For the Defense I will mainly focus on the Big-Name guys except Teo (overblown).

For DL and LB I will profile Dion Jordan, Margus Hunt, Alex Okafor, Arthur Brown of KSU, and The LSU duo of Sam Montgomery and Barkevious Mingo.

My rankings for the D-Line is as follows, remember this is based on film i’m not Mike Mayock and have inside sources. This is based on solely talent.

Top DT Star Lotelelei of Utah hopes to wow scouts after scare with his heart held him out of the combine

1. Star Lotulelei-University of Utah

2. Dion Jordan-University of Oregon

3. Alex Okafor-University of Texas

4. Sharrif Floyd-University of Florida

5. Margus Hunt-Southern Methodist Univerity

The Defensive Line Group in this year’s Draft is very deep and I have some names not usually mentioned in high regard. Star Lotulelei dominated the PAC-12 in his time at Utah regarded by many as the best defensive lineman in this draft. The heart condition held him out of the combine but if his health checks out, he’s still the best in this group.

I will have more on Oregon’s Dion Jordan but like most of the Oregon team he’s explosive and he’s a pass rusher. I see him being drafted in the top 10 like many others. Ignore the fact Oregon had an awful defense, he and Kiko Alonso were stars for that defense and they were enough to win a Fiesta Bowl.

Alex Okafor is a guy that sounds like a 1st round pick, he’s well coached and was paired with Jackson Jeffcoat at DE. As the season went on you saw more of him. Texas is a team that improved in his time once they got the running game in order.

Sharrif Floyd was a big time recruit in 2010, but I don’t see the hype of why he should go in the top three, but he’s a definite first round pick. I dont agree when people say this draft sucks, (its cause there are no QBs). NFL Scouts go on potential and I see why but when I think Floridas defense I think of S Matt Elam and LB Jelani Jenkins  before I think of Floyd. But he does stop the run but I’m sure if he can give you a rush in a 3-4 end position, I feel he’s a 4-3 DT .

Margus Hunt is being dubbed another JJ Watt. Wait what?? Ok I’m not on that bandwagon although I’m a fan. Remember Watt is a big guy well Hunt is 6’7 290lbs, (Pepper’s  Size), but he plays more like how Grant Winstrom and Bertrand Berry were. I know those are old names but they were guys who flourished in the run game. They were great athletes like Hunt who ran a 4.62 40. He did win a gold medal in track while still at Estonia.

When you watch the Draft also look out for some sleepers in this deep DLine Class Obviously look out DE Bjoern Werner of FSU and DE Ezekial Ansah of BYU, both are raw but I don’t see them being better than Hunt. Also watch for Brandon Jenkins the 2011 All-American from Florida State and William Gholston of Michigan State, both of those guys entered the 2012 season with High Expectations but an injury for Jenkins and inconsistency for Gholston cost them in the Hype Machine factor.
