Pass Rush Draft possibilities...DE/LBer Source Walter Football

Walter FootBall

1. Damontre Moore*, DE/OLB, Texas A&M

Height: 6-4. Weight: 250.
Projected 40 Time: 4.70.
Projected Round (2013): Top-10 Pick.

2/1/13: The 20-year old junior was one of the most consistent pass-rushers in college football in 2012, amassing 12.5 sacks - one of the larger totals in the country. Perhaps even more impressive than that, Moore led his team with 85 tackles - four more than the next closest defender. He had 21 tackles for a loss, two passes broken up, a blocked kick and a forced fumble, too.

Moore was moved to defensive end before this season, and he took to the position quickly. Moore has demonstrated ability as a pass-rushing terror, and his speed around the edge is a big mismatch against offensive tackles.

Moore size would probably make him a good option at OLB in the 3-4 also.

2. Bjoern Werner*, DE, Florida State

Height: 6-4. Weight: 255.
Projected 40 Time: 4.74.
Projected Round (2013): Top-10 Pick.

We all know this guy will be gone before we pick, but a fellow can dream can't he?

3. Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU

Height: 6-5. Weight: 274. Arm: 34 5/8. Hand: 10.
Projected 40 Time: 4.69.
Projected Round (2013): Top-20 Pick.

2/1/13: Ansah is this year's version of Chandler Jones or Jason Pierre-Paul; great athletes with little college production who go in the first round of the draft. Like those two edge-rushers, Ansah is a tremendous athlete with a rare combination of size, speed and power.

Nice one here IMO. Height, Weight, and Good arm length. First potential pick to drop to our round.

4.. Barkevious Mingo*, DE/OLB, LSU

Height: 6-5. Weight: 240.
Projected 40 Time: 4.60.
Projected Round (2013): Top-20 Pick.

Now I know many here like this one, and while being a self admitted LSU homer, I disagree on this one. Mingo, is too small for a 3-4 DE, and this is too early to go OLB IMHO. NT, and CB should have higher priority. I could get behind it if it was BPA.

5. Dion Jordan, DE/OLB, Oregon

Height: 6-7. Weight: 243.
Projected 40 Time: 4.70.
Projected Round (2013): 1-2.

Another best fit at OLB. Moving on.

6. Alex Okafor, DE, Texas

Height: 6-4. Weight: 261. Arm: 33 1/8. Hand: 9.
Projected 40 Time: 4.73.
Projected Round (2013): 1-2.

2/1/13: Okafor had a good senior season and was a consistent pass-rusher. His job got harder after Jackson Jeffcoat went out for the season with a torn pectoral, but Okafor remained productive. The senior totaled 54 tackles, 12.5 sacks, 16.5 tackles for a loss, four forced fumbles, a blocked kick and a pass batted in 2012.

If we manage to get a second round pick I would give this one a look.

7. Sam Montgomery*, DE/OLB, LSU

Height: 6-5. Weight: 260.
Projected 40 Time: 4.61.
Projected Round (2013): 1-2.

Wow, Walter football just went up in my estimation. This is the first site I've visited, who doesn't have Sam listed as at least a top 5 pick. Still say we pass, at the 15th pick, and go with Lavar Edwards in the third or fourth round. and they don't even have him listed so follow this LINK.

8. Margus Hunt, DE, SMU

Height: 6-8. Weight: 277. Arm: 33 3/8. Hand: 9 5/8
Projected 40 Time: 4.83.
Projected Round (2013): 1-2.

2/1/13: The senior started out poorly in 2012 with a bad game against Baylor. He played better after that including quality showings against Texas A&M, Houston, Southern Miss and TCU. Hunt was a force in SMU's bowl game, picking up two sacks and two forced fumbles. He had 31 tackles, eight sacks, an interception, two passes batted and three blocked kicks in 2012.

Three Block kicks...can you say special teams...maybe he'll drop far enough to consider. You never know.

9. Datone Jones, DE, UCLA

Height: 6-4. Weight: 280. Arm: 32 1/8. Hand: 9 3/4.
Projected 40 Time: 4.77.
Projected Round (2013): 1-3.

Now we are getting to the rounds I would look for a DE in.

10. Corey Lemonier*, DE/OLB, Auburn

Height: 6-4. Weight: 246.
Projected 40 Time: 4.60.
Projected Round (2013): 2-3.

Another one that screams, OLB to me, and would be fine with this in the 3rd or later rounds. You know that BPA thingy.

11. Tank Carradine, DE, Florida State

Height: 6-5. Weight: 265.
Projected 40 Time: 4.75.
Projected Round (2013): 2-3.

And I'm going to stick

11. B here

Lavar Edwards


LSU Description

Despite being overshadowed by two potential first-rounders in fellow defensive ends Barkevious Mingo and Sam Montgomery, LSU's Lavar Edwards managed to come up with seven TFLs and 4.5 sacks as a senior.

List me, I want this guy.

12. John Simon, DE, Ohio State

Height: 6-1. Weight: 256. Arm: 32 3/4. Hand: 9 3/8.
Projected 40 Time: 4.80.
Projected Round (2013): 2-3.
This would be a great 3 rd pick also.
13. Brandon Jenkins, DE/OLB, Florida State

Height: 6-3. Weight: 260.
Projected 40 Time: 4.67.
Projected Round (2013): 2-4.

14. William Gholston*, DE, Michigan State

Height: 6-7. Weight: 278.
Projected 40 Time: 4.75.
Projected Round (2013): 2-4.

And it all goes down hill from here. Please address before we sink this low.
