    Nick Bosa (JR) 6'4" 265 Ohio State. A dominant player, projected to maybe be the first player taken in the draft. He had 8.5 sacks last season with 16 TFL's.

    Sutton Smith (JR) 6'1" 237 Northern Illinois. MAC defensive player of the year. Broke NIU's sack and TFL single season records. He had a amazing season and is very fast off the edge. A former high school RB showed off his speed taking a fumble to he house last season.

    Zach Allen (SR) 6'5" 285 Boston College. One of 2 DL to have 100 total tackles nationally. Added 6 sacks. Should be a 1st rounder next year.

    Chase Winovich (SR) 6'5" 253 Michigan. Very productive player with 79 tackles, 18 TFL's, and 8 sacks. Should be in for another big year and go in the early rounds.

    Greg Gaines (SR) 6'2" 313 Washington. He was 2nd team All Pac-12 after being honorable mention the year before. A big time force for the huskies.

    Wow, checking out that highlight of Sutton Smith, he's a defensive end who runs like a defensive back!

    Very solid crop of D-Lineman! Bosa Top 5 (see brother Joey) ; Zach Allen 1st Rounder in Top 20 for sure! NT-Gaines & DE/OLB Winovich could go in the 2nd Round...as well as former RB Sutton Smith who projects as OLB in NFL....remember following him out of HS hoping he'd stay at RB. He sure has found his niche as an explosive playmaker on Defense!

    Ryan Bee (Sr) 6'-7" 282 Marshall ....Emerging on the NFL Radar....2nd Team Conference USA all-conference team ; 51 tackles, 7.5 tackles for a loss, 5.5 sacks, one pass deflection, one blocked kick ; 10 QB hurries
