Default Early Season Top 10 - Defense

These are my early season position rankings for the 2015 NFL Draft. Noting that it's 3 weeks into the season, these rankings are obviously subject to change in the future. However, I thought it would be nice to get a sort of watch list out on this site for the members interested in the draft. Also note, there are a lot of underclassmen on these lists and many of them won't be entering this year.

*For both the offense and defense I will tailor my rankings toward the offense/defense that we run. Obviously my defensive rankings are tailored to the 3-4.

DE
1. Leonard Williams (6-5, 290) - JR, USC
2. Malcom Brown (6-2, 320) - JR, Texas
3. Carl Davis (6-4, 318) - SR, Iowa

7. Sheldon Day (6-2, 290) - JR, Notre Dame
8. Leon Orr (6-5, 310) - SR, Florida

10. Charles Tapper (6-4, 281) - JR, Oklahoma

NT
1. Danny Shelton (6-2, 339) - SR, Washington
2. Jordan Phillips (6-6, 334) - SO, Oklahoma
3. Ellis McCarthy (6-4, 330) - JR, UCLA
4. Eddie Goldman (6-4, 314) - JR, Florida State
5. Antaun Woods (6-0, 310) - JR, USC
6. Nile Lawrence-Stample (6-1, 319) - JR, Florida State
7. Brandon Ivory (6-4, 308) - SR, Alabama
8. Jeffrey Whitaker (6-3, 316) - SR, Auburn

I also think he is going to be taken earlier than he should, since everyone wants the next JJ Watt. So while I think (right now, obviously, things can change) he should be taken in the late 2nd or early 3rd, I see a team taking him in the 15-25 range.

What's his history with O'Brien?

Agreed. I see no reason at all this would stop O'Brien from drafting him.

Agree with both of you. I doubt O'Brien holds any grudge about it. And if Oakman did I'm sure he's let it go. He landed on his feet at Baylor.

I don't see it being an issue.
