Solomon (6-foot-3, 260 pounds) is rated as an average athlete, but all the scouting services say that he gets the most out of his ability, or, in scouting terms, he "has a great motor." Solomon missed the 2010 season with a foot injury, but came back to earn first-team All-Conference USA honors from Rivals and second-team recognition from the league's coaches. He had 24 career sacks at Rice, including 8.5 in 2011, and had over 200 career tackles.
