Now that the reality has set in and Glen Dorsey really isn't an Oakland Raider, who's out there for the 2009 class?

A name to keep an eye on is Ernest "Mick" Williams from Pitt. He is very explosive and should have a huge year. I don't know if he would come out early but the guy is being compared to Warren Sapp. The only concerns with him have been tiny injuries. Last year was his first year healthy and he got better every single game. He looked great in spring ball. I am not saying he is Warren Sapp or a 1st round pick just yet but he is a guy to keep an eye on.

Fili Moala is the top DT next year and a likely top 10 pick, hell I think McShay even had him going first overall in a mock.

I'm not sure there's another 1st round senior but there are a lot of guys in the first day mix and someone could easily step up. Keep an eye on Terrance Taylor, Jeff Owens, Marlon Favourite, Vance Walker, Roy Miller, Demonte Bolden, BJ Raji and Jerry Peria.

However, juniors Senderrick Marks, Al Woods and Demarcus Granger are all likely 1st rounders if they declare.

Next years DT class looks like it could shape up to be as good at the OT class next year. It will certainly be interesting to see how those two (technically as many as 5) positions perform as the year goes on. Right now though, I say the OT class has the DTs beat.

I really liked the little I got to see of Peria Jerry. Big Terrence Taylor fan as well.

Also I think Sen'Derrick Marks is overrated to an extent. He definitely played well last year, but most of it was at DE, seeing him as a top 5/10 pick in some mocks as a DT really doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I understand it's a projection, but really it's too much of a projection for me.

Georgia has two DTs that could come out this year that are VERY good in Jeff Owens and Geno Atkins. I'm inclined to say Geno might stick around another year but he could definitely be a 2nd-3rd RD pick if he came out this year. I really like him a ton, he is very powerful and has some crazy quickness. He is a big time disruptor in the middle.

I have to say that I've been mildly surprised by the Fili Moala love flying around. There was never any doubt when I was watching USC that Ellis was the far better player, but I continue to see him projected to go even higher than Sedrick did.

I don not like Fili Moala, the athleticism isn't there. Ha has stiff in the hips and doesn't have much balance or flexibility. His motor is very inconsistent. He lacks explosion when the ball is snapped. His production is simply average, especially considering he was on the same line of Lawrence Jackson and Sedrick Ellis. He has an unimpressive overall skill set IMO.

I've got my eye on Vance Walker for the Colts. Hopefully I'll get to see him play quite a bit this year.

06-18-2008, 02:50 PM
imo, Vince Oghobaase is the top DT prospect heading into 09. He's got great size at 6'6 310. He can play the NT in the 4-3 and the DE or NT in the 3-4. He is strong and quick but has the production to back it up. As a sophmore, he had 12tfl, 4.5 sacks and 49 tackles. Impressive production for a guy his size. Reminds me of a more athletic Alan Branch. VO has potentialto be an Albert Haynesworth type player. If he has good production this year and tests well, I could see him being a top 10 pick.

There are some talented DT prospects in next years class, I am a big fan of Terrance Taylor especially. My favorite prospect at DT is Ole Miss' Peria Jerry, I am biased but I believe he is very underrated and will open some eyes if the Rebels win some games this year. He was a force last year and will anchor a very solid DL this season.

This is probably an area the Panthers will have an eye on the next draft too. Lewis is no spring chicken and it remains to be seen if he can be an effective full time starter.

Ma'ake is a good run stopper but he's not a playmaker, he's a good number 2 to a standout.

I think Raji is probably one of the toughest prospects to project. I don't know if his stock is going to rise back to first-day status, I seriously doubt it can. He could be a steal if he shows the same form he did before and fill out his potential.

06-19-2008, 09:34 PM
Haven't had much of a chance to really look at this class yet, but I know Ole Miss has a guy Peria Jerry who is 300+ pounds and runs under a 5.0. I really think his stock could soar, especially after he hits the combine.

I'm also wondering how low DeMarcus Granger is gonna fall given his shoplifting charge. He's got some good talent, but teams are passing up on players with off-the-field issues.

Vance Walker is a guy who will shoot up boards if he builds on his junior year.

Last year he has 14 TFL including 8.5 sacks; if he can repeat those kind of numbers he will certainly be in demand.


He is around 6-2, 293 and reportedly can run around 4.87; he could easily excell at workouts

Walker has a good supporting cast at Georgia Tech with fellow DT Darryl Richard (6-3, 290) and DE Michael Johnson (6-7, 256) both being excellent prospects in their own right.

I like Vance Walker a lot. He is a great penetrator and a really good fit as a UT in a 4-3. If he can repeat his production and can prove himself against the run, I could see him being a Top 15-20 pick.

Al Woods is absolutely going to explode this year. While not as athletic, he has a bigger frame and eats up a bit more space than Dorsey. I expect him to be a top-20 pick this year if he declares, higher if he stays.

As of now he isn't starting, but if he cracks the line-up and plays well he will be top-20 his physical tools are just too good. If he plays amazing, he will go top-5.

Also if tou are looking for a quick 3-gap UT, this is the draft to get one:
Sen'Derrick Marks, DT, Auburn
Vance Walker, DT, Georgia Tech
George Hypolite, DT, Colorado
Jeff Owens, DT, Georgia
Marlon Favorite, DT, LSU

Tyson Jackson DE LSU could even play the 3-gap UT, he is big enough, (at 6'5" 292 lbs.) he is quick enough (projected to run a 4.83 40 yd. dash.)

Tyson Jackson is not a DT, he is not suited to play inside at all in my opinion. Favorite, Jean-Francois, and Woods will be quite the DT rotation and when you factor in all of their talent at DE you have quite the DL. Their defense should be scary good this season even after losing some very good players.

Sen'Derrick Marks is one of my favorite prospects in next years class, he has the potential to be a great UT in the NFL and he is a perfect fit for Auburn's defense.

I find it funny that every semi-good DT in college football gets compared to Warren Sapp whether they are actually like him or not. And so far no one has lived up to that comparison yet.

Maybe that just goes to show what kind of impact he had on the game.

Just too deep, then add the fact he couldn't beat out TF Drake Nevis when Dorsey went down I don't see him blowing up this year. Next year is his year.

I have to say that I've been mildly surprised by the Fili Moala love flying around. There was never any doubt when I was watching USC that Ellis was the far better player, but I continue to see him projected to go even higher than Sedrick did.

That's because most of his success was due to playing next to Ellis most of his career, this is a make or break year for him though and if he doesn't live up to the hype he won't be drafted nearly as high as mocks have him...Ellis always did look like the dominant player on that line, so Moala needs to prove he can do it on his own.

Demarcus Granger is another Sooner prospect who I feel will definitly come out as an underclassmen year due to his off-field troubles (shoplifting charge last winter). If he can keep his weight under control and play well he could really rise up draft boards.

Geno Atkins is my favourite underclassmen DT prospect. Great penetrator and could emerge as the best DT in the SEC (which is saying alot in a conference with Jeff Owens, Al Woods, Peria Jerry, Demonte Bolden, Marlon Favorite, Myron Pryor and Torrey Davis)

My darkhorse junior DT this year is Nebraska Cornhusker Ndamukong Suh.

First post, LSU fan here. The DT rotation this year will be monstrous. Right now, we're looking at some kind of combination of Rickey Jean-Francois/Marlon Favorite/Al Woods/Charles Alexander/Drake Nevis. I think a lot of people here are forgetting Alexander, whose departure was very noticeable after his knee injury.

My guess is that RJF and Alexander will be the starters. RJF is our best interior penetrator. He is ridiculously quick off the ball and, in my opinion, has the best pro potential of our DT's who will go pro following this season. Charles Alexander is the perfect complement to RJF in that he's a massive space-eater. LSU's defense last year stopped being so dominant after Alexander's injury, and subsequently, Dorsey's. They should both be high draft picks come April.

Key reserves are Favorite/Woods/Nevis. Nevis is a sophomore, so I would guess he will get the least amount of PT this fall, although I think he has a very good chance to be another good one from a long line of LSU DTs and he did beat out Woods for PT after Dorsey went down. Woods has all the pro-potential you could want with his frame, as many of you noted, however, I see him returning for his senior year if/when he fails to win the starting spot and his draft stock falls from lack of PT. He'll be suited for more of the 3-4 defenses. Favorite is probably the one of the bunch that I'm least high on. Very solid player, but I don't see him having the potential of the others.



Aside from LSU, I like Fili Moala and I expect Peria Jerry to break out this year, as Don Vito alluded to. A lot of the pub goes to Hardy on that line, but I think Jerry could turn out to be the better player this year. Sen'Derrick Marks is another guy I like to step out of his former teammates shadow (Sims) just as Moala will do with Ellis.

If the Steelers are looking for dline help, maybe this is why they waited to get it. They have potential to grab a starter at DE plus get a back up NT mid rounds. I like this position, and the 34 OLB position. They are so stacked its not funny. My favorite DT/DE this year is VO from Duke. I think Rutclife(sp) is going to build a nice program there and could see some more Blue Devils drafted. If VO comes out, I think he could be a late 1st pick. I would compare him to a poor mans Haloti Ngata.

I think Geno will have another monster year. Playing alongside Owens is good for him n I REALLY think he is the better of the two. They will be a force in the middle for my Dawgs this season n I wouldn't be surprised to see them both picked on day one this upcoming draft.

If I'm Running a tampa-2 scheme, and I need a 3 technique DT, there are 2 standout players in my mind who fit the Warren Sapp mold.

They both have produced good pass rushers from the DT spot, they are:
Vance Walker: 45 Tackles, 14 TFL, 8.5 SK
Geno Atkins: 41 Tackles, 15 TFL, 7.5 SK

This year has an amazing amount of DT Depth BTW so many potential top 3Round picks

John Gill (Northwestern) (6'3 290)

Never know when one of these guys will break out.

And also while talking about LSU:

Les Miles said last year that Jean-Francois was his 2nd best DT (obviously behind Dorsey). He was really unheard of last year until the national title game where he got defensive MVP.

But the reason he was unheard of is because he was suspended for 12 games, and I hear the NFL looks down on that these days...
