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

    11/21/20: Parsons did not opt back in for Penn State.

    9/5/20: 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. Prior to the Big Ten quitting on the 2020 season, Parsons announced he would not play and would start preparing for the NFL.




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

    11/21/20: Tryon did not opt back in for the Pac-12's pandemic-shortened season.

    9/5/20: 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, but needs refinement in run defense and to develop his pass-rushing moves. The selfish and foolish Pac-12 presidents and commissioner Larry Scott made the decision to cancel the 2020 season though, protecting their job security over considering the science that football players are more likely to die in a car accident driving to practice than from covid-19. Tryon is one of the players who is really hurt by this decision, as he opted to make the jump to the NFL even though he needed more developmental snaps.

  3. Dylan Moses, OLB/ILB, Alabama
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 233.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.62.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.
    View Ranking History

    11/21/20: After a slow first game, Moses has picked up his play and has been better for the Crimson Tide, producing a lot of tackles and defending the middle of the field well. Moses shows coverage skills and tackling ability, but his instincts have been just average this year, according to team sources. Reading his keys faster and showing more anticipation would help Moses.

    9/5/20: 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. Nick Bolton*, OLB, Missouri
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 232.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.69.
    Projected Round (2021): 2-3.
    View Ranking History

    11/21/20: Bolton looked bad against Alabama earlier this season, but he has played better since then. He has produced some good tackle totals although not a lot of splash plays this season.

    9/5/20: 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.




  5. Zaven Collins, OLB, Tulsa
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 256.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.78.
    Projected Round (2021): 2-3.
    View Ranking History

    11/21/20: To open the 2020 season, Collins was very good against Oklahoma State, recording three sacks and six tackles. He is big, quick, and a versatile athlete who displays some ability to drop into coverage. Team sources, however, believe Collins does not play physically enough and has average instincts.

    9/5/20: Collins has good height, weight and length to be an outside linebacker in the NFL. He was a solid run defender for Tulsa during the past two seasons. The senior needs to improve his pass-coverage ability and production for his draft stock to rise.

    View Ranking History

    11/21/20: In 2020, Ossai has improved week-by-week and has become a real presence in the Texas defense. He was all over the field to help lead his team to an overtime win over Oklahoma State. Ossai has pass-rush upside and plays with a good motor. Team sources say they see Ossai as a fit to be a 3-4 outside linebacker in the NFL.

    9/5/20: 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 an upperclassman.

    Projected Round (2021): 2-4.
    View Ranking History

    11/21/20: Rashed has made some stops in the ground game this year, but he hasn't made any splash plays yet.

    9/5/20: 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.

  8. Azeez Ojulari**, OLB, Georgia
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 240.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.74.
    Projected Round (2021): 2-4.
    View Ranking History

    11/21/20: Ojulari has been impressive for Georgia thus far in 2020. He has been a dangerous edge rusher and put good pressure on the quarterback. Florida left tackle Stone Forsythe gave Ojulari issues, and Ojulari should return to school to improve his ability to get off blocks before going to the NFL.

    9/5/20: After redshirting in 2018, Ojulari worked his way onto the field as a redshirt sophomore and flashed some ability for the Bulldogs. He could be better in 2020 now that he has some experience. Ojulari needs to show more pass-coverage ability and improve his production in run defense.

    View Ranking History

    11/21/20: Thus far in 2020, Stevens has held his own and has been a solid defender even though LSU's defense has struggled. 9/5/20: 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.

    View Ranking History

    11/21/20: Clark has been solid, if unimpressive, in 2020.

    9/5/20: 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.

    View Ranking History

    11/21/20: Florida's defense has struggled this seaosn, but Cox has been one of the few bright spots. He has made some big plays in the pass rush and has caused disruption off the edge. He could stand to improve his run defense for the next level. Cox should return to Florida for 2021 to develop before going to the NFL.

    9/5/20: 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.

    View Ranking History

    11/21/20: Malone has 59 tackles, 11 tackles for a loss, six sacks, a pass broken up and a forced fumble this season.

    9/5/20: 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.

    11/21/20: Roche has been solid for Miami in 2020. He has the look of a 3-4 outside linebacker for the NFL if he isn't too stiff.

    9/5/20: 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.

    11/21/20: Ogbongbemiga has been solid for Oklahoma State this season.

    9/5/20: 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.

    11/21/20: Thus far in 2020, Cox has been decent for LSU and has shown that he can handle the jump in competition.

    9/5/20: 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 who 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.

    11/21/20: In 2020, Johnson is showing some rush ability but limitations in the ground game. He could be more of a backup designated pass rusher defender. Johnson has not made an impact thus far this season.

    9/5/20: Johnson has played some defensive end for Texas A&M, but NFL advance scouts listed 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.

    11/21/20: Goode has three tackles, with one for a loss, this season, but California has only played one game so far.

    9/5/20: 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.

As a senior, it would help him to show more production in run defense as well as the ability to drop into coverage.

    Projected Round (2021): 4-6.
    View Ranking History

    11/21/20: Hayes started out the year quietly for Notre Dame before starting to play better over recent weeks. He looks like a rotational designated pass rusher for the NFL, but he may not have the ability to be a three-down starter.

    9/5/20: 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 a 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.

    View Ranking History

    11/21/20: Henry has been decent so far this season.

    9/5/20: 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.

    11/21/20: Williams is having a solid 2020 season so far.

    9/5/20: 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.

    11/21/20: Deng has five tackles so far in 2020.

    9/5/20: 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 as a pro. 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 additional edge ability.

    9/5/20: Werner was a solid defender next to Malik Harrison in 2019. Werner has good size and is strong at the point of attack. He needed an to improve his production and pass-coverage skills, but the Big Ten cancelled its 2020 season.

    11/21/20: Greene has been out of the lineup because he fractured his hip.

    9/5/20: 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 in 2019, 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 has a thick build and some quickness, but he needs to stay on the field and be productive as a senior.

His production in run defense has also improved, but Toney has to get stronger for the NFL. At his present listed numbers, he will have to move to outside linebacker.

Manac needs to improve his production as a senior, plus it would help him to impress at an all-star game or the combine.

    9/5/20: 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.

    9/5/20: 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.

    11/21/20: Oats is out of rehab, but it not playing this year. Head coach Mark Stoops believes that Oats will play again one day, and the program is rotating his number to a different player each week to honor Oats.

    9/5/20: Oats flashed as a sophomore and has the potential to rise in 2020. He showed nice speed and athleticism in 2019 with upside to be better as an upperclassman. In May of 2020, Oats was hospitalized with an "undisclosed serious condition," and after some time, he went to a rehabilitation facility. Thus, his playing availability for 2020 is unknown.
