The next level prospects on the defensive line positions leave a lot to be desired.  There are a few sleepers at the top and prospects with nice potential yet overall its a very uninspired class.

Defensive Line

Rnd Full Name School Pos Yr Comments
5th Marquis Jackson Texas Southern DE 4Jr Long, lean athlete that makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage or laterally. Must add bulk to his frame but comes with a high upside.
5-6 Renard Williams Eastern Washington DT 5Sr Underrated small school defensive lineman that plays with quickness, explosion and athleticism. Shows the ability to bull rush opponents off the line, quickly changes direction and chases the action hard. Potential three technique lineman at the next level.
7th James Brooks North Alabama DE 5Sr Nice sized college defensive end with good movement skills. Strong at the point, consistently defeats blocks and a disruptive force that alters plays. Left Arizona State for personal reasons then surprisingly transferred to NAU. Potential top 100 choice if he gets it together.
FA Tyrell Nielsen Central Washington DE 4Sr
FA Brian McNally New Hampshire DE 5Sr Hard charging defender that’s used in a three-point stance or stands up over tackle. Fluid moving in every direction of the field. Lacks great size/speed numbers for the next level.
FA Roderick Tinsley Georgia Southern DE 4Sr Athletic and quick prospect that plays defensive tackle on the college level. Gets a bit tall and must improve his strength yet comes with an upside.
FA Malcolm Taylor Alcorn State? DE 4Sr
FA Asa Chapman Liberty DT 4Sr Massive interior lineman that is tough to move off the point and takes up a lot of space. Size prospect that must develop his game.
FA Zary Stewart Morgan State DE 4Sr Former Syracuse player that displays terrific athleticism and movement skills. Must get bigger and stronger.
FA D.J. Bryant James Madison DE 5Sr Tall angular defensive end that easily moves about the field. Flashes ability as a pass rusher yet really lacks an elite closing burst and easily handled at the point by blockers.
FA Donte’e Nicholls Tennessee State DT 5Sr Space eater in the middle of the line that occupies blockers yet rarely makes plays on the ball.
FA Thomas Mulabah Cal-Pa DT 4Sr Quick explosive interior lineman built low to the ground. Fires off the snap and moves well about the field. Potential three technique lineman.
FA Delano Johnson Bowie State DE 5Sr Ht/Wt/Speed guy that’s starting to pull it together.
FA Johnny Hollins Texas Southern DT 5Sr
FA Ronnie Cameron Old Dominion DT 5Sr Hofstra transfer and potential three technique lineman at the next level.
FA Akeem Ward Winston-Salem State DT 4Sr Tough college lineman with limited upside. Shows some quickness in his game yet lacks bulk and speed.
FA Daniel Richards Grand Valley State DE 5Sr Highly productive small school defender who red-shirted in 2010 with inury.
