In 2003, Black attended Harper College (Junior college), near Chicago, where he tallied 88 tackles, 28 TFL, and 16.5 sacks before he decided to transfer to New Mexico.
In 2005, Black started his 10 games and was the second-leading QB rusher. He also recorded his first INT.
In 2006, Black was predicted by Mel Kiper, a celebrated NFL Draft analyst, as one of the top senior linebacker prospects in the country. He led the Mountain West Conference with 94 tackles, had an impressive 42-inch vertical leap on Pro Day, and solidified his position in the NFL Draft as a mid-round prospect.
In 2007, Black was drafted by Tampa Bay in the third round.
For the 2009-2010 NFL season, Black was slated to start at the strong side linebacker position in the new era of Buccaneers defense.
On November 13, 2012, Black was placed on injured reserve with a neck injury, and on March 14, 2013, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced on their official Facebook page that Black was being released due to a failed physical.
