  1. Christian Barmore**, DT, Alabama
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 310.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.18.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-2.
    View Ranking History

    10/24/20: Barmore has played well for Alabama this season, showing the ability to be a dangerous interior pass rusher. Some team evaluators, however, feel that Barmore needs to improve as a run defender and become a more well-rounded player.

    Barmore flashed ability as part of Alabama's rotation in 2019. It was only his redshirt freshman season, so he could easily be primed to break out in 2020 or 2021. Barmore has good size with length at the point of attack to go along with quickness and athleticism. With his size and speed, Barmore is a dangerous interior pass rusher. He could be the next Alabama interior lineman who becomes an early-round prospect, similar to Quinnen Williams, Da'Ron Payne, Jonathan Allen and Raekwon Davis among others.

  2. Jay Tufele*, DT, USC
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 305.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.22.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.
    View Ranking History

    10/24/20: Tufele was a disruptive presence for USC in 2019, totaling 42 tackles with 4.5 sacks and a pass batted. His run defense was improved, and he looks like he has upside to improve. After redshirting in 2017, Tufele made an impressive debut for the Trojans in 2018, racking up three sacks with 23 tackles, 4.5 tackles for a loss and a blocked field goal.

    Tufele has the upside to grow and be better as he gains experience. Tufele announced that he will not return to USC and will enter the 2021 NFL Draft.

  3. Tedarrell Slaton, DT, Florida
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 343.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.6.
    Projected Round (2021): 2-3.
    View Ranking History

    10/24/20: Thus far in 2020, Slaton has played well, stuffing runs at the point of attack. He recorded 29 tackles with two sacks and a pass defended in 2019. Slaton played well to close out the regular season, but he was wise to go back for his senior year. Slaton did not produce a big stat line for the Gators in 2018, but the big nose tackle caused a lot of disruption and plugged a lot of gaps at the point of attack. He totaled 21 tackles with two for a loss on the year.

    Team sources have remarked how Slaton jumped out at them and was impossible to ignore while grading the Gators' 2019 NFL Draft prospects. For the NFL, Slaton projects as a heavy nose tackle.

    Projected Round (2021): 2-3.
    View Ranking History

    10/24/20: Thus far in 2020, Ray has been a solid defender for Alabama. Ray recorded nine tackles with a sack and forced fumble during his 2019 season. He went out of the lineup in September because of a foot injury that required surgery. He was wise to return to Alabama for 2020.

    While Quinnen Williams was the star of the Alabama defensive line in 2018, Ray flashed at times for the Crimson Tide and had some nice moments that year. Ray totaled 39 tackles with six for a loss, 2.5 sacks and two passes batted for the season. Ray could take on a bigger role as a redshirt junior and has upside to rise.

    View Ranking History

    10/24/20: Davis has been a solid run stuffer for Georgia this season. Davis is a heavy nose tackle who is tough to move at the point off attack. He could be a good fit as a zero-technique in a 3-4 defense. Davis showed more ability to make plays in the backfield in 2019 as a sophomore. He has upside to improve and rise as a junior and/or senior.

    Height: 6-5. Weight: 317.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.2.
    Projected Round (2021): 2-4.
    View Ranking History

    10/24/20: Wilson has been very disappointing this season, and some teams are projecting him to the third round or mid-rounds of the 2021 NFL Draft. He has not been impressive as a pass rusher, and some team evaluators feel that Wilson is just a run-stuffing nose tackle for the next level.

    Wilson totaled 44 tackles with five sacks, four passes defended and a forced fumble in 2019. He was a disruptive presence, showing strength, quickness and athleticism. Team sources said they were projecting Wilson to the second day of the 2020 NFL Draft had he decided to skip his senior year. Wilson had a decent 2018 season for the Seminoles as their best interior defender. On the year, he totaled 42 tackles with 3.5 sacks, one forced fumble, two passes batted and 4.5 tackles for a loss.

    10/24/20: Goldwire has played really well for Louisville this season, showing good ability to control his gap at the point of attack. He also has flashed some ability to contribute other pass rush. Goldwire is significantly improved over his 2019 and 2018 performances, having almost matched those seasons of production after only five games this season.

    View Ranking History

    10/24/20: Johnson has improved each year at Indiana, and as a junior, he was one of the best interior defensive linemen in the Big Ten. Johnson was a quality defender in the ground game while showing improving pass-rushing skills to get after the quarterback. If he can continue to up his pass-rush production, his draft stock could take off. Adding some weight and strength for the NFL would help him, but only if he doesn't lose speed as a result.

    10/24/20: The Kenosha, Wisconsin product broke out in 2019, showing quickness to get upfield and cause problems behind the line of scrimmage. Nixon wasn't even a full-time starter, but he still produced solid production for an interior defensive lineman. He could be a riser if he plays every down, and he could be even better now that he has some experience.

    10/24/20: Ferrell was a rotational defender for LSU with only three starts as a junior, but he flashed athletic ability with pass-rush potential and was a solid run defender. With Rashard Lawrence moving onto the NFL, Farrell should have been a starter as senior. However, he opted out of the 2020 season.

    View Ranking History

    10/24/20: Durden has had a quiet start to the 2020 season. He has good size to him with athleticism and quickness at the point of attack. Durden broke out as a redshirt sophomore in 2019, showing some pass-rushing skills and upside to be better as an upperclassman. If Durden can continue to get after the quarterback, he could rise. Having Marvin Wilson next to him to draw attention could help Durden produce a big junior year.

    View Ranking History

    10/24/20: Onwuzurike notched 45 tackles with two sacks in 2019. He was a solid defender for the Huskies, but he needs to improve his pass-rush abilities. In 2018, Onwuzurike had 34 tackles with 6.5 tackles for a loss and three sacks as one of Washington's primary replacements for Vita Vea. In 2017, Onwuzurike recorded 16 tackles with two sacks. Onwuzurike has upside to improve, plus he received good coaching from Jimmy Lake.

    View Ranking History

    10/24/20: Jones put up very little production 2019, but he is a heavy nose tackle and gap filler. Those players aren't expected to produce big stat lines. Entering the 2018 season, the Michigan State defensive tackle who seemed to be the program's top interior lineman was Raequan Williams, but Jones, then a sophomore, was the team's top interior defender. In 2018, he had 26 tackles with 4.5 tackles for a loss, two sacks, one pass batted and one forced fumble.

    Height: 6-2. Weight: 279.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.1.
    Projected Round (2021): 4-6.
    View Ranking History

    10/24/20: Odighizuwa has some quickness and athleticism at the point of attack. Over the past few seasons, he has shown an ability to make some tackles for a loss and sacks by firing into the backfield. However for the NFL, Odighizuwa needs to gain weight and get stronger to be a three-down starter. If Odighizuwa can't get bigger, he could be relegated to a designated pass rusher who only plays in obvious pass situations. At his listed weight, he is going to struggle with the mass and strength of NFL offensive linemen.

    If Odighizuwa's name sounds familiar, he is the younger brother of Owa Odighizuwa. Owa Odighizuwa was a third-round pick by the Giants in 2015, but he didn't stick in the NFL.

    View Ranking History

    10/24/20: Shelvin was a good run stuffer at the point of attack during LSU's dream season in 2019. The big nose tackle occupied blockers, often taking on double teams to help free up other defenders to make tackles. For the NFL, Shelvin would fit as a nose tackle in a 4-3 or 3-4 defense, but he'll come off the field for a pass rusher in the sub package. Shelvin opted out of the 2020 season to prepare for the 2021 NFL Draft.

    10/24/20: Redmond would be ranked higher, but he is a tweener end/tackle. He has the size of a defensive end, but plays tackle for the Sooners and shows the ability to fire by guards to put pressure on the quarterback. If Redmond can gain weight, he could be a tackle for the NFL who starts out his career as a designated pass rusher. If Redmond is maxed out, he will have to move to defensive end in a 4-3 defense for the next level. Redmond opted out of playing in 2020.

    10/24/20: Brown has been solid but unimpressive in 2020, although he did manage to injure himself while celebrating a sack. Brown has the athletic upside to rise as a junior. He showed improvement and took on a larger role as a sophomore. To rise, Brown needs to get better in the pass rush and put more pressure on the quarterback, particularly with some sack production as an upperclassman.

He is a run-stuffing nose tackle for the next level. Tonga is a solid run defender who has size at the point of attack. He will need to produce more as a pass rusher during his senior year to rise.

    10/24/20: Thus far in 2020, Truesdell has been decent but unimpressive for Auburn. Truesdell was a solid defensive tackle next to Derrick Brown during the 2019 season. Truesdell is a short, thick tackle. If he can improve his pass-rush production as a senior without Brown drawing double teams, that would help Truesdell to rise.

    View Ranking History

    10/24/20: Scott is a short nose tackle who is a solid run defender but has not shown much pass-rushing ability at Oregon. For Scott to rise, he needed to produce more in the pass rush as a senior.

  22. Esezi Otomewo*, DT, Minnesota
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 275.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.15.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History

    10/24/20: Otomewo flashed as a sophomore to earn a spot on NFL teams' preseason watch list. He has good length, but needs to get stronger and fill out his frame for the next level if he is going to line up inside. At his current listed measurements, he would fit best as a five-technique in a 3-4 defense, but even in that scheme, he should get stronger for taking on NFL offensive linemen. Improving his run defense and pass-rush potential would help Otomewo to rise as a junior and/or senior.

    Height: 6-1. Weight: 338.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.4.
    Projected Round (2021): 7-FA.
    View Ranking History

    10/24/20: Merrill has the body type of a heavy nose tackle, but he was a solid interior pass rusher for Arkansas State over his first two seasons. Merrill has a bad body and limited athleticism and quickness for the next level. He is a nose tackle to occupy blockers, but could have a hard time sticking in the NFL.

    10/24/20: Neal was a decent defender for three years prior to missing the 2019 season with an ACL injury. Neal needs to stay healthy and show some pass-rush ability as a senior in order to get drafted.
