What about Jamie Collins? Almost identical height/weight. Could be had 2-3 rounds later.
"In ’11, he moved to the “Bandit” position, started 14 games and finished the year with 98tt/19.5tfl/8pbu/int and 6.5 sacks and again was named to the All-CUSA team. He is a criminal justice major who is scheduled to graduate in the spring of 2013."
"He aligns as a DE in their standard 4-2-5 Even look, moves around in 2- and 3-point stances in their Nickel 3-3-5 package and stands up as a “box” linebacker in their Dime Odd 3-2-6 arrangement. He is capable of rushing or dropping and can play either on the left or right sides."
"He has an angular, smooth-muscled build with long arms, athletic legs and a bubble. He has consistently gained weight during his career and should end up around 250 lbs as a pro outside linebacker. Athletically, he displays a base, balance and leverage."
