4. Shane Ray DE/OLB: Missouri
This guy reminds me of one of my all time favorite players Terrell Suggs. Shane Ray is a superstar at the defensive end position; this season he had 12 sacks. He is a freak athlete with an imposing 6’3″ 245 pound frame. He has a great burst off the ball and plays with a low pad level helping him create leverage.
He has the ability to play as a 4-3 defensive end or a 3-4 outside linebacker. He can use both power and speed to get to the quarterback; most importantly he can convert power to speed. He beats offensive tackles off the ball, he gets them off balanced with his great strength and he blows past them like they were geriatric elders riding a stair lift. This is an unreal talent and he has one hell of a motor.
