All of the players that I listed are going to be selected in the first four rounds. If we give Mingo the DE position that he was listed at, that makes 13, which is the exact number of DE's taken in last year's draft, so again, at least as deep as last year.
Those guys aren't all going in the top 4 rounds and only 7 or 8 of them are pure defensive ends.
The others are 34 OLB's
Jordan, Ansah, Werner, Datone Jones, Mingo, Carradine, Hunt, Moore,
Okafor, Lemonier will be drafted in rounds 1 thru 4.
Gholston, Mapongo and Bass are 5th thru 7th round guys.
But I only see 3 hand-in-the-dirt defensive ends that are top 40 worthy (Ansah, Werner, Jones)
