    View Ranking History

    7/13/20: Tufele was a disruptive presence for USC in 2019, totaling 42 tackles with 4.5 sacks and a pass batted. His run defense was improved, and he looks like he has upside to improve as an upperclassman. After redshirting in 2017, Tufele made an impressive debut for the Trojans in 2018, racking up three sacks with 23 tackles, 4.5 tackles for a loss and a blocked field goal. Tufele has the upside to grow and play better as he gains experience

    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

    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

    Projected 40 Time: 5.6.
    Projected Round (2022): 2-3.
    View Ranking History

    7/13/20: Davis is a heavy nose tackle who is tough to move at the point off attack. He could be a good fit as a zero-technique in a 3-4 defense. Davis showed more ability to make plays in the backfield in 2019 as a sophomore. He has upside to improve and rise as a junior and/or senior

    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
