  • Pass-Rushing DE history/analisys:

    First, I want you to think of some of the NFL's greatest pass-rushing DE's. Maybe write down/make a mental note of who you think the 5-10 are (since the 1996 draft).

    You may be surprised to see where they were drafted and what school they came from... (or you might be an NFL know-it-all and find this really boring...).


    I know this list isn't perfect. The formula for "Best DE's" is just a baseline I made up on the spot. Or I might have missed a player, etc... and a couple super-veteran DE's (Michael Strahan, etc) aren't on here because they were pre-1996. But overall I think it's pretty good considering how much info I had to find and put together...
    __________________________________________________ ______


    Best pass-rushing DE's drafted from 1996 to 2006:

    (Best pass-rushing DE = gets you at least 7-8 sacks at least every few seasons OR has at least 1 season of double-digit sacks). I won't list DE's who switched positions (Mathias Kiwanuka (LB), Justin Tuck (DT), etc...).

    Notes:


    - You can find great pass-rushers all through the draft. Plenty of greats were early 1st rounders, but many were not...

    - The best pass-rushers don't always come from big schools...

    - Don't expect big numbers from your DE right away. While some started off big, plenty took a few years to become great at getting to the QB...

    - In a 10-year span, there were 18 players that met the "best pass-rushing DE" requirements, drafted AFTER round 1 (which obviously averages out to almost 2 great pass-rushing DE's taken in rounds 2/3/4/5/6/7 in every draft...).
    __________________________________________________ ______


    So I guess the story here is that if you're a team looking for a pass-rusher, but you don't have an early pick, don't despair, there's talent to be found after round 1...

    I think a lot of the points you brought up are kind of generic and can relate to pretty much any position in the draft.

      Yes, it can be applied to some other positions as well, but the point wasn't to prove that it happens more often with DE's. It's just taking a look at that pass-rushing DE position (I made this for my Vikings board, and the Vikings, you know, really need a pass-rushing DE).

                    Well then scratch the last two years he played at OLB.
                    He was very consistent as a DE when they were in the 4-3.

                    I think the LB think is just a technicality

                      Fair enough.

                        And Justin Tuck isn't a DT--- he's a DE who plays DT in pass-rushing situations.

                          why not counting Justin Tuck? He's been a DE for his entire Giants career.

                            Yea we use him in our Ace Package, which is really 4 DE's (Kiwanuka switching to DL for this package) because its an obvious passing down; like 3rd and 10

                              That's a dirty package.

                              Does Strahan move inside to Tackle in that formation along with Tuck?
