Conley and Lattimore

Along with edge rusher, cornerback is the most important defensive position in football.

There is a plethora of talented corners in this class, whether your team is looking for a starter on the outside or a slot guy, they should be able to find one who can hold up in the pros.

Here I rank my top 20 corners.

Off-ball linebacker may not have the same value as a position as edge rusher and cornerback, but a great one can have a transformative impact for a team.

There are a few such linebackers near the top of this class, and here I rank my top 10 players at the position.

Myles Garrett

You can never have enough edge rushers in the NFL.

Generating a pass rush is pivotal to NFL success and there is an abundance of players adept at getting after the quarterback in this year’s draft.

Here I rank my top 20 edge rushers.

Draft boards are altered every year by good and bad pro day results. Some guys are deemed winners and climb up the rankings, while others falter and slip down the board. Mississippi State’s Richie Brown definitely won. According to this NFL.Com article, Brown posted a 37-inch vertical and a 6.75 three-cone time with at least 30 NFL teams on hand. Richie joined us here at Draft Breakdown to discuss that pro day, how he can help his defense win a play before the ball is even snapped, the toughest offensive players he’s ever lined up against and more.

Thanks for joining me today Richie.

Brown: No problem at all.

You weren’t invited to the combine. Did that tick you off?

Brown: At first yeah, it was a little upsetting. Collectively, we didn’t have a great season as a team. There wasn’t a lot of (read more…)

The edge defenders have stolen the spotlight from the interior defensive linemen this year, but there are still a good number of guys in the middle who have the potential to positively impact NFL teams.

Players such as Malik Jackson and Kawann Short have shown in recent times how valuable high-caliber interior players can be, and here I rank my top 10 in this class.

The consensus is that this is not a great offensive line class, particularly at the tackle spot.

But teams always need help in the trenches and it’s not that a bad of a year for franchises in need of versatile linemen who can play multiple spots.

Here I rank my top 10 offensive linemen.

A potential first-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft, Alabama EDGE rusher Tim Williams took time out of his busy predraft schedule to speak with us exclusively here at Draft Breakdown. Williams leaves Alabama for the NFL with two National Championship appearances and 20.0 sacks to his name. In our interview, Williams talks about his failed drug tests and why he decided to be transparent with teams on the topic, why he’s glad he wasn’t labeled a combine workout warrior, the art of pass rushing, playing for coach Saban and more.

Thanks for joining me today Tim.

Williams: Thanks for having me.

You decided to return to Alabama despite posting double digit sacks in 2015. You were definitely ready to enter the draft last season. Why did you return in 2016?
