Position outlook: Beyond Bradley Chubb Giants Patrick Omameh Jersey , most of the best potential pass rushers have question marks that could keep them out of the first round.

Bradley Chubb, 6-foot-4, 269 pounds, North Carolina State

Strengths: Rushes with a good combination of power and speed, and varied moves. Holds his ground well against the run.

Weaknesses: Not quite the elite athleticism of a player such as Myles Garrett, which could limit his upside.

Fact: Wore No. 9 at N.C. State the last two seasons for former Wolfpack defensive end and No. 1 overall pick Mario Williams.

Gone by: Pick No. 5 or 6.

Marcus Davenport, 6-6, 264, UTSA

Strengths: Long, fast and explosive athlete with maybe even more upside than Chubb.

Weaknesses: Instincts and reaction are a work in progress, limiting his speed and quickness.

Fact: Former high school sprinter who gained 30 pounds during his college career.

Gone by: Pass rush potential like this generally doesn’t last past top 15.

Harold Landry, 6-3, 252, Boston College

Strengths: Long arms, fast hands and nicely developed pass-rush moves.

Weaknesses: Needs to play stouter against run and could be limited to 3-4 outside linebacker.

Fact: Limited to nine games last season by an ankle injury.

Gone by: Top 35.

x-Arden Key Giants Cody Latimer Jersey , 6-6, 238, LSU

Strengths: Big-time pass-rush potential, combining size, range and agility.

Weaknesses: Production comes and goes, and he did not show much last season after returning from a shoulder injury.

Fact: Set LSU single-season record with 12 sacks in 2016.

Gone by: Day 2 though first round is definitely possible.

Sam Hubbard, 6-5, 265, Ohio State

Strengths: Strength and technique allow him to get rid of blockers effectively.

Weaknesses: Lacks fast first step.

Fact: Elite lacrosse player in high school who had a scholarship offer to Notre Dame.

Gone by: Top 45.

Others to watch: Lorenzo Carter, Georgia; Uchenna Nwosu, USC; x-Rasheem Green, USC; Kemoko Turay, Rutgers.


Position outlook: Could be no defensive tackles taken in the first 15 or 20 picks, but a handful or more between 20 and 45.

x-Da’Ron Payne, 6-2 Giants Kareem Martin Jersey , 311, Alabama

Strengths: Massive and powerful with quick hands. Run stuffer.

Weaknesses: His pass rush is almost all power.

Fact: Caught a touchdown pass against Clemson in a College Football Playoff victory last year.

Gone by: Middle of second round.

x-Vita Vea, 6-4, 347, Washington

Strengths: Athleticism and quickness for his size outstanding.

Weaknesses: Production and playmaking inconsistent.

Fact: Played some wildcat quarterback as a 270-pound high schooler in San Jose, California.

Gone by: Top 20.

x-Taven Bryan, 6-4, 291, Florida

Strengths: Explodes off the ball and can make plays up and down the line.

Weaknesses: Holding point of attack. Could end up sliding outside.

Fact: Son of a U.S. Navy Seal.

Gone by: Early second round.

Maurice Hurst, 6-2, 282, Michigan

Strengths: Relentless and quick off the ball and into the backfield.

Weaknesses: Undersized for an interior lineman, which could relegate him to certain schemes.

Fact: Diagnosis of a heart condition kept him out of the combine, but has been cleared since.

Gone by: Middle of second round.

Harrison Phillips, 6-4 Giants Nate Solder Jersey , 307, Stanford

Strengths: Broad, active and highly productive.

Weaknesses: Odd build. Top-heavy for an interior defensive lineman.

Fact: Led Stanford in tackles last season with 103.

Gone by: End of second round.

Others to watch: x-Tim Settle, Virginia Tech; Derrick Nnadi, Florida State; x-B.J. Hill, North Carolina State.


x-Roquan Smith, 6-1, 236, Georgia

Strengths: Excellent recognition, sideline-to-sideline range and athleticism, with coverage skills to keep him on the field on passing downs.

Weaknesses: A bit undersized and can get engulfed by big blockers – if they can get to him.

Fact: Won the Butkus Award as best linebacker in college football in 2017.

Gone by: Top 15.

x-Tremaine Edmunds, 6-5, 253, Virginia Tech

Strengths: Tremendous size and speed combination. Solid tackler.

Weaknesses: Needs some work on shedding blocks and his pass rush is more potential than well-developed skill.

Fact: Father was NFL tight end Ferrell Edmunds and two of his brothers also played for Virginia Tech.

Gone by: Top 15.

Rashaan Evans, 6-3 Giants Saquon Barkley Jersey , 234, Alabama

Strengths: Punishing hitter. Versatile linebacker, with speed to become an effective edge rusher.

Weaknesses: Aggressiveness can lead to missed tackles.

Fact: Grew up in Auburn, Alabama.

Gone by: Top 25.

x-Leighton Vander Esch, 6-4, 256, Boise State

Strengths: Long and rangy, and seemed to be in on every tackle for the Broncos.

Weaknesses: More power would be helpful, and some patience to cut down on over-pursuing.

Fact: In first year as a full-time starter was Mountain West defensive player of the year in 2017.

Gone by: Middle of second round.

Shaquem Griffin, 6-1, 227, UCF

Strengths: Has 4.4 speed that could lead to a move to safety, but was also a terror as a pass rusher.

Weaknesses: Griffin lost his left hand to amputation when he was young. It has proved to be no limitation throughout a stellar college career, but it could influence where he fits in an NFL defense.
