NFL Draft: Pre-Combine Rankings: DT

1. Jonathan Allen, Alabama

Allen is a top five player in the draft overall. His ability to get pressure from the inside will make him a day one impact player.

2. Malik McDowell, Michigan State

McDowell has great athleticism and pass rush ability. He’s tall, which effects his leverage at times and he has some attitude problems, but the guy can play.

3. Caleb Brantley, Florida

Brantley has a great burst and power that make him a really effective interior pass rusher. He lacks ideal size, but his lack of height provides him with great leverage.

4. Carlos Watkins, Clemson

Watkins has ideal size and athleticism, he still lacks some technique and discipline. The ability is there to be an impact player at the next level.

5. Elijah Qualls, Washington

Qualls has a quick first step, lateral quickness and more than enough strength, but doesn’t always play with the best balance.
