With CFB right around the corner here is a preview for the upcoming defensive line class. If you like my breakdowns please follow my twitter @CollegeFB_Film, thanks!
First off this group of lineman is a special group. The big 3 of this group is Ed Oliver from Houston, Nick Bosa from Ohio St, and Rashan Gary from Michigan. These 3 are top the 3 players on my entire board to start this season. Ed Oliver in my opinion is a once in a generation talent on the interior line, his explosiveness/relentlessness is something you rarely see from the DT position. Nick Bosa in my opinion will be better than his brother and we all know how good Joey is. With Rashan Gary his athleticism is off the charts and potential is great, would like to see a little more production but you can tell he has all traits of dominating the NFL.
Top 5 DT
Ed Oliver - Houston
Rashan Gary - Michigan
Derrick Brown - Auburn
Dre'Mont Jones - Ohio St.
Raekwon Davis - Alabama
Getting into Brown, he translates as a run stuffer in the NFL, he has a elite first step and filling along the interior of the defensive line. Brown is a top 10 player on my board.
Jones has the best single pass rush move in the class, with his spin move. He can be a 7+ sack guy in the NFL. Some say he is a product of his counter parts in Ohio St but he is the guy opposing offenses double team, not Nick Bosa.
Davis might have the most potential of the top 5, he is developing as a pass rusher and is already solid in run d. Davis is sometimes inconsistent but I think his potential is off the charts.
Im not high on anyone on the Clemson D-Line. I think they all are overated especially Dexter Lawrence.
This is just my top DT's in this class to start the season with a little info on them, many other players I have been watching but these guys stick out.
My DE preview with more Nick Bosa will be out next week.
Thanks for all the support! Please leave feedback!
