How Nick Bosa Montez Sweat and D-line fr

  • July 14, 2022
    The 2019 NFL Draft Combine was a showcase for one of the deepest and most talented defensive line cla ses in recent memory and that cla s did not disappoint.

    Nick Bosa ran a 4.79 in the 40-yard dash, which is faster than his brother's (Chargers defensive Derek Carrier Jersey endJoey Bosa) 2016 Combine time of 4.86. Dexter Lawrence put up 36 reps in the bench pre s, one more than Aaron Donald had at the 2014 Combine. Montez Sweat ran a faster 40 than Deacon Jones Jersey Jadeveon Clowney. Rashan Gary ran a faster 40 than Myles Garrett.QuinnenWilliams and Brian Burns also put on shows, and Ed Oliver andClelinFerrell chose not to run the 40.

    Size. Speed. Athleticism. This was on par with"Shark Week"on Discovery. The NFL Combine was great. The production is what matters. That is what makes this draft Connor Barwin Jersey cla s that much more intriguing.

    During the NFL Network telecast on Friday, former Texans GM Charlie Ca serly raised some eyebrows with his commentsaboutBosa.

    "I think this guy is better coming out of college than Jadeveon Clowney and Myles Garrett,"Ca serlysaid."High-level production, etc., and those are two first picks in the draft."

    That's a big statement, and it definesthe challenge for Bosa and the rest of the defensive Ramik Wilson Jersey linemen now. Joey Bosa, Donald, Garrett and Clowney are proven high-level producers at the next level. They clinched their draft status at the Combine.

    Bosa stands out among these defensive linemen as the best bet to be the No. 1 pick but he has more competition given the depth at the position. To be that top pick, you better have the production.

    Here is a look at the seven defensive ends who were drafted No. 1 with their career and single-season best sack totals since the NFL began tracking the statistic in 1982.

    YEARPLAYERCAREERSEASON1982Kenneth Sims175.51985Bruce Smith200191992Steve Emtman832000Courtney Brown1962006Mario Williams97.514.52014Jadeveon Clowney299.52017Myles Garrett20.513.5

    Interior linemenRu sell Maryland(1991) and Dan Wilkinson (1994)were also drafted with the top pick, but the same hit-or-mi s-theme exists. Bruce Smith and SteveEmtmanwere freaks in college, too, and they were separated Cooper Kupp Jersey by 192 sacks in Bryce Hager Jersey the NFL.

    There are questions about this group, too:

    Bosa had 17.5 sacks the last three seasons, but he also mi sed most of last year after undergoing core surgery.

    Williams and Burns were breakout performers in 2018.

    Oliver and Gary mi sed significant time with injuries this past season. Oliver was questioned after a sideline argument with Major Applewhite during a game last season. Gary had just 9.5 sacks for his career.

    Sweat had 22.5 sacks at Mi si sippiState, but only after he transferred from Michigan State. Teammate Jeffrey Simmons was getting more draft buzz before suffering a torn ACL. Sweat still improved his stock perhaps more than any other elite Jalen Ramsey Jersey lineman.

    Lawrence failed a drug test and suffered a quad injury at the Combine, and he was part of a defensive line that included Ferrell, Christian Wilkins and Austin Bryant.


    Clowney and Garrett the last two defensive ends to go No. 1 did not have as many questions. That means the 2019 NFL Draft could go one of two directions.

    Option 1: Bosa could Lamarcus Joyner Jersey go No. 1 or No. 2, and there could be a first-round run for the ages with a record number of defensive linemenselected. We saw this .

    Option 2: Arizona could entertain taking Kyler Murray with the No. 1 pick, and the depth at the position could causeteams to wait. Perhaps a few of these Troy Hill Jersey incredible talents fall a little bit further than they should because of the ample supply. Some first-round talents could turn intothird-round picks.

    We're still betting on the first trend to emergewhether it's Bosaor another defensive lineman who goes in the top two picks. Nick Bosa has a strong case to be No. 1,but then again, so didJoey, who went No. 3 in the 2016 NFL Draft behind Jared Goff and Carson Wentz and ahead ofEzekiel Elliott and Jalen Ramsey.

    There were no mi ses and this draftfeels that way, too,as far as the defensive line position goes.

    Bosa, Williams, Gary, Sweat, Oliver, Burns, Ferrell.So many sharks well, defensive linemen to choose from after watching the Combine.

    There is no doubt this cla smakes the 2019 NFL Draft that much more entertaining. But in the end, what we Samson Ebukam Jersey will remember is how these elite athletesproduce at the next level.
