2004 Defensive End Rankings

Rank Full Name School Year
1 David Pollack Georgia 3Jr

Intense, explosive defender that plays non-stop and forces the action in every area of the field. Lacks the great size/speed numbers but reminds us a lot of Grant Wistrom.

2 Will Smith Ohio State 4Sr

Terrific pass rusher with a good amount of upside potential as he physically matures. Deceptively strong and does better defending the run than most credit him for.

3 Claude Harriot Pittsburgh 5Sr

Complete defensive end that creates a lot of havoc up the field, destroying the oppositions plays behind the line of scrimmage. A tad undersized and best on the right side.

4 Antwan Odom Alabama 4Jr
Very good athlete that flashes dominance and the ability to make big plays behind the line of scrimmage.
5 Jonathan Jackson Oklahoma 3Jr

Very underrated defender. Turning into the player Jimmy Wilkerson never became.

6 Chris Canty Virginia 4Jr

Excellent run defending edge lineman that would be a great two-gap player at the next level.

7 Nathaniel Adibi Virginia Tech 5Sr

Explosive pass rusher and fine athlete that makes plays out to the flanks. Could possibly stand up over tackle in a 34-defense.

8 Mathias Kiwanuka Boston College 3So

Young, developing lineman that has all the ingredients to be a special prospect in the future.

9 Bobby McCray Florida 5Sr

Tall, slender athlete and a lineman that makes plays up the field or out to the flanks. Displayed a continual line of progress at UF.

10 Kenechi Udeze USC 3So

Pass rushing terror that will only get better as he physically matures.

11 Marquise Hill LSU 3Jr

Another best over right tackle defending the run with the possibility to be a two-gap lineman at the next level.

12 Darrion Scott Ohio State 4Sr

Defends the run and makes plays in the backfield.

13 Isaac Hilton Hampton 5Sr

Small school prospect whose best football lay ahead of him. Good athlete yet also quick in the head.

14 Marcus Spears LSU 3Jr

Displays great pass rushing skills on occasion but needs to pull the pieces togther.

15 Gabe Nyenhuis Colorado 5Sr

Underrated to our minds and a very good lineman with a large degree of upside.

16 Jason Babin Western Michigan 4Sr

A lesser version of former Louisville lineman Dewayne White.

17 Andrew Shull Kansas St 5Sr

Explosive pass rushing end very much in the K-State mold.
