2017 DE Prospect Grades (FINAL)

Date:
April 24, 2017

A few quick notes on the DE group…

-- This is as deep a class of defensive ends as there has been in a while. There are elite physical specimens and high-end athletes as well as master craftsman/technicians at the position.

-- T.J. Watt and Samson Ebukam we see more as OLBs.

-- Most draft experts like/love Tarell Basham and Tanoh Kpassagnoh, and they look great at first blush. We just don't see 'it' in the data or on tape.

-- Derek Rivers had a great FCS career, but when I see him against better opponents I don't love what I see.

-- I like what I see with Deatrich Wise, on tape, but his data in our system is not favorable.
