Notes:
First-Team All-SEC in each of the past three seasons...Posted 307 tackles, including 31.5 TFLs and 6.5 sacks during collegiate career...Recorded six interceptions as a Gator...A four-year starter who was the quarterback of the defense...Plays much faster than his timed 40-yard dash...Seemed to decline a bit toward the end of his college career...Is a standout tackler who wraps his arm...Made many ferocious hits at Florida...Was effective in coverage against tight ends in college...Distant cousin of NFL standout Takeo Spikes and plays a similar game...Was suspended for one game as a senior for attempting to gouge the eyes of a Georgia opponent...Does not have a non-stop motor, something NFL coaches prefer in a linebacker...Stock dropped over the last year.
