Profile
Remains one of the top linebackers in the NFL after another excellent season in 2014 albeit one that saw him fall short of the gaudy numbers and NFL recognition he received in 2013. Was named a first team All-Pro at outside linebacker having been the first player at the position in NFL history to record six interceptions and six sacks in a single season yet was somehow overlooked for the Pro Bowl. Was the third player the Bucs took in the 2012 draft and the 58th overall selection. A second-team AP All-America selection, he won the Big Tenís Butkus-Fitzgerald Award as the conferenceís top linebacker.
