Bio from NFLDraftCountdown.com:
Height: 6-0 | Weight: 243 | 40-Time: 4.50
An outstanding natural athlete...Has elite timed speed...Was extremely productive at his level with an astounding 43 tackles for a loss...Very strong...Also a top special teams performer and blocked 10 kicks in 2003 and 2004...Great potential.
Never played against top competition...Has very little experience...Extremely raw and is the definition of a long-term project...Can he handle the mental side of the game?...Did not have the type of amazing pre-draft workout that he needed.
Top JUCO recruit who committed to Kansas St. but did not qualify academically and instead opted for the pros...The physical tools are there but he is trying to make a quantum leap that few others have even dared try...Has a huge upside but won't be able to contribute for years...Interesting practice squad candidate.
