EDGE Rushers

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

1. Chase Young
College: Ohio State
Height: 6’5″, Weight: 264
Chase Young is comfortably the top prospect in the 2020 draft. He’s physically impressive and was a constant draw for double teams. His power gives him an intimidating bull rush and his athleticism makes it easy for him to win on the edge. He did noticeably struggle on RPOs and will need to improve his instincts in that regard.


2. AJ Epenesa
College: Iowa
Height: 6’5″, Weight: 275
It’s better to throw out AJ Epenesa’s combine numbers to appreciate what he brings as a prospect. He’s a highly productive rusher with a terrific set of moves. He’s capable of causing early throws even when double-teamed and has multiple games where he’s taken over. Epenesa will need to improve his read and recognition skills but has the upside to be reliable EDGE rusher in the NFL.


3. K’Lavon Chaisson
College: LSU
Height: 6’3″, Weight: 254
An upside pick with high character. K’Lavon Chaisson has a strong set of moves and does a great job switching things up — which is encouraging to see because he’s physically limited. The natural step in improving his game is increasing his strength, which should benefit him against more physical linemen.


4. Jonathan Greenard
College: Florida
Height: 6’3″, Weight: 263
An athletic pass rusher that relies on his elusiveness to win matchups. Greenard reads plays well and was efficient in stopping run plays or getting his hands up on rushes he lost. He will need to improve his move set because opposing linemen had little trouble stopping his spin moves.


5. Yetur Gross-Matos
College: Penn State
Height: 6’5″, Weight: 266
A high upside rusher with all the physical traits you want. Gross-Matos has a fantastic speed rush and can consistently beat guys on the edge. He will need to improve his ability to diagnose run plays and his set of countermoves are fairly predictable. But the production and tools are there to develop into a strong starter.
