Gerald Hodges was the rock of the Penn State defense in both his junior and senior seasons.

During his junior campaign in 2011, the outside linebacker tallied 106 tackles (10 for loss) and 4.5 sacks.

His senior year featured 109 tackles (8.5 for loss), a sack and two interceptions. 

Based on these impressive numbers, Hodges was selected as a second-team All-Big Ten linebacker in each season. 

Hodges, who was a quarterback in high school, is an excellent tackler, strong in coverage and also a capable pass-rusher. He isn't an athletic freak, but he compensates with sensational instincts and fundamental, consistent tackling.
