Top 10 Bearcats: #4 Silverberry Mouhon

The Georgia native came into his own in 2013 and started playing at a level commensurate with his name, and he is still only a Sophomore.

When you describe great Defensive Lineman you think of adjectives like "fast, powerful, agile, high-motor, and creative". Take all those attributes and put it in a 6 foot 4 frame and you have Cincinnati defensive end Silverberry Mouhoun. Just as unique as his first name, Mouhoun skill-set carved opposing lineman to a team leading 9.5 sacks to go along with 12.5 tackles for loss.

Causing chaos in the backfield is his forte and the AAC better take notice in 2014. The second team all AAC defensive end has a lot to play for and tackles in the conference should be on alert. Not only are the bearcats contending for the AAC crown, but Mouhon has a chance to boost his NFL stock in to a top tier prospect. Look for Mouhon to build on a phenomenal opening season as a starter.

Mouhon has every chance to put his name into the conversation with Trent Cole, Connor Barwin, Walter Stewart, Anthony Hoke and Antwan Peek for the title of best Bearcat pass rusher. He has the potential to be as good, or better, than any of those guys. The only person who can stop him from getting there is himself.
