  1. Cory Durden, 3-4DE, Florida State
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 312.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.2.
    Projected Round (2022): 2-3.
    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.

  2. LaBryan Ray, 3-4DE, Alabama
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 292.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.9.
    Projected Round (2022): 2-3.
    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.

    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.
