(WIS) - Javon Kinlaw is continuing to garner attention during the preseason.

Kinlaw had 38 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, five pass breakups, three quarterback hurries, two forced fumbles, and a blocked kick during his junior campaign.
Kinlaw has also been selected to the Bednarik Award Watch List, which recognizes college football’s top defensive players, and the media’s All-SEC second team.
Also on the Outland Trophy Watch are Clemson offensive linemen John Simpson and Tremayne Anchrum. Both players also earned spots on the Preseason All-ACC Team this year.
