Best Draft for Defensive Front Seven?
I am looking at this draft and it seems to be loaded at every position in the defensive front seven.
Looking at prospects who are a potential chance to go in the top three rounds we have:
(*Jarvis Jones, *Barkevious Mingo, Khaseem Greene, Arthur Brown, John Simon, Chase Thomas, Brandon Jenkins, Sean Porter, Jamie Collins, *Jelani Jenkins, Travis Long, Gerald Hodges)
(Manti Te'o, *Kevin Minter, *Alex Ogletree, Nico Johnson, Shayne Skov, Jon Bostic, Kevin Reddick, Mike Mauti)
(Star Lotulelei, *Johnathan Hankins, *Sheldon Richardson, Jesse Williams, John Jenkins, *Sharrif Floyd, Kawann Short, Sylvester Williams, *Akeem Spence, Jordan Hill, Everett Dawkins, Brandon Williams)
(*Damontre Moore, Bjeorn Werner, *Sam Montgomery, Ezekiel Ansah, Alex Okafor, Dion Jordan, Margus Hunt, Datone Jones, *Jackson Jeffcoat, *Corey Lemonier, *Dominique Easley, Cornellius Carradine, William Gholston, Lavar Edwards, Malliciah Goodman, Michael Buchanan)
Thats 47 players and perhaps at best 32 landing spots in the first 3 rounds.
This will mean that good talent will be available, I also think it will mean lower profile positions (ILB and 4-3 OLB) will slip a little more than people expect.
