Drafted 26th in the 2nd Round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals
Highly-productive end with a non-stop motor who gives Mizzou one of the top DEs in the SEC

Made one of the plays of the season against Toledo (Sept. 7), returning an interception 70 yards to put Mizzou up 24-9 in the 3rd quarter.
Despite joining the team late due to clearinghouse issues, still was able to provide a nice impact, playing in all 12 games (primarily on special teams) and made 10 tackles while forcing one fumble in all
Was a major performer on various special teams units, and helped clear the way for return man Marcus Murphy on each of his record-setting three punt return touchdowns on the season
