If you're looking for immediate help from this class, then you should grab your guy early in your dynasty rookie draft.
The 1st round of the 2020 NFL Draft featured 4 defensive players among the 1st 9 selections and 13 defenders overall. But 6 of those guys play CB, and another 2 line up at DT. Those are generally the 2 positions of lowest value in IDP leagues -- both based on the numbers they produce and how replaceable they are.
The Edge group begins with a player who looks like the surest thing in this class, but it quickly gets iffy (or worse) after that.
It's a good year to get a LB with both immediate appeal and long-term upside. And you might be able to find quick help at DB as late as the NFL Draft's 4th round.
Here's my top 40 overall, with positional rankings below that. Of course, scoring formats differ quite a bit and could alter your approach. If you get more points for sacks and/or score QB hits, pressures, etc., then bump up the edge rushers. I marked the Edge players in the LB section below.
1. Chase Young, DE, Washington
In 2019, Young earned the best pass-rushing grade that Pro Football Focus has handed out since it started grading college players in 2014. As a true sophomore the year before, he racked up 75 total pressures. He led this class in sacks per game by a healthy margin last year (1.38 vs. Alex Highsmith's 1.15 at #2). And Young averaged 1.19 tackles for loss per game for his Buckeyes career. He wins in any way you can measure. Landing with a Washington defense that's switching to a 4-3 front delivered the final piece: a DE designation. Put it all together, and you have the clear top IDP option among 2020 rookies.
2. Isaiah Simmons, LB, Cardinals
Simmons left the board 15 picks before the next LB taken -- and looked like a steal at that point. The versatile defender led the class with his elite speed score and matched it with production. His final college season alone delivered a dream IDP line: 104 tackles (16.5 for loss), 8 sacks, 8 passes defensed, 3 INTs, 2 forced fumbles. Simmons' 12.5% share of solo tackles ranked 10th among the LB class, particularly impressive considering the strength of Clemson's D. In Arizona, Simmons should quickly push D'Vondre Campbell aside.
3. Kenneth Murray, LB, Chargers
Murray ranked 3rd in the LB class in speed score, 9th in 2019 solo tackles per game, 4th in tackles for loss per game and tied for 8th in career solos per game. Murray racked up 257 tackles, 29.5 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks over his final 2 college season, while spending all 3 years as a starter. His 1st-round landing with the Chargers points to immediate 3-down duty.
4. Patrick Queen, LB, Ravens
Queen started just 16 games across 3 college seasons. He didn't even open 2019 in the lineup, entering only after Michael Divinity got suspended. But Queen spent the rest of the season impressing, especially in coverage. Pro Football Focus graded him 12th-best among FBS off-ball LBs in that facet. Baltimore spending a Round 1 pick on him proves they were impressed, and the Ravens sport an immediate need for full-time snaps at ILB. Expect Queen to fill that role right away. The fact that he won't turn 21 until Aug. 13 certainly doesn't hurt his long-term outlook.
5. Logan Wilson, LB, Bengals
Wilson leaps over a few earlier drafted LBs here because of the opportunity in front of him and his college production. The Wyoming alum started 52 college games. He delivered 94+ total tackles and at least 7.5 tackles for loss every season. Wilson graded out well in run defense, coverage and as a blitzer, according to Pro Football Focus. He then finished off the profile with an 82nd-percentile 40-yard dash and a 71st-percentile 3-cone drill. In Cincinnati, Wilson should hit his 1st training camp (if that happens this year) as the favorite to win the MLB job and stay on the field in all packages.
6. Jordyn Brooks, LB, Seahawks
Does Brooks replace K.J. Wright this year and allow the Seahawks to cut the veteran's contract? Or does he take over Mychal Kendricks' vacated role ahead of Cody Barton? Either way, the 1st-round draft capital suggests Seattle expects Brooks to be a factor quickly and for a while thereafter. Brooks ranked 5th in the class in speed score and delivered strong production: 4th in solo tackles per game for 2019, 6th in solo-tackle market share, 1st in tackles for loss per game and 5th in career solos per game. Brooks presents long-term versatility. He played OLB over his 1st 3 seasons before moving to the middle as a senior. So he could ultimately even grow into the heir to Bobby Wagner.
7. Willie Gay, LB, Chiefs
Gay had trouble staying on the field at Mississippi State, enduring multiple team suspensions and losing 8 games to academic fraud in 2019. But he caught everyone's attention with a top-shelf 122.8 speed score at the Combine, closer to Isaiah Simmons' class-leading performance than to #3 Kenneth Murray. Gay translated his speed to strong play in coverage for the Bulldogs. PFF graded him 90.0 or better in that area each of his final 2 seasons. Gay should quickly win a 3-down job in Kansas City's limited LB corps.
8. Grant Delpit, S, Browns
Behind that 6-pack of LBs sits a group of safeties with immediate opportunity staring them in the face. Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Delpit "can fit any safety role because of his versatility." Stefanski says they believe Delpit can play in the box, in man coverage and back deep. A high-ankle sprain limited his performance and production in 2019, but Delpit delivered 9.5 tackles for loss, 5 sacks and 5 INTs as a 2018 sophomore. He defensed 24 passes as a 3-year starter in the SEC.
9. Xavier McKinney, S, Giants
McKinney led Alabama in tackles and solos in 2019. Across 2 seasons as a starter, he racked up 169 tackles, 104 solos, 11.5 tackles for loss, 6 sacks, 15 passes defensed, 6 forced fumbles, 5 INTs and even a pair of TD returns. With the Giants, McKinney replaces Antoine Bethea, who primarily played FS. But McKinney's cross category production in the SEC makes him worth betting on at the top of this DB class.
10. Jeremy Chinn, S, Panthers
Chinn posted the big numbers you want to see from an FCS-level player: 6.4 tackles per game, 13 INTs, 31 passes defensed and 6 forced fumbles for his career. At 6'3 and 221 pounds -- nearly LB size in today's NFL -- Chinn delivered a 4.45-second 40-yard dash (92nd percentile among safeties), 41-inch vertical (96th) and 11'6 broad jump (99th). Landing with Carolina presents Chinn with immediate starting opportunity in the SS role that helped Eric Reid deliver DB1 scoring last season.
11. K’Lavon Chaisson, DE, Jaguars
I'm not high on Chaisson, who tallied a just-OK 35 total pressures in 2019 and only 16 in the 2 years before that. But his draft position backed up the hype, landing him with the Jaguars in the 2nd half of Round 1. At just 254 pounds, Chaisson might need to add weight to hold up to starter-level snaps. But he's actually bigger than Jacksonville DE Yannick Ngakoue. The franchise-tagged DE remains in the way for now, but his relationship with the team certainly doesn't seem to have a lot of time remaining.
12. Yetur Gross-Matos, DE, Panthers
Gross-Matos delivered pass-rushing production over his 2 starting seasons at Penn State. That included 34.5 tackles for loss and 17 sacks. He didn't run the 40 at the Combine, but Gross-Matos looks quick off the ball on tape. He landed in Round 2 with a Carolina defense in dire need of front-7 help. Don't be surprised if he starts right away.
13. Zack Baun, LB, Saints
Baun's a challenging projection because he's going from playing mostly on the edge at Wisconsin to an off-the-ball position in the Saints' 4-3 base defense. But he brings all the necessary tools. His 101.8 speed score is easily above average for either an edge or off-ball LB. His 7.0-second 3-cone time is strong for either spot. Baun racked up 19.5 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks in his final Badgers season. And he's always been the kind of athlete worth betting on: Baun played QB in high school, where coaches voted him Wisconsin offensive player of the year. He also lettered in basketball and track. The biggest question for his IDP outlook is whether he'll generate enough tackles to lay the solid base we need from an off-ball LB or settle into a role similar to what Anthony Barr has played for Minnesota. That would present plenty of real-life value for New Orleans, but Barr hasn't offered much help to us fantasy owners.
14. Malik Harrison, LB, Ravens
Taylor, Malik Harrison and Jacob Phillips all 3 went in Round 3 of the NFL Draft. Harrison gets the top spot among them. He combines decent size -- 6'2, 247 pounds -- with strong athletic testing and solid production. Harrison delivered 25 tackles for loss over his 2 starting season at Ohio State, adding 8 passes defensed. He then impressed at the Combine with 76th-percentile or better marks in the 40, the 3-cone drill, the vertical and the broad jump. Harrison posted a 74th-percentile speed score among off-ball LBs and drew Brian Cushing as an athletic comp from PlayerProfiler. The risk is that Harrison proves to be just a 2-down thumper in the NFL, but he showed promise in coverage as a Buckeye and carries 3-down upside.
15. Davion Taylor, LB, Eagles
Upside is the selling point with Taylor, who barely played football in high school for religious reasons and then had to prove himself at the JUCO level before landing at Colorado. He posted limited production over 2 seasons with the Buffaloes but then showed off elite athleticism at the Combine. His 40-yard dash, 3-cone and speed score all rate 84th percentile or better at LB. And landing with the Eagles in Round 3 presents immediate starting opportunity in a LB corps that returns only Nate Gerry among last year's starters. The question will be how soon the 6-foot, 228-pound Taylor can be ready to start.
16. Antoine Winfield Jr., S, Buccaneers
Winfield closed out his Minnesota career with a terrific stat line in 2019 that included 83 tackles, 3 sacks and 7 INTs. At just 5'9, he's probably more of a FS than a box player, but Winfield spent time in both areas as well as slot coverage in college. It'll be surprising if he doesn't start right away. That they drafted him in Round 2 suggests there's no concern over the hamstring and foot injuries that ended Winfield's 2017 and 2018 seasons, respectively.
17. Kyle Dugger, S, Patriots
Dugger has to take the biggest leap in competition level of anyone on this list, coming from Division II Lenoir-Rhyne. But the Patriots selected him with the 5th pick of Round 2 as just the 2nd safety off the board. So they clearly believe he's capable. Dugger grabbed 10 INTs and defensed 36 passes for his college career. He averaged 6.3 tackles per game over his final 3 seasons, losing half of his senior campaign to a finger injury. Despite playing just 7 games, though, Dugger won the 2019 Cliff Harris Award, which goes to the top defensive player in Division II. He then commanded attention at the Combine with a 4.46-second 40 (86th percentile), 42-inch vertical (98th) and 11'2 broad jump (98th). New England traded 3rd safety Duron Harmon to the Lions this offseason, which helps Dugger's path to early playing time.
18. K’Von Wallace, S, Eagles
Wallace didn't come off the board until the middle of Round 4, but he couldn't have landed in a much better spot. The Eagles shed veteran S Malcolm Jenkins this offseason, with the plan to move CB Jalen Mills to his role. If that doesn't work out, Wallace could prove next in line for the 2020 job. And even if it does work out, Mills returns on just a 1-year contract. Wallace could fit nicely as a Jenkins replacement after splitting most of his time last season between covering the slot and playing in the box. He went from just 3 INTs and 5 passes defensed over his 1st 3 Clemson seasons to 10 PDs and 2 INTs as a senior.
19. A.J. Epenesa, DE, Bills
Epenesa proved highly productive over 2 starting seasons at Iowa, and you could certainly push him up this list if a D-lineman makes more sense for you than a DB. Epenesa racked up 30.5 tackles for loss over the past 2 years, including 22 sacks. He added 6 pass deflections and 8 forced fumbles. The problem is that he's s-s-s-l-l-l-o-o-o-w-w-w for the position in the pros. Epenesa's 5.04-second 40 time at the Combine gave him just an 85.2 speed score. That's 8th percentile for an edge player. And it matches his college tape. Epenesa won with power, not speed. (And yet he only managed 17 reps on the bench -- 6th percentile.) Landing with the Bills helps. Buffalo presents 1 of the best defensive coaching staffs in the league, and selecting him in Round 2 points to a prominent role. Epenesa might be best suited for early-down work on the edge and then an interior pass-rushing role. That uncertainty to his outlook, though, knocks him down my board.
20. Derrick Brown, DT, Panthers
The class' top DT led all players over 270 pounds in solo tackles per game last season. Brown posted nice numbers for a DT in each of his 3 starting seasons at Auburn, including 9.5+ tackles for loss and 3 to 4.5 sacks each year. But he has yet to display the statistical ceiling of last year's top DTs, Ed Oliver and Quinnen Williams. Brown should certainly start right away on a rebuilt Panthers D-line.
21. Jacob Phillips, LB, Browns
Phillips led last year's national-champ Tigers in tackles and took over play-calling duties after LB Michael Divinity got suspended. Phillips also delivered 87 tackles and defensed 3 passes as a 1st-time starter in 2018. He graded poorly in coverage for his LSU career, though, according to PFF. So does Phillips earn just a 2-down role in Cleveland. Coming off the board in Round 3 helps the outlook, and landing with the Browns offers the opportunity to start right away if he proves ready.
22. Darrell Taylor, DE, Seahawks
Here's where the edge class really gets to be a grab bag. Taylor offered solid production over 2 starting seasons at Tennessee, tallying 21 tackles for loss and 16.5 sacks over that span. Pro Football Focus' numbers, however, point to improvement in his final season. After totaling 53 pressures through his 1st 3 years, Taylor tallied 44 in 2019 alone. His 87.0 pass-rushing grade ranked 18th among all edge players with 100+ pass-rushing snaps in 2019. Taylor was the 4th DE off the board, going to Seattle 6 spots ahead of Epenesa.
23. Julian Okwara, DE, Lions
Okwara joins big brother Romeo in Detroit but arrives as a better prospect. Scholarship offers for the Notre Dame alum also included Clemson, Georgia and Michigan. Little Okwara heads to the NFL as a weak run defender but strong pass rusher. He finished 2018 with the nation's 6th most total pressures (61), according to PFF. A broken fibula cut short his final season for the Irish. Okwara averaged 0.9 tackles for loss per game over his final 2 seasons. And he lands with a Detroit defense that needs edge help quickly.
24. Curtis Weaver, DE, Dolphins
I expected Weaver to go long before Round 5, and I believe he carries upside well beyond this level. He ranked 4th in this edge class in sacks per game last season (0.96) and tied for the lead in tackles for loss per game (1.39). That productive 2019 followed 2 other years of strong production. Weaver posted at least 13 TFLs and 9.5 sacks each season. We didn't get a 40-yard dash from him at the Combine to judge his speed score, but Weaver tied Zack Baun for 2nd in the class with a 65th-percentile 3-cone time. The Dolphins signed DEs Shaq Lawson and Emmanuel Ogbah in free agency and drafted DE Jason Strowbridge 10 spots ahead of Weaver, so they don't need the Boise State alum to emerge quickly. But don't be surprised if he does.
25. Josh Uche, LB, Patriots
Uche would carry more IDP value as a DE, but his mere 6'1, 245-pound frame always pointed to a likely LB designation. Uche plays stronger than you'd expect from a player in his size and includes bull rush in an impressive repertoire of pass-rushing moves. The size could limit Uche's snap counts in the NFL. Indeed, even Michigan limited his playing time. But Uche landed in the right spot for being optimally deployed at the next level, and the Round 2 draft capital points to more than a part-time ceiling.
26. Akeem Davis-Gaither, LB, Bengals
The Bengals have done a near-complete renovation on their LB corps over the past 2 offseasons. Davis-Gaither arrived in Round 4, following LB Logan Wilson a round later. At just 6'1, 224 pounds, it's not clear whether Davis-Gaither has the size to aspire to a full-time role in the NFL. But he does bring along the well-rounded skill set to make that possible. Davis-Gaither racked up 197 tackles, 24 tackles for loss, 6 sacks and 15 pass breakups over the past 2 seasons at Appalachian State. Pro Football Focus graded him well in both run D and coverage, and Davis-Gaither saw a big increase in his pass-rushing role last season. He's certainly not big enough for a regular spot on the edge in the NFL, and both Wilson and 2019 draftee Germaine Pratt look like better 3-down bets for 2020. There's also a potential challenge from 7th-round LB classmate Markus Bailey, who likely would have gone much earlier if not for multiple ACL tears in college. But Davis-Gaither's total package gives him plenty of long-term intrigue.
27. Troy Dye, LB, Vikings
In a different landing spot, Dye could be a candidate for immediate starter duty. (Switch him and Davion Taylor in the draft, for example, and Dye might be top 12 here.) Dye spent 4 years starting at Oregon, rating well in all areas. PFF graded him even stronger in coverage than in run D, and Dye proved effective as a blitzer. Arthroscopic knee surgery in January kept him from working out at the Combine, which might have helped push Dye down to Round 4. In Minnesota, he has a chance to start right away on the weak side. But that hasn't been a 3-down role in recent seasons, with MLB Eric Kendricks and SLB Anthony Barr both playing full time and across sub packages. Still, Dye presents nice long-term upside.
28. Jabari Zuniga, LB, Jets
When will the Jets finally find some answers on the edge? Zuniga at least leads the currently rostered options in upside. He ranked 2nd behind only 7th-rounder James Smith-Williams in speed score among this edge class (113.9, 88th percentile for the position). His production behind the line of scrimmage lagged at Florida, though, where a September high-ankle sprain certainly didn't help his 2019 finale. That didn't deter Jets GM Joe Douglas: "I think, for me, when you're watching tape on Jabari, even when he was dealing with the ankle injury, his explosiveness, his suddenness jumps off tape. He plays with really good hand strength. He can really disrupt gaps. He's an edge presence. His disruption percentage rate was high. He was close to a 16% pressure rate. … He's been a consistent producer in his four years at Florida, even with the injury." Among last year's Jets, only OLB Jordan Jenkins and S Jamal Adams delivered more than 3 sacks.
29. Terrell Lewis, LB, Rams
Lewis probably would have gone higher in the draft if not for a messy injury history. He lost time to an upper-arm injury in 2017, sat out 2018 following an ACL tear and then suffered a bone bruise to the same knee last season. Lewis reportedly showed some early signs of arthritis in pre-draft testing. But he performed well enough as a pass rusher in his final season at Alabama to earn 2nd-team All-SEC honors (6 sacks, 11.5 tackles for loss in 10 games). And the Rams couldn't have been too worried about the medical side if they chose him in Round 3. He joins an L.A. defense somewhat thin at OLB after letting Dante Fowler walk in free agency and replacing him with Bears castoff Leonard Floyd.
30. Kenny Willekes, DE/DT, Vikings
I had to force myself to rank Willekes this low. I knew he didn't appear headed for an early draft slot, but I was absolutely shocked he stayed on the board until Round 7. Go ahead and try to read something about this guy without developing a crush. First, he earned all-state honors at LB AND RB (1,400 yards and 14 TDs) as a high school senior. He still only got a scholarship offer from Division II Wayne State.
Instead, Willekes walked on at Michigan State and swore he'd earn a scholarship. He garnered scout-team player of the week recognition 6 times during that season and earned that scholarship. After a quiet 1st year of eligibility, Willekes spent the past 3 as a starter. He delivered 49 tackles for loss over that span, with no fewer than 13 in any season. That included 23.5 sacks; plus 72+ total tackles each year. Big Ten coaches named Willekes the conference's top D-lineman for 2018 after he racked up 20.5 tackles for loss, 8 sacks and 4 pass deflections. A fibula fracture in the Redbox Bowl delayed Willekes' preparation for 2019 and helped chip away at his production. But even then, he ranked 10th in this class in tackles for loss per game and 11th in sacks per game. Willekes also leads the group in career tackles for loss per game. And he earned run-D grades of 80.0 or better from PFF all 3 starting seasons.
He turned in a below-average speed score (33rd percentile) and 3-cone (44th percentile) at the Combine, which helped push him down the board. But Willekes still measured close to DEs Charles Johnson and Olivier Vernon, who each landed in the 3rd round and enjoyed some NFL success.
Going to Minnesota not only lands Willekes under the staff of defensive HC Mike Zimmer. He also joins a defense that just shed Everson Griffen and Stephen Weatherly at DE this offseason. So there's immediate opportunity (as well as competition from the next guy on this list).
So feel free to push Willekes further down these rankings if you don't want to take a shot on a 7th-rounder here. I might still be overly stubborn on him even at this level. But I'd rather bet on a guy that has made a point of proving people wrong to this point.
31. D.J. Wonnum, DE, Vikings
The Vikings drafted this guy 3 rounds before the player I put ahead of him on this list. That alone probably makes Wonnum a better bet for NFL impact than Kenny Willekes. You can read my case for Willekes above (in case you missed it the 1st time through), so let's just focus on Wonnum here. The former Gamecock delivered a 65th-percentile speed score in Combine testing. He added a 69th-percentile 3-cone time and 81st-percentile or better marks in both the vertical and broad. Wonnum clearly beats Willekes in explosiveness. But he lagged in production. Wonnum topped out at 6 sacks and 13 tackles for loss back in 2017. That season also produced his high of 57 total tackles and all 5 of his career pass deflections, according to Sports Reference.
32. Javon Kinlaw, DT, 49ers
Kinlaw brings talent but just meh college production to the 49ers. He totaled only 17 tackles for loss and 10 sacks across 3 seasons at South Carolina, despite starting 34 games over that span. Kinlaw earned 1st-team All-America honors in 2019, but he also drags along a dotted injury history: hip-labrum surgery, a back injury, 2 knee injuries. To be fair, though, multiple teams had no issue with his medical -- and that obviously included the 49ers. Kinlaw clearly presents upside if you're looking for a DT.
33. Alton Robinson, DE, Seahawks
Robinson tested quite well. He delivered the 4th-best speed score among edge players in this class and rated 78th percentile in the 10-yard split, 82nd percentile in the vertical and 76th percentile in the broad. His best season came in 2018, when Robinson racked up 17 tackles for loss and 10 sacks. Pro Football Focus awarded him a strong 89.8 pass-rushing grade that season. There's a chance Robinson outperforms fellow Seattle draftee Darrell Taylor, who came off the board 3 rounds earlier.
34. Ashtyn Davis, S, Jets
This high-upside athlete brings track speed -- literally. Davis got no football scholarship offers out of high school, so he went to Cal for track and earned his way onto the football team. He grew into a starting safety and grabbed 6 INTs over the past 2 seasons. Davis hit the draft as 1 of the top coverage safeties in the class and landed (in Round 3) with a Jets defense that might look to replace Marcus Maye as soon as this season.
35. Bradlee Anae, DE, Cowboys
Just like Curtis Weaver, Anae posted nice college production but then lasted until Round 5 of the NFL Draft (the final selection). But Anae fell a little short of Weaver's production, topping out at 14 tackles for loss and 47 total tackles. Anae also looks slow on tape, and his testing backed that up. His 87.0 speed score rates just 12th percentile for the position. You'll find some Anae advocates out there, but that ain't me. He does, at least, find opportunity in Dallas.
36. James Lynch, DT, Vikings
You want an upside DT? Here's your guy late. The college numbers are a bit deceiving. Lynch's 19.5 tackles for loss and 13.5 sacks last season came with him playing on the edge. But the versatility should help his pro outlook. And a player who succeeded on the edge in college should at least present some upside as an interior matchup in the NFL. Minnesota's renovations on the D-line this offseason presents opportunity to all the new guys.
37. Alex Highsmith, LB, Steelers
Highsmith had to walk on at Charlotte but climbed to all-conference level his final 2 seasons. He delivered in run defense, leading all edge players in run-D grade from PFF in 2018. Then Highsmith earned a 91.4 pass-rushing grade in 2019, which tied for 6th in the country. He posted an above-average speed score and 3-cone drill at the Combine.
38. Shaquille Quarterman, LB, Jaguars
The Jaguars signed Joe Schobert to start in the middle and retain Myles Jack as the new weak-side starter. Beyond that, the jobs look open. Quarterman was the 1st true freshman to start for Miami at MLB since Dan Morgan in 1998, and Quarterman started all 52 of his games. He tallied 82+ total tackles every season and 10+ tackles for loss in 3 of his 4 campaigns. Quarterman even added 13 passes defensed.
39. Mykal Walker, LB, Falcons
Walker comes off 2 productive years at Fresno State to join a Falcons defense in need. He tallied 86 and 96 tackles over the past 2 seasons, with 22.5 tackles for loss over that span. Walker added 10 passes defensed. He also spent much of those 2 seasons playing on the edge, though, which complicates his projection to the NFL. With the Falcons, Walker could compete for the role De'Vondre Campbell vacated with his free-agent departure.
40. Jonathan Greenard, LB, Texans
Greenard posted nice numbers in each of his 2 starting seasons across 2 programs. After tallying 15.5 tackles for loss and 7 sacks at Louisville in 2017, he transferred to Florida. After sitting out a year, Greenard racked up 16 TFLs and 10 sacks in 11 games in his lone season at Florida. Greenard joins a Texans defense with OLB Brennan Scarlett in a contract year and OLB Whitney Mercilus a potential cap question after 2021.
