It's early so just throwing names out in no order:

Anthony Barr
Dion Jordan
Jarvis Jones
DeMontre Moore (hot name)
Bjoern Werner
Alex Okafor
Michael Buchanan
John Simon
Sean Porter
Jamie Collins
Brandon Jenkins
Cameron Lawrence
LeRentee McCray
Cornelius Washington

There's a lot to like in this crop...Jordan's a great developmental guy if you can get him in the third, but hes a freak athlete that might go in the first. Werner showed off some impressive athleticism this year. Barr is dirty, Moore is one of the best players in this draft period, Porter has upside, Washington is another guy Rex could really mold and develop outside of the first...

A lot of mocks I have seen have us taking some dude named Barkevious Mingo or something. Is he an OLB too?

Jarvis Jones is all hype. Which of these guys is available in the 2nd round and can be on the field all three downs?

Jones is all hype? lulz

Mingo is an OLB and a crazy athlete but he didnt shine as a pass rusher this season like he did as a Junior.

Yes. I saw him against Alabama and on other multiple occassions. He is a one trick pony. He is bad against the run. He is falling on mock boards because all he can do is blitz.

Moore was impressive but he mainly played as a DE at A&M...not sure how he transitions...

He played OLB earlier on his career, but agreed that he will have to answer questions about playing that in the NFL.

Jones > Mingo, who would be my "all hype" guy for this position. Jones has been a big playmaker for a while now.

Huh? You mean the game he had 6 tackles, 3 for loss and 2 sacks and a forced fumble?

I watched a ton of him. Saw him completely dominate the Gators. 12 tackles, 5 for a loss and 3 sacks and 2 forced fumbles. He plays both very well and he's not dropping on any NFL boards, I promise you that. He's a pass rushing play maker. Dudes a beast.

Yeah. The game where he missed tons of tackles and guards mauled him. Overrated.

I would love for the kind of overrated player that puts up 6 TKLs, 3 TFL, 2 sacks, and a FF in a game where he sucked.

The only reason he might be drop is because of the whole spinal stenosis thing. Otherwise he is probably the best defensive playmaker in this draft.

I'd take Manti over him all day. I want a linebacker who can rush the passer, stop the run and cover if need be. Jones does one of those things well.

Manti can't get after the QB, which this team desperately needs.

Jones one thing happens to be the most important one, and one he's proven able to do over the course of his whole college career.

Jones, Mingo, Moore, Jordan. The thing I worry about with Jones is he's a little short but I think he'll be just fine in the NFL. Great year to draft a pass rusher IMO.

Haha. Pitt? Yeah. Okay. 4.4 yards per carry with a 55 yarder skewing the numbers is not ran right through. And tackles are the most overrated stat. How is Te'o going make tackles when offenses run away from him?

I assume you're a Notre Dame fan. I think Te'o will be just fine in the NFL but, he is just a tad over hyped.

The game where ND gave up 4.4 yards a carry and a quarter or more of that 172 was on one carry.

Maybe a little but he is the surest, safest bet in this draft. Plug him in day 1 and you've got a middle linebacker for the next 10 plus years.

Why would they count sacks as carries? Look at the box score. 4.4 yards per carry.
