Profile
Tragically died at just 26 in January 2010 from a heart ailment having just completed his first season with the Chicago Bears. Will go down as one of the biggest draft busts in franchise history having never lived up to his fourth overall pick billing. Was finally traded five weeks into the 2009 season to the Bears but failed to impress there either. Led the Bucs in sacks in 2008 and showed some promise during the second half of his rookie season. Scored a spectacular touchdown on an interception return against Chicago. Played four seasons at Clemson was named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year for recording 12.5 sacks.
