The combine will be important for him. I see that as a huge reach for him and would be happy with him in the 5th. Here's ESPN's Draft Profile.
"2008: (7/0) 3-1-1 2009: (13/13) 41-8-5 2010: (12/12) 48-6.5-4 Career: 1PBU 1 FR 1FF "
Above average height and slightly below average bulk for a defensive tackle prospect. Excellent size for a 3-4 defensive end prospect. Timed speed is a concern but doesn't hinder him on film.
Three-year starter that injured neck against Syracuse in 2010 but didn't miss any time.
"Hard worker that's matured during his time at Cincinnati. Reportedly doesn't have a relationship with father and estranged from his mother. Moved out of stepfather's house in high school. Moved around before moving in with the family of childhood friend Logan Hoppel who is the cousin of former Bearcat Adam Hoppel. One of the reasons he chose Cincinnati over Ohio State, Michigan State and West Virginia. Versatile player that lined up at defensive end, defensive tackle and nose tackle in Cincinnati's scheme. "
Versus Run: 2
Stout for size and rarely gives ground one-on-one. Above average pad level especially considering height and flashes the ability to anchor against double teams. Flashes the ability to stack and shed blocks in time to make play in the backfield. Above average balance and tough to knock off course with angle blocks.
Pass Rush: 2
Gets under linemen and drives them back to the quarterback. Flashes effective rip and swim moves. Does an excellent job of keeping head up and tracking quarterback while working upfield. Gets hands up when sees quarterback start throwing motion. Average at best closing speed and can be a step late getting to the quarterback. Moves laterally well enough to execute line stunts but not going to shake many offensive linemen with side-to-side moves.
Average first-step quickness and may not have as much success shooting gaps at the next level. Hands are quicker than feet. Effective hand fighter that shoots hands inside and controls blockers.
Relentless would be an overstatement but an above average motor and makes plenty of effort plays. Fought through a triple team to force an intentional grounding in the fourth quarter of the 2011 Pittsburgh game. Hard nosed player that doesn't back down and plays with a bit of an edge.
