Many 3-4 teams address needs in the mid rounds and find NFL caliber players that contribute to the team. What pass rushers, NT and DE's do you think can be steals in rounds 4-6?

I've heard prospects like DE Trevor Guyton from CAL, DE Mike Martin, OLB Chandler Jones, OLB Cam Johnson and many more could end up be drafting in those rounds...

Being a CT guy, Kendall Reyes jumps out as a 3-4 DE. Not overwhelming in general, but he is definitely a guy that can fit in as a 3-4 DE -3 UT. Also noted he was a team captain, which has a decent correlation with success and a green flag for some teams.

For late round 3/4 DE pass rushers types I would take...

Nick Gentry Alabama
Malik Jackson Tennessee
Matt Conrath Virginia
Travian Robertson South Carolina
Julian Miller West Virginia

Derek Wolfe is a stud. 6'5, 300 lbs, 21.5 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks

I like Guyton out of cal as a 3-4 DE type.

The problem is that with more and more teams running 3-4 schemes... more and more 3-4 types are going in the earlier rounds

I think Martin might be a better fit at NT in the Kelly Gregg mold.

OLB - Adrian Hamilton, Prairie View A&M

Broke Robert Mathis's sack record in the SWAC this past year with 20.5. Reminds me alot of Von Miller. Hope my Niners are all over this kid and make him a book-end with Aldon Smith.

A few players from Boise...Crawford is a late round guy for a 3-4 team, but Wynn and McClellin are there.

I like Cam Johnson, Massaquiou, Curry, Keenan Robinson (ILB/LB), Bradham (ILB/LB), Darius Fleming I guess, DaJohn Harris (DL/NT)...whole bunch of guys. Possibly Chandler Jones.

Syracuse grad here and I think Chandler Jones could be a solid NFL contributor. Not the flashiest, but works hard, good instincts and plays disciplined. Doesn't have the top-end speed or athleticism that great pass rushers have, but plays above his ability.

Plus he has freakish bloodlines. One brother plays minutes on a defense as stout as the Ravens and the other is the 2011 UFC fighter of the year.

Definitely reminds me of some of the situational OLB/DE the pats have.

I wonder if Big Kheeston Randall out of Texas could be a 3-4 DE.

I watched him play and was quickly googling this guy within seconds. I'd like him as a 4-3 DE for my Titans late

Some good names being brought up already. I really like Sammy Brown, Trevor Guyton, Wolfe, and Jack Crawford.

One guy I haven't seen mentioned is Tony Jerod-Eddie. Really liked what I saw at the Senior Bowl practices, seemed to be quicker and better with his leverage than Randall was. I really need to go back and watch some more of him. Seems like he really flew under the radar a little bit.

Jaye Howard. Long arms, violent hands, and scheme versatility. Can play 3/4/5 tech.

Although, a 3 tech and a 4 tech are essentially the same thing, just out of different fronts. So I'm just being redundant.

Cam Johnson will be a very good OLB for some 3-4 team

He's only 6'2" 240 though. HORRIBLE size for the 43, and real undersized even for the 34.

What's the deal on Ohio St.'s Nathan Williams, did he declare or get a medical redshirt?

Thanks for throwing him out. No idea who he was, but he does look like a legit prospect for late rounds.

HBCU Bowl Official Weigh-In Results had Hamilton at 6020 246. So he's an inch shorter than Von Miller but weighs more.

He reportedly had the flu and ran his 40's in 4.75, and 4.80

A name that intrigues me is Kyle Wilber, OLB from Wake Forest. He started at DE for Wake as a freshman but was moved to OLB when the team switched to a 3-4. He's listed at 6'5 240 so he's a long athlete with room to grow, has some fluidity and explosion coming off the edge and does a nice job at using his long arms to set edge in the run game. He does need to get a little bigger and stronger but does have the frame to do so. He has a pretty well rounded skillset and experience as a stand up rusher in a 34 to go along with it.

Bruce Irvin, OLB WVU

I had high hopes for the kid heading into the season after he blew up last year but he disappointed and played himself into the mid-later rounds. Definitely a pass rush specialist and not an every down guy but someone who can get to the QB like he does can prove to be very valuable to a team in the 3rd-4th round.

Cordarro Law, OLB Southern Miss

Consistency isn't his strong suit but he made plays in big moments and that will get anyone noticed. He's always in the backfield and has that upside you look for in the middle rounds. Smaller school guy with less talent around him may work in his advantage here. He should be able to stack up against the bigger program athletes in terms of combination of size and speed. He could play with both his hand on the ground and standing up, and as always versatility in the front seven increases your value.

Stop me if you've heard this name before:

Kendall Reyes, DE UConn

Watch the tape. Could be a little bit of a project but with the right coaching this kid has the physical abilities and work ethic to bring it all together. He was one of the leaders of this Husky team for the past two years and that should grade well in the interview process. Really like this kid, think he could shoot up the draft boards.
