Rahim Alem

School: LSU
Position: DE
Bio: Posted 34/8.5/4.5 as a senior when he became a full-time starter. All-Conference selection as a junior when he started just a single game yet totaled 29/11.5/8.
Positive: Undersized college pass rusher who makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage. Displays good movement skills, fluid getting out to the sidelines and fast off the edge. Quickly gets off the snap, effectively uses his hands to protect himself, and jolts offensive linemen off the ball with good punch. Can bend off the edge, displays a burst of speed, and pursues the action from the back side. Plays with a tremendous amount of explosion, and rarely off his feet. Covers a good amount of area on the field and shows the ability to drop off the line then play in space on zone blitzes.
Negative: Very slow shedding blocks and easily controlled by a single opponent. Pushed from his angle of attack or knocked off balance by the first block.
Analysis: Alem has displayed himself to be a game-impacting pass rusher on the college level, yet he lacks the true size to be an every down defensive end on the NFL level. He offers possibilities as a pass-rush specialist or can be used at outside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment.

Tough and works hard to get off blocks.
Negative: Must take wide angle angles around blockers. Easily knocked off balance by the first block or engulfed by opponents. Marginal skill in pursuit.
Analysis: Anderson has been relatively productive the past two seasons at Michigan State yet has size limitations. Offers potential as a nickel pass rusher or occasionally stood over tackle in a 3-4 alignment.

Quickly changes direction displaying the ability to immediately alter his angle of attack and pursues the action in the back side. Can bend off the edge, fast up the field, and is a disruptive force.
Negative: Struggles getting off blocks once engaged at the point of attack and mostly a first move pass rusher. Lacks growth potential and may not be able to add much most bulk to his frame.
Analysis: Basped has been a forceful defensive end the past two seasons and is a prospect with some upside. He has the build to be used as a rush linebacker in a 3-4 alignment yet is likely to be nothing more than a back-up at the next level.

Negative: Marginal quickness off the snap. Easily controlled at the point by a single blocker. Minimally productive.

Shows an array of pass rush moves and constantly making plays behind the line of scrimmage. Displayed tremendous power in his game during a standout performance at the Senior Bowl.
Negative: Engulfed at the point of attack or gets caught up in the wash. Rather easily locked up at the point of attack or out-positioned from the action.
Analysis: Carrington is a well-sized defensive line prospect with a large degree of underlying athleticism. He also possesses the versatility to be used at several positions on the defensive line. Carrington is a solid prospect as a defensive end in a four-man line yet has the growth potential to develop into a two-gap end. Considered undraftable before the season, Carrington has since worked his way into the draft's top 100 picks.

Negative: Slow to react and shows a lot of hesitation in his game. Easily controlled at the point and handled by tight ends.

Negative: Marginally instinctive and at times over-runs the action. Gets caught in the wash or handled at the point by tight ends.
Analysis: Davis is a terrific developmental prospect with potential in a four-man front. He offers a lot of upside yet must quickly start to produce on the field.

Fluid moving about the field, stout as a run defender and easily brings ball-carriers down on initial contact.

Negative: Gets tall out of his stance and makes himself an easy target for opponents. Must do a better job using his hands to protect himself. All too often slowed up at the point by blockers. Disappears for stretches and is known to have motivational issues.
Analysis: Dunlap is an immense prospect with outstanding size and football skill. His inconsistent play the past two years and penchant for disappearing for long stretches has been disconcerting. Dunlop could be an all-star type player at the next level if he puts it together and plays hard for 60 minutes or the type of defensive lineman who keeps people thinking he is capable of much more.

Analysis: Fonoti is a high-motor defender who hustles to get involved in the action. He lacks the pure size to play defensive end and may not be fast enough to be moved back to linebacker.

Negative: Struggles getting off the initial block and will be out-positioned by large offensive tackles. Has shown a lot of inconsistency in his game the past two seasons, primarily due to injuries. Not considered a hard worker or a self-starter.

Positive: Terrific college pass rusher with potential in a four-man front. Explodes off the snap, quick moving in every direction of the field and displays good speed off the edge. Bends his knees, plays with good pad level and balance. Shows hand technique working to protect himself or fighting to get off blocks, keeps his feet driving up the field, and fast in every direction. Can bend off the edge and chase the action in pursuit.
Negative: Rather easily knocked from his angle of attack by a single blocker or handled at the point. Primarily asked to make plays up the field in college and rarely used in space.
Analysis: Lang is a solid athlete with adequate size for the next level. Very productive in college, his best opportunity is to line up across from left tackle and chase the quarterback at the next level.

Erik Lorig

School: Stanford
Position: DE
Bio: Former tight end who promptly moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore in 2007 when switched to the defensive line. Struggled with a groin injury as a senior and finished the year with 13/3.5/1 after playing in just five games. Junior totals included 39/6/1.5 area
Positive: Nice-sized defensive end prospect with a large degree of upside. Plays with good pad level, quickly gets off the snap with a nice first step, and always on balance. Explosive, fluid moving about the field, and rarely off his feet. Quickly gets his hands up to protect himself, keeps his feet moving on contact, and fights throughout the action. Immediately regains his balance off the initial block and makes plays up the field or out to the flanks. Displays ability in pursuit and quickly changes direction.
Negative: Lacks bulk and at times easily steered from the action. Marginal playing speed. Minimally productive the past three years.
Analysis: Coming into the 2009 season, expectations were high for Lorig yet a groin injury dampened his results. He's a solid athlete and good developmental prospect with potential at defensive end on a conventional four-man line.

Albert McClellan

School: Marshall
Position: DE
Bio: Moved into the starting lineup midway through his freshman season and has stayed there ever since. All-Conference selection as a senior, after totaling 5554/9/3. Junior totals included 58/4.5/2.5. Sat on the sidelines in 2007 with a knee injury. Posted career numbers of 77/19/11 as a sophomore in 2006, when he was awarded varying degrees of All-Conference and All-American honors.
Positive: Terrific college pass rusher with marginal size/speed numbers. Displays great quickness and explosion in his game, immediately alters his angle of attack without losing momentum and makes plays in all directions of the field. Fights with his hands to protect himself, plays with good pad level and rarely off his feet. Lined up at outside linebacker as a senior and displays the ability to get depth on drops if asked to play in space. Remains disciplined with assignments and gets his hands up to bat away the ball if he cannot get to the passer. Lined up at both outside linebacker and in a three-point stance as a senior.
Negative: Struggles getting off blocks. Does not run well and may not possess the outright speed to play linebacker in the NFL.
Analysis: McClellan has been a terrific player on the college level yet really does not translate well to the NFL. His intensity and ability to be a disruptive force could help him find a home as a one-gap pass rusher in a conventional four-man line.

Quick off the snap, displays good hand technique throughout the action and works hard to make plays.
Negative: Handled at the point by a single blocker. Lacks balance. Marginally productive throughout his Florida State career.
Analysis: Mincey is a size/speed guy with a large degree of upside potential, yet he is an undeveloped football player who really must improve his game.

Negative: Cannot get off blocks once engaged at the point of attack. Lacks great first step quickness. Does not always show a nasty attitude on the field.
Analysis: Misi is a solid prospect who's consistently improved his game over the past three seasons. He offers a good amount of upside potential and should eventually develop into starter at the next level.

Eric Moncur

School: Miami-Fl
Position: DE
Bio: Part-time starter for Miami since his freshman season. Senior totals included 10/1/1, when he played in six games. Totals in 2008 included 6/2.5/4, when he played in four games.

Positive: Effective college pass rusher who struggled with injuries the past two years. Plays with a good degree of explosion, quickly changes direction, and fast off the edge. Covers a lot of area on the field, naturally strong and wraps up tackling. Effectively uses his hands to get off blocks.
Negative: Slow shedding blocks and has tackles broken. Marginal size at defensive end. Lacks the speed to be an outside linebacker.
Analysis: After showing NFL potential in 2007, Moncur has watched his development come to a halt the past two seasons. Offers potential as a nickel pass rusher moving forward if he's healthy.

Fluid if asked to twist or stunt and rarely off his feet. Displays ability dropping off the line and playing in space.
Negative: At times a bit late to react. More of a first move lineman and struggles taking on blocks.
Analysis: Morgan is a disruptive pass rusher who creates problems for quarterbacks with the ability to quickly get upfield. A disruptive force, he has potential both as a conventional defensive end or outside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment. Morgan possesses a great amount of upside, which should be met as he improves his strength and physically matures.

Used in both a three-point stance or stood up over tackle last season and displays outstanding edge speed.
Negative: Must develop more moves with his arms and learn to shed blocks quicker. Limited exposure to big time competition.
Analysis: Pierre-Paul burst on the scene last season and was an impact player on the South Florida defense. He possesses size as well as nice growth potential and is an outstanding athlete who will only get better as he physically matures.

Fluid moving laterally, makes plays out to the flanks, and keeps his pads low to the ground. Works his hands throughout the action, and keeps his feet driving up the field.
Negative: First move lineman who cannot get off blocks once engaged at the point of attack. Stood up by tight ends on running downs.
Analysis: Pilcher possesses the size/speed numbers to be used at defensive end in a conventional system, but he must prove he's more than a first-move lineman.

Robert Rose

School: Ohio State
Position: DE
Bio: Started five games as a senior finishing the year with 10/3/2. Posted similar numbers of 10/3/1 as a junior.
Positive: Impressive physical specimen who flashes ability on the field. Plays with good knee bend, gets leverage on opponents and shows power at the point of attack.

Negative: Lacks great lower body strength and will be pushed off the line on running downs. Does not display great quickness and explosion in his game. Marginally productive at Ohio State.
Analysis: Rose looks the part and has occasionally played to it the past two seasons yet never fully transferred his athletic abilities onto the football field. He's worth bringing into camp and offers a great degree of upside but must pull it together quickly to have a career at the next level. Could find a home on a practice squad for team that's willing to be patient with the hopes of developing him.

Positive: Productive college pass rusher with average size/speed numbers for the next level. Bends his knees, consistently playing with leverage and rarely off his feet. Effectively uses his hands to protect himself, is fluid moving laterally and covers a lot of area on the field. Collapses down the line to make plays against the run and chases the action hard. Holds his ground against blocks and nicely redirects to ball handlers, shows the ability to quickly change direction or immediately alter his angle of attack. Quick if asked to twist or stunt and does a solid job diagnosing the action and remaining disciplined with assignments.
Negative: Easily turned from his angle of attack or controlled at the point by single blocker. Fast off the edge, yet he does not display great pursuit speed on the field.
Analysis: Ruffin has been a terror on the football field since he entered Northern Iowa. He does not possess the speed to be a pure edge rusher in the NFL, and at this point in time, he lacks the size to play across from left tackle. Ruffin offers possibilities as a backup lineman. He's a prospect with a special teams mentality.

Negative: Lacks natural bulk and is controlled at the point of attack by a single blocker. Despite his 40 time shows an average closing burst to the play.

Negative: First move lineman who cannot get off blocks once engaged the point of attack. Has always been branded a better athlete than football player.
Analysis: Sapp is a terrific NFL prospect and a player with a great amount of upside potential. He has the skills to be used in a variety of positions, but he will need time to develop his game.

Negative: Lacks overall bulk, easily ridden from his angle of attack or sealed from the action by tight ends.
Analysis: Scott lacks the classic measurables for the next level, yet he plays bigger and faster than his size and speed would lead one to believe. He offers possibilities as a backup in a conventional defensive alignment, and he could eventually develop into a solid two-gap defensive end should he fill out his frame.

George Selvie

School: South Florida
Position: DE

Stays with plays and flies around the football trying to make something positive happen. Quick off the snap with a nice first step, forceful up the field, and displays a burst of closing speed. Immediately alters his angle of attack, makes plays down the line of scrimmage, or can drop into coverage and then play in space. Gets a lot of momentum going up the field and has shown the ability to take over games.
Negative: Shows marginal explosion in his game. Lacks bulk and easily controlled at the point by a single blocker. Shows a lot of stiffness in his game.
Analysis: As a sophomore Selvie was considered a top-flight NFL prospect yet his game has not progressed the past two seasons. He lacks the size to line up in a three-point stance at the next level and does not possess the pure speed to be an every down linebacker. He has a good understanding for the game and his motor is always running, which gives him an upper hand. Projects as a rush linebacker in a 3-4 alignment.

Relatively quick off the snap, works his hands to protect himself, and moves well on the field. Fluid getting out to the flanks and resilient defending the run. Displays above-average strength at the point of attack.
Negative: Lacks great first-step quickness. Easily knocked from his angle of attack by a single blocker. Marginally productive as a pass rusher.
Analysis: Stone displayed a lot of potential as a junior and was considered a fringe late-round choice by scouts coming into the season. His broken foot last August was a major setback, and Stone will now have to prove his worth as an undrafted free agent.

School: Washington
Position: DE
Bio: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors the past two seasons. Senior totals included 37/14/11 after 65/11.5/8 as a junior.
Positive: Relentless college pass rusher with poor size/speed numbers. Plays with a nasty attitude, works hard to get involved in the action, and consistently makes plays on the ball.

Negative: Really struggles going up against large offensive tackles. Lacks great bulk and is easily handled at the point of attack.
Analysis: Te'o-Nesheim is an undersized college pass rusher who lacks the pure speed to play outside linebacker in the NFL. He's a competitive defender who plays with a non-stop motor and goes beyond his physical skills to produce on the field. Will offer possibilities at the next level as a pass rush specialist and special teams player.

Negative: Lacks a big frame and easily controlled at the point of attack by a single blocker. Gets caught up in the wash moving laterally.
Analysis: Tracy has been a pass rushing terror throughout his college career yet has also displayed ability drop off the line of scrimmage in coverage.

Positive: Fluid, college pass rusher coming off a disappointing season. Plays with good lean, balance, and quickly changes direction or alters his angle of attack.

Works his hands to get off blocks. Forceful up the field.
Negative: Handled at the point by a single blocker and can be a liability in run defense. Lacks top and speed.
Analysis: Tukuafu showed signs of being a terrific prospect during his junior season, yet he was never able to capitalize last year. He possesses poor size/speed numbers and limited upside. May have a place as a nickel pass rusher who is stood up over tackle or lined up in a three-point stance.

School: Connecticut
Position: DE

Saw extensive playing time as a rotational defensive end the prior three years, his most productive being his freshman campaign when he totaled 39/3.5/6. Older brother Dante Whitner was selected by the Buffalo Bills in the first round of the 2006 draft.
Positive: Athletic college defensive end who makes a lot of plays up the field. Breaks down well, plays with good lean, and fluid moving in every direction of the field. Plays with good body control, quickly changes direction, and collapses down the line pursuing the action. Flashes lower body power and the ability to push tackles off the ball. Good athlete.
Negative: Does not do a good job using his hands to protect himself and is an easy target for opponents to block. Marginal instincts. Average speed off the edge. All too often pushed aside by a single blocker.

Positive: Large, athletic defensive end who displays the ability to take over games. Plays with good lean, quickly changes direction and makes plays in all areas of the field. Keeps his pads low to the ground, knifes through blocks on the inside, and keeps his feet moving on contact. Solid first-step quickness off the snap and speed up the field. Forces the action, shows power in his game and the ability to push tackles off the ball. Delivers jarring blows and crushing hits on the opponents. Consistently commands double teams. Uses his tall frame and long arms to knock away passes.
Negative: Slow returning from injury last season and looked a fraction of himself during the first two months of the campaign. Rather easily controlled at the point of attack and did not show the ability to breakthrough blocks.
Analysis: Prior to his injury late in 2008, Wootton was a dominant defensive end and a projected top-10 pick in the draft. His frame and playing style lend most to believe he can big he could be used in a variety of systems and ultimately grow into a two gap end for a 3-4 defense. May need a little time to get back to 100% and still must prove he can play at the level prior to his injury yet has all the underlying skills to be a productive starter in the NFL.

Jason Worilds

School: Virginia Tech
Position: DE
Bio: Two-year starter and All-Conference selection as a junior. Totals last season included 49/11/4.5, when he was also credited with 32 quarterback hurries. Sophomore totals included 62/18.5/8 19 quarterback hurries.
Positive: Undersized yet explosive college pass rusher constantly disrupting the action up the field. Explodes off the snap with a terrific first step, plays with great pad level and gets underneath opponents. Fast off the edge, stays within his pass rush angle and makes plays from the back side. Quickly changes direction displaying the ability to get down the line of scrimmage and easily redirects to ball handlers. Gets a tremendous amount of momentum going up the field and has a terrific burst of closing speed, which he can sustain. Displays ability in pursuit and also drop off the line, making plays in coverage during blitz situations.
Negative: Lacks height, undersized, and easily pushed from his angle of attack by a single blocker. Will be engulfed by large blockers.
Analysis: Worilds was a disruptive force who made opposing quarterbacks uncomfortable and disrupted their rhythm with the ability to quickly get up the field. His sacks total from last season were nothing special, but the game film proved Worilds was a difference maker. His ability to drop off the line of scrimmage and play in space was also impressive. Likely to be under-drafted, Worilds has all the skills necessary to make an impact as a rush linebacker in a 3-4 alignment.

Willie Young

School: North Carolina State
Position: DE
Bio: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after posting 54/14/8 while also intercepting one pass. Junior totals included a team-leading 12.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks. Posted 16 tackles for loss as a sophomore.
Positive: Explosive college defensive end who plays bigger and faster than his measurables. Fires off the snap with a great first step, breaks down well, and plays with leverage. Quickly changes direction, fast moving in every area of the field, and effectively uses his hands to protect himself. Constantly doubled by opponents and plays with terrific balance, body control, and rarely off his feet. Shows ability in pursuit.
Negative: Lacks natural bulk and controlled at the point by tight ends. Does not time well in the 40. Considered a
Analysis: Young has been a disruptive force the past three seasons and a defender constantly making plays behind the line of scrimmage. Despite his size/speed numbers, Young is explosive and athletic on the field. Likely to be used as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense, he will be a bargain if he decided to play within the team concept and dedicate himself.

Frank Zombo

School: Central Michigan
Position: DE
Bio: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors the past two seasons. Totals last season included 45/10/6.5 after 51/15.5/6 as a junior.
Positive: Hard-working defensive lineman with limited upside for the next level. Works his hands throughout the action, displays the ability to twist or stunt and plays with good pad level. Fluid changing direction, remains disciplined with assignments and plays with a nasty attitude. Shows strength in his lower body and gets push up the field.
Negative: Plays with only average speed, quickness and explosion. Handled at the point by a single blocker.
Analysis: Zombo is a lineman with nonstop motor yet someone who shows limited athleticism on the field. Has a special teams mentality and potentially an eight defensive lineman at the next level.
