Biography

  • The franchise’s top draft choice in 2012, he held the starting role at the LOLB position opposite LB Clay Matthews before succumbing to a wrist injury that ended his rookie season in Week 6.
  • Earned first-team All-Pacific-12 recognition as a junior at USC in 2011, registering a team-high and career-best 9½ sacks. His sack total led the Pac-12 and was tied for No. 14 nationally.
  • Was one of six finalists for the Hendricks Award, which is given to the nation’s top defensive end, and was named second-team All-American by CBSSports.com.
  • Led the team with eight sacks as a redshirt freshman in 2009 on his way to earning Pac-10 All-Freshman Team honors from multiple publications.
  • Was a first-team All-USA selection by USA Today and a Parade All-American at Martin Luther King High in Detroit.
  • As a senior at King, posted a state-record 36 sacks as he helped lead the team to a 14-0 record and a state championship. Attended Detroit’s Mackenzie High for his first three seasons before the school closed.
  • Became the fifth first-round pick out of the University of Southern California in team history, joining Al Carmichael (1953), Ken Reuttgers (1985), John Michels (1996) and Matthews (2009).


Pro Highlights:

  • Top draft choice that made the difficult transition from playing defensive end in college to stand-up outside linebacker at the pro level. Opened five of the first six contests of his rookie season in 2012, collecting 29 tackles (18 solo) and two sacks from the LOLB position.
  • A true power player who showed little difficulty physically adjusting to the NFL before suffering a knee injury in Week 6 at Houston (Oct. 14), and later having surgery on a lingering wrist ailment that ultimately ended his season. Placed on injured reserve, Nov. 7.
  • Drafted by the Packers with the No. 28 overall selection in the first round. Was the first defensive player from Southern California to be selected in the first round of the NFL Draft since the Packers picked Clay Matthews with the No. 26 overall selection in 2009.
