As a true freshman at Towson in 2007, Yaky appeared in all 11 games as a reserve defensive lineman and tallied 15 tackles.
In 2008, he really began to make a big impression in the CAA as he started all 12 games at DT and made 27 tackles, 3.5 TFLs, recovered a fumble, and blocked a field goal attempt at Richmond.
In 2009, he again started in ten games and finished seventh on the team with 52 tackles. 11.5 of those were tackles for lost yardage, and he also added 2.5 quarterback sacks and one forced fumble.
In 2010, Yaky again started all 11 games, and racked up 55 more tackles, along with 13.5 TFLs, a sack and a hurry.
Strengths: Naturally strong. Fires off the line hard, and fights the double team. Decent hand usage. Gets a lot of penetration against CAA interior linemen, even with the double team. Solid against the run. Very experienced, and has proven to be very durable. Very nice person, and can be coached. Solid stamina and can play the whole game if required. Career mark of 28.5 TFLs from the DT position says a lot about his overall effort and effectiveness. He accomplished what he did without a great supporting cast around him, allowing opposing offensive lines to double team him constantly, and to scheme against him.
Weaknesses: Gets close to a lot of sacks, but doesn't get that many. Has not been tested by the top linemen in college football. Needs to add a move to his pass-rush package, and needs to set up linemen better and develop a scheme for doing so. Size is not ideal except for UT in the 4-3.
Projection: Solid late draft pick with a lot of heart and hustle."
