Of course, the Falcons are interested in his on-field attributes. In 2008, Etukeren was named to the All-patriot League second team after putting up 13 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks.

Born in Edmond, Oklahoma on May 10, 1987, Etukeren comes from a high-achievement academic family. His two brothers went to Stanford and Arizona State, respectively, and his sister attended Arizona. Etukeren carried a 3.33 cumulative grade-point average in operations management, with minors in marketing and theology.
