior, recording 84 tackles, six sacks and three forced fumbles. The All-Region selection and recipient of the
Coach’s Award added team MVP and Daily Journal All-State first-team honors in 2004.

Carrington enrolled at Arkansas State in 2005, desiring to remain close to home and his infant son. He turned down
scholarship offers from several major colleges, including Louisiana State, Louisiana Tech and Mississippi to join the ASU
program. He would spend the 2005 season performing on the scout team as a red-shirt.

In 2006, Carrington started six of eight games before a leg injury sidelined him late in the season. Lining up at right
defensive end, he produced 14 tackles (9 solos) with a sack and two stops for losses. He also caused a fumble.

Carrington shifted to left defensive end, earning All-Sun Belt Conference honorable mention in 2007. He was in on 38
tackles (20 solos), coming up with one sack among his five stops behind the line of scrimmage. He also broke up two
passes.

As a junior, Carrington was named All-American second-team, All-Sun Belt Conference first-team and league Defensive
Player of the Year. In addition to his left end duties, he was also the in-line blocker on field goals and extra points. He
totaled 52 tackles (36 solos), a career-best. Carrington placed fourth on the Red Wolves’ season-record chart with 10.5
sacks, which ranked 14th in the nation. His 19 stops for loss led the team and Sun Belt Conference, ranking seventh in
the nation. He also blocked a kick, picked off a pass, deflected two others and caused one fumble.

As a senior, Carrington was again chosen to the All-SBC first-team. In addition to his excellent performance in the season
finale vs. Western Kentucky, he was credited with 41 tackles (28 solos), as he caused a fumble and blocked an extra
point attempt. Carrington’s nine sacks tied for the conference title and placed 25th nationally. He also had 14.5 tackles
behind the line of scrimmage, ranking 31st in the nation in that category with an average of 1.21 per game.

season-record chart, surpassed by Lynn Rowland (14.0 in 1989), Neloms (11.0 in 1985) and Carter Ray Crawford (11.0 in

TERRENCE CODY
Nose Guard/Defensive Tackle
University of Alabama Crimson Tide
#62
6:03.5-354
Fort Myers, Florida
Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College
Riverdale High School

OVERVIEW
With the re-emergence of the 3-4 defense in the NFL, Cody’s combination of size and skills should make him a valuable
contributor. The run stuffer has been favorably compared to some of the league’s greats that occupied that position in
recent years.

Despite his massive frame, Cody has shown the nimble feet and change of direction skills to chase down ball carriers on
the edge. But it is his dominance in the middle of the line, his ability to occupy multiple blockers that has seen the Crimson
Tide’s defense rank with the nation’s elite since the former Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College product joined the
Alabama program in 2008.

Prior to his arrival in a Crimson Tide uniform, the Alabama senior graduating class (year of 2007) had allowed an average
of 127.32 yards rushing, 287.36 yards in total defense and 17.06 points scored per game vs. their defensive unit (2004-
07). With Cody manning the nose guard position, the opposition has averaged just 73.25 yards on the ground, 243.96
total yards and 12.25 points per game.

With the junior college prospect taking on multiple blockers, the Tide have finished second in rush defense during both of
his seasons (allowed 77.92 yards per game in 2009 and 74.14 yards in 2008). The opposition gained just 241.69 yards of
total offense per game (second lowest total in the nation) in 2009 and 263.5 yards in 2008 (tied for third in the nation).

A recent study by ESPN found that Cody was double and triple-teamed on 63.6 percent of his plays since joining the
Crimson Tide. Those are impressive numbers for a player with a brief collegiate football career.

Cody only lettered in football as a freshman and senior at Riverdale High School. He received scholarship offers from
Miami and South Florida, but enrolled at Mississippi Gulf Coast College to improve academically.

At Riverdale, Cody started at defensive tackle, but was also an imposing figure as a tight end. Weighing close to 280
pounds and standing 6-2, he earned the nickname “Big Tee” while playing for head coach Scott Jones as a freshman.

By the time he returned to the prep gridiron as a senior, he had grown to 365 pounds. Cody displayed extraordinary
athleticism. In 2005, he recorded 74 tackles (45 solos), caused two fumbles, recovered another and blocked a field goal.
On offense, the Class 3A All-District XIII choice scored twice on nine carries and also had a six-yard touchdown grab.

Cody also lettered in basketball for the Riverdale High Raiders. As a senior on the 2005-06 Riverdale squad, he averaged
9.7 points per game, connecting on 57 field goals for the District XIII squad that finished 7-17 for coach Herb Brown.

Cody enrolled at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in 2006. He started as a freshman and sophomore at nose
guard, recording 48 tackles with 2.5 sacks and an interception in his first college season. In 2007, he added 31 tackles
and 3.5 sacks while anchoring a Bulldog defense that ranked led the state in rushing defense and total defense.
Mississippi Gulf Coast finished the season with a 12–0 season record and a NJCAA Co-National Championship.

The Alabama Crimson Tide coaching staff were amazed by the athletic ability of a player his teammates would soon
nickname “Mount” Cody.

During his first scrimmage in 2008 preseason camp, Cody took a large step in establishing his dominance in the trenches
when he keyed a four-play, goalline stand from the 1-yard line. "He's going to be good for us," Caldwell said right after that
practice. That prediction led to the junior to record 24 tackles (7 solos) with an assisted sack, 4.5 stops for loss, two
fumble recoveries and a forced fumble while starting twelve times as a junior. He was also used as a blocking fullback on
several occasions.

Cody received consensus first-team All-American honors, garnering accolades from the Associated Press, the American
Football Coaches Association, the Football Writers Association of America and The Sporting News. The Chuck Bednarik
Award semifinalist (nation’s best defensive player) was also a first-team All-Southeastern Conference pick by the
Associated Press, The Sporting News and the league’s coaches.
Cody was again a consensus All-American and unanimous All-Southeastern Conference first-team selection as a senior.
He was named a finalist for the Chuck Bednarik and Bronko Nagurski Awards in 2009. He started all 14 games for the
Tide, producing 28 tackles (12 solos) with six stops behind the line of scrimmage and three QB pressures. He also
blocked a pair of field goals, including one as time expired, to preserve a 12-10 win over Tennessee, earning AT&T Player
of the Week honors for that performance.

As for his stellar performance on the field, Georgia head coach Mark Richt stated, “I haven't seen anybody who's a match
for this guy (Cody) one-on-one. Nobody playing on Saturdays, or Sundays probably can contain him.” The nose guard
would close out his career by never allowing an opposing ball carrier to rush for 100 yards in a contest vs. the Tide,
spanning 26 games.

CAREER NOTES
Cody started all 26 games he played in for Alabama, as the team ranked second in the nation in rush defense (allowed
77.92 yards per game in 2009 and 74.14 yards in 2008) with him manning the nose guard position…Because he saw
constant double- and triple-team coverage, he was limited to just 52 tackles (19 solos) with 0.5 sack for minus 5 yards,
10.5 stops for losses totaling 25 yards and five quarterback pressures for the Tide, but the longest running play vs. Cody
was a 6-yard gain in the 2009 Kentucky clash…Added two fumble recoveries, a forced fumble, a pass deflection and two
blocked field goals…Made 50 plays vs. the ground game, holding opposing ball carriers to 48 yards (0.96 ypc), as those
runners managed just five first down carries, with Cody tackling them eleven times for loss (solos/assists) and six times at
the line of scrimmage for no gain…On nine passes thrown into his area, the opposition completed just three of those
attempts for minus 4 yards, twice taking down receivers for losses on those three completions.

2009 SEASON
Consensus All-American and unanimous All-SEC first-team choice, as he was also named a finalist for both the Chuck
Bednarik Award and Bronko Nagurski Trophy, given to the nation’s premier defensive player…Started all 14 games at
nose guard, leading a unit that ranked second in the nation while leading the conference in total defense (244.14 ypg),
rush defense (78.14 ypg), scoring defense (11.71 ppg) and pass efficiency defense (87.67 rating)…The Tide finished 20th
nationally in tackles for loss (7.00 pg) and 40th in sacks (2.29 spg), but Cody’s ability to dominate vs. double and triple-
team coverage allowed the rest of the defensive unit to take advantage of personnel mismatches. The Tide were able to
be multiple in formations without changing personnel, and did a very good job of disguising coverages and matching
opposing offenses shift for shift before the snap of the ball, thanks to their nose guard’s ability of occupying multiple
blockers in the trenches…Finished with 28 tackles (12 solos) with six stops for losses totaling 11 yards and three
quarterback pressures…Also deflected a pass, in addition to blocking a pair of field goals in the Tennessee clash…On
five passes targeted into his area, the opposition completed just one of those tosses for a 3-yard loss…Made 27 of his hits
vs. the ground game, holding opposing ball carriers to 34 yards (1.26 ypc), as he allowed just two first down carries while
producing two third-down hits, seven total stops for loss (solos and assists) and took down runners at the line of
scrimmage for no gain three times…Had four of his rush stops inside the red zone, including one on a goalline play…The
longest gain by a runner vs. Cody was a six-yarder in the Kentucky contest.

2008 SEASON
In his first season with the Crimson Tide, Cody was a consensus All-American and unanimous All-Southeastern
Conference first-team selection…The Chuck Bednarik Award semifinalist played a major part in the team finishing second
in the nation in rush defense (74.14 ypg), tied for third in total defense (263.5 ypg) and seventh in scoring defense (14.29
ppg)…The nose guard started 12 games, as he led a front wall that did not allow an opponent to gain over 100 yards
rushing in nine of those contests…Recorded 24 tackles (7 solos) with an assisted sack for minus 5 yards, 4.5 stops for
losses of 14 yards and two pressures…Also caused a fumble and recovered two others…Selected SEC Player of the
Week vs. Clemson…On 23 tackles vs. the ground game, he limited opposing ball carriers to 17 yards (0.74 ypc), as he
stopped runners three times at the line of scrimmage for no gain and five times for loss (solos and assists)…Also just
three first downs vs. the running game, as he produced three third-down hits and another on fourth down…On four
passes targeted into his area, the opposition completed two for a 1-yard loss.

JUNIOR COLLEGE
Cody played two seasons at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College (2006-07)…During his junior college career, he
recorded 79 tackles with six sacks and an interception…Also saw some time on offense as a blocking fullback…As a
freshman he recorded 48 tackles with 2.5 sacks and an interception…In his sophomore year, he earned NJCAA All-
American first-team honors, as he posted 31 tackles and 3.5 sacks while anchoring a Bulldog defense that led the state in
rushing defense and total defense…His squad finished that season with an 12–0 season record and a NJCAA Co-
National Championship…Cody received a three-star prospect rating by Rivals.com and was listed as the 47th-best overall
junior college player in the country by that recruiting service…He was rated 45th nationally by Super Prep in 2007.

JERMAINE CUNNINGHAM
Defensive End/Outside Linebacker
University of Florida Gators
#49
6:03.3-266
Stone Mountain, Georgia
Stephenson High School

OVERVIEW
The consummate team player, Cunningham’s consistency and calming leadership presence played a major role in the
defensive squad’s vast improvement in recent years. The three-year starter joined Carlos Dunlap in forming one of the
best pass rushing tandems in the Southeastern Conference. It was fitting that both teammates would end their careers
ranked tied for tenth in school history with 19.5 quarterback sacks.

When Cunningham was inserted into the starting lineup as a sophomore, his pursuit skills helped limit the opposition to
just 103.31 rushing yards per game.

With 10 more pounds of bulk added to his frame, the junior defensive end helped the Gators’ defense improve to fourth in
the country, allowing just 285.29 total yards per game in 2008. Florida continued its rise with Cunningham leading the
way, as the defense finished fourth in the major college ranks in 2009, giving up just 252.27 yards through their 14-game
schedule.

The Stephenson High School team captain led the squad to the state semifinals as a senior. He averaged 15 tackles per
game and registered 25 quarterback sacks that year. One of his most memorable moments came when he sealed a 6-0
victory over arch-rival Southwest DeKalb in 2005 with a pair of quarterback hurries on fourth downs in the fourth quarter.
As a junior, the linebacker registered 20 sacks.

A member of the scout team for part of the 2006 season, Cunningham played in seven contests, mostly on special teams
as a true freshman at Florida. He did see some defensive end duty vs. Central Florida, but totaled just two solo tackles
while earning his first varsity letter.

Despite measuring in at just 229 pounds, Cunningham took over the demanding right defensive end position for the
Gators in 2007. He was outweighed by at least seventy pounds vs. the opposing left offensive tackle, but still managed to
rank second on the team and 14th in the Southeastern Conference with six sacks.

Cunningham finished third on the squad with twelve stops for loss and registered 64 tackles (34 solos). He also deflected
three passes and picked off another when asked to cover in the short area aerial game.

As a junior, Cunningham started 13 games at right end. He registered 52 tackles (23 solos), ranking second on the squad
and ninth in the conference with six sacks. His ten tackles behind the line of scrimmage also placed second on a squad
that allowed only 105.43 rushing yards per game.

All four of Cunningham’s pressures in 2008 led to turnovers (three interceptions, one fumble), as he also caused four
fumbles. In pass coverage, three of his four pass break-ups came on third-down attempts.

Cunningham started 12 games in 2009, earning All-SEC second-team honors. Cunningham compiled 34 tackles (21
solos), his lowest totals as a starter. But, he finished second on the team in sacks (seven) for the third straight year, as
that total ranked tied for fourth in the SEC. He led the Gators with twelve stops behind the line of scrimmage, fifth-best in
the league. He totaled six pressures, three coming on third-down snaps and caused two fumbles while recovering
another.

CAREER NOTES
Cunningham started 38 of 45 games at Florida, registering 152 tackles (80 solos) with 19.5 sacks for minus 126 yards,
34.0 stops for losses of 162 yards and 11 quarterback pressures…Recovered one fumble and caused five
others…Returned an interception 18 yards and deflected seven passes…Tied Carlos Dunlap (2007-09) for tenth on the
school career-record list with 19.5 sacks…His 34 stops behind the line of scrimmage rank 11th in Florida annals.

2009 SEASON
All-Southeastern Conference second-team selection by the Associated Press and the league’s coaches…Member of the
Ted Hendricks Defensive End of the Year Award Watch List…Preseason candidate for the Bronko Nagurski awards…A
two-time team captain, Cunningham started twelve games, missing the season opener vs. Charleston Southern with an
ankle sprain and the Florida International clash with a shoulder sprain…Also missed some series vs. Arkansas with a
groin strain…Recorded 34 tackles and ranked second on the team with seven sacks for minus 42 yards, tied for fourth in
the SEC…His 12 stops for losses of 50 yards led the team and tied for fifth in the conference…Had six quarterback
pressures with a fumble recovery and two forced fumbles…Made 37 plays vs. the run, limiting ball carriers to three first
downs and minus 4 yards, as he delivered four third-down stops and twice prevented ball carriers from passing the line of
scrimmage.

CARLOS DUNLAP
Defensive End
University of Florida Gators
#8
6:05.6-277
North Charleston, South Carolina
Fort Dorchester High School

OVERVIEW
With Dunlap’s athletic ability, long arms and explosive quickness, many talent evaluators compare him favorably to when
Jevon Kearse entered the National Football League. Upon his arrival at Florida, he was nicknamed “Freak II” and “Baby
Freak” by Gators followers for his speed and speed rush, especially in the pass rush, after Kearse, who was known as
“The Freak” during his UF playing days.

Dunlap has excellent leaping ability that makes it tough for opposing quarterbacks to execute the short passes without
fear that the Gators defensive end’s wingspan (84 inches) won’t result in a batted ball at the line of scrimmage.

In his only year as a full-time starter, three of his six pass deflections came on third-down snaps in 2009. Opponents
managed to complete only one of 20 passes targeted into his area, with that completion coming in his final collegiate
game, a desperation pass late in the Sugar Bowl. His long reach also played a vital role on the Florida special team
coverage units, as he blocked four kicks during his first two seasons performing for those squads.

Dunlap and fellow defensive end, Jermaine Cunningham, rank 10th in school history with 19.5 quarterback sacks each.

At Fort Dorchester High School, Dunlap was an athletic defender who was rated 15th on ESPN’S Top 150 team and
ranked second among defensive ends on that squad. He also ranked first among weak side defensive ends and fifth
among all prospects according to Rivals.com. He was chosen to participate in the annual Offense-Defense All-American
game after his senior season.

During his senior year, Dunlap recorded an outstanding 105 tackles, that included 24 sacks and 35 stops for loss and. As
a junior, he collected 103 tackles, 22 stops behind the line of scrimmage, nine sacks and scored four defensive
touchdowns. He also returned kicks for his team.

Florida won a heated recruiting war for Dunlap’s services for the 2007 campaign. He was selected to the Southeastern
Conference Freshman Academic Honor Roll, seeing action in all thirteen games, primarily as a pass rusher and on
special teams. He finished the year with seven tackles (six solos), including a sack, two stops for loss and two pressures.
He registered the first of four blocked kicks for his career and broke up one pass.

Dunlap dedicated his first collegiate sack vs. South Carolina in 2007 to former high school teammate Robert Quinn, who
had a brain tumor in November of that year that nearly ended his football career. The two are still close and in contact and
Quinn has now recovered from the tumor and started for North Carolina.

Dunlap earned second-team All-SEC and Sophomore All-American honors in 2008. He led the conference with 9.5 sacks
and ranked fifth with 13.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage. He added seven pressures and caused a fumble. He also
blocked three kicks, the most by any player during coach Urban Meyer’s time at the university.

An intense off-season training program saw Dunlap grow from 240 pounds as a freshman to a rock-solid 290 pounds prior
to the opening of 2009 fall camp. With his imposing figure, he added much needed power, while also retaining his
impressive quickness.

Dunlap earned All-SEC first-team honors and was a semifinalist for the Lombardi Award as a junior. He started 12 games
at left defensive end, again leading the team with nine sacks, third-best in the conference. He finished second on the
squad with 10.5 stops for loss, adding 38 tackles (29 solos) while deflecting six passes.

“Carlos has all of the physical tools to be successful at the next level,” Meyer said. “I believe if he continues to grow and
mature he will have a very long career in the NFL. He provided matchup problems for opposing teams and was a big part
of our success during the last several years.”

CAREER NOTES
Dunlap started 14 of 40 games at Florida, recording 84 tackles (56 solos) with 19.5 sacks for minus 136 yards, 26.0 stops
for losses totaling 155 yards and eleven quarterback pressures…Caused two fumbles, recovered another and deflected
eight passes…Blocked four kicks, returning a blocked punt 12 yards…Along with teammate Jermaine Cunningham (2006-
09), they both tied for 10th on the school career-record list with 19.5 sacks…His 9.5 sacks in 2008 rank 11th on the
Gators’ season-record chart…His three blocked kicks in 2008 were the most by any Florida player during the Urban
Meyer era (2005-present).

2009 SEASON
Semifinalist for the Lombardi Award and on the Watch Lists for the Ted Hendricks Defensive End of the Year Award,
Chuck Bednarik Award and Bronko Nagurski Award…Earned All-Southeastern Conference first-team honors from the

EVERSON GRIFFEN
Defensive End
University of Southern California Trojans
#93
6:03.3-273
Avondale, Arizona
Agua Fria High School

OVERVIEW
Griffen is a powerful player who can also rush the passer. While he can pressure the quarterback with the best of them,
his value comes in his ability to be an every-down player. He has amazing athleticism and is very nimble for a player his
size, but also has the strength to hold up vs. the run.

His power and explosion off the snap makes it tough for offensive tackles to move him off the ball. He boasts a powerful
initial punch and has quick, active hands to disengage blockers and make plays.

What makes Griffen unique is his exceptional athleticism and speed off the edge that also allows him to rush the passer
on third down. In 2009, five of his seven sacks came on third downs and forced punts.

“Quickness is my strength,” Griffen noted. “I can knock away offensive linemen’s hands before they put them on me.
When it comes to making sacks, I don’t know how to explain it, because it’s the greatest feeling in the world. When you’re
coming off the edge and the quarterback doesn’t see you, it’s like a free shot to heaven.”

Griffen is the ideal every-down defensive end in a 4-3 scheme that doesn’t need to be heavily rotated. He can anchor vs.
the run or rush the passer no matter the situation. His outstanding size and strength vs. the run also displays potential for
him to play the defensive end position in a 3-4 defensive alignment. He has seen time in both formations during his
collegiate career at USC. It’s this versatility that makes him an intriguing prospect.

Griffen prepped at Agua Fria High School, where he was one of the most sought-after recruits in the country. The Super
Prep and Scout.com Player of the Year racked up 77 tackles, 16.0 sacks, and one fumble recovery on defense, and 1,251
yards with 20 touchdowns on 159 carries (7.9 ypc) on offense. He earned Parade, EA Sports, Super Prep, Prep Star,
Scout.com and Tom Lemming Prep Football report All-American honors.

Griffen also received Super Prep Elite 50, Prep Star 100, Rivals.com 100, Super Prep All-Farwest, Prep Star All-West,
Scout.com All-West, Long Beach Press-Telegram Best in the West, Orange County Register Fab 15, Tacoma News-
Tribune Western 100 and Gatorade Arizona Player of the Year honors. He was rated a five-star prospect and listed as the
top defensive end in country by Rivals.com and Scout.com.

Griffen chose to attend Southern California over offers from many other schools, including Notre Dame and Michigan. He
enrolled in 2007, playing in 12 games with two starts, becoming the first true freshman to start a season-opener on the
defensive line since Tim Ryan in 1986. He had a stellar first year as he racked up 21 tackles and 5.5 sacks, two forced
fumbles, a fumble recovery and two pass deflections.

He was named to the 2007 The Sporting News, Football Writers Association, Rivals.com, Scout.com and College Football
News Freshman All-American teams. Griffen was also named The Sporting News Pac-10 Defensive Freshman of the
Year and was an All-Pac-10 Conference honorable mention.

As a sophomore in 2008, Griffen played in 12 games, starting the first three, as he recorded 18 tackles, including six for
losses, with 4.5 sacks. He recorded sacks vs. Ohio State, Oregon, Arizona State, Arizona, and California, as a key piece
to a defense that ranked second nationally allowing, just 221.77 total yards of offense per game.

Griffen started 12 games in 2009. He earned a second-team All-Pac-10 Conference honors, as he racked up 45 tackles
with 8.5 tackles behind the line of scrimmage, seven sacks, one forced fumble, a fumble recovery, one pass breakup, and
a quarterback pressure.

The junior’s best game of the year came in a win vs. Notre Dame, when he registered four tackles, two sacks, and one
quarterback hurry. The defensive end finished the season tied for 48th nationally with an average of .58 sacks per game.

Former USC head coach Pete Carroll praised Griffen after the Notre Dame game, stating, “He’s now playing the best that
he’s ever played. He’s utilizing his great speed and explosiveness. He looks to be a real factor. He’s fast, really fast at
getting to the quarterback.”

GREG HARDY
Defensive End
University of Mississippi Rebels
#86
6:04.0-281
Millington, Tennessee
Briarcrest Christian School

OVERVIEW
Few 2010 NFL Draft prospects are blessed with the athleticism and ability to penetrate the backfield like Greg Hardy.

He earned Freshman All-American distinction his first year at Mississippi and then garnered All-American honors as a
sophomore and again his junior year. In each of his four seasons, he either led or tied for the lead in quarterback sacks
among his Rebels teammates. In 2007, he captured the opposing passer ten times and made 18.5 stops behind the line
of scrimmage. The following year he delivered 8.5 more sacks. In 40 games at Ole Miss, Hardy delivered 26.5 sacks to go
with 39.5 stops for loss.

This is a pure athlete whose talents are obvious. Each of his three receptions was good for touchdowns during his brief
action as a 255-pound wide receiver during his first two seasons at Mississippi. Further evidence of his untapped athletic
talent came after the 2006 football season, when Hardy suited up for 15 games with the Ole Miss basketball team.

At Briarcest Christian School, Hardy was named to the Super Prep All-Dixie team. The All-State pick was rated the fifth-
best prospect in the state of Tennessee by Super Prep, ranking eighth by Scout.com and 12th by Rivals.com. Scout.com
rated the youngster as the 44th-best defensive end in the nation. He added All-Metro honors from the Commercial Appeal
and was a member of that news service’s Shelby-Metro Most Wanted list.

Hardy helped lead his team to the state championship in 2004. As a senior, he recorded 65 tackles, including 12 for loss
and six quarterback sacks. He also caught 48 passes for 268 yards. In addition to earning two letters in football, he added
two more each in basketball and track. As a junior, he received All-State honorable mention in basketball.

Hardy earned Freshman All-American honors in 2006, going on to start nine games at left defensive end. He also saw
some action as a situational receiver, turning his first career reception into a 23-yard score vs. Mississippi State. On the
opposite side of the ball, he had three sacks, five stops for loss and 49 tackles (28 solos). He also paced the team with
four forced fumbles, recovering two of those miscues.

Hardy led the team in sacks (10.0) and tackles for loss (18.0), posting 64 hits (40 solos) in 10 games that included four
starting assignments at right defensive end. He continued to cause problems in opposing backfields, causing fumbles on
three of his sacks. He also saw brief action on offense, as both of his receptions were good for touchdowns.

As a sophomore, he again led the team with 8.5 sacks and had 9.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage. He picked off a
pass for a 22-yard return vs. Louisiana-Monroe, finishing with 18 tackles (11 solos), as he again received All-American
honors.

With nine games of reserve duty in 2009 due to several injuries, he closed out his final season with 16 tackles, but for the
fourth season, he led the Rebels with 5.0 sacks.

LAMARR HOUSTON
Defensive Tackle/End
University of Texas Longhorns
#33
6:02.6-305
Colorado Springs, Colorado
Doherty High School

OVERVIEW
During his Longhorn career, Houston developed from a cat-quick, pass rushing defensive end into one of the more
dominant, physical interior defenders, consistently winning battles at the point of attack. With the hand technique and spin
moves he developed playing on the edge, few offensive guards can mirror his moves when Houston is pursuing ball
carriers working down the line.

The three-time member of the University of Texas’ Athletics Director's Honor Roll, Houston is an instinctive pass rusher
who plays with a wide base vs. the run, having a good feel for locating the ball quickly. His field vision and intelligence has
allowed the Longhorns staff to stunt him often, as he has good knowledge for handling assignments in a variety of roles.

Houston has also been utilized on special teams and as a fullback to root out linebackers in short yardage and goalline
situations. In 50 games at Texas, he started 33 times, playing with the first unit as a “power” end, “quick” end and right
defensive tackle.

Houston earned Parade and EA Sports All-American honors as a linebacker at Doherty High School, where he also
excelled as a running back. The two-time All-State selection was named the Rocky Mountain News Colorado Defensive
Player of the Year and Gatorade Player of the Year for Colorado as a senior.

One of only three juniors chosen to the All-State squad, he added first-team All-Conference, second-team All-Area and
first-team All-City honors as a sophomore while playing fullback and defensive end. He would finish his career with 3,325
yards rushing and 49 touchdowns to go along with 239 tackles and 13 sacks in three seasons. He posted over 100
tackles in each of his final two prep campaigns and averaged 8.1 yards per carry (411 attempts) for his career.

As a senior, Houston rushed for 1,770 yards and 28 touchdowns on 230 carries (7.7 ypc). He also made 101 tackles,
including 19 stops for loss, eight sacks, an interception and three fumble recoveries. His top performance came when he
rushed for 339 yards and four touchdowns on 33 carries in a win over Gateway in 2005.

The first-team All-Conference linebacker and fullback rushed for 779 yards and 11 scores on 70 attempts (11.1 ypc) and
tallied 100 tackles, two sacks and three fumble recoveries during his junior season. He carried 111 times for 776 yards
(7.0 ypc) and 10 touchdowns to go along with 38 tackles and three sacks as a sophomore. He also played fullback and
middle linebacker as a freshman.

In addition to football, Houston lettered three times in basketball as a power forward. He also competed in the discus, shot
put and 100-meter hurdles in track and field, placing first in the city and sixth in the state in the discus as a senior with a
throw of 163-0.

Houston was inserted into the mix at “power” (right) defensive end as a true freshman. In 11 games, he totaled eight
tackles (four solos) and registered a sack, two stops for loss and a pair of pressures.

As a sophomore, he shifted to “quick” (left) defensive end, starting 11 contests as he earned All-Big Twelve Conference
honorable mention. Named UT’s Outstanding Defensive End, he collected 45 tackles (20 solos) and had 4.5 sacks among
his 10.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage. He added eight pressures, deflected three passes and even tried his hand as
a kickoff returner, with a 27-yard runback vs. Arizona State.

Houston played most of his junior season with a foot injury. He shifted to right defensive tackle, as the then 279-pounder
started eight games. He was suspended for the Texas-El Paso contest due to an off-field issue, resulting in him having a
trying 2008 season. He was a second-team Academic All-Big Twelve Conference pick, as he totaled 23 tackles (16 solos)
with six stops for loss and seven pressures.

Houston has been active in UT's community service program. He is part of a group of Longhorns that regularly visits
patients at the Austin Children's Hospital and participates in activities for Mothers vs. Drunk Driving. He also spoke during
a program called “Smart Girls” that builds self-esteem in young girls.
Houston established himself as one of college football’s dominant interior lineman. Now pushing a rock-solid 300 pounds,
the All-Big Twelve Conference first-team pick led a unit that ranked first in the nation vs. the run (72.36 ypg) in 2009. He
recorded a career-best 60 tackles (40 solos), as he had 7.0 sacks and ranked sixth in the league with 17.0 stops behind
the line of scrimmage.

LINVAL JOSEPH
Nose Guard/Defensive Tackle
East Carolina University Pirates
#97
6:04.4-328
Gainesville, Florida
Sante Fe High School

OVERVIEW
The metamorphosis of Joseph from his freshman year to his junior season has been remarkable. Thanks to his dedication
to off-season conditioning, he is one of the strongest players in college football.

His dominance in the trenches as a sophomore saw the Pirates lead Conference USA in total defense (333.0 ypg) and
scoring defense (21.07 ppg) that season.

Joseph continued to plug the interior rush lanes and tie up multiple blockers while playing like a man possessed as a
junior. The Pirates would hold their opponents to an average of 120.29 yards per game rushing in 2009. Joseph had a
hand in making 57 of his plays vs. the running attack, holding those ball carriers to 45 yards (0.79 ypc) and no
touchdowns, dropping 13 runners for a loss while taking down five more for no gain at the line of scrimmage.

Five of his tackles for loss killed scoring drives, all coming on goalline stands. He also posted one fourth-down and four
third-down tackles vs. the run. His performance last season earned him the team’s “Distinction of Attitude, Effort and
Leadership" Award, for his role in helping ECU make their third-straight postseason bowl visit.

At Sante Fe High School, Joseph lettered four times for the Raiders. He was a two-time All-State Class AAA selection,
adding All-Region honors as a senior. He received a three-star rating from Rivals.com, as that recruiting service ranked
him 44th among the nation’s defensive tackles. Rivals.com even featured him in their 2007 recruiting yearbook.

Joseph also excelled as a weight man for the school’s track team. He lettered three times in the sport, helping the team
advance to the state finals, as he competed in the shot put and discus events. A three-time member of Sante Fe’s weight
lifting team, he captured the Florida State Weightlifting Championship as a junior with a 415-pound bench press and a
320-pound clean jerk.

Joseph signed with East Carolina in February, 2007. He appeared in 13 games, starting four contests while sharing right
defensive tackle duties with junior Khalif Mitchell. He was named to the Freshman All-Conference USA team after posting
40 tackles that included 8.5 stops for loss, five pressures and two fumble recoveries.

As a sophomore, Joseph played in 14 games at nose guard, taking over the position full-time during the final five games.
He delivered eight tackles behind the line of scrimmage among his 43 tackles (22 solos) that included 2.5 sacks. He also
used his impressive wing span and leaping ability to block a pair of kicks.

Joseph earned All-American third-team and All-Conference USA first-team honors in 2009. Back at right defensive tackle,
he registered a career-best 60 tackles (22 solos), coming up with three sacks. His 13 stops for loss led the team and
ranked sixth in the league. He also collected fourteen QB pressures, caused two fumbles and blocked a kick, in addition
to scoring on a one-yard rushing attempt.

AUSTEN LANE
Defensive End
Murray State University Racers
#97
6:06.2-272
Iola, Wisconsin
Iola-Sandinavia High School

OVERVIEW
The once 220-pound Wisconsin native is the product of Murray State’s offseason program, having added close to 50
pounds of bulk and muscle to his frame since arriving on campus as a freshman. As he continued to mature physically, he
began to show flashes of brilliance as a pass rusher, coming into his own during a banner junior campaign.

Lane went on to lead the Ohio Valley Conference and rank fourth in the NCAA FCS in both sacks and tackles behind the
line of scrimmage in 2008. His 12.0 sacks and 22.0 stops for loss established school season-records. With 11.0 sacks in
2009, he became the first player in club history with 10 or more sacks twice in a career.

Lane also tied the Racers game record with 3.5 sacks in the 2008 Southeast Missouri State clash. He holds the school
and Ohio Valley Conference all-time records with 29.0 sacks and 55.0 stops behind the line of scrimmage. His average of
0.6744 sacks per game set the Ohio Valley Conference all-time record and rank tenth in NCAA FCS history. His average
of 1.279 tackles for loss per game also established the OVC career-record and rank 16th in FCS annals.

Lane finished the season fourth in the nation as a senior while leading the Ohio Valley Conference with an average of 1.1
quarterback sacks per game. He also ranked third nationally while leading the OVC with an average of 1.86 tackles for
loss per game.

Murray State greatly benefited from Lane’s ability to attack the opposing backfield. They finished second in the league and
33rd in the nation with an average of 2.25 quarterback sacks per game in 2008, compared to 1.55 sacks per game in
2007 (MSU placed 83rd in the nation and sixth in the OVC that year).
th
The Racers also placed 24th nationally with an average of 6.92 tackles for loss per game, an improvement from their 99
place ranking in 2007 (5.09 tpg). With Lane dominating the trenches, Murray State’s defense finished second in the
conference, allowing just 328.42 yards per game in 2008 after giving up an average of 446.36 yards per game during his
sophomore season.

Lane was a two-sport standout at Iola-Sandinavia High School, where he played on both sides of the ball for the football
team. As a senior, he registered 14.5 sacks as a defensive end and also caught 31 passes for 717 yards (23.1 avg) and
13 TDs as a wide receiver.

That effort earned Lane All-Conference and All-Region offensive and defensive honors. He was also named All-State first-
team on defense and was an honorable mention offensive choice. That year, he also recorded 134 tackles (77 solos), as
he recovered four fumbles and blocked five kicks during his final campaign. He added two letters for the Thunderbirds’
basketball team, earning second-team All-Conference accolades in 2004-05.

Lane started nine of the ten games he appeared in as a freshman, lining up at right defensive end. He recorded 34 tackles
(11 solos) with 2.5 sacks and also blocked a pair of extra point attempts.

As a sophomore, Lane, started 10 games, finishing sixth on the team with 48 tackles (28 solos). His 3.5 sacks and 8.5
stops behind the line of scrimmage ranked second among Racers defenders, as he again used his excellent leaping
ability to excel on special teams, blocking the third kick of his career.

Lane added more than 20 pounds of bulk before reporting to fall camp in 2008. The 250-pounder earned All-American
and All-Ohio Valley Conference honors for the first time in his career. He set school game and season-records for sacks,
finishing the campaign fourth in the nation after dropping quarterbacks 12 times for minus 108 yards.

Lane also set the MSU annual record with 22.0 stops behind the line of scrimmage. He recovered three fumbles, caused
two others and blocked the fourth kick during his time with the Racers. He forced seven turnovers by the opposition and
also registered 21 stops on third-down plays and three more on fourth-down.

In his final campaign, Lane was named an All-American first-team selection. He is regarded as the best defensive
prospect in the NCAA FCS ranks and was named the preseason favorite to garner FCS National Defensive Player of the
Year honors.
The Buck Buchanan Award nominee recorded a career-high 65 tackles (33 solos) in 2009. He posted 11.0 sacks with
20.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage while recording 19 quarterback pressures. He is tied for fifth in the FCS ranks
with four forced fumbles and broke up two passes while returning an interception 21 yards for a touch-down.

CAREER NOTES
In 43 games at Murray State, Lane started 40 contests, recording 211 tackles (103 solos)… His 29.0 sacks for minus 200

BRANDON LANG
Defensive End
Troy State University Trojans
#91
6:03.6-266
Tucker, Georgia
Hargrave Military Academy
Tucker High School

OVERVIEW
Lang teamed up with fellow defensive end Cameron Sheffield to give Troy one of the most formidable pass rushing
tandems in college football. During the past two seasons, Lang and Sheffield combined for 31.5 sacks for minus 217
yards in 26 games, 53 tackles for losses totaling 276 yards, nine fumbles and 114 quarterback pressures.

In fact, Lang chased most of that duo’s records, ranking behind that pair on the school career-record list with 38 stops for
loss and 71 pressures. Lang ranks 10th in school annals with 23.5 sacks, but his lost yardage total of 170 is second only
to DeMarcus Ware’s 198 on Troy’s all-time record chart. His minus 215 yards on his 38 tackles for loss is also second in
school history behind Ware’s 252.

During his three-year career at Tucker High School, he posted 71.0 sacks to go with 122 tackles for loss and 290 total
tackles. He also recovered 18 fumbles. As an offensive player, he caught 50 passes for 1,220 yards and 12 touchdowns
while competing as a rush end and tight end.

Lang guided his team to a 34-4 record over three seasons, as he was twice named both first-team All-State by the Atlanta
Journal-Constitution and All-Region. He was named to the DeKalb County Super 11, and was ranked as the 15th-best
prospect in the state by the AJC. The Super Prep All-American was selected to play in the Georgia North-South All-Star
game and nominated to play in the Army All-American Bowl. He also won the DAR Award.

During his senior season, Lang recorded 145 tackles, including a state record 35 sacks and 61 tackles for loss. In addition
to playing tight end and defensive end, he also saw playing time as a linebacker, quarterback, fullback, flanker and safety
during his prep career. He also lettered one season in baseball.

Lang spent the 2004 season improving his academics while attending Hargrave Military Academy. Competing again as a
defensive end and tight end, he recorded 21 catches for 498 yards and six TDs to go with 15 tackles. He was rated the
country’s10th-best prep prospect by Rivals.com. The following year, he attended classes at a junior college and at Troy.

Given his opportunity to play college ball, Lang did not disappoint. Playing in 13 games as a reserve right defensive end,
he tied for second on the squad with 4.5 sacks and eight stops for loss. He also posted 26 tackles (20 solos), nine
quarterback pressures and a forced fumble.

Lang moved into the starting lineup at the beginning of the 2007 campaign. He lined up at left end for the first three
contests, recording four solo tackles.

Lang began to stake claim as one of college football’s elite pass rushers in 2008. He registered 69 tackles (44 solos) while
starting all 13 games at left end. His 28 QB pressures rank fifth on the school season-record list, as he led the Sun Belt
Conference and tied for 12th nationally with 10.5 sacks. He finished second in the league and 14th in the major college
ranks with 17.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage, as his lost yardage total of 115 yards set a Troy season-record.

The All-Sun Belt Conference first-team choice in 2009 continued to man the left end position. He finished third on the
team with a career-best 73 tackles (41 solos), leading Troy while ranking third in the conference with 8.5 sacks. He totaled
12.5 stops for loss and his 33 QB pressures were the second-highest amount by a Trojan in school annals.

GERALD MC COY
Defensive Tackle
University of Oklahoma Sooners
#93
6:04.1-295
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Southeast High School

OVERVIEW
McCoy is an athlete that works well within any system, whether it is bull rushing from the inside gaps or executing quick,
efficient spin moves to come off the edge and impact the pocket by generating an explosive backside pursuit. His lateral
agility allowed the Sooners staff to line him up in a variety of positions on the front wall.

With his long arms, body control and balance, McCoy is effective at avoiding the cut block, as few men can keep their feet
working through traffic. With a strong hand punch, he can easily split double teams or push the isolated blocker back into
the pocket. He is a patient player who rarely gets out of control or loses position. His ability to plug the rush lanes and
string plays out wide saw him put up impressive “hidden” statistics in 2009.

McCoy’s success in shutting down the opposing ground game was never more evident than in his 2009 season. The
previous year, Oklahoma allowed 367.71 yards per game, ranking 68th in the nation in total defense. With McCoy taking
on a leadership role on a team missing several offensive stars, the defense needed to step up. Following McCoy’s lead,
Oklahoma ranked eighth nationally in total defense (272.62 ypg) and seventh in scoring defense (14.54 ppg) this season.

McCoy was dominant as a run stuffer, as the Sooners limited their opponents to an average of 92.92 yards per game on
the ground, ranking second in the Big Twelve Conference and eighth in the Division I ranks. The junior defensive tackle
recorded 34 tackles in 2009, but on 20 of those plays, the runner was either tackled for a loss or brought down at the line
of scrimmage for no gain. All told, the opposition was held to minus 17 yards on running plays in McCoy’s area.

McCoy is also a strong pass rusher. Six of his 12 quarterback pressures either killed scoring drives or resulted in
turnovers. He also recorded six sacks for losses of 47 yards.

At Southeast High School, McCoy was named National Defensive Player of the Year by USA Today. The 2005 Oklahoma
Gatorade Player of the Year was named to the Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State team and chosen All-City
Athletic Conference Player of the Year.

The Super Prep All-American was rated the best player in the Midlands region by that recruiting service and ranked
second on their Elite 50 squad, along with being the top-rated defensive lineman in the nation. Super Prep also selected
him the Midlands Defensive Player of the Year during his final season. College Football News regarded McCoy as the
nation’s best defensive tackle and 10th-best overall prospect.

Prep Star rated McCoy the second-best defensive lineman in the nation, as he was also a member of their Dream Team
Top 100 squad. Scout.com and ESPN rated him the second-best prep defensive tackle in the country. He was ranked
21st overall on the 2005 ESPN150 team. Rivals.com rated McCoy the best defensive tackle in the nation and the top
prospect in the state of Oklahoma.

McCoy logged 82 tackles, 20.0 sacks and recovered nine fumbles as a senior. He added All-Area, All-State and All-Metro
honors as a junior. He finished that season with 83 tackles, including 23 stops for loss, and 20 sacks, adding one
interception (returned 48 yards for a touchdown) and two fumble recoveries. At the conclusion of his prep career, he
competed in the U.S. Army High School All-American game.

McCoy decided to stay close to home and enrolled at Oklahoma in 2005. He spent that season red-shirting, but his talent
level was obvious. He dominated in 2006 spring drills and forced the staff to scrap their plans to bring him along slowly,
handing him the right defensive tackle job. He did not relinquish that assignment throughout his 40-game career.

McCoy was a consensus Freshman All-American and named the Big Twelve Conference Freshman of the Year in 2006.
He collected only 19 tackles that season, but posted 6.5 stops for loss with two sacks. Four of his six pressures caused
interceptions and ten of his hits came on third-down plays.

As a sophomore, The Sporting News recognized McCoy as a first-team All-American and the Dallas Morning News
named him the Big Twelve Conference Defensive Player of the Year. He delivered 30 tackles in 14 games, that included
6.5 sacks, eleven stops behind the line of scrimmage and three caused interceptions on QB pressures, picking off one
ball himself while knocking down to third-down pass attempts.
The 2009 consensus All-American first-team choice was a Lombardi Award finalist as a junior. He collected a career-best
34 tackles, finishing second on the team with 6.5 sacks among his 15.5 tackles behind the line of scrimmage, adding
twelve pressures from his right defensive tackle position.

EARL MITCHELL
Defensive Tackle/End
University of Arizona Wildcats
#49
6:01.6-296
Houston, Texas
North Shore High School

OVERVIEW
A former fullback who moved to the defensive side of the ball at Arizona, Mitchell is the consummate team player. After
one year at fullback, he moved to tight end and H-back the following season. With the incorporation of the spread offense
eliminating much of those duties, he eagerly absorbed as much knowledge he could in a short time to develop into an elite
defensive tackles. With just 25 games on the defensive front, he would rank with the Pac-10 Conference’s leaders in
sacks and tackles behind the line of scrimmage in his senior season.

Mitchell is a well-built, athletic defensive tackle who uses quickness and lower body strength to disrupt the offense. His
athleticism is ideal for a 4-3 defensive alignment, as he has the power to split double teams, along with the speed and
lateral agility to execute quick spin moves to impact the backfield coming off the edge.

After switching to defensive tackle in the spring of 2008, he helped boost a unit that ranked 53rd nationally in 2007,
allowing an average of 372.17 yards per game, all the way to 24th in 2008 giving up an average of 313.00 yards.

In his two years at defensive tackle, Mitchell racked up 18 stops in the backfield for combined losses of 60 yards,
including eight sacks for losses of 42 yards. In 2009, he led all Wildcat defensive linemen in total tackles and tackles for
loss, and was second on the team in sacks. His average of 1.04 tackles for loss per game ranked seventh in the Pac-10
Conference (second among interior linemen) and 60th nationally, while his average of 0.54 quarterback sacks per game
ranked eighth in the conference (second among interior linemen) and 55th in the nation.

Mitchell prepped at North Shore High School, where as a senior, he earned first-team All-District 23-5A honors as a tight
end. The Super Prep All-Midlands and All-Southwest choice helped his team to an 11-1 season with their only loss
coming in the area playoffs. He added 5A All-Region III second-team honors, and was a member of the Dallas Morning
News State top 100. Mitchell was given a three-star rating and listed as the nation’s 10th-best fullback prospect by
Rivals.com. Scout.com also gave him a three-star rating, and listed him as the nation’s 29th-best tight end prospect.

Mitchell enrolled at Arizona in 2006 as a 250-pound freshman tight end. In his first season, he played in all 12 games with
seven starts, seeing action as both tight end and fullback. He caught nine passes for 136 yards and one touchdown. He
also carried four times in short yardage situations for seven yards. The freshman’s best game of the season came vs.
Oregon, when he grabbed two passes for 45 yards and his first career touchdown. He also registered Arizona’s lone
blocked kick of the year, a tipped punt at Louisiana State.

As a sophomore in 2007, Mitchell played in all 12 games. He started five contests and again saw action at both tight end
and H-back. He grabbed five passes for 38 yards and one touchdown. He scored his second career touchdown in the
team’s season-opener against Brigham Young.

Mitchell moved to defensive tackle in the spring of 2008. In his first season at the position, he started all 13 games and led
all Arizona linemen with 40 tackles, including 5.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage and 1.5 sacks. He earned a Pac-10
Conference honorable mention, and was a key factor in the middle for a unit that ranked 24th nationally in total defense,
allowing an average of 313.0 yards per game.

Prior to his final campaign, Arizona defensive coordinator Mark Stoops talked about Mitchell’s impact to the team, "He's
just more confident and can help with the leadership. Instead of worrying about himself, he's helping other guys and
learning how to take his game to the next level. We need him to be more of an impact player and continue to refine those
pass-rushing skills. That is where we need him to be a bigger impact player on those pass downs."

As a senior in 2009, Mitchell was named to the preseason watch list for the Lombardi Award, given annually to the college
football lineman who, in addition to outstanding performance and ability, best exemplifies the discipline of Vince Lombardi.
The defensive co-captain was tops among Arizona linemen for the second season in a row with 48 tackles.

The senior led all Wildcat defenders with 12.5 stops in the backfield, ranking seventh in the Pac-10 with an average of
1.04 tackles for loss per game. He also ranked eighth in the conference with an average of 0.54 sacks per game, totaling
6.5 stops while going on to earn second-team All-Pac-10 honors. He was also named the Pac-10’s Defensive Player of
the Week for his performance vs. Southern California.

DERRICK MORGAN
Defensive End
Georgia (Tech) Institute of Technology Yellow Jackets
#91
6:03.0-266
Coatesville, Pennsylvania
Coatesville High School

OVERVIEW
Morgan emerged as one of the most dominant pass rushers in the nation in 2009. No longer having to share the spotlight
with Michael Johnson, Darryl Richard and Vance Walker, the talented junior ably filled the leadership void up front.
Morgan is an athletic player who is equally strong at stopping the run and rushing the passer.

Starting 27 games at Georgia Tech, Morgan’s 19.5 quarterback sacks rank seventh in school history. He added 29.5
tackles behind the line of scrimmage.

He led the Atlantic Coast Conference and ranked eighth in the nation with 12.5 sacks in 2009, the fourth-best season total
by a Yellow Jacket, as his 18.5 stops for loss as a junior ranked second in the ACC, as well as tying former All-American,
Marco Coleman, for seventh on Tech’s annual record book.

Morgan was a first-team All-State selection at Coatesville High, where he earned league Defensive Player of the Year
honors. He was rated the top high school prospect in the state of Pennsylvania by both Rivals.com and Super Prep.
Rivals also rated him the sixth-best strong-side defensive end in the nation and Scout.com rated him twelfth.

As a senior, Morgan collected seven quarterback sacks, adding six more stops behind the line of scrimmage. He also
recorded 47 tackles and had two fumble recoveries as a defensive end. On offense, the running back carried 112 times
for 523 yards (4.67 ypc) and scored eight touchdowns while serving as team captain.

Morgan enrolled at Georgia Tech in 2006, where he was thrust right into the action as a true freshman. He appeared in
twelve games as a reserve defensive end, seeing action on the left and right sides. He was brought along slowly by the
old coaching staff, managing just nine tackles (4 solos) with 1.5 stops for loss and a pass break-up.

With the arrival of new head coach Paul Johnson in 2008, the staff decided it was time to give the youngster playing time
over some veterans. Morgan took over left end duties and made an instant impact.

The sophomore All-American and All-Atlantic Coast Conference honorable mention recorded 51 tackles, finishing second
on the team with seven sacks to go with 9.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage. His alertness on the field also saw him
recovered four fumbles.

Morgan simply dominated the action in the trenches in 2009, earning All-American first-team accolades while being
selected the ACC’s Defensive Player of the Year. He led the league and finished eighth nationally with 12.5 sacks and
was second in the ACC with 18.5 stops for loss.

The junior registered at least one tackle behind the line of scrimmage in 10 contests. He again wreaked havoc in the
backfield, causing two fumbles while recovering two others from his left end position.

CAREER NOTES

quarterback sacks for minus 131 yards, 29.5 stops for losses totaling 154 yards and three pressures…Recovered six

Rudolph (28.5, 1989-92), Marco Coleman (27.5, 1989-91), Eric Henderson (25.0, 2002-05), Pat Swilling (23.0, 1982-85)
and Felipe Claybrooks (20.0, 1997- 2000)…His 12.5 sacks in 2009 placed fourth on Tech’s season-record list, surpassed

MIKE NEAL
Defensive Tackle
Purdue University Boilermakers
#92
6:03.0-294
Merrillville, Indiana
Merrillville High School

OVERVIEW
After three years of patiently waiting for his opportunity, Neal showed the coaching staff why they heavily recruited him.
One of the top prep defensive ends in the nation, the once 245-pound freshman developed into a a rock-solid defensive
tackle who has been one of the bright spots on the team since moving into the lineup two years ago.

Since taking over left defensive tackle duties, Neal registered 11.0 of his 13.0 career quarterback sacks and 21.5 of the 26
tackles for loss he recorded during his Boilermaker career. By far the team’s strongest player, he commanded constant
double-team coverage on almost every snap.

Regarded by many as the strongest and most dominant defensive lineman to wear a Boilermakers uniform since Jeff
Zgonina in 1992, he holds several team weight records, boasting a 510-pound bench press, a 615-pound squat, a 385-
pound clean.

According to Purdue head coach Danny Hope, “Michael Neal can be a great player, not only at his position, but in this
league,” Hope says. “I think he'll be a premier defensive tackle, maybe the best defensive tackle that's played at Purdue
since Zgonina (the Big Ten defensive player of the year in 1992 and a 15-year NFL veteran).”

At Merrillville High School, Neal was rated the nation’s 29th-best strong-side defensive end and the sixth-best overall
prospect in the state of Indiana, according to Rivals.com. Prep Football Report rated him the 56th overall prospect in the
Midwest region while College Football News ranked him 33rd.

As a senior, Neal recorded 59 tackles, including 24 for loss and 12 sacks, with 20 pressures, six pass break-ups and one
blocked kick, earning All-State honors. He also collected 49 tackles, with four sacks, 14 stops behind the line of
scrimmage, three pass deflections and one fumble recovery as junior. In addition to football, he also lettered in basketball.

Neal enrolled at Purdue in 2005, spending his first season competing with the scout team while retaining freshman
eligibility. He used that time to develop physically, adding close to 25 pounds to his frame before his first varsity season.
Arriving in 2006 fall camp at 270 pounds, he saw limited action in nine games as a reserve defensive tackle, finishing with
nine tackles (8 solos), including one for a loss.

In 2007, Neal played an important role in the front line’s rotation. In his reserve left defensive tackle position, he notched
22 tackles. He also delivered a pair of sacks to go with 3.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage.

The junior defensive tackle claimed a starting job on the left side in 2008. With his frame now carrying 293 pounds, Neal
was too much for isolated blockers to contain. He was credited with 33 tackles (18 solos), and a third of them came in the
opposing backfields. He ranked second on the team with 5.5 sacks, the 10th-best figure in the Big Ten Conference. He
also placed third on the squad with ten stops for loss.

Neal continued to fill out his frame, which maxed out at 302 pounds during his senior year. He earned All-Big Ten
Conference honorable mention and was named Purdue’s defensive captain. He registered 35 tackles (20 solos) that
included 11.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage.

JARED ODRICK
Defensive Tackle
The Penn State University Nittany Lions
#91
6:05.0-304
Lebanon, Pennsylvania
Lebanon High School

OVERVIEW
Blessed with exceptional size, strength and toughness, Odrick emerged as a dominating force in the interior of the Penn
State defensive line his senior season. The former defensive end provided leadership and significant contributions from
the interior of the defensive line last fall, earning Big Ten Conference Defensive Lineman of the Year and Defensive
Player of the Year recognition.

Odrick’s skills and tenacity often forced the opposition to put two blockers on him, freeing up a teammate to make a play.
A physical, talented, no-nonsense player, his ability to provide an inside push was disruptive to the opposing team's
rushing and passing attacks.

In 2009, he made 43 plays in the run game, holding ball carriers to minus 24 yards, as he made 11 stops for loss, took
down eight runners at the line of scrimmage for no gain and produced eight third-down tackles to kill scoring drives. He
allowed just four carries for first downs vs. the running game.

The unquestioned leader of the Penn State defense, he led a unit that allowed opponents to gain over 100 yards just
seven times in his last 26 contests. Against the pass, three of his four quarterback pressures came on third-down snaps,
with two causing interceptions. He also captured quarterbacks in the backfield seven times.

Odrick’s passionate and dedicated efforts in the weight room and conditioning have helped him improve his speed and
strength and evolve into a physically imposing presence that can make plays all over the field. Fifteen of his 43 tackles as
a senior came in long pursuit. He is a strong, quick and instinctive athlete with tremendous physical attributes that should
merit early draft round consideration.

Odrick was a Parade and U.S. Army All-American selection as a senior at Lebanon High School. He was rated the sixth-
best defensive tackle in the nation by Scout.com. He also added first-team All-State honors and was a Big 33 Classic
selection. After his final year, he played in the 2006 U.S. Army All-American Bowl with future Nittany Lions teammates
Maurice Evans and A.J. Wallace.

As a senior, Odrick recorded 70 tackles, with 10 stops for losses, five sacks and three blocked kicks. He registered 80
tackles, including 18 behind the line of scrimmage, eight sacks and 60 pancake blocks as a two-way tackle during his
junior season.

Odrick played in 10 games as a true freshman at right defensive end for Penn State in 2006. He was on the field for 125
plays and notched four tackles, including his first career sack in the Minnesota clash.

Odrick shifted to left defensive tackle as a sophomore, starting seven of the team’s first eight games before missing the
rest of the year due to injuries. He posted 16 tackles (8 solos) with two sacks, four stops for loss and a blocked kick.

Odrick returned bigger and stronger in 2008, starting 11 games at left tackle in 2008. The junior registered 41 tackles that
included 4.5 sacks. He caused a fumble and made 9.5 stops for loss, including one that resulted in a safety vs. Michigan.
He participated in 661 plays for PSU.

When Odrick was named All-American in 2009, it marked the 94th time a Nittany Lion had been so honored (80 players
total, with several repeat honorees).

The Big Ten Conference Defensive Player of the Year had 43 tackles with seven sacks and eleven stops behind the line
of scrimmage, as PSU ranked second in the Big Ten and ninth in the nation in total defense (274.46 ypg) and placed sixth
in the FBS in run defense, allowing only 89.85 yards per game on the ground.

VINCE OGHOBAASE
Defensive Tackle/Nose Guard/Defensive End
Duke University Blue Devils
#3
6:05.2-303
Houston, Texas
Alief Hastings High School

OVERVIEW
Blessed with an incredible wingspan and fine strength, Oghobaase also a strong first-step off the snap.

The defensive captain’s value to the Blue Devils was never more evident than during the 2009 campaign. Duke compiled
a 4-3 record and had a three-game win streak with Oghobaase in the trenches, but without him, they lost three of the four
games that he was sidelined with a leg injury.

Since putting on a Blue Devils uniform, Oghobaase has been involved in 159 plays vs. the run, limiting those ball carriers
to 164 yards with no touchdowns, an average of 1.03 yards per rushing attempt. In 44 career contests, that has resulted in
teams gaining 3.73 total yards per game on the ground vs. the powerful defensive tackle. In comparison, during that same
44-game span, the opposition has averaged 4.46 yards per carry and 174.25 total yards per game on the ground vs. the
rest of the Duke defense.

At Alief Hastings High School, Oghobaase received a five-star rating from Rivals.com and was ranked the 15th-best
prospect in the state of Texas by that recruiting service. The two-year letterman added Prep Star All-American and All-
State accolades. Scout.com rated the defensive tackle the seventh-best in the country at his position, and the third-best
overall prospect in the state of Texas. Tom Lemming of ESPN had him ranked 11th among the prep defensive tackles.

Oghobaase was a Texas Football Top 100 choice. He was one of five finalists for the Watkins Award, an honor given to
the top African-American high school student-athlete in the country. As a senior, the All-State first-team choice registered
68 tackles and 12 sacks, adding 94 tackles and All-District accolades as a junior.

Heavily recruited, Oghobaase enrolled at Duke in 2005 but didn’t see action until the following year. He started all 12
games in 2006, playing mostly at weak-side defensive tackle, but he also saw action at nose guard. He managed to
record 28 tackles (11 solos) with a sack, eight stops for losses and three pressures. He also registered the team’s first
safety since the 2000 season and became the first Duke freshman to serve as game captain, having that honor bestowed
upon him vs. Navy. On 25 running plays that he made stops on, the opposition was held to 10 yards (0.4 avg).

In 2007, the team co-captain delivered 50 tackles (21 solos) with 4.5 sacks. He was credited with 12 stops behind the line
of scrimmage and 15 quarterback pressures. He also blocked a kick. Even though the team gave up an average of 180.25
yards per game on the ground, he held the opposition to 37 yards on 48 running plays he was involved in, leading all
Atlantic Coast Conference down lineman by holding those runners to an average of 0.77 yards per rushing attempt.

Oghobaase was named an All-American honorable mention and All-Atlantic Coast Conference second-team in 2008. With
the new coaching staff in place installing a 4-3 defensive alignment with multiple zone blitzes, Oghobaase did a stellar job
of handling multiple blockers, demonstrating impressive pass rush skills in the second half of the schedule. He finished
with 51 tackles (22 solos), tying for the team lead for the second-straight year with six sacks among his nine stops for
loss. His fourteen quarterback pressures ranked second among defensive tackles in the major college ranks.

In 2009, the team captain was selected as a preseason All-American second-team and All-ACC first-team pick. He was
later named to Phil Steele’s midseason All-Atlantic Coast Conference first-team.

In eight games during his final season, Oghobaase registered 2.5 sacks, 7.5 stops for loss and 10 quarterback pressures.
He registered 38 tackles (18 solos), as he caused a fumble on one of those pressures and also deflected one pass.

JEFF OWENS
Defensive Tackle/Nose Guard
University of Georgia Bulldogs
#95
6:01.0-304
Sunrise, Florida
Plantation High School

OVERVIEW
Without Owens capably manning the left defensive tackle position, the Bulldogs held opponents to under 100 yards on the
ground in eight of his final 20 games. He was involved in 32 running plays as a senior, holding those ball carriers to 43
yards (1.34 ypc) and no touchdowns, as he stopped those runners four times for loss and six other times for no gain. He
also killed nine scoring drives by making plays on one fourth-down and eight third-down rushing attempts in 2009.

At Plantation High School, Jeff was rated the 12th-best defensive tackle prospect in the nation by Rivals.com. The Super
Prep All-American and All-Dixie selection added Class 6A first-team All-State and 6A first-team All-County honors from
the Sun-Sentinel and Miami Herald. He was also a first-team All-Conference and team MVP, serving as the squad’s
captain. He would close out his prep career with appearances in the Florida/California All-Star game and Miami/Broward

In 2004, Owens led the county with 14.0 sacks, adding 74 tackles that included 27 stops for loss, as he forced eight
fumbles and recorded two interceptions. As a junior he was named first-team All-County and second-team All-State,
leading the county in sacks (12.0). The three-year starter was also a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Owens enrolled at Georgia in 2005, fighting for playing time at left defensive tackle with veterans Ray Gant and Darius
Swain. He came up with 16 tackles (11 solos) and a career-high three sacks while also recovering a fumble in 13 games
as a reserve. For his performance, he was named the team’s Defensive Newcomer of the Year and earned a spot on
Sporting News’ Freshman All-American squad.

Owens started 11 of 13 contests at left tackle in 2006. He registered 26 tackles (21 solos) with a sack, as he caused a
fumble that he recovered. In 2007, he was the winner of the Coffee County Hustle Award. He would go on to post 27
tackles (18 solos) with 3.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage in twelve starts.

Despite missing the 2008 season due to injury, Owens was named team co-captain for 2009. He embraced that
leadership role while starting all 13 games at his customary left tackle position. He collected a career-best 32 tackles with

JASON PIERRE-PAUL
Defensive End
University of South Florida Bulls
#90
6:04.6-270
Deerfield Beach, Florida
Fort Scott Community College
College of the Canyons
Deerfield Beach High School

OVERVIEW
Pierre-Paul, an accomplished high school basketball player, came into his own as a football player in 2009. concentrated
on basketball during his four seasons at Deerfield Beach High. With just one season of high school football experience
under his belt, he ended up at the College of the Canyons, a junior college in California.

The Canyons’ head coach, Garett Tujague, an offensive lineman at Brigham Young when Heisman Trophy-winning
quarterback Ty Detmer starred for the Cougars, recalls watching tape on Pierre-Paul. “He's a freak of nature,” Tujague
said. “When one of my assistants first showed me film on him, I watched three plays, and I’m like, ‘Are you kidding me?’
Some of the things I was able to witness him do first-hand were unreal. You don't get to coach too many kids like that.”

One year after hanging up his basketball uniform, Pierre-Paul earned All-American and All-Western State Conference
first-team honors at the Canyons in 2007. That season, he registered 49 tackles (42 solos), leading the conference and
state junior college ranks with 14.0 sacks and 19 stops behind the line of scrimmage. He also intercepted a pass,
deflected five others and caused two fumbles.

What really stood out during his first collegiate season on the gridiron were his standout performances in the playoffs.
Against Saddleback, he registered three sacks, picked off a pass and posted seven solo tackles. The following week, four
of his five tackles vs. Bakersfield came behind the line of scrimmage.

After his freshman season, Paul-Pierre left College of the Canyons, enrolling at Fort Scott Community College in Kansas.
The All-American and All-Jayhawk Football Conference selection continued to develop. He delivered 67 tackles (50
solos), 10.5 sacks and 20.5 stops for loss. He also recovered two fumbles and caused three others. He guided the
Greyhounds to a 9-2 record and a victory in the Heart of Texas Bowl.

After receiving nary a nibble from any major colleges coming out of high school, Pierre-Paul was the most coveted down
lineman in the junior college class in 2009. He earned a five-star prospect rating from Scout.com and was heavily pursued
by such universities as Florida, Miami, Florida State, Kansas State, Arizona and Nebraska and Oklahoma State.

Paul-Pierre eventually decided to enroll at South Florida, but could not report until late in fall camp. When camp opened,
he was still back home in Deerfield Beach completing two online elective classes he needed to finish his associate of arts
degree. The USF coaches spoke to him about the possibility of redshirting, but his performance in practice convinced
them to let him suit up and play last fall. He was listed fourth on the depth chart when he first arrived on campus, but
played in all 13 games, starting seven contests.

Paul-Pierre was named to Pro Football Weekly’s All-American first-team in 2009. He added All-Big East Conference
honors, as he ranked third in the league with 16.5 tackles behind the line of scrimmage. He added 6.5 sacks, along with
45 hits (27 solos), as he broke up three passes and picked off another for an 18-yard touchdown return.

In three collegiate stops, Pierre-Paul played in 35 games, recording 161 tackles (119 solos) with 31.0 quarterback sacks

BRIAN PRICE
Defensive Tackle
University of California, Los Angeles Bruins
#92
6:01.1-303
South Central Los Angeles, California
Crenshaw High School

OVERVIEW
The main weapon in Price’s arsenal is a powerful rip move that is especially effective when combined with his outstanding
leverage. He also has one of the fastest first steps among defensive tackles at the collegiate level and absolutely bursts
off the ball. His speed off the snap and active hands make it very difficult for offensive lineman to fully engage blocks,
giving him the advantage and allowing him to work his way into the backfield.

Price elevated his game in 2009, ranking third nationally in tackles for loss with 23.5, and he cost offenses 96 yards in
losses. His average of 1.81 tackles for loss per game ranked fourth in the NCAA. He also tied for 64th-nationally in sacks
this season with seven. His impact on the defense was apparent, as UCLA ranked fifth nationally in tackle for loss as a
unit with 106 (8.15 tackles for loss per game).

Price’s season total was also good enough for second all-time on UCLA’s single-season record list, behind only current
Washington Redskin Robert Thomas (26 tackles for loss in 2001). He ranks second in UCLA history with 44.5, just one
behind only long-time NFL safety Carnell Lake (45.5 tackles for loss from 1985-88).

At Crenshaw High School, Price received a five-star rating from Scout.com, and ranked nationally as the seven-best
defensive tackle and 50th-overall prospect by that recruiting service. Additionally, Rivals.com gave him a four-star rating,
and listed him fifth nationally among defensive tackles. The three-year letterman added Parade All-American honors to his
many accolades, and was selected to play in the prestigious U.S. Army All-American game.

Price was an Orange County Register Fab 15 choice. He was named the Los Angeles City Section Defensive Player of
the Year in 2006, and the Coliseum League Defensive MVP for the second straight year after registering 85 tackles, 17
tackles for loss, 15 sacks, four forced fumbles, and two recovered fumbles as a senior.

As a junior, Price received his first Coliseum League Defensive MVP honor as he tallied 111 tackles, including 22 sacks.
Heavily recruited, he chose UCLA over offers from Arizona, Arizona State, California, Oregon, Southern California and
Washington.

As a freshman in 2007, Price earned him second-team Freshman All-American honors from Rivals.com and Scout.com,
and honorable mention from The Sporting News, as well as The Sporting News Pac-10 All-Freshman team. He also
received recognition from his team, being named the defensive winner of UCLA's John Boncheff, Jr. Memorial Award for
Rookie of the Year.

After a sensational freshman season, Price had lofty expectations for his sophomore year. He was named to the pre-
season Watch List for the 2008 Lombardi Award. Price started all 12 games that season, leading the team in tackles for
loss with 14 to rank seventh in the Pac-10 and 46th nationally. He was second on the team in sacks with 4.5 and tied for
fourteenth in the conference.

Price even played on offense as a fullback in goalline situations several times throughout the season, displaying his
athleticism and power. He ended the season on a high note vs. Southern California, making two tackles, one for loss, and
forcing a fumble which set up a touchdown. After the game, Price was named winner of UCLA's Donn Moomaw Award,
given to the most outstanding defensive player in the team’s annual contest vs. the Trojans.

Price finished the season registering 35 tackles (25 solo) with 14 for combined losses of 54 yards, 4.5 sacks, one
interception, one fumble forced, one pass break-up, and one blocked kick. He was named a first-team All-Pac-10
selection by the league's coaches, and first-team Sophomore All-American by College Football News.

During his junior season, Price was named Pac-10 Conference Pat Tillman Defensive Player of the Year and first-team
All-Pac-10. He was a semifinalist for the Bednarik Award (nation’s top defender) and a quarterfinalist for the Lott Trophy
(nation’s best defender on and off the field). He was also an All-American first-team choice.

Starting all 13 games, he was a dominating force in the middle for UCLA, racking up 48 tackles (41 solos) with seven
sacks, 23.5 tackles for loss, two forced fumbles, one QB pressure and one pass break-up, despite facing constant double-
team coverage weekly.

GEORGE SELVIE
Defensive End
University of South Florida Bulls
#95
6:04.3-252
Pensacola, Florida
Pine Forest High School

OVERVIEW
One of the most decorated players in Big East Conference history, Selvie is the only two-time All-American selection to
perform for the Bulls. A model of consistency, the former 235-pound center quickly adapted to the defensive side of the
ball. By the time he was a junior, he was already leading all active NCAA players in tackles behind the line of scrimmage.

During his time at USF, Selvie was the recipient of 23 conference or national postseason honors. He holds the school
record with nine fumbles forced. He also holds every school game, season and career record for sacks and tackles
behind the line of scrimmage.

At Pine Forest High School, Selvie earned Class 3A All-State second-team honors as a senior two-way lineman. A Super
Senior choice by the Pensacola News Journal, the Emerald Coast all-star selection recorded 55 tackles with six
quarterback sacks that year. He also competed on the weightlifting team.

A two-star prospect, according to Rivals.com, Selvie enrolled at South Florida in 2005. He red-shirted that campaign and
was the recipient of USF's Overachiever Award, for his outstanding work in the strength and conditioning program.

In 2006, Selvie came into his own after switching to defense. He took over right DE duties, starting all 13 games. He was
named the team’s Rookie of the Year and earned a spot on The Sporting News’ Freshman All-American squad. He
posted a career-high 84 tackles that included 5.5 quarterback sacks and 15.0 stops behind the line of scrimmage.

Four of his nine QB pressures caused interceptions and he caused four fumbles with two fumble recoveries, advancing
one nine yards for a touchdown vs. West Virginia. He would add 3.5 stops for loss and eight tackles vs. the Mountaineers,
earning national Player of the Week accolades.

As a sophomore, he was a consensus All-American first-team selection and named Big East Conference Defensive
Player of the Year. He followed in the footsteps of Warren Sapp, Terrell Suggs and Julius Peppers by winning the Bill
Willis Award, which is given annually to the top defensive lineman in the nation by the Touchdown Club of Columbus.

Selvie was also named Tampa Amateur Male Athlete of the Year by the Sports Club of Tampa Bay and was a finalist for
the Ted Hendricks Award and Bronko Nagurski Trophy. He would posted the greatest defensive season in USF history,
as he led the country with 31.5 tackles for loss and needed just one more to break the NCAA record.

The right defensive end ranked second in the nation sacks with 14.5, after leading the country in the category for the
majority of the season. In just 26 games as a Bull, he already had established a new school career-record with 20 sacks.
He would close out the 2007 season with 59 tackles (46 solos), thirteen pressures and three forced fumbles.

Despite playing with a nagging right ankle sprain most of the season, Selvie again received All-American and All-Big East
first-team honors in 2008. He finished fifth in the league with 13.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage, adding 5.5 sacks
with a trio of QB pressures. He also collected 43 tackles (30 solos) and broke up five pass attempts.

In 2009, he was a second-team All-Big East choice by the league’s coaches, totaling 42 tackles (19 solos) during his final
season. He delivered seven pressures and 9.5 stops for loss that included 3.5 sacks.

Selvie would leave his imprint on the school and Big East record books. His 69.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage was
the most by the active NCAA performers, with Brandon Graham of Michigan a distant second at 56 stops. Just Graham
(29.5) and Dexter Davis of Arizona State (31) had more sacks among active players that Selvie’s 29.

CAREER NOTES
Selvie started 50 of 51 games at right defensive end for South Florida, recording 227 tackles (150 solos) with 29.0 sacks
for minus 172 yards, 69.5 stops for losses totaling 303 yards and 32 pressures…Caused nine fumbles and recovered five
others, returning one nine yards for a touchdown…Also deflected eight passes…One of eight players in major college
history to registered at least 60 tackles behind the line of scrimmage in a career, as his 69.5 are topped by only Jason
Babin (75.0, 2000-03)…Babin also inched ahead of Selvie on the NCAA season-record list with 32.0 stops for loss in
2003, as Selvie totaled school and Big East Conference records with 31.5 in 2007…Selvie’s 29.0 sacks tied Kenny
Holmes of Miami (1993-96) for sixth place on the Big East career-record list…His 14.5 sacks in 2007 set the USF season-
record and rank fifth on the conference annual record chart…His four sacks vs. Elon in 2007 tied the school game-record
that was first set by Shurron Pierson vs. Southern Mississippi in 2002 and rank third on the Big East game-record list
behind Elvis Dumervil of Louisville (six vs. Kentucky, 2005) and Dwight Freeney of Syracuse (4.5 vs. Virginia Tech,
2000)…Holds the school’s top three spots on the game tackle-for-loss chart, with six vs. Elon in 2007, five vs. North
Carolina in 2007 and five vs. Florida International in 2006…His 31.5 tackles for loss in 2007 shattered the previous school

D’ANTHONY SMITH
Defensive Tackle/End
Louisiana Tech University Bulldogs
#5
6:02.1-304
Pickering, Louisiana
Pickering High School

OVERVIEW
Smith is a skilled inside run stuffer with the ability to play outside in a 3-4 defensive alignment, or bulk up to command the
middle of the field as an under-tackle in a 4-3 scheme. Blessed with exceptional strength, he had to use all his power last
year to compensate for a rash of injuries and defections that left the Bulldogs with just three capable interior linemen for
the entire campaign.

While he excelled on the football field, Smith was equally diligent in the classroom, where it took him just three-and-a-half
years to graduate, boasting a 3.0 grade point average while majoring in Psychology.

Smith uses terrific athleticism to break through the interior of the offensive line. The two-time first-team All-Western
Athletic Conference performer is blessed with speed and quickness. He uses his great burst off the snap and agility to
work his way around offensive lineman and disrupt plays in the backfield.

In his four-year career, Smith made 23.5 tackles behind the line of scrimmage, costing the offense 105 yards. His 12.5
sacks rank tied for sixth in school history, topped by only Walter Johnson (38, 1983-86), Johnny Robinson (16, 1977-80),
Mike Wood (14, 1986-89), Courtney Wallace (13.5, 1985-88), and Lorenza Baker (13, 1988-91).

Smith attended Pickering High School, where his athleticism showed as he starred in multiple sports. On the gridiron, he
was a four-year letterman and started every season along the defensive line. The three-time All-District selection helped
Pickering to the District 5-2A title as a senior in 2005 while racking up 80 tackles (35 solo), five tackles for loss and three
sacks.

He was named to the All-West Central Louisiana team three times and was a three-time Alexandria Town Talk’s All-
Central Louisiana selection. He added All-Southwest Louisiana honors twice and as a junior, he was chosen the District 5-
2A Defensive Player of the Year, as well as the defensive MVP on the All-Southwest Louisiana and All-Vernon Parish
teams. Smith also played basketball for four seasons, and shined on the track and field team. He competed in the shot put
and was the district champ all four years. He won the Louisiana Class 2A state title in the shot put as a junior and senior.

Smith was originally scheduled to play tight end for the Bulldogs, hence the number 5 jersey. It didn’t take the Tech
coaches long to realize they had a gem on the defensive side.

As a true freshman, Smith started eight of 13 games he played in, lining up at both right defensive end and tackle. He
finished the season with 38 tackles (11 solos), including 3.5 stops for loss, 0.5 sacks one pass deflection. He even
intercepted a pass during his first career game vs. Nebraska, returning it seven yards.

As a sophomore in 2007, Smith continued to improve. He started 11 games as he settled into the lineup as the Bulldogs’
right tackle. He registered 42 tackles (15 solos), including 6.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage that included 3.5 sacks,
as well as one hurry and one forced fumble.

While Smith performed well during his first two seasons at Tech, he had a breakout year in 2008. The junior defensive
tackle started all 13 games and recorded 65 tackles (27 solos), leading the team with five sacks and eight stops for loss.
He also had three pass deflections and three quarterback hurries.

He earned first-team All-WAC honors, as well as first-team All-Louisiana accolades from the Louisiana Sports Writers
Association. He was named the team’s Defensive Player of the Week four times and helped lead the Bulldogs to their first
bowl appearance in seven years, a 17-10 victory over Northern Illinois in the Independence Bowl.

Smith returned as a senior in 2009 with high expectations. He was named to the Watch Lists for the Outland Trophy (best
interior lineman), Bronko Nagurski Award (best defensive player), and the Rotary Lombardi Award (college football
lineman who, in addition to outstanding performance and ability, best exemplifies the discipline of Vince Lombardi).

At the end of his final season, he again garnered first-team All-WAC honors, as he recorded 51 tackles (19 solos), 3.5
sacks and 5.5 stops for loss, adding five QB pressures, as well as one fumble recovery. He was named the team’s
Defensive Player of the Week twice.

NDAMUKONG SUH
Defensive Tackle/Nose Guard
University of Nebraska Cornhuskers

Portland, Oregon
Grant High School

OVERVIEW
Suh’s rise to prominence coincided with the arrival of head coach Bo Pelini in Lincoln, Nebraska in 2008. That year, he
became the first Nebraska down lineman since 1973 to lead the team in tackles.

He followed up a standout ’08 campaign with a banner 2009. The unanimous All-American first-team selection captured
virtually ever national defensive award – the Lombardi Award, Outland Trophy, Bronko Nagurski Trophy, Chuck Bednarik
Award, Big Twelve Conference Player of the Year Award and Bill Willis Award. He became the first defensive player to
capture the Associated Press College Player of the Year Award since its inception in 1998. He was the first defensive
tackle invited to the Heisman Trophy ceremonies since Warren Sapp in 1994.

Suh was the eighth Nebraska player to capture the Outland Trophy and the first since Aaron Taylor in 1997. He also
became the fifth Husker to win the Lombardi Award and the first since 1997. Nebraska’s five Lombardi awards are the
second-most by one school in the 40-year history of the award, trailing only Ohio State’s six Lombardi Award winners.

Suh became the fourth Husker to sweep the Lombardi and Outland in the same season, joining Rich Glover (1972), Dave
Rimington (1982) and Dean Steinkuhler (1983). Overall, he is just the 12th player to capture the Outland and Lombardi in
the same season, with the only other player to do so since 1996 being Louisiana State defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey in
2007, who was also coached by Pelini.

Suh made a clean sweep of the National Defensive Player of the Year awards by winning the Chuck Bednarik Award and
the Bronko Nagurski Trophy. He is the first Husker to receive both of those awards, and he became just the fifth player to
sweep those two awards. As a senior, he commanded constant double and triple team coverage, but went on to be the
first defensive lineman in school history to lead the team in tackles in consecutive seasons.

Suh’s 85 tackles in 2009 were the most by a Nebraska defensive lineman since 1974. He also led the team in sacks,
tackles for loss and pressures for the second straight year. The unit ranked seventh in the nation in total defense (272.0
ypg), ninth in rush defense (93.14 ypg) and led the major college ranks in scoring defense (10.43 ppg).

He led all Big Twelve Conference defenders with 26 pressures and paced the major college interior linemen with 12.0
sacks and 12 stops behind the line of scrimmage. His 10 pass deflections ranked second on the team and his 11 passes
defended made him the only defensive lineman in the country to crack the Top 100 on the NCAA FBS charts in 2009.

Suh was a two-way star at Grant High School, where he earned Parade All-American honors and was voted the 2004
Portland Interscholastic League Defensive Player of the Year and the state Class 4A Defensive Player of the Year. As a
senior, he recorded 65 tackles, including 10.0 sacks and recovered four fumbles. He also starred on the offensive line,
helping the Generals to a 9-3 record and a berth in the state quarterfinals.

Suh earned first-team All-League honors on both offense and defense, and in addition to his defensive accolades was a
first-team All-State pick on offense by at least one media outlet. He also earned first-team All-Portland Interscholastic
League honors on both offense and defense as a junior and was an honorable-mention All-State pick as a junior.

Suh was listed as the top prospect in the state of Oregon by Rivals.com and among the top ten defensive tackle prospects
in the country. He played in the U.S. Army All-American Game, where he lined up on the offensive line. He also played
basketball and was a track standout for Grant High, earning honorable-mention All-League honors in basketball as a
junior and senior.

In track Suh was the district shot put champion in 2004, and won the OSAA Class 4A shot put title in 2005 with a school-
record throw of 61-4. Thanks to his all-around athletic accomplishments, he was a finalist for the Portland Tribune’s
Athlete of the Year.

Suh enrolled at Nebraska in 2005, becoming the first scholarship player from the state of Oregon to play for the Huskers.
He was one of a school-record 13 true freshmen to see action that season. He played in the first two games before
missing the remainder of the season after undergoing knee surgery, receiving a medical red-shirt.
Suh played in all 14 games, mostly as a backup, in 2006, earning Freshman All-Big Twelve Conference honors from The
Sporting News. He also saw time on special teams as a blocker on the place-kicking unit, earning his first career start vs.
Oklahoma, when the Huskers opened that game using their goalline defense. He tied for third on the team with 3.5 sacks,
finished fifth with eight stops for loss and recorded 19 tackles (12 solos) while also picking off a pass.

Suh played in all 12 games, earning 11 starts at nose tackle in 2007. He posted 34 tackles (22 solos) with a sack and four
quarterback pressures. All six of his tackles for loss came in a four-game stretch early in the season.

In 2008, Suh began his rapid rise to college football’s elite. His 76 tackles (39 solos) were the most by a Husker lineman
since 1992. He posted 7.5 sacks and his 19 tackles for loss were the eighth-best total in school history. His two
interception returns for touchdowns set a school record for a defensive tackle.

Suh’s play helped Nebraska finish second in the Big Twelve Conference in total defense at 349.8 yards per game, an
improvement of 126 yards per game from the 2007 campaign. Suh also helped Nebraska record 35 sacks on the season,
22 more than its 2007 total. He also was used occasionally as a fullback, catching a 2-yard TD pass vs. Kansas.

The first defensive lineman to be a Heisman Trophy finalist since 1994, Suh recorded a career-best 85 tackles (52 solos)
with 12.0 sacks, 24 stops for loss and 26 pressures in 2009. He racked up 56 tackles behind the line of scrimmage, the
most by any active NCAA player. In addition to picking off the fourth interception for his career, he also blocked three
kicks as a senior, matching his total from his first four seasons at Nebraska combined.

DANIEL TE’O-NESHEIM
Defensive End/Outside Linebacker
University of Washington Huskies
#66
6:03.4-263
Waikoloa, Hawaii
Hawaii Preparatory Academy

OVERVIEW
Te’o-Nesheim is a high-motor, relentless pass rusher. The two-time second-team All-Pac-10 Conference performer never
quits on any play and gives maximum effort from snap to whistle. Blessed with the size, large hands and long arms you
look for in a pass rusher, his quickness is evident when he drops back to defend in passing situations.

His burst and lateral agility (4.18 20-yard shuttle/6.91 three-cone drill) indicate the potential to become a dominant force
as a strong-side linebacker in a 3-4 defensive scheme. His raw power (29 repetitions at 225-pound bench press) is
highlighted on the field, as he often easily battles offensive linemen bigger than him.

Te’o-Nesheim became a fan favorite during his days at Washington, as he is known for being an energetic, non-stop
player. The defensive end started all 49 games he played in for the Huskies, going on to set the school career-record with
30.5 quarterback sacks. His 50.5 tackles behind the line of scrimmage placed third in school history. He is also a physical
tackler, causing eight fumbles during his career.

Te’o-Nesheim attended Hawaii Prep where he was a two-time first-team All-League selection. As a senior, he led his
team to a 10-2 overall record, including a 9-0 league record, before losing in the state semifinals. He earned a three-star
rating from Scout.com and was ranked as the nation’s 56th-best defensive end prospect. Rivals.com listed him as the
33rd-best defensive end prospect in the country, and the fifth-best prospect in Hawaii.

The defensive end enrolled at Washington in 2005. He was a standout performer on the scout team that year, as he won
the Mark Drennan Defensive Scout Squad Player of the Year award at the team’s annual postseason banquet.

Te’o-Nesheim started all 12 games in ’06 and made The Sporting News Pac-10 Conference All-Freshman team. He
racked up 35 tackles (15 solos) with 6.5 stops for loss, 2.5 sacks and one pass break-up. His best game came vs.
Stanford, when he recorded four tackles with two for loss and 1.5 sacks. At season’s end, he was given the L. Wait Rising
Lineman of the Year Award. He also excelled in the classroom, earning Academic All-Pac-10 honorable mention.

As a sophomore in 2007, Te’o-Nesheim started every game and was voted Washington’s Defensive MVP by his
teammates. He recorded 57 tackles (31 solos) and ranked sixth in the Pac-10 with 15 tackles for loss and ninth in the
league with 8.5 sacks. His best game of the season came vs. in-state rival Washington State, when he registered nine
tackles (six solos), including four for loss and two sacks. He added the team’s John P. Angel Lineman of the Year award.

Although the Huskies struggled in 2008, Te’o-Nesheim was a bright spot. As a team captain, he lead Washington with
eight sacks and 11.5 tackles for loss, recording 65 tackles (41 solos). He ranked sixth in the conference with an average
of 0.67 sacks per game, eleventh with an average of 0.96 tackles for loss per game, and earned second-team All-Pac-10
Conference honors.

The defensive end was named the Guy Flaherty Most Inspirational Award winner, the oldest and most prestigious team
honor at Washington. He once again captured the John P. Angel Lineman of the Year Award, and the L. Wait Rising
Lineman of the Year Award.

CAM THOMAS
Defensive Tackle
University of North Carolina Tar Heels
#93
6:04.0-330
Eagle Springs, North Carolina
North Moore High School

OVERVIEW
Thomas’ importance and impact plugging the inside rushing lanes was evident during his Tar Heel career. Facing
constant double-team coverage, he is the consummate team player.

After North Carolina ranked 64th in the nation in total defense (365.38 ypg) and 56th in rush defense (139.38 ypg) during
his junior year, Thomas took over the leadership role on the front four. Even though his statistics did not match those from
his junior season, playing the anchor in the middle of the field allowed Thomas’ teammates to make the big plays. UNC
finished the 2009 campaign leading the Atlantic Coast Conference while ranking sixth in the nation in total defense, as the
Tar Heels allowed just 269.62 yards per game. With Thomas attacking ball carriers, the team led the ACC and placed
10th nationally in rush defense, holding their opponents to an average of 95.62 yards per game.

Thomas was a standout defensive tackle and fullback at North Moore High School. He was rated the 19th-best player in
the state of North Carolina by Super Prep and 16th by the Charlotte Observer. The 300-pound ball carrier rushed for 798
yards and 12 touchdowns on 130 carries as a senior, adding 600 yards with six scores during his junior campaign. He
also recorded 50 tackles as a junior. In addition to football, he lettered in basketball.

Thomas became part of North Carolina’s defensive tackle rotation, sharing right side duties with Shelton Bynum in 2006.
The red-shirt freshman notched 18 tackles in 12 games, as he posted 1.5 sacks and ten solo stops. He played seven
games in 2007, starting three contests at left tackle. He talled eight tackles that included a sack, a pressure and a forced
fumble.

Thomas returned to right defensive tackle in 2008, starting all 13 games. He had his best statistical season, as he
produced 34 tackles (19 solos). He registered 3.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage, including the final quarterback sack
for his career.

Thomas again anchored the front wall from the right tackle position in 2009. The full-time starter was in on 23 tackles (10
solos). He made 2.5 stops for loss with a trio of pressures. He also blocked a kick vs. East Carolina and scooped up a
fumble and rumbled 20 yards for a touchdown vs. Boston College.

CAREER NOTES
Thomas played in 45 games, starting 29 contests, including his final 26 at North Carolina, as he recorded 83 tackles (42

TORRELL TROUP
Defensive Tackle/Nose Guard
University of Central Florida Golden Knights
#98
6:02.6-314
Conyers, Georgia
Salem High School

OVERVIEW
Troup was the most important piece of the coaching staff’s rebuilding of the UCF defense. The three-year starter took on
double-team blockers on a consistent basis. All the changes that took place for Troup and his teammates in the past two
years brought the senior class a trip to the St. Petersburg Bowl. He is one of thirteen seniors who will be departing,
leaving a huge void to fill in the middle of the defensive line.

“I think Troup is a very unselfish player that works at the game and has a great sense of responsibility and accountability
to what needs to be done to win,” UCF coach George O'Leary said. “I think he works extremely hard at the things he
needs to do to get better. His work ethic is contagious. He’s very quiet, but I think he does a lot through his actions.”

Troup also changed positions. After recording 21 tackles during his first 25 games lining up at left defensive tackle, he
shifted to the right side for his junior and senior campaigns. The results were positive, as he registered 87 tackles with
four sacks and 17.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage in his next 25 contests.

Playing under the name of Johnson (he later changed it for family reasons), he was a three-time letter-winner at Salem
High School, earning All-State and All-Area honors as a junior and senior. He was rated the 36th-best prospect in the
state of Georgia by Rivals.com, adding first-team All-North Georgia accolades as a defensive tackle. He finished his final
season with 96 tackles (50 solos), six stops behind the line of scrimmage and three sacks.

As a true freshman, Troup started three of nine games, but struggled with his weight. He would close out the campaign
making just two tackles with a pass deflection in 2006. As a sophomore, he started eleven games and played in all
fourteen at left defensive tackle. He collected 19 tackles (13 solos) with two sacks and made 6.5 more stops behind the
line of scrimmage.

Shifting to right tackle in 2008, Troup garnered All-Conference USA second-team honors. He tied for sixth in the league
with a career-best 12.5 stops for loss that included a pair of sacks. He registered a career-best 52 tackles (30 solos) and
was credited with four pressures, while batting down two passes and causing one fumble.

That performance as a junior earned Troup preseason Bronko Nagurski Trophy, Lombardi Award and Outland Trophy
Watch List recognition. He did not disappoint, earning All-Conference second-team honors and posting 35 tackles with a
pair of sacks, five stops for loss and four pass deflections.

When Troup concluded his freshman year, UCF ranked 60th in the nation in sacks generated (2.08 pg), placed 79th in
tackles-for-loss (5.17 pg), ranked 101st in scoring defense (28.75 ppg), 81st vs. the run (149.25 ypg) and 106th in total
defense (398.08 ypg). As Troup continued to improve, so did the Knights’ defense. By the time he played his final game,
UCF led Conference USA and placed 13th in the nation in tackles-for-loss (7.23 pg), sixth in sacks (2.92 pg), fourth in
rush defense (82.77 ypg) and 42nd in total defense (350.54 ypg).

DAN WILLIAMS
Defensive Tackle/Nose Guard
University of Tennessee Volunteers
#55
6:02.0-327
Memphis, Tennessee
Memphis East High School

OVERVIEW
In the last two years, especially with the arrival of former Vols head coach Lane Kiffin and his father, Monte Kiffin, Williams
came into his own as a player. His improved quickness allowed him to play in the opponent's backfield on a regular basis
in 2009. Williams emerged as one of the elite defensive tackle prospects available to teams looking for a stout run-stuffer
with emerging playmaking ability.

While you could always see flashes of what Williams could be during his Tennessee career, his vastly improved burst,
combined with his already impressive strength, made him one of the most feared interior linemen in the Southeastern
Conference as a senior. In three seasons before the Kiffins arrived in Knoxville, the right defensive tackle recorded 90
tackles combined. As a senior, he registered 70.

At Memphis East High School, Williams was an All-State selection by the Associated Press and the Tennessee
Sportswriters Association in 2004. He was an honorable mention All-Southern pick by the Orlando Sentinel, adding All-
Metro honors as a member of the Elite team selected by the Memphis Commercial Appeal in 2003, as well as All-Region
and Most Valuable Defensive Lineman.

As a senior, Williams’ statistical totals included 132 tackles, five sacks, four forced fumbles and two recoveries. As junior
in 2003, he totaled 85 tackles, five sacks, three forced fumbles and four recoveries. He finished his sophomore year with
75 tackles, 10 for lost yardage and two sacks. Those totals helped his team reach the playoffs in his last two seasons.

Williams enrolled at Tennessee in 2005, spending the season red-shirting. He saw limited action in six games in 2006. He
had two tackles, including one sack in the Marshall clash.

Williams moved to left defensive tackle in 2007. He started 10 of 14 games, collecting 40 tackles (19 solos) with a pair of
sacks and 6.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage. He also came up with a crucial block of a field goal attempt to preserve
a victory over Kentucky.

As a junior, he started nine games and appeared in 12. He made 8.5 stops for loss with nine pressures, posting 48
tackles.

Lane and Monte Kiffin came on board for Williams’ senior season, when Williams started every game for the first time in
his career. Along with finishing third on the team with 70 tackles (36 solos), he had 2.5 sacks, nine stops behind the line of
scrimmage and nine pressures.

CAREER NOTES
Williams started 32 of 45 games for Tennessee as the right defensive tackle…Recorded 150 tackles (79 solos) with seven
sacks for minus 47 yards…Registered 25.0 stops for losses totaling 82 yards, adding 22 quarterback pressures…
Recovered one fumble, deflected a pass and blocked one field goal.

of end Robert Ayers, starting all 13 games at right defensive end…Recorded a career-best 70 tackles (36 solos), ranking

Also caused a fumble…Led a unit that allowed 318.77 yards per game…Made 68 plays vs. the run, holding those ball
carriers to 151 yards (2.22 ypc) and no touchdowns, as he stopped the opponent nine times for loss and five times at the
line of scrimmage for no gain…Made 12 of his running plays inside the red zone, including two on goal-line stands…
Registered six third-down hits against the run and two more in passing situations.

2008 SEASON
Williams started nine games at right defensive tackle…Finished seventh on the team with 48 tackles (23 solos), adding
1.5 sacks for minus 7 yards, 8.5 stops for losses of 19 yards and nine pressures…Also deflected a pass…While the
offense struggled, the Vols defense ranked 10th in the nation in scoring defense, allowing just 16.75 points per game, as
Tennessee led the SEC and placed third nationally in total defense (263.5 ypg) and 12th vs. the run (103.08 ypg).
2007 SEASON
Williams shifted to right defensive tackle, starting 10 games while seeing reserve action vs. California, Georgia,
Mississippi State and Vanderbilt…Recorded 40 tackles (19 solos), seventh-best on the team…Added two sacks for minus
18 yards…Registered 6.5 stops for losses of 31 yards to go with three QB pressures.

C.J. WILSON
Defensive End/Tackle
East Carolina University Pirates
#95
6:02.7-290
Belhaven, North Carolina
Northside High School

OVERVIEW
The unquestioned leader of the Pirates squad, Wilson is a personable and passionate student-athlete who, as a battle-
tested veteran, has firmly secured a reputation as one of the top defensive ends and pass rushers in Conference USA.
Possessing excellent quickness, strength, athleticism and attention to fundamentals, Wilson has earned his standing as
the unit's sack leader.

Wilson is a music aficionado and an accomplished piano player. He is also an academic success story, as he displayed
dedication and exceptional work ethic in the classroom that earned him selection to the 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09
East Carolina Athletic Director's Honor Roll as a communications major.

Wilson also comes from a sports-oriented family. Two of his older brothers played Division I football. Everett competed at
North Carolina A&T and Amos was a member of the New Mexico State squad. Two other brothers are playing at the
junior college level, one in football and the other in basketball.

Cited by position coach Vernon Hargreaves as the unit's recipient of the “distinction of attitude, effort and leadership”
award the last three seasons, Wilson ranks with the elite at his position among active defensive linemen, including sacks
(27.0), sack lost yardage (164), tackles for loss (45.5), and lost yardage via stops behind the line of scrimmage (213).

At Northside High School, Wilson was a two-time Washington Daily News All-Area choice, playing a key role in the
Panthers’ 13-3 record and a berth in the Eastern Championship contest during his senior year. The team captain also
earned All-Conference honors that season. In addition to football, he earned letters in basketball and track.

Wilson originally signed with East Carolina in February, 2005, but officially joined the Pirate football program after the
spring semester (2006) after completing NCAA eligibility requirements. He became an instant success as a true freshman,
earning his way into the starting lineup for seven games in 2006. He began a string of four consecutive seasons as the
team’s sack leader, dropping four quarterbacks among his 29 tackles (17 solos), six stops for loss and four pressures.

As a sophomore, Wilson came off the bench for the first four games before securing the starting job at left defensive end
for the final nine contests. He posted 36 tackles along with seven sacks. He also produced 10.5 stops behind the line of
scrimmage, along with 12 pressures while blocking two kicks.

The 2008 season garnered Wilson national attention. He was named Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year and
was also selected the league’s MVP. He recorded 70 tackles (35 solos) in 14 starting assignments, ranking second in the
conference with 10.5 sacks and third with 18.5 stops for loss, guiding a unit that led Conference USA in scoring defense
(21.07 ppg) and total defense (333.00 ypg).

Wilson was again named first-team All-Conference USA as a senior. He started all 14 games, posting 57 tackles (23
solos) that included 5.5 sacks, 10.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage and fourteen QB pressures. He also blocked the
fourth kick for his career and caused a pair of fumbles.

LINDSEY WITTEN
Defensive End/Outside Linebacker
University of Connecticut Huskies
#9
6:04.2-258
Cleveland, Ohio
Glenville High School

OVERVIEW
An emerging talent, Witten patiently waited for his opportunity to be a full-time starter. With three years of mostly reserve
duty under his belt, he was primed to show off his skills as a senior. Well-coached in the prep ranks by Ted Ginn, Sr., the
father of Miami receiver Ted Jr., at Glenville High, Witten was up for the challenge of taking on Big East offensive linemen.

Witten also comes from a sports-oriented family. He converses regularly with his older brother Donte Whitner, who started
at strong safety for Ohio State and was picked in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft (eighth overall) by the Buffalo Bills.

Witten started off his final season strong, registering three quarterback sacks in each of the first two games. He went on to
lead the Big East and rank ninth in the nation with 11.5 sacks, the third-best season total in school history. His 14 tackles
behind the line of scrimmage, a career-high, placed him 11th on Connecticut’s annual record chart.

Witten received All-Big East Conference first-team honors in 2009. His ability to get to the quarterback etched his name in
UConn record books. He closed out his Huskies career as the school’s fourth-ranked sack artist, totaling 22 in 49 games.
He also cracked the top ten for tackles behind the line of scrimmage, (30.5 tfl totaling minus 176 yards).

Witten received just a two-star prospect rating from Rivals.com as a 190-pound defensive end. He earned All-State
honorable mention, recording 98 tackles with 18 sacks as a senior, leading the team to the 2004 state Division I
semifinals.

He was one of 15 Glenville High players to sign with a Division I university, as he enrolled at Connecticut in 2006. He
served as Cody Brown’s understudy until the junior was injured at midseason. The true freshman stepped into the lineup,
starting six games at right defensive end. He posted 39 tackles with 3.5 sacks and six stops for losses.

With Brown back in the lineup for the 2007 campaign, Witten was again used as a reserve, playing in 13 contests. He
recorded 23 tackles (12 solos), adding two sacks and 4.5 stops for loss. He also deflected three passes and had the only
interception for his career against Pittsburgh. Witten was slowed by a knee injury during 2008, totaling 19 tackles (9
solos), but five of those were sacks.

Witten started 12 of the 13 games in 2009. He finished seventh on the team with a career-best 45 tackles (29 solos) to go
with his 11.5 sacks, playing for a unit that allowed opposing ball carriers to average 132.85 yards on the ground.

COREY WOOTTON
Defensive End/Tackle
Northwestern University Wildcats
#99
6:06.0-270
Rutherford, New Jersey
Don Bosco Preparatory High School

OVERVIEW
Wootton’s banner 2008 season made him a strong candidate to apply for special edibility for the 2009 NFL Draft, but a
knee injury dictated that he return for a fifth season at Northwestern.

He returned to the Wildcats, starting 11 games in 2009. Wootton continued to improve as the season progressed, playing
his best football in the last month of the regular season, as he recorded at least one tackle behind the line of scrimmage in
each of Northwestern’s five contests on the schedule, including a quarterback sack in four of those five games.

At Don Bosco Prep, Wootton was rated the 62nd-best offensive tackle in the nation and earned New Jersey Top 30
honors from Rivals.com, a recruiting service that listed him as a three-star prospect. The All-State, All-County and All-
League selection also started at tight end and defensive end.

Playing for the top-ranked team in the Tri-State area, Wootton caught eight passes for 152 yards and recorded 62 tackles
with five sacks, as he also scored a defensive touchdown for the Ironmen in 2004. One of his best games came vs.
Bergen Catholic, when he recorded nine tackles, two pass deflections and a tip that led to an interception. He guided his
team to its second straight state title that year. Don Bosco was rated the 15th-best team in the nation during his final year
after finishing second nationally during his junior season on the USA Today poll, as the school stayed unbeaten both
seasons.

Wootton enrolled at Northwestern in 2005, but after starting two of three games, he suffered a neck injury vs. Northern
Illinois and was granted a medical hardship.

The next season, Wootton started all 12 games at left defensive end, earning Freshman All-American honors from the
Football Writers Association of America (FWAA). He was named to The Sporting News' Freshman All-Big Ten Conference
team and was selected the Wildcats’ Defensive Newcomer of the Year Award recipient.

Wootton became the first NU player since Hudhaifa Ismaeli in 1995 to accomplish every major defensive statistic in a
single season (tackles, TFL's, sacks, pass deflections, interceptions, fumbles forced, fumbles recovered, QB hurries and
blocked kicks), as he totaled 51 tackles (31 solos) with 4.5 sacks, nine stops for loss, a forced fumble and a fumble
recovery. He also deflected a pass, intercepted two others and blocked a kick.

Wootton’s sophomore campaign was a quite one, compared to his rookie season. He shifted to right defensive end,
starting all but the Eastern Michigan clash. He would make 39 tackles (21 solos), but had only one sack to go with seven
stops behind the line of scrimmage. He had another interception and five pass break-ups, blocking another kick for the
second-straight year.

In 2008, Wootton was a unanimous All-Big Ten Conference first-team choice. The team captain posted 42 tackles (25
solos), as his ten sacks ranked fifth in the conference and placed third on the school season-record list. His 16 stops for
loss were good for seventh in the Big Ten and tied for fifth on the Wildcats’ annual record chart. He added seven
pressures, blocked a kick for the third year in a row and came up with the fourth interception for his career.

A healthy Wootton down the stretch was a key reason the Wildcats earned an Outback Bowl invitation. Hoping to bring
Northwestern its first bowl victory since the 1949 Rose Bowl, the Wildcats fell short against Auburn, 38-35.

CAREER NOTES
Started 49 of 53 games at Northwestern, as the fifth-year senior recorded 156 tackles (94 solos) with 19.5 sacks for minus

loss in 2008 tied Loren Howard (2003) for fifth on Northwestern’s season-record chart behind Dailey (26 in 1997),

JASON WORILDS
Defensive End/Outside Linebacker
Defensive Tackle
Virginia Polytechnic (Tech) Institute Hokies
#6
6:02.1-262
Carteret, New Jersey
Carteret High School

OVERVIEW
Since George Foussekis became the first Virginia Tech defensive end to earn All-American honors (second team, 1966),
the Hokies developed outstanding pass rushers over the last four decades. From Bruce Smith to Cornell Brown and
Corey Moore, the university prides itself on its ability to get to the quarterback.

Jason Worilds is the latest in the Hokies’ long tradition of pass rushers, but he may be one of the most athletic. In 41
games, he has 15.5 sacks, 75 pressures, 34.5 tackles for loss and caused five fumbles. In 2009, he joined Darryl Tapp
(35 in 2005) and Chris Ellis (38 in 2007) as the only Hokies to register more than 30 QB pressures in a season during the
coach Frank Beamer era.

There is much more to Worilds’ game than just attacking the quarterback. He has proven to be a very capable run stuffer.
In 117 run plays, he has limited the opposition to just 44 yards, an average of 0.38 yards per attempt. No running back
has ever scored against him since he joined the varsity for two games as a freshman. On those 117 plays, he stopped
those runners for a loss 43 times, took down ball carriers at the line of scrimmage for no gain 14 times, made 25 third-
down hits and three more on fourth-down snaps.

Worilds has made 84 plays vs. the aerial attack, as the opposition completed just 10 of those attempts (11.90 pass
completion percentage) for 62 yards, which translates to 6.2 yards per completion and 0.74 yards per attempt, the lowest
figure for any major college down lineman. He delivered 30 third-down stops and three more on fourth down.

At Carteret High School, Worilds became the first player in school history to receive All-State first-team honors in
consecutive seasons. The Super Prep and Prep Star All-American selection was rated the seventh-best strong-side
defensive end in the nation by Rivals.com and was ranked eighth at his position in the country by Scout.com. He picked
up Associated Press All-State honors twice as a defensive end, but also competed as a fullback and outside linebacker.
He also competed as a sprinter and in the weight events for the school’s track team.

The Rivals-250 selection as a senior, Worilds registered 107 tackles, including 10.0 sacks and 18 other stops for loss that
season. He added four fumble recoveries, as he forced five fumbles and came up with one interception. On offense, he
collected 468 yards on the ground as a fullback, scoring 11 touchdowns. Against Perth Amboy, he amassed 183 yards on
11 carries with two TDs, adding two sacks, three stops for loss and caused a fumble that he recovered for another score.

As a junior, he delivered 87 tackles, along with 12.0 sacks and 22 stops behind the line of scrimmage to garner first-team
All-State accolades. He also scored four times while picking up 330 yards on 61 carries that season. He would close out
his gridiron career with 15 touchdowns and 849 yards on the ground, recording 292 tackles with 31 sacks, 42 stops for
loss, fourteen forced fumbles and three interceptions.

Recruited by Virginia Tech, Jason went by the surname of Adjepong as a freshman, but legally changed his last name to
Worilds in the summer of 2007. In 2006, he appeared in the team’s first two games vs. Northeastern and North Carolina
as a reserve at weak-side defensive end, recording four tackles and two pressures. The first-year player also advanced a
blocked punt seven yards vs. UNC. He was granted a medical hardship, missing the rest of the schedule after undergoing
right shoulder surgery.

Worilds not only changed his last name, but also his jersey number prior to the 2007 season, exchanging no. 43 for no. 6.
He appeared in 13 games. He shifted to the boundary side and ranked fourth on the squad with 14 pressures. The red-
shirt freshman also posted seventeen tackles (9 solos) with 2.5 sacks and 4.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage.

Worilds garnered All-ACC second-team honors in 2008. He ranked third in the conference with a team-high eight sacks
and also paced the Hokies with 18.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage and 21 pressures. He blocked a field goal,
caused three fumbles and also broke up one pass to help the team rank seventh in the nation, as Tech allowed just
279.43 yards per game.

Called the team’s “Most Important Player” by the Hokies’ defensive captain and fellow defensive end, Orion Martin,
Worilds was largely responsible for the 2008 squad’s dominance in the trenches.
From 240 pounds two seasons prior, Worilds arrived at 2009 fall camp a muscular 262-pounder. The preseason All-
American continued his stellar play. He finished the campaign with 50 tackles, along with 5.0 sacks, 11.5 stops for loss
and a forced fumble. His 38 quarterback pressures are the most of any major college defensive player.

“He’s a great leader,” fellow Virginia Tech defensive lineman John Graves said. “You know, playing with him ... all these
years, he’s just a cool, calm and collected kind of guy. But, nothing makes him more excited than playing football. He’s an
extremely hard worker. Every day in the weight room, you can find him doing extra things to make himself a better player.”

WILLIE YOUNG
Defensive End
North Carolina State University Wolfpack
#97
6:04.6-251
Riviera Beach, Florida
Palm Beach Gardens Community High School

OVERVIEW
In Young’s last two seasons, he produced 30.85 percent of the sacks recorded by the Wolfpack defense (14.5-of-47).
Even though he was primarily a pass rush specialist, he also made 18.93 percent of the team’s tackles behind the line of
scrimmage (26.5-of-140) during that span.

With long arm, initial quickness and ability to pursue long distances, Young led State in sacks in each of his last three
seasons. He started 36 games for the Wolfpack, at right defensive end in 28 contests and on the left side in nine games.
He finished his career by participating in 2,193 defensive snaps.

Young was a three-sport standout at Palm Beach Gardens Community High School, where he competed in football,
basketball and track. The first-team Class 6A All-State defensive end recorded 65 tackles, including 25 for loss, and had
12.0 sacks as a senior. He also made 60 tackles, 15 stops behind the line of scrimmage and nine sacks as a junior. He
received a three-star prospect rating from Scout.com. In basketball, Young averaged 10 points and 12 rebounds per
game in his senior season. Despite not joining the track team until midway through the season, he finished fourth at the
state 4A meet in the high jump.

Young originally signed with North Carolina State in 2004, and spent that year at a local prep school before enrolling at
NC State in January, 2005. He spent the season competing on the scout team.

One of the standouts of 2006 preseason camp, the “Second Effort” Award winner shared right defensive end duties with
Martrel Brown that year, starting five contests, including the final four. He had five QB pressures with 4.5 stops for loss,
returning his first career interception 34 yards for a touchdown vs. Clemson, finishing with 44 tackles (24 solos).

Young shifted to left defensive end in 2007, starting the final eight games. His 15.0 stops for loss ranked fourth in the ACC
that season and rank seventh on the school season-record list. It was also the second-highest total by a Wolfpack
sophomore. He led the team with 5.5 sacks, as he caused two fumbles, broke up three passes and recorded 38 tackles
(24 solos).

In 2008, he posted 58 tackles (29 solos) with 6.5 sacks, 12.5 stops for loss and 10 pressures. He finished the year strong,
collecting three sacks, 6.5 tackles behind the line of scrimmage and seven pressures in his final five contests.

The Atlantic Coast Conference’s second-leading tackle-for-loss leader among active players, Young was named All-ACC
second team in 2009. He delivered 54 tackles (32 solos) and again led the Pack with eight sacks and 14.0 stops for loss.
He also caused two fumbles and had the third interception for his career.

OVERVIEW
A relentless tackler, Angerer benefitted from having a veteran defensive line in front to register 107 tackles as a junior. He
followed up with an even more impressive senior campaign, finishing as the nation’s fourth-leading tackler in 2009. His
145 tackles in his final season rank fourth in school history.

Angerer has the ability to register tackles in bunches. At Bettendorf High School, he earned All-State and All-Conference
first-team honors in each of his final two seasons. The team captain holds the school records for tackles in a game (25),
season (197) and career (344) while playing middle linebacker.

His high school resume includes 344 tackles, 63 stops for loss, 17.0 quarterback sacks, five forced fumbles, four
recovered fumbles and one interception. He recorded 128 tackles with 28 stops behind the line of scrimmage, eight sacks
and a forced fumble while helping his team win Class 4-A state title as a senior. During his junior campaign, Angerer
posted 197 tackles with 35 stops for loss and nine sacks, plus four forced fumbles, three recovered fumbles and an
interception. He earned three letters in football, two in wrestling and soccer and one in track and field. The school’s 2004
soccer team captured the state championship.

Angerer enrolled at Iowa in 2005, but did not suit up for the Hawkeyes. He appeared in 13 games as a red-shirt freshman
in 2006, recording five tackles, four which were assists. As a sophomore, Angerer shifted to middle linebacker and played
four games, making one assisted tackle.

In 2008, Angerer started 11 of 13 games, earning All-Big Ten Conference second-team honors. The junior finished sixth in
the league while leading the team with 107 tackles (46 solos). He added 6.5 stops for loss and three pressures, causing
two interceptions on those hurries. He also intercepted five passes and broke up three other throws.

The two-time member of Iowa’s Leadership Group, Angerer was a consensus All-American first-team selection in 2009. A
finalist for the Bronko Nagurski Award (nation’s top defender), he exploded for a career-best 145 tackles (48 solos). He

NAVORRO BOWMAN
Outside Linebacker
The Penn State University Nittany Lions
#11
6:00.4-242
District Heights, Maryland
Suitland High School

OVERVIEW
Another in a long line of standout athletes to perform at Penn State, the athletic, swift and hard-hitting Bowman helped
carry on the “Linebacker U.” tradition.

Talent, hustle, toughness and determination are all attributes that Bowman possesses. He joined All-American Sean Lee,
Josh Hull and promising sophomores Michael Mauti and Nate Stupar to form college football's finest linebacker unit in
2009. With Bowman, Lee and Hull as the starters, the trio combined for 295 tackles, seven quarterback sacks and 36.5
stops behind the line of scrimmage, a major reason that Penn State ranked third in the nation in scoring defense (12.23
ppg), sixth in rush defense (89.85 ypg) and ninth in total defense (89.85 ypg).

Bowman was a standout linebacker and tailback for the late Nick Lynch at Suitland High School. He missed most of his
senior season with an injury, but he had an impressive junior campaign. That year, he recorded an amazing 165 tackles,
with nine sacks and three fumble recoveries and ran for 1,200 yards and 22 touchdowns. For his superlative efforts, he
was selected the Maryland Defensive Player-of-the-Year, first-team All-State, Washington Post first-team All-Metro Area
and first-team All-Conference.

Bowman enrolled at Penn State in 2006, appearing briefly vs. Youngstown State before being red-shirted. He played in
nine games as a reserve left outside linebacker in 2007. In 307 plays, he totaled 16 tackles (4 solos) with a sack, causing
a fumble and recovering another.

He moved into the starting in the fourth game of the 2008 campaign, earning first-team All-Big Ten Conference honors.
He ranked eighth in the league with a team-high 106 tackles (61 solos) that included four sacks and placed eighth in the
conference with 16.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage. He also caused two fumbles, broke up five passes and picked
off another on 702 defensive snaps.

Primed for a banner 2009 campaign, Bowman finished second on the team with 93 tackles (53 solos), ranking seventh in
the Big Ten. He also led the Lions while ranking third in the league with 17.0 stops for loss. His biggest plays came on a
91-yard fumble recovery return for a score vs. Eastern Illinois and on a 73-yard interception return for a touchdown that
sealed Penn State’s victory over Indiana. He would garner second-team All-American honors, as the Bednarik Award
semi-finalist was also selected All-Big Ten first-team for the second consecutive season.

CAREER NOTES

2008 All-American candidate Sean Lee to a serious knee injury in spring practice, Bowman combined with Josh Hull and
Tyrell Sales to keep the high level of productivity going for "Linebacker U," as he played an instrumental role in Penn
State being ranked in the Top 10 in the nation in three primary defensive categories, including eighth in scoring defense
(14.38 ppg), total defense (280.08 ypg) and rush defense (93.23 ypg)…Bowman led the Nittany Lions in total tackles

DONALD BUTLER
Middle/Outside Linebacker
University of Washington Huskies
#9
6:01.1-245
Sacramento, California
Del Campo High School

OVERVIEW
Butler has always been a valuable performer, with his ability to play any linebacker position being a major reason. He
found a home in the middle last season after the Huskies changed coaching staffs, displaying the talent and range to be
effective stuffing the run in a classic 4-3 scheme or dropping back in pass coverage playing in a 3-4 alignment.

Butler has great size and a strong build. His speed allows him to get great penetration through the middle and into the
backfield to disrupt plays. In 2009, Butler averaged of 1.38 tackles for loss per game, ranking second in the Pac-10
Conference and 19th nationally.

Butler offers versatility, not only by having experience at multiple linebacker positions, but has also proven to be a
standout on the punt and kickoff coverage units as well. In four seasons, he totaled 27 special team tackles, most of any
Husky during that span.

At Del Campo High School, Butler led his team to an 8-3 record and a state playoff berth in 2005. As a senior, he earned
All-Metro honorable mention by the Sacramento Bee. He competed at linebacker and tailback, gaining 762 yards and 16
touchdowns on 82 carries.

Butler earned second-team All-Metro and All-Cal MVP honors as junior while leading his team to a 9-2 record and the
Capital Athletic League Championship. He rushed for 1,504 yards and 22 touchdowns on 170 carries. He was named one
of the Top 15 prospects in the Sacramento area by the Sacramento Bee. He was given a three-star rating by Rivals.com,
who ranked him the 55th-best linebacker in the nation.

Butler enrolled at Washington in 2006 and became one of two true freshmen to see playing time. He played in 10 games,
recording 24 tackles with two stops behind the line of scrimmage and one forced fumble. He was also presented with
Washington’s Travis Spring Most Outstanding Freshman award for a defensive player.

As a sophomore in 2007, Butler played in eight games with four starts at middle linebacker. He sat out five games late in
the year with a knee injury, but still managed to rank sixth on the team with 52 total tackles, adding 2.5 stops behind the
line of scrimmage. He also earned Academic All-Pac-10 Conference honorable mention.

Butler played in all 12 games with 11 starts (five at middle linebacker, six at outside linebacker) as in 2008. He ranked
fourth on the team with 69 tackles, including seven stops for loss. He added two sacks and one forced fumble. He was
honored with the KING-TV Most Improved Player Award for the defense at the team’s postseason awards banquet.

As a senior co-captain in 2009, Butler earned second-team All-Pac-10 Conference honors as he started all 12 games at
middle linebacker. He led the team with 94 tackles, as his 16.5 tackles for loss were also tops on the squad, ranking
second in the conference. He was also named All-America honorable mention by Sports Illustrated and was presented
with the 950 KJR Defensive Player of the Year Award.

LEE CAMPBELL
Middle Linebacker
University of Minnesota Gophers
#30
6:02.5-246
Naples, Florida
Gulf Coast High School

OVERVIEW
As a 220-pound linebacker, Campbell shifted to left defensive end for the first eight games of his sophomore season
before the 250-pound lineman shifted to the right side for the final four contests of 2007. Bulking to 256 pounds, as he
expected to return to the line, Campbell was again on the move, taking over middle linebacker chores just weeks before
the 2008 schedule. He also filled in at defensive tackle in the early part of the year.

He found a home at his natural middle linebacker position. He has not only neutralized the opposition’s inside running
game, but has also shown off his solid pass coverage skills.

Campbell held the opposition to 356 yards and two touchdowns on 152 running plays during his final 24 contests, an
average of 2.34 yards per carry. Seventeen times, he has brought down ball carriers for no gain and 19 other times, he
made a crucial tackle of a running back behind the line of scrimmage.

Campbell is the only Big Ten Conference linebacker to hold his opponents to under 40 percent in pass completions during
the last two seasons. He has seen just 36 of 96 pass attempts get completed in his area (37.50 percent), holding his
assignments to an average of 6.69 yards per completion and 2.51 yards per attempt and no touchdowns, the lowest
figures of any Big Ten performer during that span. His physical press coverage ability resulted in 59 incomplete passes, a
total just three Big Ten players have exceeded (all cornerbacks).

In his two seasons in the middle, Campbell registered 52 third-down stops (26 vs. the run, 26 vs. the pass) along with a
pair of fourth-down hits. Thirty-three of his 187 tackles came inside the red zone (17.65 percent), including eight on goal-
line plays.

At Gulf Coast High School, the Presidential Academic Award winner and National Honor Society member excelled in the
classroom, football field and wrestling mat. As a senior, Campbell was named All-County, All-State and Class 4A All-
District XII. The linebacker set the school season-record with 151 tackles (88 solos) that included four sacks and 29 stops
for loss. He caused eight fumbles, recovered three others and picked off a pass for a 31-yard return, coming vs. Collier
High, where he also collected 15 tackles and scored on a rushing attempt.

Campbell registered double-digit tackles in 10 consecutive games that season, including 21 (14 solos) and a sack vs.
North Port High, 17 hits (10 solos) with a forced fumble vs. South Fort Myers and caused two fumbles while delivering 13
tackles vs. Naples High. Other top performances included an eight-yard sack and 15 tackles (7 solos) vs. Cape Coral, ten
hits with a pair of sacks vs. Cypress Lake and 14 tackles, including three on a sensational goalline stand that preserved a
19-17 win over Immokalee High.

The two-time All-City, All-Conference and All-Area linebacker also excelled in the 215-pound wrestling division. He
became the first state champion in school history after going undefeated in his final campaign. The Honor Roll student
was also named the top scholar-athlete in Collier County, receiving the Winged Foot Award for his efforts.

Arriving at Minnesota in 2006, Campbell played in a variety of roles for the linebacker unit as a true freshman. He
appeared in a total of 10 contests, recording 11 tackles (9 solos).

Spending a considerable amount of time in the training room, he bulked up to 250 pounds prior to his sophomore year,
winning a spot as the team’s left defensive end for the first eight games before shifting to the right side. In twelve starting
assignments, he ranked eighth on the team with 40 tackles (18 solos), adding two sacks and six stops behind the line of
scrimmage in 2007.

As a junior, Campbell took over middle linebacker duties, starting 12 games. He led the team with 80 tackles (50 solos)
and added four sacks with 6.5 stops for loss and three pressures. He also caused a fumble and recovered three others,
adding a pair of interceptions, along with a pass break-up, while also catching a pass vs. Northwestern.

In 2009, Campbell led the team and ranked third in the Big Ten Conference with 119 tackles (70 solos). He had 1.5 sacks,
made 11.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage and tallied three pressures. He also blocked a field goal and a PAT,
advanced a fumble recovery three yards, broke up four passes and intercepted another for a 32-yard return.

JAMAR CHANEY
Inside Linebacker
Mississippi State University Bulldogs
#22
6:00.6-242
Fort Pierce, Florida
St. Lucie West Centennial High School

OVERVIEW
Chaney made a successful return to the gridiron in 2009 after suffering a left leg fracture in the 2008 season opener vs.
Louisiana Tech. He helped fill the leadership void for a new coaching staff, leading the team in tackles for the second time
in his career.

Hailed as one of the most intense workout performers on the team, Chaney found a home in the middle after beginning
his Bulldogs career as a weak-side outside linebacker. He made an immediate impact in the lineup when he joined MSU
as a true freshman. By the end of his freshman season, he was a starter, a spot he maintained for 39 of his 49 games at
the university.

At St. Lucie West Centennial High School, Chaney earned Class AAA All-State third-team honors as a senior. The holder
of the school career-record with 31.0 quarterback sacks, he was rated the 29th-best outside linebacker prospect in the
country by Rivals.com following his senior season. He was also listed as the 44th-best prospect, regardless of position, in
the state of Florida by Rivals.

Chaney ranked 43rd among all players in the Southeast on the Scout.com regional top 100, the seventh-best linebacker.
He was selected to play in the Florida-California High School All-Star game and also competed on the school’s basketball
team.

In his final campaign, Chaney recorded 65 tackles and 10 sacks in just six games played during his hurricane-reduced
senior year at linebacker. He also played on offense, coming up with eight receptions for 150 yards and three touchdowns
at tight end.

Chaney collected 120 tackles with six sacks, a school-record 22 tackles for loss and five caused fumbles as a defensive
end as a junior. He also returned one interception for a touchdown and scored three times on receptions that season.

Chaney earned immediate playing time from the outset of his collegiate career at weak-side outside linebacker for
Mississippi State. He started three times in 2005, posting 31 tackles (14 solos) with a QB pressure. He started all but the
Alabama clash in 2006, finishing third on the squad with 66 tackles, adding 7.5 stops for loss that included 2.5 sacks.

In 2007, the junior earned All-Southeastern Conference second-team honors after shifting to middle linebacker. In 12
starting assignment he led the Bulldogs with 89 tackles (35 solos), ranking 17th in the league with an average of 6.85 hits
per game. He added four pass break-ups, four stops for loss and a quartet of QB pressures.

A preseason All-SEC pick, Chaney tallied 12 tackles in the 2008 season opener vs. Louisiana Tech before he sustained a
season-ending leg injury. He received an additional year of eligibility and took advantage of that opportunity to return to
MSU in 2009.

The senior middle linebacker finished his final season with 90 tackles (39 solos), adding two forced fumbles, two fumble
recoveries and a pair of interceptions. He ranked tied for eighth in the SEC in tackles per game, averaging 7.5 hits in
2009.

KAVELL CONNER
Outside Linebacker
Clemson University Tigers
#33
6:00.4-242
Richmond, Virginia
Manchester High School

OVERVIEW
Conner was a 200-pound prep standout before earning the 2008 Dedication Award for his performance in the weight
room. He bulked up to a solid 242 pounds and became a force against the run for Tigers. In his senior season, Conner
stopped runners on 87 occasions, holding them to 245 yards and a low 2.82 yards per carry average. He was a key piece
in a defense that ranked 20th nationally allowing just 314.29 yards in total offense per game.

Conner was a three-year starter at running back and safety for Manchester High School (Midlothian, VA). In his junior
campaign, the standout prep earned honorable mention All-State, All-District, All-Region, and All-Metro honors while
rushing for 1,187 yards and 15 touchdowns.

As a senior, Conner rushed for 1,301 yards and 25 touchdowns to complete his high school career as Manchester’s all-
time leading rusher and the third-leading rusher in region history. He also collected 25 tackles for loss. He earned first-
team All-AAA Central Region and first-team All-Richmond Metro honors and was a member of the Super Prep Mid-
Atlantic team as the 22nd-ranked recruit in Virginia.

Conner was given two-star ratings from major recruiting services Rivals.com and Scout.com. Scout ranked him as the
nation’s 67th safety prospect, while Rivals projected him as a running back.

He enrolled at Clemson in 2005 and retained eligibility by redshirting his first year. The 200-pound freshman was active in
the team’s weight training program and added 15 pounds to his frame. The following year, Conner was named the most
improved inside linebacker during spring practice and was the only redshirt freshman listed among the two-deep on either
side of the ball.

He was listed on the depth chart as the immediate backup to senior middle linebacker Anthony Waters, the ACC’s top
returning tackler and a good player to learn from. Conner played in every game but one and collected 27 tackles (15
solos). The highlight of his season came in a 51-0 shutout of Louisiana Tech, when he led the team with eight tackles
(four solos) despite playing just 16 snaps.

As a sophomore Conner continued his development, as he bulked up to a solid 230 pounds and was named the team’s
most improved inside linebacker during spring practice for the second-straight year. He switched to weak-side linebacker
and was the immediate backup to senior Nick Watkins.

Conner started two contests, including the Chick-fil-A Bowl against Auburn, when he registered 11 tackles and was
named the special teams player-of-the-game by the Clemson coaches. He finished with 36 tackles (27 solos), including
1.5 tackles for loss and three pass deflections.

After two seasons as a reserve, Conner moved into a starting role at weak-side linebacker in 2008. The junior burst onto
the scene by leading the team with 16 tackles (five solos) in the season-opener against Alabama.

He was a key piece in a defensive unit that ranked 18th nationally allowing just 299.92 yards in total offense per game. He
finished the year with 97 tackles (35 solos) including five tackles for loss and one sack, and added three pass deflections
and one interception.

Entering his senior season, Conner gained national recognition by being named to the preseason watch list for the Butkus
Award, which goes annually to college football’s top linebacker. He started 12 of 14 games and collected a career-high
103 tackles (55 solos) with two sacks and seven tackles for loss. He added two forced fumbles and one quarter-back
pressure.

RENNIE CURRAN
Outside/Middle Linebacker
University of Georgia Bulldogs
#35
5:10.5-235
Snellville, Georgia
Brookwood High School

OVERVIEW
Curran enjoyed productive seasons in each of his three years with the Bulldogs. Since taking over the weak-side outside
linebacker spot, he has ranked among the team leaders in tackles each game. In his last 26 contests, he posted double
digit tackle totals 11 times.

Curran led the team in tackles in each of the last two seasons, just the 10th Bulldog to accomplish that feat in consecutive
campaigns. He is also the first Georgia player since Greg Bright (143 in 1996, 128 in 1997) to record at least 100 tackles
in back-to-back years.

Even though he left the university after three seasons, Curran ranks 16th in school history with 298 total tackles. His 170
solo stops rank tied for 12th in Georgia annals. 24 of his total tackles came from behind the line of scrimmage, thanks to
his closing burst and good knowledge for taking proper angles into the backfield.

Curran was named to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Super Southern 100 and Class AAAAA teams as a senior at
Brookwood High School. He added Georgia Sports Writers Association Class AAAAA All-State honor. He was also a
member of Super Prep’s All-American and All-Dixie squads.

The Prep Star All-American was rated the 16th-best linebacker in the nation by Rivals.com. Scout.com rated Curran the
fifth-best middle linebacker in the country and the 11th-best overall player in the state of Georgia. He was named
Gwinnett County Linebacker of the Year as a junior and was a Georgia Athletic Coaches Association All-Star selection. In
addition to his defensive chores, he also saw action at running back.

Curran enrolled at Georgia in 2006 and was immediately thrust into the rotation, sharing weak-side linebacker duties with
Darius Dewberry. He started five of the 13 games he appeared in, coming up with 53 tackles (41 solos) and nine stops for
loss, including three sacks. That performance earned him Freshman All-American honors.

Curran became the full-time starter at weak-side linebacker in 2008. He rewarded the coaching staff’s faith in him by
leading the team and ranking second in the SEC with 115 tackles (63 solos). Ten of those stops came behind the line of
scrimmage, including three sacks. He also caused two fumbles that set up Georgia touchdown drives.

His 115 tackles were the most by a Bulldog since 1998. The Butkus Award finalist was named one of The Sporting News’
20 most indispensable college football players and labeled “the most dominant defensive player in the game.” He received
All-American recognition and was a consensus All-SEC choice.

Curran was named team co-captain in 2009. The Lombardi Award finalist led the team, ranked second in the conference
and placed 18th nationally with a career-high 130 tackles (66 solos) as a senior. He made at least 10 tackles in six
contests and had five stops behind the line of scrimmage, becoming the tenth Bulldog to lead the team in tackles more
than once in a career.

PHILLIP DILLARD
Middle Linebacker
University of Nebraska Cornhuskers
#52
6:00.2-245
Tulsa, Oklahoma
Jenks High School

OVERVIEW
During his Nebraska career, Dillard developed into the perfect compliment playing behind Nebraska’s renowned defensive
front line.

Dillard was one of the nation’s top linebacker prospects after earning Oklahoma all-state honors for two consecutive
seasons at Jenks High School, a Tulsa prep powerhouse. He led his team to a Class 6A state-runner-up finish in 2004,
when he had more than 120 tackles, including 75 solo stops and three sacks, along with seven pass break-ups.

In his final two seasons with the varsity, Dillard totaled more than 200 tackles. He also caught four passes as a senior,
three of which went for touchdowns. In addition to his All-State honors, he was named the Jim Thorpe Association
Oklahoma Defensive Player of the Year as a junior in 2003.

Rivals.com ranked Dillard among the nation’s top five prospects in Oklahoma and among the top five linebackers in the
country in 2005. He was one of seven 2005 Nebraska recruits who played in the U.S. Army All-American game in San
Antonio, as he helped the West squad to a 35-3 victory with an interception.

Dillard chose to enroll at Nebraska after also receiving scholarship offers from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas State
and Texas A&M, among others. He played in 11 games in 2005, earning his first career start at middle linebacker vs.
Missouri. He finished his first varsity season with 11 tackles (7 solos) and a stop for a loss.

Dillard missed most of the 2007 season after sustaining a knee injury in the season opener. He would return the following
season, starting twice. He managed to record 37 tackles (22 solos) with two pass break-ups.

As a senior, Dillard shifted to weak-side linebacker, earning nine starts, including in each of the team’s final eight games.
He collected a career-best 83 tackles (45 solos), two hits short of the team lead. His average of 6.92 tackles per game
ranked 13th in the league.

The All-Big Twelve Conference second-team selection was one of five Huskers to register double-digit (11) tackles-for-
loss in 2009. He also had three sacks while registering career firsts, with his only forced fumble and interception since he
put on a Nebraska uniform.

A.J. EDDS
Outside Linebacker
University of Iowa Hawkeyes
#49
6:03.5-246
Greenwood, Indiana
Greenwood Community High School

OVERVIEW
Edds was a Hawkeye standout from the day he showed up on campus. As a senior, he was part of an Iowa linebacker trio
(Jeremiah Hunter, Pat Angerer and Edds) that combined for 312 tackles.

Edds earned Freshman All-American defensive honors during his first year in the program, going on to start each of his
final 39 games at strong-side linebacker.

Edds was a Prep Star All-American first-team choice as a senior at Greenwood Community High School, adding
honorable mention from Street & Smith. The All-Johnson County Player of the Year was a finalist for Indiana's Mr.
Football and nominated for the U.S. Army All-American game. He was a two-time Indianapolis Star Super Team and
South Team pick and a three-time Associated Press first-team All-State selection.

A four-time first-team All-Conference and two-time team MVP, Edds started all four seasons as a linebacker and long
snapper. He also performed as a tight end in each of his final three seasons, recording 55 catches for 940 yards and 13
touchdowns in his career. He also totaled 390 career tackles and 12 interceptions.

Edds holds school records for tackles in a game (23), solo tackles in a game (17) and in a season (73). He produced 25
receptions for 348 yards and four touchdowns, along with 147 tackles and an interception as a senior. He had 26
receptions for 544 yards and four touchdowns as a junior, as the two-time team captain led the squad to the conference
championships in 2003 and 2005. He also lettered four times in basketball and track.

As a true freshman, Edds appeared in nine games at weak-side linebacker, starting vs. Purdue. He totaled nine tackles
with a forced fumble. Shifting to strong-side linebacker the following year, he would go on to start 38 games for the
Hawkeyes at that position throughout the rest of his career.

He received Academic All-Big Ten Conference honors in 2007, as he collected 80 tacklers (29 solos), second-best on the
team. He also began a string of three consecutive years of serving on the team’s Leadership Group.

Edds was named All-Big Ten honorable mention as a junior. He totaled 59 tackles with a pair of sacks and two fumble
recoveries. He also picked off a pass and recorded a safety on one of his 4.5 stops for loss.

As a senior, Edds was selected second-team All-Big Ten and named a team captain. He ranked fourth on the team with
78 tackles (28 solos) that included 4.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage. He deflected four passes and his five
interceptions ranked tied for fourth-best in the conference and 32nd in the nation.

THADDEUS GIBSON
Outside Linebacker/Defensive End
The Ohio State University Buckeyes
#90
6:02.0-243
Euclid, Ohio
Euclid High School

OVERVIEW
Gibson and Cameron Heyward formed a formidable tandem that helped keep the Buckeyes in contention for the national
championship. They both elevated their games in 2009, as Ohio State improved from their 18th-place ranking vs. the run
in 2008 (110.23 ypg) to seventh last season (90.77 ypg), showing an ability to excel in both run and pass situations.

With the 3-4 defensive alignment becoming increasingly popular in the NFL, Gibson could make a smooth transition back
to his original position, as he was recruited to play linebacker and competed as a reserve on the outside during his
freshman campaign. His range and foot speed saw him not only make 13 stops behind the line of scrimmage in 2009, but
he held opponents trying to run into his area to an average of 1.3 yards per carry last season.

Gibson was a coveted pass rusher coming out of Euclid High School, where he was twice named All-Ohio and to the
Cleveland Plain Dealer “Best of the Best” all-star team. The Big 33 Game selection was also named the Cleveland
Touchdown Club’s 2005 Defensive Player of the Year.

As a senior, Gibson registered 39 total tackles, 10 quarterback sacks and eight stops behind the line of scrimmage, as he
also totaled 24 quarterback pressures. He posted 50 tackles, 17 sacks, 22 pressures and two interceptions as a junior. He
also excelled as a forward on the school’s basketball team.

After contributing on the scout team in 2005, Gibson began to show flashes in limited playing time during the 2006
season. He played in nine contests as a reserve outside linebacker, finishing with 11 tackles (8 solos), collecting his first
career sack vs. Wisconsin. He also had three stops for loss and a forced fumble.

During the 2008 off-season, Gibson bulked up from 228 to 240 pounds for a move to the defensive line. When injuries hit
the front wall early in the year, he was inserted into the lineup at right defensive end, with Cameron Heyward shifting
inside to tackle.

Heyward commanded double team action, freeing Gibson to register five sacks and nine stops behind the line of
scrimmage. He posted 26 tackles and showed off his sudden burst when he scooped up a fumble and raced 69 yards for
a touchdown in the Michigan State clash.

Heyward moved back to right defensive end in 2009, with Gibson shifting to the left side. The junior received All-Big Ten
Conference honors, as he totaled 13 stops for loss that included four sacks. He tallied 45 tackles, picked off a pass and
caused a pair of fumbles while recovering two others.

CAREER NOTES
Gibson started 23 of 35 games at Ohio State – 13 at left defensive end and 10 on the right side…Finished his career with
82 tackles (49 solos), ten sacks for minus 55 yards and 25.0 stops for losses totaling 86 yards…His 13 stops behind the

touchdown…Deflected four passes and gained five yards on one interception return.

BRANDON GRAHAM
Outside Linebacker/Defensive End
University of Michigan Wolverines
#55
6:01.3-268
Detroit, Michigan
Crockett Vocation Technical High School

OVERVIEW
Graham is well-suited to make the transition from collegiate down lineman to a professional linebacker. He also
volunteered to join the kick coverage unit as a senior, highlighting his versatility. He blocked two punts and recovered
another for a touchdown in 2009. At a school with a tremendous history for producing elite talent, Graham was the first
Michigan defensive player to ever be voted Bo Schembechler Most Valuable Player twice (2008-09). The previous two-
time MVPs are running back Mike Hart (2006-07), wide receiver Anthony Carter (1980, 1982), running back Ron Johnson
(1968-69), running back Tom Harmon (1939-1940) and guard Ralph Heikkinen (1937-38).

He shared 2009 Chicago Tribune Silver Football as the Big Ten Conference’s Most Valuable Player with Penn State
quarterback Daryll Clark. Graham closed out his career ranked second in school history in forced fumbles (eight),
evidence that he not only gets to the quarterback or running back, but makes things happen when he does. His 29.5
sacks and 56.0 tackles behind the line of scrimmage also rank second in school annals. In 46 games at Michigan, he has
accounted for 40.56 percent of his tackles coming behind the line of scrimmage.

Graham attended Crockett Vocation Technical High School, where he led the school to its first Detroit Public School
League title as a junior and a semi-final appearance in the Division IV playoffs. The four-year starter earned Parade, EA
Sports and USA Today All-American first-team honors as a senior. He was rated the 14th-best player in the nation by
USA Today and Prep Football Report. He was selected Michigan Gatorade Player of the Year and was a member of the
Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s National Top 25 squad.

The Detroit News rated Graham the state’s best blue chip prospect in 2005, as the Detroit Free Press rated him second in
the Midwest region. He received a five-star prospect rating from Prep Football Report and Rivals.com, while Prep Star
ranked him third among the nation’s linebackers. He also earned Detroit News first-team All-Metro and first-team Class B
All-State honors as a junior.

Graham recorded 307 tackles, including 112 for loss and 56 sacks during his career. He also collected 16 fumble
recoveries, forced six more and grabbed two interceptions in four years at Crockett. He averaged more than 40 yards per
attempt as a punter. He totaled 98 tackles, 47 tackles for loss, 11 sacks, two interceptions and forced six fumbles.

As a junior, Graham posted 20 sacks and 10 fumble recoveries. He became the first player from the state of Michigan to
play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Elected captain of the East squad for the U.S. Army game, he collected four
tackles and one blocked field goal. In addition to football, Graham participated in basketball while also throwing the shot
put in track, logging a career-best toss of 50-0. He also ran a 10.9 in the 100 meters along with a 23.5 in the 200.

Graham appeared in 10 games during the 2005 season for Michigan. He saw time at defensive end vs. Vanderbilt, but
then moved inside to shore up depth issues at tackle and nose guard. He finished the year with three tackles, assisting on
a sack and causing one fumble.

As a sophomore, Graham played in 13 games, starting five games at right defensive end. His three forced fumbles tied for
fourth on the school season-record list. He collected 25 tackles (13 solos) and led the team (seventh in the Big Ten) with
8.5 sacks. He also notched two fumble recoveries, earning a spot on the Ted Hendricks Award Watch List (nation’s top
defensive end).

In 2008, Graham took over left defensive end duties, starting 11 games. The All-American honorable mention and All-Big
Ten second-team pick was bothered at midseason by a leg infection, but still went on to rank second in the conference
and 11th in the nation with 10 sacks, the eighth-best total in team annals. He led the league and finished second
nationally with 20 stops behind the line of scrimmage, as he produced 46 tackles (29 solos) and caused two fumbles.

As a senior, Graham was an All-American and All-Big Ten selection, in addition to being a finalist for the Ted Hendricks
Award. He registered 10.5 sacks with 64 tackles (42 solos) and caused two fumbles. He blocked two punts and returned
another blocked kick for a touchdown. He also led the NCAA with 26.0 stops for loss, tying for second on the school
season-record chart.

JERRY HUGHES
Outside Linebacker/Defensive End
Texas Christian University Horned Frogs
#98
6:01.6-255
Sugarland, Texas
Stephen F. Austin High School

OVERVIEW
The former prep running back took over left defensive end duties in 2008. In two seasons in the lineup, he established
himself as one of the premier pass rushers in the collegiate ranks. During his final 26 games, he led the nation with a total
of 26.5 quarterback sacks, adding 36.0 tackles behind the line of scrimmage.

During the course of those two seasons Hughes registered multiple-sack performances in eight contests. However, there
is more to the rush end’s game than getting to the passer. He also excelled in run support, as the Horned Frogs led the
nation in 2008 and ranked third in the NCAA in 2009 in rush defense. During those 26 games, opponents managed to
gain 100 yards on the ground vs. the Horned Frogs just seven times.

Rated a two-star prospect by Rivals.com, Hughes was a unanimous first-team All-District 20-5A selection at running back
as a senior, adding honorable mention Class 5A All-State accolades at Stephen F. Austin High School. That season, he
rushed for 1,412 yards and 19 touchdowns and totaled 215 yards receiving with three additional scores.

Hughes was also a first-team All-District pick as a kick returner. He was named to the Herald Coaster All-Area team and
was a second-team Greater Houston Class 5-A All Area pick. He was named Offensive Finalist of the Year by the
Touchdown Club of Greater Houston and selected as the team’s Offensive Most Valuable Player as well as garnering the
Offensive Back-Receiver Award his senior year. Hughes was also voted the Most Athletic in his senior class.

One of four true freshman to see action for the Horned Frogs in 2006, he was listed third on the depth chart at left
defensive end. He posted three tackles (two solos) that included a 9-yard sack vs. Army while appearing in ten games.

Hughes continued to play behind Chase Ortiz at left defensive end in 2007. He did get to start the New Mexico clash,
making 29 tackles (17 solos) with a sack and 3.5 stops for loss. He also intercepted a pass in the Wyoming contest.

Hughes arrived in 2008 fall drills with 20 pounds of muscle, now weighing 248. He secured a starting position at left end
and quickly established himself among the NCAA’s elite, leading the nation with 15.0 sacks while ranking 11th in the
country with 19.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage. The consensus All-American and Bronko Nagurski Award and Ted
Hendricks Award finalist finished fifth on the squad with 52 tackles, returning one of his two interceptions for a touchdown.

In 2009, he was again named All-American and All-Mountain West Conference first-team. The recipient of the Hendricks
Award and Lott Trophy ranked ninth in the nation with 11.5 sacks. He placed third in the MWC with a team-leading 16.5
stops for loss. He also totaled 58 tackles (32 solos) and seven pressures while causing two fumbles.

Penns Valley High School

OVERVIEW
A former walk-on, Hull has proven to be a reliable middle linebacker the last two years. The local product from nearby
Penns Valley High School, not even Hull envisioned the way his career would come to an end. Hoping for an opportunity
to just contribute in some way to the program, he finished second on the team in tackles as a junior and followed up that
display by leading the nation’s ninth-ranked defense in tackles during his final campaign.

Through hard work, intelligence and dedication, Hull earned a scholarship as a junior. He paid back his Joe Paterno’s faith
in him by producing 191 tackles, three quarterback sacks, 14 stops for loss and three interceptions since taking over at
middle linebacker in 2008. Hull formed one of the best linebacker units in college football, along with fellow starters Sean
Lee and Navorro Bowman. That trio registered 295 tackles, 26.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage and five interceptions
combined in 2009. Their success vs. the ground game saw Penn State finished sixth in the nation vs. the run, allowing
just 89.85 yards per game.

The middle linebacker has not only succeeded on the field, but has also excelled in the classroom. One of the team's
premier students, Hull also was selected a first-team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American, one of a program-
record four Nittany Lions so honored in 2008. He also became just the seventh Nittany Lion to earn first-team Academic
All-American honors twice, when he was chosen again in 2009.

Hull compiled a superlative 3.92 grade-point average during the 2008 fall semester for Dean's List accolades and had a
3.54 cumulative average by the time he graduated in December, 2009.

In the spring of 2008, Hull and punter Jeremy Boone were named co-recipients of the team's Frank Patrick Total
Commitment Award. The award goes to junior class squad members who consistently follow through with their
responsibilities in all facets of the football program and do so in an exemplary manner. This includes academic pursuits,
off-season preparation, in-season commitment, demeanor and community service.

To cap a stellar 2008-09 academic year for Hull, he was the recipient of the Eric A. Walker Award, presented annually to
the Penn State student who has contributed most to enhancing the reputation of the University through extracurricular
activities. Walker was president of Penn State from 1956-1970.

determination he brings to game-day. One of the squad's most active members in community service, Hull also enjoyed
having his younger brother, Ethan, join him on the Penn State squad as the redshirt offensive lineman.

Hull was a standout linebacker and fullback for at nearby Penns Valley High School. He was a three-year starter, serving
as team captain and defensive captain as a senior. He was selected first-team All-Conference on defense after his senior
season and was a team captain in the 2006 Lezzer Lumber Classic. He also was a three-year letterman on the baseball
team, earning first-team All-Conference accolades as an outfielder.

Hull, red-shirted after enrolling at Penn State during the 2005 season. He saw action mostly on special teams in 2006,
recording seven tackles (5 solos) while appearing in 13 games. He logged 166 plays that year, most by the special team
performers. As a sophomore, Hull participated in 292 defensive snaps as a reserve middle linebacker. He produced 18
tackles (6 solos) with an assisted stop for a loss and also broke up a pass.

The Academic All-American took over middle linebacker chores in 2008. He finished second on the team with 75 tackles
(41 solos) for a unit decimated by graduation departures and injuries. He recovered two fumbles, deflected three passes
and picked off another during 13 starts that encompassed 751 defensive snaps. He also captured All-Big Ten Conference
recognition.

Hull continued his progress as a senior, as the All-Big Ten second-team pick had to deal with injuries that cost his starting
mates, Sean Lee and Navorro Bowman several games out of the lineup. The young sophomore replacements leaned
heavily on Hull for leadership. He did not disappoint. He led the team with a career-high 116 tackles, ranking fifth in the
conference with an average of 8.92 hits per game. He registered 8.5 stops for loss, along with a pair of sacks and

SERGIO KINDLE
Outside Linebacker/Rush End
University of Texas Longhorns
#2
6:02.7-250
Dallas, Texas
Woodrow Wilson High School

OVERVIEW
Kindle arrived on campus with tremendous fanfare, as he was the prized recruit in the 2006 class. Among his best
attributes is his versatility, as he bounced back and forth between strong-side outside linebacker and the rush end position
during his time with the Longhorns. That versatility also saw him become the first NCAA player to ever be named a finalist
for the Ted Hendricks Award (nation’s top defensive end) and the Dick Butkus Award (top college linebacker). An added
bonus is his strong desire to play on the special teams.

Born in Los Angeles, Kindle moved to Texas shortly after he was born. He attended Woodrow Wilson High School, where
he earned Parade All-American honors and was a Parade Player of the Year finalist. He was also named the Parade AFL
Ironman (best two-way player nationally), adding the Old Spice Red Zone National Player of the Year Award to his
resume. He earned first-team All-American recognition from USA Today and was the only Texas player to earn All-State
honors on both offense and defense as a senior.

Kindle recorded 411 tackles and 55 stops behind the line of scrimmage as a linebacker, as he also competed as a running
back, rushing for 5,632 yards and 86 touchdowns over his final three seasons. He was the starting center on the
basketball team and also lettered in track, running in the 400m, 4x400-meter relay while also competing in the long jump.

Kindle graduated early and arrived on the university campus prior to 2006 spring drills. He took over the second spot on
the depth chart at strong-side outside linebacker and went on to play in 11 games as a reserve, posting 19 tackles (12
solos) with two stops for loss. He also excelled on special teams, recording eight tackles in that capacity.

He contributed as a reserve strong-side linebacker in eight games in 2007. He produced 29 tackles (19 solos), assisted
on a sack and had four stops behind the line of scrimmage. He also continued his stellar special team performances,
posting six tackles for the coverage unit.

In 2008, Kindle was a consensus All-Big Twelve first-team selection. He started 11 games - nine at strong-side linebacker
and the Baylor and Kansas clashes at defensive end. He recorded 45 tackles (36 solos), as he ranked third in the
conference and 21st nationally with 10.0 sacks. He also delivered 12.5 stops for loss, recovered two fumbles and
recovered another.

Kindle returned to the university for his final season, eager to show what he could do playing closer to the ball on the
defensive line. Taking over for Brian Orakpo at defensive end, he became the first player to be named a finalist for the
Butkus (nation's top linebacker) and Hendricks Awards (nation's top defensive end). A first-team All-American selection by
The Sporting News, he produced 58 tackles (39 solos) with six sacks, leading the team with 15.0 stops behind the line of
scrimmage while starting all 14 contests.

SEAN LEE
Middle/Outside Linebacker
The Penn State University Nittany Lions
#45
6:02.1-236
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Upper St. Clair High School

OVERVIEW
One of the most versatile Nittany Lions, Lee has experience at all three linebacker positions, but his leadership is also
another great asset.

From teaming with Paul Posluszny and Tim Shaw as a freshman while playing left outside linebacker, to dominating the
trenches with Dan Connor while lining up at middle line-backer as a sophomore, then shifting back outside to man the
right linebacker position as a junior, one thing was evident – Lee was the hardest hitter on the team.

His return to the lineup in 2009, this time as a left outside linebacker, saw him team up with Josh Hull and Navorro
Bowman to give Penn State three defenders that all ranked in the top seven players for tackles-per-game in the Big Ten
Conference. That trio combined for 295 tackles for a Nittany Lions squad that ranked sixth in the nation vs. the run (89.95
ypg), ninth in total defense (274.46 ypg) and third in scoring defense (12.23 ppg) in Lee’s final season.

A focused competitor, Lee is a playmaker who brings tremendous desire and tenacity to every snap. He is one of the
squad’s most personable and service-oriented members, participating in the THON Make-A-Wish program, student-
athlete reading program, Habitat for Humanity and the Pennsylvania Special Olympics State Summer Games, in addition
to other community service activities.

Before arriving at a school known for its renowned linebacker corps, Lee was the latest in a long line of outstanding
players who have played for head coach Jim Render at Upper St. Clair High School. A first-team Associated Press Class
AAAA All-State selection, Lee was the 2005 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette High School Male Athlete-of-the-Year and was
honored at the prestigious Dapper Dan Dinner in 2006.

He also was named to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Terrific 25 and played in the 2005 Big 33 Classic vs. Ohio. His team
combined to go 31-4 during his three years as a starter, including 11-1 as a senior. The safety and tailback ran for 1,240
yards and 21 touchdowns on 187 carries for a superlative 6.6 average and posted 95 tackles and four interceptions during
his senior season. He made 23 tackles and returned a punt 75 yards for a touchdown in a Western Pennsylvania district
AAAA semifinal game vs. Pittsburgh Central Catholic that season.

The outstanding athlete also excelled on the basketball floor, leading the Panthers to a 75-12 record in three seasons as a
starter. During his senior year, he averaged 21.2 points, 9.1 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game to lead his team to the
Western Pennsylvania district AAAA title. He is one of a select few athletes in the past 25 years to be named to the Post-
Gazette Fabulous 22 football team and the Fabulous Five basketball team. An outstanding student, he graduated from
Upper St. Clair with a 3.70 grade-point average.

Upon his arrival at Penn State in 2005, the coaching staff couldn't keep the talented Lee off the field, as he excelled on
special teams while understudying behind Paul Posluszny at left outside linebacker in 2005. A member of the Dean’s List,
he registered eleven tackles (6 solos) as a true freshman.

The Academic All-Big Ten Conference selection took over middle linebacker chores in 2006. Lee was instrumental in
helping the Penn State defense rank in the top 15 nationally in rushing (87.5 ypg, seventh), scoring defense (14.4 ppg,
ninth), total defense (284.5 ypg, 15th), pass efficiency defense (105.9 rating, 14th) and sacks (40, sixth tie). He recorded
90 tackles, good for third on the squad, with eight stops for loss, 5.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries, two forced fumbles,
one interception and two pass break-ups.

Lee had a tremendous junior season in 2007, ranking second in the Big Ten Conference with 138 tackles, trailing only
teammate Dan Connor, and giving Penn State just its third pair of century-busting tacklers since records began being kept
in 1969. He was selected a first-team All-American by Pro Football Weekly and earned second-team All-Conference
honors in a league that featured two of the three finalists for th
