2019 NFL Draft Prospect Rankings

Defensive Line

QB | RB | WR | TE | OL | DL | EDGE | LB | CB | S

1. Quinnen Williams
College: Alabama
Height: 6’3″, Weight: 303
A terrific prospect, Quinnen Williams has an array of positives that make him one of the top prospects this year. His power allows him to push over opposing linemen and he was in constant demand of double teams at Alabama. Williams also showed off impressive quickness and a nice swim move. He had little trouble separating from blockers and his great vision allowed him to make quick reads. It’s also worth praising his ability to maintain a steady effort as games wore on.

2. Christian Wilkins
College: Clemson
Height: 6’3″, Weight: 315
Christian Wilkins’s size and athleticism made him a headache for opposing linemen. Wilkins has great awareness and is constantly active throughout the game. When he wasn’t able to penetrate the line, Wilkins is consistent in getting his hands up to make passing difficult.

3. Ed Oliver
College: Houston
Height: 6’2″, Weight: 287
His size will be a concern for teams. But there’s no denying his play-making ability. Ed Oliver lived in the backfield thanks in large part to his speed and strength combo. Oliver’s a sure tackler and does an excellent job getting his hands up for few times he’s unable to get to the quarterback.

4. Dexter Lawrence
College: Clemson
Height: 6’4″, Weight: 342
Dexter Lawrence’s size is incredible and he’s capable of driving offensive linemen at will. Lawrence also has surprising quickness and has a great motor. His pass rush can be predictable and he can rely too much on his power to gain penetration which may limit his ability at the next level.

5. Jeffery Simmons
College: Mississippi State
Height: 6’4″, Weight: 301

Jeffery Simmons has a great set of moves. His swim move was impressive and his hand fighting allowed him to maintain separation. Because of this, Simmons regularly demanded double teams. I do wish he could’ve gotten more of an initial push for someone of his size.
