  • Ranking 3-4 OLBs

    So I was just wondering how people would rank the 3-4 OLBs without including Upshaw, Ingram, Perry, and Mercilus. I feel like there are actually quite a few intriguing players after the four I mentioned above, but just wonder how everyone else would rank them.

    Players I was looking at:

    Andre Branch
    Shea McClellin
    Bruce Irvin
    Johanthon Massaquoi
    Chandler Jones
    Ronnel Lewis
    Vinny Curry

    No specific order for me, just wondering how everyone else would rank them.

        Looking forward to checking out some of Bruce Irvin's combine numbers. His first step & explosion are really really good. If he were the same size as Aldon Smith maybe he'd go in the top 10 too.

            1) Vinny Curry - high motor - good get off. Good Senior Bowl week.

            2) Andre Branch - better athlete than given credit for. Looks like he has big hands to control blockers. A little inconsistent still, but talented.

            3) Chandler Jones - a little raw still, but has a really nice frame and flashes top ability. Intriguing prospect.

            4) Bruce Irvin - almost moves like a RB with a little 'jump cut' type pass rush move to the outside. Was out of position at DE in a 3-3-5. Gifted athletically, but needs to develop more in terms of pass rushing moves.

            5) Shea McClellin - not super athletic - but versatile, could play a number of positions.

            6) Jonathon Massaquoi - think he might be better in a 4-3. My tape study has shown he has some ability rushing the passer, but doesn't dominate enough in the Sun Belt for my liking.

            7) Ronnell Lewis - I've been underwhelmed by him on tape study. Get off isn't as good as I was expecting. Rotates a bunch more than fellow DE Frank Alexander. High motor, but had some academic issues as well as durability issues. Too many concerns for me.

                  Am I the only one who thinks that Irvin looks as if he's 230 lbs? Maybe it is just the 11...

                    After I saw the first two posts with McClellin at 7, this is what I was waiting for from you haha.

                    I'm not sure what's going on with him right now, but don't sleep on Bruce Irvin here either. He should be included with this group.

                      i wanted to like Shea McClellan at Senior Bowl. He was meh.

                      maybe he's just in a bad situation like Woodley a few years ago. but he couldn't seem to get off a damn block. Ive seen sites that have him as a solid 2, he looks more like a 5 to me.

                        yeh he looks skinny. his role might be that of Aaron Maybin with the Jets. Pass rusher on 3rd and long, useless the rest of the time.

                          Alden Smith looks skinny too.

                          Mayock on Illinois Defensive End Whitney Mercilus: Fairly gifted kid. Some natural pass-rush ability. Little bit of a 1-yr wonder. Not stout at point of attack.

                          Z-Report Says: Can rush with hand on the ground or standing up. Great burst off the ball, but is a finesse player right now. Looks like he can add 10 more pounds of muscle to his frame. Still learning the position.

                            kinda. Smith looked like he was 250. Irvin looks like he's 230 or less.
