  1. Micah Parsons*, OLB/ILB, Penn State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 245.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.7.
    Projected Round (2021): 1.
    View Ranking History


    6/27/20: Parsons collected 109 tackles with five sacks, four forced fumbles and five passes defended in 2019. He was always around the ball and produced some splash plays for Penn State. Parsons broke into the starting lineup as a true freshman and showed a lot of upside to develop into an intriguing player. For 2018, he totaled 83 tackles with five for a loss, 1.5 sacks and two forced fumbles. Parsons has good size and instincts. Sources from multiple teams said Parsons jumped out at them and some believe he could end up being a high first-round pick




  2. Joe Tryon*, OLB/DE, Washington
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 262.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.73.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.
    View Ranking History


    6/27/20: After serving as a backup during his freshman season, Tryon broke out in 2019 as one of the top pass-rushers in the Pac-12. He totaled eight sacks with 41 tackles and one pass batted on the year. Tryon has a lot of upside and could be a player who develops well under Jimmy Lake.

    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.
    View Ranking History


    6/27/20: Alabama has been a factory for linebacker talent, and Moses will keep that tradition alive for the 2021 NFL Draft, provided he can stay healthy. Team sources were really excited about seeing him in 2019, but a torn ACL in training camp ended his season before it started. Some sources think that if Moses had entered the 2020 NFL Draft, he still would have been an early-rounder despite the injury. They were very impressed with his performance in 2018, when he recorded 86 tackles, 10 for a loss, 3.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one pass batted while rotating with other linebackers.

  4. Quincy Roche, OLB/DE, Miami
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 235.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.69.
    Projected Round (2021): 2-4.
    View Ranking History


    6/27/20: Roche decided to transfer from Temple following the 2019 season and landed at Miami. Over three seasons in Philadelphia, he totaled 26 sacks.

    Roche has created a buzz in the scouting community, and scouts feel he will get bigger. Team evaluators really like his initial explosion off the snap and how he closes on the quarterback. They feel he will get develop as he ages and grows in a pro strength and conditioning program.

    One team source said they had graded Roche as a fourth- to fifth-rounder, but three others said Round 3 and one said third- to fourth-rounder. However, Roche could rise if he works out well. There are a few issues that keep teams from grading him in the early rounds, and the most cited one is lower body stiffness. Source feel there is a lack of lower body strength and believe he doesn't play hard all the time. Thus, Roche could improve his grade if he gets stronger in the lower body while also showing an improved motor in 2020.

    View Ranking History


    6/27/20: Ossai earned a starting spot for the Longhorns in 2019 and had a breakout sophomore year. He made some big plays in pass defense, getting after the quarterback and creating a number of splash plays. If Ossai can build on his sophomore season, he has the potential to be a riser as a junior and/or senior.

  6. Hamilcar Rashed Jr., OLB, Oregon State
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 236.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.74.
    Projected Round (2021): 2-4.
    View Ranking History


    6/27/20: Rashed was a dangerous edge rusher and one of the most prolific quarterback hunters in college football during the 2019 season. As a run defender, he showed improvement on the edge. Rashed should add weight to his frame to fit as a 3-4 edge rusher in the NFL. He is too undersized to play 4-3 defensive end, so he would have to be a Sam - strong side - linebacker who helps in passing situations.

  7. JaCoby Stevens, OLB, LSU

    View Ranking History


    6/27/20: Stevens was good defender for the Tigers in 2019, contributing in run defense and pass coverage in the middle of the field. LSU plays Stevens as a roving safety, but NFL advance scouts listed him as an outside linebacker for the next level. Given his size and speed, he will have to move to linebacker for the NFL, where he could be fit as a Will - weak side - linebacker in a 4-3 defense.

    6/27/20: Clark is projected to be a replacement for Jacob Phillips as an inside linebacker for LSU. With his size and speed, Clark could continue the LSU tradition of strong linebacker play. He flashed as a rotational backup and in practice, so the NFL advance scouts have Clark on their preseason watch list for the 2021 NFL Draft.

    6/27/20: Cox was supposed to be a key edge defender at Georgia, but during August of 2019, he transferred from the Bulldogs to rival Florida after Georgia kicked Cox off the team. He had a misdemeanor marijuana charge during that offseason. As a freshman for Georgia, he was a backup and recorded 20 tackles and a sack. Cox is said to have a big-time skill set, so he could rise high with a breakout year as the Gators' replacement for Jon Greenard.

    6/27/20: Malone provided a lot of big plays in the backfield during the 2019 season with a tremendous 21 tackles for a loss and 11.5 sacks. It was a big jump over his sophomore year, and Malone needs to stay consistent with splash plays to rise as a senior. Considering his size, Malone will have to be a more traditional linebacker in the NFL and not a full-time edge rusher, so showing pass-coverage ability would help his stock for the 2021 NFL Draft.

    6/27/20: Bolton showed some nice pass-coverage skills as a sophomore, making plays on the ball for Missouri. He was also a solid tackler in the ground game and showed the instincts to be around the ball. With a year of starting experience, Bolton could be better as an upperclassman. His height and length limitations could hurt him with evaluators.

    6/27/20: Ogbongbemia was a good run defender and dangerous blitzer during the 2019 season. It was his first season as a starter, so Ogbongbemia could be even better as a senior. During his first two seasons, Ogbongbemia was a standout special teams player, so he brings added value for fourth downs and kick units for the NFL. It would help Ogbongbemia to show improvement in pass coverage in 2020.

    6/27/20: Cox was an FCS All-American with North Dakota State, and he has transferred to LSU for his senior season. Cox was an instinctive defender whp racked up a ton for tackles for the Bison. He was a leader on the defense, helping North Dakota State to win three FCS National Championships. Cox could really rise if he makes a seamless jump in the SEC, which is the closest thing the NFL has to a minor league.

    6/27/20: Johnson has played some defensive end for Texas A&M, but NFL advance scouts list him as an outside linebacker prospect for the next level. Given their inclination to do that, it leads one to believe that Johnson is smaller than his listed numbers, which is so often the case with players from big-time programs. Johnson contributed some pass rush as a sophomore, so he could rise now that he has a year of starting experience. His best fit in the NFL could come as a 3-4 outside linebacker.

    6/27/20: Goode was a dangerous edge rusher for California as a junior, recording 9.5 sacks. He also was a decent run defender and showed the ability to cause problems behind the line of scrimmage. Goode is very undersized to be an edge rusher at the next level, so it would help him to show the ability to play traditional linebacker assignments like pass coverage and run defense.

    View Ranking History


    6/27/20: Hayes had six tackles and a sack in 2019 before a torn labrum ended his season early. He decided to take a medical redshirt and return to Notre Dame for 2020, which was the wise decision.

    Hayes totaled 31 tackles with five tackles for a loss, one pass batted and two sacks in 2018. He flashed some serious speed and edge-rushing ability, and he was excellent in the 2018 season opener against Michigan, putting a lot of pressure on the quarterback. After that though, Hayes had a lot of quiet games.

    According to NFL teams' 2018 preseason data provided by team sources, Hayes checked in at 6-foot-3, 260 pounds with 32.5-inch arms, 9.5-inch hands and a 78.38-inch wingspan. They had him running the 40-yard dash in 4.70 seconds. Hayes totaled 30 tackles with three sacks as a sophomore. He has upside to do more as a senior.

    6/27/20: Henry was the starting inside linebacker for Ole Miss in 2019 and was a solid run defender for the Rebels. The senior needs to improve his pass-coverage skills, but considering he is a junior college product, there is reason to believe that Henry will play better now that he has a year of experience. While Henry plays on the inside for Ole Miss, NFL advance scouts placed him as an outside linebacker for the next level. That makes sense given his lack of length and height.

    6/27/20: Williams did a nice job of blitzing the quarterback off the edge in 2019, and he showed some nice ability to get pressure on the signal=caller. The senior needs to improve his ability to drop into coverage and be a more productive run defender. Similar to teammate Lakia Henry, Williams is a junior college product who could be better in his second season with Ole Miss.

    6/27/20: Hines made a solid return to the field in 2019 after missing the previous year with an injury. He was banged up from the start of 2018 and did not last long before a lower leg injury ended his season. Hines had a nice debut as a freshman. The junior has a good skill set, so if he can increase his production, he could be a riser for the 2021 NFL Draft.

    6/27/20: Deng plays inside linebacker for California but NFL teams list him as an outside linebacker. Unless his listed numbers are vastly exaggerated, he probably will fit best as a 3-4 outside linebacker. After coming to California from the junior college ranks, Deng had a productive 2019 season and was a solid run defender. It would help to rise if he showed edge ability as a senior.

    6/27/20: After a productive sophomore season, Greene must have landed in the dog house of the coaching staff, because he was a backup at the beginning of his junior year. After three games, Greene regained his starting spot, but he was not as productive as he was in 2018. Perhaps Greene was dealing with an undisclosed injury. Greene had a thick build and some quickness, but he needs to stay on the field and be productive as a senior.

    6/27/20: Hines does not have big production, but NFL advance scouts put him on their preseason watch list. As a senior, Hines needs to increase his pass-rush production and grow stronger. Going to a top bowl game and playing well there would help Hines' stock for the 2021 NFL Draft.

    6/27/20: Manac put together modest production over the past two seasons, but he also showed enough of a skill set that the NFL advance scouts put him on their preseason watch list. Manac needs to improve his production as a senior, plus it would help him to impress at an all-star game or the combine.

    6/27/20: Williams has some speed and was a solid outside linebacker for Wake Forest in 2019. As a senior, he needs to make more plays in pass coverage while also adding weight to get stronger for the NFL.

    6/27/20: Fayad was a solid edge rusher for Western Michigan in 2019, putting good heat on the quarterback and creating some splash plays. Fayad needs to improve his production as a run defender and create more plays in pass coverage to help himself for the 2021 NFL Draft.

    6/27/20: Similar to teammate Anthony Hines III, Hansford missed the 2018 season with an injury but was back in 2019. Unlike Hines, Hansford has not had a season of solid production yet for the Aggies. He needs to earn a full-time role and be productive to rise with teams.
