1. Georgia image Adam Anderson*, DE/OLB, Georgia
Height: 6-4. Weight: 226.
Projected 40 Time: 4.6.
Projected Round (2022): 1.
View Ranking History

7/10/21: Some NFL advance scouts had Anderson with the highest preseason grade of any player on their preseason watch list. That tells you a lot about what they think of Anderson's skill set considering he enters his senior year having only been a rotational player and never having been a three-down starter. In 2020 as a part-time designated pass rusher, Anderson was tremendous at putting heat on the quarterback, collecting 6.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and a pass batted. He only recorded 14 tackles for the season, however, because Azeez Ojulari played over him on run downs.

Anderson is tremendous pass rusher who produces quarterback pressure at an insane rate. Anderson looks like a bolt of lightning off the ball with his amazing first-step. Off the snap, it is as if he has been shot out of cannon as he explodes upfield with shocking speed. On top of being very fast, Anderson shows an uncanny ability to bend his long frame. The 6-foot-4, 226-pounder needs to get stronger and improve his run defense for the NFL, but he looks like he has the potential to be a lethal pass rusher who produces some big sack totals and makes a lot of game-changing plays to limit passing attacks.

2. Oregon image Kayvon Thibodeaux*, DE/OLB, Oregon
Height: 6-4. Weight: 250.
Projected 40 Time: 4.7.
Projected Round (2022): 1.
View Ranking History

7/10/21: Thibodeaux recorded 32 tackles, three sacks and three passes batted in 2020. He had a superb freshman season for the Ducks, doing an excellent job of getting after the quarterback and totaling nine sacks, 35 tackles, a forced fumble and three passes batted. It would help Thibodeaux (6-5, 242) to gain more strength, as he will need more weight to hold up as a run defender and to shed blocks from NFL offensive linemen. He has plenty of time to add weight and grow stronger over the next year.

3. Michigan image Aidan Hutchinson, DE, Michigan
Height: 6-6. Weight: 261.
Projected 40 Time: 4.75.
Projected Round (2022): 1.
View Ranking History

7/10/21: Hutchinson was excellent to open 2020, collecting 13 tackles and a pass batted before going down with an ankle fracture that required surgery. He broke out as a sophomore for the Wolverines as a tough defender who flashed pass-rush ability. In 2019, he had 68 tackles with 4.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.

Hutchinson has good size for the next level in that he could be a base end in a 4-3 or a 3-4 five-technique defensive end. Improving his pass-rush production would help Hutchinson, but he is a phenomenal run defender who flashes an ability to get to the quarterback. He is quick at the point of attack and causes a lot of disruption behind the line of scrimmage.

Projected Round (2022): 1-2.
View Ranking History

7/10/21: Gaye has never put together a big season of production, but he has an excellent skill set and could break out in 2021. In 2020, he recorded 32 tackles with two sacks, a forced fumble and an interception. Some of the NFL advance scouts have a high preseason projection on Gaye.

View Ranking History

7/10/21: Jackson played well in 2020, recording 20 tackles, two sacks and an interception. He was more disruptive than the numbers illustrate. Jackson (6-4, 275) had an impressive debut for the Trojans in 2019. He showed some pass-rush potential alongside quality size and speed. With his skill set, Jackson has the upside to improve his production as he gains more experience.

7/10/21: Barno has some serious speed with a frame to get bigger as he ages in the NFL. Barno broke out in 2020, recording 6.5 sacks with 43 tackles, two forced fumbles and two passes batted. He could be even better now that he has a year of experience, and NFL advance scouts were impressed with his 2020 tape.

View Ranking History

7/10/21: Thomas enjoyed a breakout 2020 season, racking up 8.5 sacks with 32 tackles, 13 for a loss, two passes defended and one forced fumble. It was a big jump from his underclassmen years as a backup. Thomas has quality size to him to go along with speed and athleticism. Now that he has a year of experience, Thomas could be even better in 2021 and rise for the 2022 NFL Draft.

View Ranking History

7/10/21: Over the past two seasons, Gunter was a dangerous edge rusher for the Chanticleers. He broke out in 2018 with 49 tackles and five sacks, but transferred to N.C. State after the season. Gunter was forced to sit out the 2019 season before transferring back to Coastal Carolina for 2020. In 2020, he was even better than his sophomore year, recording 58 tackles with 6.5 sacks, one interception, one pass defended and a tremendous six forced fumbles. Gunter has quality size to be an edge defender in the NFL.

7/10/21: In limited action because of a lot of cancellations in 2020, Smith was solid. He started slowly, but he was coming alive in the final regular-season games for Ohio State. He made the right decision for his player development to go back to the Buckeyes for 2021. Smith needs to become a more consistent pass rusher this coming season.

View Ranking History

7/10/21: Clemson played well for the Aggies in 2020, showing some ability to get after the quarterback. He could rise as a senior if he can leverage his experience to build off his four-sack junior year. Clemons has quality size with some quickness and athleticism on the edge.

Projected Round (2022): 2-4.
View Ranking History

7/10/21: Malone was a dangerous quarterback hunter over the past three seasons for the Hilltoppers. Along with getting after the quarterback, Malone was a solid pursuit run defender, providing a lot of tackles for his defense. In the NFL, Malone could be too undersized to play defensive end and might be better off as a 3-4 outside linebacker.

View Ranking History

7/10/21: Enagbare started to make his presence felt as a sophomore, but showed real improvement as a pass rusher during his junior season. He totaled six sacks, three forced fumbles and 30 tackles for 2020. In 2021, it would help him to continue to improve as a rusher while adding strength to be a tougher run defender.

Projected Round (2022): 3-5.
View Ranking History

7/10/21: White's 2019 tape put him on the radar of advance scouts because he was a tough run defender for the Monarchs with 62 tackles. In the pass rush, White flashed with 3.5 sacks, and he has upside to develop as his experience grows. That was White's first season on the defensive line as he played tight end in 2018. Old Dominion didn't play football in 2020 because of the pandemic.

View Ranking History

7/10/21: Ebiketie impressed NFL advance scouts with his 2020 performance while playing for the Temple Owls. He totaled 42 tackles with four sacks. For the NFL, Ebiketie is undersized to be a defensive end and probably would fit best as a 3-4 outside linebacker.

18. Kentucky image Joshua Paschal, DE, Kentucky
Height: 6-2. Weight: 270.
Projected 40 Time: 4.85.
Projected Round (2022): 3-5.
View Ranking History

7/10/21: Paschal was a tough competitor in the ground game in 2020, but he did not produce much in the pass rush. He was wise to go back to school. Paschal needs to improve his pass-rush production as a senior. He could be a tweener defensive tackle/end, and he should probably gain weight to play on the inside as a pro.

aschal does have a thick build with strength for a defensive end. He flashed more pass-rush ability in 2019 and 2017. Paschal lost his 2018 season to fighting malignant melanoma, but after beating cancer, he returned to the field in 2019 to put together a quality year for Kentucky.

7/10/21: Thomas contributed somewhat in the pass rush in 2020, but he did not produce well in run defense. He follows a trend of undersized edge rushers from Clemson that includes the likes of Vic Beasley and Shaq Lawson. Thomas was buried on the depth chart behind Clelin Ferrell and Austin Bryant prior to 2019. Thomas could be better in 2021 now that he has more starting experience.

View Ranking History

7/10/21: Stills showed pass rush potential in 2019 when he recorded seven sacks for the Mountaineers. In 2020, he improved as a run defender, upping his stops from 23 to 35, but his pass rush was not as good with only two sacks on the season. Stills needs to improve in both phases to rise for the 2022 NFL Draft.

View Ranking History

7/10/21: Anthony was a backup in 2018 and 2019 before earning playing time as a junior in 2020. He totaled 5.5 sacks with 24 tackles in a solid debut. Anthony will need to increase his pass-rush production and show improvement as a run defender to rise. He should benefit in 2021 from Ali Gaye commanding attention across from him.

View Ranking History

7/10/21: Johnson flashed some pass-rush ability in 2020, but he also illustrated limitations in the ground game. He could be more of a backup designated pass-rusher in the NFL. Johnson was wise to go back to school and improve before going to the next level.

Johnson contributed some pass rush in previous years, so he could rise now that he has some starting experience, plus he has a good end in Michael Clemons drawing attention on the other side. Johnson's best fit in the NFL could come as a 3-4 outside linebacker.

7/10/21: Charlton was a solid defender for Central Florida in 2020. He decided to transfer to Mississippi State after the season. Charlton has the ability to be a capable edge defender, but needs to get stronger. He also has to up his pass-rush production with the Bulldogs.

7/10/21: Butler put together quality production in his three games of 2020. He was wise to go back to school for the 2021 season. Butler had a solid sophomore season, and that landed him on the radar for the NFL advance scouts. Butler needs to improve his pass-rush production and grow stronger for the next level.
