There are 32 picks in the first round of the NFL draft. There has been a premium in recent seasons for pass rushers from the defensive line position. With the rules favoring the passing game it has been extremely important for teams to get pressure on the quarterback without blitzing. When teams blitz the chance for defensive injury is greater with high impact collisions and leaves teams vulnerable in pass coverage.

Defensive end Chase Young from Ohio St is slated as the top defensive player in the draft. Young posted 27 sacks in his final two seasons with the Buckeyes. Many draft pundits expect Young selected as the second pick to the Washington Redskins. Ron Rivera is the new coach for Washington and is a defensive minded coach plus the Redskins spent a first round pick on quarterback Dwayne Haskins in 2019.

Derrick Brown a defensive tackle from Auburn is rated as the fourth best defensive player in the draft. As an interior lineman he averaged 28 solo tackles and four sacks a year in this final three seasons with the Tigers. Brown in many mock drafts is slated for the Carolina Panthers as Carolina tries to rebound their defense. Team took care of their quarterback position signing Teddy Bridgewater.

K’Lavon Chaisson an LSU defensive end is the second rated in his position in this draft. Chaisson had a very good 2019 campaign registering 6.5 sacks with 34 solo tackles. In mock drafts he has the possibility of going to the Seattle Seahawks who have a strong need to on their defensive line.

A.J. Espensa is third rated at the defensive end position. He played his college football at Iowa and averaged 11 sacks per year in his past two seasons with the Hawkeyes. New England is in the market for a pass rusher and Espensa is a fit in the Belichick defensive system.
