NFL Draft Report: Conventional DEs

NFL scout Dave-Te' Thomas ranks the top 66 defensive ends in the draft, a list that excludes the "rush ends." Of this group, it's possible only three players will be selected in the first three rounds.

Here are the top 66 conventional defensive ends in the draft, as rated by NFL Draft Report's Dave-Te' Thomas. "Round" is Thomas' prediction. "Grade" is based on pro potential. For an explainer on the grades, click here. Players with "(DT)" by their name are more likely to be drafted as a defensive tackle, even though they're on draft boards at defensive end.
