At the end of this day, you just really have to worry about yourself. You cant really control what happens with yourself or anyone else, so you have to take what happens and be happy youre in the NFL now and get ready to go to work.
Motor. Effort. Heart. Passion. A lot of the things I preach to my kids all the time. Desire. He has a big heart and you really can accomplish a lot when you have a player with a big heart.

Measureables: 4.88 second 40-yard dash; 1.70 10-yard dash. 2.72 20-yard dash. 4.11 20-yard shuffle. 6.89 three-cone drill. 28-inch vertical jump. 8-6 broad jump. Bench pressed 225 pounds 38 times. 565-pound squat. 30Ύ-inch arm length. 9½-inch hands.
Highlights: In his three years as a starter, Elmore racked up 25½ sacks for minus-163 yards during his career, ranking second in Wildcats history behind only Tedy Bruschi (52, 1991-95). Elmore led the Pacific 10 Conference in sacks, but still lost out on Arizonas defensive most valuable player award. Also, an All-Pac-10 second-team selection. Elmore garnered some recognition when the leagues coaches accorded him a second-team all-conference performer. He totaled 11 sacks for minus-67 yards in 2010, ranking ninth in the nation with an average of 0.85 sacks per game. He delivered a total of 33½ stops for combined losses of 196 yards. Started 36-of-61 games at defensive end for Arizona and recorded 128 tackles (76 solo).
Strengths: Nice take-off speed has a long first step and can accelerate at the top of his rush and close to the quarterback. Plays faster than his timed speed. Solid wrap up tackler. Good sack production. Very durable.
Weaknesses: Not strong at the point of attack and gets bounced by the double-team. Has very short arms struggles to disengage from blocks and wrap as a tackler. Inconsistent effort, intensity and focus. Developing eyes and instincts tends to freelance and play outside the design of the scheme.
Noteworthy: Majored in interdisciplinary studies. Twin brother, Cory, is a UA student and lineman whose medical condition forced early retirement. His hometown is Simi Valley, Calif. Finished with more than 10 sacks in each of the last two seasons. Redshirted his freshman season in 2006. Chose Arizona over six other BCS schools. Elmore played with defensive end Brooks Reed, who was the second-round draft choice of the Houston Texans.
