    View Ranking History

    7/13/20: Durden has good size to him with athleticism and quickness at the point of attack. He had a breakout year 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

    7/13/20: 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 senior and has upside to rise

    View Ranking History

    7/13/20: Jackson had an impressive debut for the Trojans in 2019. He showed some pass-rush potential with a quality set of size and speed. Given his skill set, Jackson has the upside to improve his production as he gains more experience

    Projected Round (2022): 2-3.
    View Ranking History

    7/13/20: Dale flashed as a freshman, showing the ability to be disruptive. He could break out over the next two years and end up rising high for his draft class. With his skill set of size, speed and athleticism, Dale has a lot of physical upside

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

    7/13/20: Hutchinson had a breakout sophomore season for the Wolverines as a tough defender and flashed pass-rush ability. He has excellent size for the next level, where he could be a base end in a 4-3 or a 3-4 five-technique defensive end. Improving his pass-rush production could help Hutchinson to rise as a junior and/or senior
