  1. Robert Quinn, UNC

    Robert Quinn is 1st on this by default. Most of the best DE's in this class aren't great pass rushers. Quinn had one year of great production his Sophomore year, but was essentially booted from the NCAA after accepting multiple gifts from an agent and then lying multiple times to the NCAA. He then showed up the combine after a year of rest and preparation and was average. I just don't trust Quinn.

  2. Brooks Reed, Arizona

    Brooks Reed? This is about the highest your will find Reed on a list, but the more I watch on him the more I love. Reed is a guy that can break through easily, push linemen, give heart on every play and make the rest of his team better. He doesn't accumulate many sacks, but he could be insane if he can take his talent and get molded on a good team.

  3. JJ Watt, Wisconsin
  4. Cameron Jordan, California
  5. Da'Quan Bowers, Clemson

    Da'Quan "Knees made of glass" Bowers might end a 2nd rounder when it is all said and done. He is a 2nd round pick on talent with a lot of potential, but only performed the year before a contract. Who knows what he will be at the next level.

  12. Jabaal Sheard, Pittsburgh
  13. Sam Acho, Texas
  14. Christian Ballard, Iowa
  15. Allen Bailey, Miami
  16. Ugo Chinasa, Oklahoma State
  17. Pernell McPhee, Mississippi State
  18. Greg Romeus, Pittsburgh
  19. Jeremy Beal, Oklahoma
  20. Cliff Matthews, South Carolina
  21. Bruce Miller, UCF
  22. Pierre Allen, Nebraska
  23. Ricky Elmore, Arizona

    I'm not high on Elmore even though I'm not high on Reed. On tape it seemed like most of Elmore's production came from Reed on the other side.
