[UPDATE] 2018 NFL Draft 4-3 DE Rankings — Top 25

Being able to find a quality 4-3 pass-rush defensive end is becoming a rare entity, which is why you shouldn’t be surprised if some of these players are selected higher than their skill-set suggests. One of the top prospects in the 2018 NFL Draft is Bradley Chubb from North Carolina State, as he brings size, speed, explosion and many other traits that make him a lock for the top five overall. Other players such as Marcus Davenport of UTSA and Kemoko Turay of Rutgers will be taken much higher, based on their testing and athleticism for the position/size, rather than their film…they’re a roll of the dice who can pay huge dividends if they hit. One player worth monitoring is Tulane defensive end Ade Aruna, who was lights out during the week of the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in January, Aruna, who is similar to JPP (Bucs), possesses the type of raw mechanics that could develop him into a double-digit pass-rusher at the next level with the proper coaching.
