A three-year letterwinner ... Became Arizona’s sixth unanimous All-American with a stellar sophomore season in 2014 that earned him numerous national player of the year awards, including the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, the Rotary Lombardi Award and the Chuck Bednarik Award … Finished three-year playing career with 269 total tackles, 42.0 tackles for loss and 16.5 sacks … Tied for the school single-season record with 29.0 tackles for loss in 2014, while the 14.0 sacks that season were third-most.

He could make a late move up the draft board for teams who value elite production."- NFL.com
