Whoops. Totally forgot about Miller. *fixed*

Not a big fan of Ayers.

Dontay Moch.
4.19 speed? Ridiculous for a OLB. The crazy thing is that this guy doesn't over-pursue, has good acceleration, and great tackling ability. I think he can be an every down OLB, but you can use him as a pass rush specialist for now, and then ease him into the role. Heck, you could put him on kick return duty...
4.19 at 245?

God, do I sound like Al Davis now or what...but this guy can play football and has jaw dropping speed. That is rare.

Pretty good list.

Without debating your rankings I'd like to add Vinnie Curry to your list as well.

Ryan Kerrigan has too much size and not enough athleticism to go with it to play 3-4 OLB. He'll make a fine 4-3 end though.

1- Robert Quinn
2- Aldon Smith
3- Ryan Kerrigan
4- Von Miller
5- Justin Houston
6- Akeem Ayers

Good Value later on- Sam Acho, Greg Romeus, Chris Carter.

Kerrigan reminds me of Mike Vrabel. Same was said about him.

This but with Jeremy Beal moved up behind Houston and Aldon Smith right behind him. Thats about it.

Purdue’s Ryan Kerrigan plays defensive end in college but there are plenty who feel he’s capable of making the transition to outside linebacker in an odd front. Kerrigan may not possess elite size, speed or athleticism but he’s just a terrific football player with a non-stop motor who finds a way to get the job done and that has endeared him to pro scouts. In many ways Kerrigan will remind you of Mike Vrabel, who he could ultimately replace in KC.

Quinn by a landslide, followed by Ayers, Kerrigan, Houston, Smith and Miller.

And if Dontay Moch runs a 4.19 I'll streak during halftime in the Pats' season opener.
