This is the 2013 NFL Combine Stock Report for the defensive linemen. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.


2013 NFL Combine: Stock Report - Defensive Linemen

Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU
Ezekiel Ansah was billed as a freak athlete, and he definitely lived up to that. Measuring in at 6-5, 271, Ansah ran a 4.63 40 with a 1.56 10-yard split. He also notched a 34.5-inch vertical. More importantly, Ansah was exceptional in the drills. Afterward, the NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah said that one team in the 15-20 range told him that they have no chance of landing Ansah. The BYU product will be a top-10 selection.

Tank Carradine, DE, Florida State
Tank Carradine was an impressive 6-4, 276 with 34 3/4-inch arms at the weigh-in. He won't be able to work out, but he gets a stock up for all of the positive buzz he has generated. There's some talk that if he checks out medically, he could sneak into the first round.

FEB. 25 UPDATE: Carradine continued to look good in Indianapolis. He recorded 28 reps of 225 Sunday. That's a pretty impressive number considering his arm length.

Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida
NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah has said that everyone has Sharrif Floyd in their top five, but I have to wonder if teams will be concerned about his arm length. Floyd had the second-shortest arms of all the defensive linemen (31 3/4 inches) at the Combine. On a positive note, Floyd (6-3, 297) measured in close to what he was listed at Florida. He was also as good on Monday as advertised. His 4.87 unofficial 40 was impressive, and he was dominant in the drills. He drew high praise from Warren Sapp. Floyd is considered a top-five prospect.

Johnathan Hankins, NT, Ohio State
Johnathan Hankins had one of the Combine's worst 40s, running it in 5.31. The 40 isn't a big deal for nose tackles, but Hankins' body looked very sloppy. Also, his 26 bench press reps were disappointing for a 6-3, 320-pound lineman.

Margus Hunt, DE/DT, SMU
Margus Hunt was a beast on the bench press Sunday afternoon. He tied for first among defensive linemen for 38 reps of 225 despite weighing just 277.

FEB. 25 UPDATE: Hunt continued his awesome Combine on Monday with a 4.60 official 40 and a 34.5-inch vertical. Hunt is very athletic, but as Scott Wright of DraftCountdown.com cautioned, Hunt looks like Tarzen but plays like Jane.

Brandon Jenkins, DE/OLB, Florida State
Brandon Jenkins was listed at 6-3, 260 at Florida State. He measured in at 6-2, 251, which is bad news for his draft stock. Jenkins is too small to excel in a 4-3, so he'll be limited to 3-4 schemes.

FEB. 25 UPDATE: Jenkins tallied just 18 reps on the bench, which is a low number considering his size and arm length (33 1/4).

Datone Jones, DE, UCLA
Ziggy Ansah and Dion Jordan drew all of the attention at the Combine, but Datone Jones had a great performance in Indianapolis. He ran an official 4.80 40 despite being 6-4, 283. Jones is very versatile, which will help him to possibly sneak into the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft.



Dion Jordan, DE/OLB, Oregon
Dion Jordan had a great weigh-in. Some thought he would hover in the 230s or low 240s, but he checked in at 6-6, 248. He also had decent arm length for someone of his stature (33 7/8 inches). Jordan will likely go to a 3-4 team, but it's not out of the question that a 4-3 squad could draft him because he has the frame to bulk up to close to 260. He's probably going in the top five.

FEB. 25 UPDATE: Jordan is a stud. He ran an unofficial 4.53 40 with a 1.57 10-yard split. He was so fluid in the drills and looks to be the draft's top exterior pass-rusher. With his shoulder not much of a concern, he'll be moving way up Tuesday's 2013 NFL Mock Draft.

Corey Lemonier, DE/OLB, Auburn
Corey Lemonier had a solid Monday in Indianapolis. He ran an unofficial 4.53 40 with a 1.57 10-yard split - identical numbers to Dion Jordan. Lemonier doesn't really have the 4-3 potential Jordan does - he's pretty much maxed out at 255 - but he may have sneaked into second-round consideration.

Bennie Logan, DT, LSU
Bennie Logan packed on 14 pounds of muscle since he weighed in for LSU. He's now up to 6-2, 309 with solid 34-inch arms. He's a borderline first-round prospect, so the weigh-in really helped his cause.

FEB. 25 UPDATE: Logan had a solid bench performance Sunday afternoon. He put up 225 pounds 30 times.

Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah
Star Lotulelei will not work out in Indianapolis because of a heart condition. The severity of this is still unknown, but it could very easily scare teams out of taking him in the top 10. He probably won't be there in my next 2013 NFL Mock Draft update.



Stansly Maponga, DE/OLB, TCU
Stansly Maponga is another defensive lineman who recorded a solid bench press total. He finished with 30 reps on Sunday despite weighing 256 pounds and boasting 34 1/8-inch arms.

Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB, LSU
While Dion Jordan added muscle since the end of the season, Barkevious Mingo did nothing of the sort. He was listed at 6-5, 240 at LSU, and he checked in at 6-4, 241 at the Combine. He and Sam Montgomery talked about their pay-for-play tactics during the media session, which is not going to please evaluators, especially in the wake of Bountygate.

Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU
There was nothing wrong with Sam Montgomery's weigh-in - he checked in at 6-3, 262 with 33 7/8-inch arms - but he gets a stock down because he told the media that he didn't try hard at times last year. His former coaching staff has already trashed him for that, so at least he was forthright about it. At this point, it'll be a major surprise if Montgomery is chosen in the first round. I have him in the middle of the second in my most recent 2013 NFL Mock Draft.

Damontre Moore, DE/OLB, Texas A&M
Damontre Moore is not off to a good start in Indianapolis. He totaled just 12 reps of 225, which is a pathetic amount. His arms are somewhat long (34 3/4 inches), but there's no reason why he shouldn't have been in the high teens at the very least.

FEB. 25 UPDATE: Damontre Moore's stock continues to drop. He ran a hideous 4.95 40 and then hurt himself on his second attempt. Making matters worse, a scout told Pro Football Weekly that Moore is "a mess off the field."



Devin Taylor, DE, South Carolina
Devin Taylor is a very long player. His height was already a known commodity (6-7, 266), but a pleasant surprise was his arm length, which was among the best of all the defensive linemen at the Combine. Taylor's arms checked in at an even 36 inches.

Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State
Bjoern Werner has been compared to Chris Long, but he's not the same type of athlete. Werner ran a 4.83 40 with a 31-inch vertical and a 9-3 broad jump. He didn't look very natural in the linebacker drills. Mike Mayock said that he has Werner in the 20 range, though he'll probably go earlier than that because this draft class is so terrible at the top.

Jesse Williams, NT, Alabama
Jesse Williams was expected to challenge for the Combine bench press record, but he came up way short. Despite weighing 323 and having 32-inch arms, Williams managed just 30 reps.

Trevardo Williams, DE/OLB, Connecticut
A couple of Connecticut players dominated the Combine on Monday. One was Trevardo Williams, who had one of the fastest official 40 times at 4.57. He also recorded a 38-inch vertical and a 10-4 broad jump.

1) Freestyle, no shot stick!!!2) All-Star Weekend3) Michael Jordan (among other player enndesrmeots)4) My Player type of game mode (Legendary)5) Accessories (Shoes, tatts, headbands, etc )6) Extremely Better Player & Coach Models (more realistic)7) Highlights (from the current game & other games at halftime/end of game) After game interviews9 &10) Easy on the steals!!! Don't make gameplay default all 50 s across the board i.e., close shots, midrange shots, 3pt shots, steals, blocks, etc. The gameplay should embodie the REALISM of the NBA.

Well, I hope to cut only the fat away, not the muscle and bone. I cut about 8 to 10% from the rough drtafs of SOUL OF SORCERY and SOUL OF TYRANTs, and I don't think they suffered for it.

Thought Richardson was more of a 4-3 DT. Eagles dumped Patterson because he didn't fit so now we're going to pick up a 6-3, 294 lb end with 4 sacks. Eagles took Cox last year who Richardson is like. Richardson isn't big enough to be the NT we're looking for either.

We need a big NT, cbs, dbs, sam, rush LB and that 3-4 DE is not hard to fill and shouldn't be a priority at all. We can get someone like Richardson elsewhere.

I had to stop looking at the mock after seeing Richardson at 4.

Stop reacting like a fan walter to every transaction. Eagles are undergoing a ton of changes.

Fisher, Jordan, Ansah, Milliner, Star are the guys for the Eagles. Not Richardson, not Floyd either with his trex arms.

They picked a couple of examples. I watched every game this year, mostly watching him play as there wasn't a lot to be excited about with Mizzou. He holds his own against the run and has a nasty streak. I also might add that there is not a single player in this draft that has a motor like he does.

Well considering that everyone was salivating over Keke Mingo yet you have his stock dropping. Are you on drugs? The kid was a freak at the combine, with natural fluid hip movement in coverage.

Did you not watch the clips Mayock and Sapp were going over of Richardson getting washed away in run support? Not exactly someone you want draft in a 3-4 defense.

I disagree. He would be better as a NT and the Chiefs used a first rounder on one of those last year. There are better 5-tech DE's in this draft and there certainly are guys as good later on in the draft. Besides, if KC takes another D-lineman in the first, there will be riots. Glenn Dorsey, Tyson Jackson, Poe all in the last few drafts.

They said it could have been from dehydration. Supposedly he lost 10 lbs in 3 days because of a busy schedule. If he checks out OK in the coming weeks he is still who I would take if I was Reid. Can't be blocked by one guy.

Should go first overall. Has the numbers, has the highest motor of anyone in the draft this year. He's going to be an All-Pro and the Chiefs need a proper 5-Tech DE.

Walt, no mention of Star's heart condition hear. I definitely think the top 5 just took a big hit. Moore with 12 reps, Star with the heart condition, the KC Cheifs apparently trading for Alex Smith. Add in Jones' medical red flags, and this draft just went all to hell.

Montgomery admits he didn't always play full speed:

Margus Hunt with 38 reps at 6'8, 277 lbs is straight beast.
