7. Michigan State EDGE Kenny Willekes
We’ve finally caught up to the prospect with likely the highest draft grade on the list. Willekes has floated around the back-end of the first round or early portions of the second round for months now.
A late addition to the Senior Bowl, Willekes has a playstyle that is somewhat similar to that of Alabama EDGE Anfernee Jennings (see: #1 on this list). Willekes has slightly more talent as both a pass-rusher and run defender but is nowhere near as versatile as Jennings.
I’m curious to find out why Willekes was a late addition to the game since he’s been regarded as a potential day one prospect since before the season began.
