2020 NFL Draft EDGE class isn’t great according to Marcus Mosher
By Will Lomas
What should the updated board look like?
So before the combine everyone had a pretty good idea of who their top 8-10 EDGEs in this class were. Using Dane Brugler’s pre-combine top-10 EDGE list, I am going to update it with any notes based on what we learned from the combine.
1. Chase Young, Ohio State (did not test)
2. A.J. Epenesa, Iowa: Stock down
-Probably as bad as it could have gone without injury)
3. K’Lavon Chaisson, LSU (did not test)
4. Yetur Gross-Matos, Penn State: Stock up
-Tested very well in the jumps, but did not attempt the 40 or the 3-cone.
5. Terrell Lewis, Alabama: Stock up
-Another EDGE who tested extremely well in the jumps, but didn’t attempt the 40 or the 3-cone.
6. Jonathan Greenard, Florida: Stock down
-Average or below average in nearly every drill, so probably another stock down here.
7. Josh Uche, Michigan (didn’t really test)
8. Bradlee Anae, Utah: Stock down
-Tested worse than Greenard across the aboard which is brutal for his stock.
9. Curtis Weaver, Boise State: Stock up
-Not a great jumper, but did surprisingly well in the 3-cone and probably was a quiet winner from the week.
10. Khalid Kareem, Notre Dame (did not test)
That is how I see the combine affecting those pre-combine rankings and I think that is something we need to monitor throughout this process as we hear people rising and falling.
These numbers will change if they do better at their pro day, but overall this class took a pretty big hit from a bunch of three of the bigger names in the draft all disappointing with their testing.
Maybe it was the shift in time that changed everything and the pro days will give us a better snapshot of what these guys are, but if it is more of the same then you have to think that the Tennessee Titans look hard at avoiding the draft to fix EDGE and instead focusing on free agency.
