passion. Versatile to match up anywhere along the offensive line. Ryan

his career, and 12 ½ sacks in 2010. Marcell Dareus is built for power. Good
lower body strength. Can be a 4-3 tackle or a 3-4 end. Locks out and controls
blocker. Cameron Jordan plays in a 3-4 scheme that will serve him well on
the next level. Plays with leverage and good change of direction. Robert
Quinn’s game is speed and quickness. Did not play in 2010 due to violating
NCAA extra benefits rule. Jeremy Beal is an instinctive end who plays well
on his feet. Plays with good outside leverage and is tough to hook. Allen
