Established in 2002, the NFL Draft Bible is the most trusted independent scouting service in the world and is used by all 32 NFL teams. Below is our 4-3 defensive end rankings for the 2021 NFL Draft Class.

We did our best to project which players translate best as traditional ‘hand in the dirt,’ down linemen who can get after the quarterback from the defensive end position. Topping the list is a pair of Hurricanes, led by 2020 opt-out Gregory Rousseau, who has drawn Manny Lawson type of comparisons from his head coach Manny Diaz and Jaelan Phillips, who capitalized on the additional playing time with a phenomenal season.

While still raw, Kwity Paye (Michigan) and Jayson Oweh (Penn State) possess all the traits that NFL teams crave and both are oozing with potential. Another prospect with great upside is the long and agile Jordan Smith (UAB) who boosted his draft stock significantly with an outstanding Senior Bowl week.
