I began the Stripe Hype top three lists with the big fella’s last week, defensive line-men, and all but one of the defensive end/tackle prospects stayed the same in those rankings. Aaron Donald moved ahead of Louis Nix and Hageman as the number one overall defensive tackle in this draft class for me. Donald’s dominance at the combine was unmatched by any other defensive tackle and end not named Clowney.
Remember my list doesn’t rank the best college player, but the best pro prospect. This top three list is going to rank the top three inside and outside linebackers. I will use the college positions although I do believe some of these guys eventually will change positions during their professional careers.
