8. Shane Ray, OLB (Missouri)
This is one of the best pass rushers in one of the best pass rusher draft crops of all time. Shane Ray is a beast and there just isn’t a better way to say it.
Ray is the third ranked player on the GMENHQ Big Board, and for good reason. He is an unbelievable athlete who can use both his power and his speed to get to the quarterback.
The 6-3 245 pound Ray looks the part, and he put up the numbers to back it up. In 2014 Ray was a human highlight reel, he had 22.5 tackles for a loss and 14.5 sacks with the Missouri Tigers.
Ray is a low-risk pick for three reasons. First he is an unbelievable talent. Secondly he is battle tested against the best offensive linemen from the SEC. Thirdly because he will be able to be a productive starter from day 1.
