In 2009, Pagan made 54 tackles, including 11 TFL and four sacks. He also had 15 QB hurries, forced three fumbles, deflected five passes and intercepted two more. He returned one of those picks 85 yards for a key TD.

Wilkins said Pagan is a “great kid, sweet and a bit naïve,” and plans to shepherd him through the recruiting process.
