Draft Strategy

2021 IDP Rookie Rankings (updated 8/23)

By Matt Schauf 7:05pm EDT 5/3/21


The 1st round of the 2021 NFL Draft gave us 6 edge players vs. just 3 off-ball LBs. But the latter position stands out as the strength this year for fantasy purposes.

At least 2 of the 1st-round edge defenders figure to carry LB designations, and several of them look more like developmental prospects than immediate contributors.

The LB class, on the other hand, arrives with only the question of draft capital.

Do you focus on the big names who landed in Round 1? Are there a couple of Round 2 options ready to outperform their earlier-drafted classmates? And who are simply the best bets at each position?

Let’s get to it with the overall top 40, followed by positional rankings that go 80 deep (25 D-linemen, 30 LBs, 25 DBs) …


Top 40

1. Zaven Collins, LB, Cardinals

Micah Parsons left the board 1st on Thursday night, but Collins followed quickly thereafter. He’s a clear winner on the size-speed front. Collins stands 6-5, 260 and delivered a 105.3 speed score (70th percentile for the position). The Cardinals quickly erased any questions about Collins' initial role by announcing that he'll take over the "Mike" job that had belonged to Jordan Hicks. Collins racked up 25 tackles for loss -- including 7.5 sacks -- across 3 seasons (32 games) at Tulsa. But the big guy also grabbed 4 INTs in just 8 contests last year and finished as Pro Football Focus’ top-graded coverage LB.


***UP*** 2. Micah Parsons, LB, Cowboys

Update: Parsons has not been slow to find a top role, as I feared. Instead, he and Keanu Neal appear to be shoving Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch aside. We already know that Parsons is a high-upside athlete. Throw in the playing time, and he could be an instant IDP star.

If you want to take Parsons over any of the LBs ahead of him on this list, I won’t fight to stop you. He certainly wins on athletic profile. Parsons’ 129.55 speed score not only leads this year’s class, it also tops each of the past 2 LB classes -- which included Isaiah Simmons (2020) and Devin White (2019). In addition to running a sub-4.4-second 40 at his pro day, Parsons delivered strong results in the 3-cone drill and broad jump. He was also no slouch last time he saw the field: 109 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, 5 sacks, 4 forced fumbles, 5 passes defensed for Penn State in 2019. Parsons then opted out last season. We’ll see whether that year away impacts his readiness for 2021. I’m dinging him more, though, for landing in a Dallas LB corps that still sports Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch. The Cowboys might well decline the 5th-year option on LVE -- we’ll find out this month -- given his health issues. Smith’s contract says he’ll likely remain a full-timer at least through 2022. At the least, Parsons looks like the worst bet for an immediate full-time role among my top 4 LBs. If you’re willing to overlook that for long-term upside, that’s fine. Perceived values can swing quickly even in this long-term market, though. So there’s a chance Parsons comes cheaper next offseason than this year.


3. Jamin Davis, LB, Washington

Davis also followed Parsons off the NFL Draft board, but Davis faces the clearer path to immediate playing time. Washington’s current LB depth chart sports Jon Bostic, Cole Holcomb and Josh Harvey-Clemons at the top. Only Bostic saw full-time duty for more than 6 games last season. HC Ron Rivera said after the draft that Davis can play all 3 LB positions in Washington’s defense. We’ll see whether he opens on the weak side or in the middle. But Davis should quickly earn full playing time. He showed in his lone starting season at Kentucky that he can convert the elite athleticism into production: 102 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 3 INTs.


4. Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB, Browns

Another LB over Parsons? JOK slipped to Round 2, but he still landed in a great spot for immediate opportunity. No Cleveland LB reached 80% snap share for the 2020 season, and only B.J. Goodson reached 52%. Owusu-Koramoah looks like the best bet to lead the 2021 crew in playing time. Browns decision makers said they were surprised to have a shot at him in Round 2 -- where they moved up to get him -- and most observers shared that shock. NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah rated him the 15th overall prospect, and Grinding the Mocks had him going 19th overall on average. JOK likely slipped because he’s just 221 pounds. But he flies around the field making big plays. He racked up 24.5 tackles for loss in just 25 games at Notre Dame, including 7 sacks (5.5 in 2019). He also defensed 7 passes and forced 5 fumbles. This guy looks like a 3-down, cross-category contributor.


5. Jaelan Phillips, DE, Dolphins

Kwity Paye commonly got mocked as the top edge player in this class, but Phillips wound up going 1st. That seemed to answer the biggest question on him: injury history. On the field, Phillips delivered 15.5 tackles for loss and 8 sacks in 10 games in his lone Miami season. Then he delivered the class’ 4th-best speed score in pre-draft testing and added 68th-percentile 3-cone time. Despite floating around college (he began at UCLA) for 5 years, he’ll be just 22 when his rookie campaign begins.


6. Kwity Paye, DE, Colts

Paye came off the board just 3 spots behind Jaelan Phillips. I wouldn’t be surprised, though, if he’s not ready to deliver numbers as early. Paye wins on athleticism, including a 114.6 speed score that rates 89th percentile among NFL edge defenders. He stands just 6’2.5 and 261 pounds, though. Paye tape also reveals a guy who could stand to develop his pass-rushing moves. He lands in a good spot for early opportunity, but the Colts also look well set up to work Paye in an end rotation for as long as they deem necessary. Depending on your league scoring and format -- as well as your roster construction -- you could even skip over Paye and the next edge defender for my 5th LB, if you’d like.


7. Nick Bolton, LB, Chiefs

Bolton goes to the same defense that drafted Wille Gay Jr. in the same round (2nd) just a year earlier. Bolton arrives as the much more accomplished college player. He amassed 198 tackles over 2 starting seasons at Missouri, including 16.5 tackles for loss. Bolton added 12 passes defensed. Although he didn’t match Gay’s 98th-percentile speed score and checks in slightly smaller, Bolton was a team leader and savage tackler in college. He hits the NFL as the safer bet for production than Gay, who limited himself to 5 games in his final college campaign with off-field issues. Of course, you don’t have to bet against Gay to bet on Bolton. There’s room for both to take the simultaneous lead -- as soon as this year -- in a LB corps that had no player reach 56% snap share in 2020.


8. Azeez Ojulari, EDGE, Giants

Despite waiting until Round 2 to address the position, the Giants landed a guy that some evaluators deemed the best pass-rusher in this class. Ojulari checks in a bit small -- 6’3, 249 -- but playing off the line can help balance any shortcoming there. He brings above-average speed score (103.8) and delivered tremendous final-season production. Ojulari racked up 12.5 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks in 10 games last year, earning Pro Football Focus’ 2nd-highest pass-rushing grade among 325 draft-eligible edge defenders. The only thing hurting his fantasy value -- at least in some leagues -- will be the LB designation that comes with playing in the Giants defense. That could change if the team alters schemes at any point, though.


9. Richie Grant, S, Falcons

This isn’t a great year for rookie safeties. But Grant stands out after landing in arguably the best situation for immediate upside. Atlanta shed its top 3 safeties this offseason, allowing Keanu Neal, Ricardo Allen and Damontae Kazee to walk. Then the Falcons traded back out of the spot in which Denver drafted RB Javonte Williams and made Grant the 2nd safety off the board at Pick 2.08. Grant compiled 258 tackles and 10 INTs over his final 3 seasons at Central Florida. That included a sophomore breakout campaign: 108 tackles, 6 INTs as a new starter. He should see immediate starting opportunity at the back of a weak Atlanta defense.


10. Pete Werner, LB, Saints
11. Baron Browning, LB, Broncos

We’ll have to watch the situations around these Ohio State teammates to see who makes for the better fantasy bet. Even though Werner went a little more than a round ahead of Browning, I’m leaning toward the latter for 1 key reason: Browning presents more athletic upside. His 108.5 speed score ranks 3rd among this off-ball LB class and rates 85th percentile. PlayerProfiler also gives Browning a 96th-percentile burst score and 94th-percentile agility score off his athletic testing. And his 9.98 Relative Athletic Score not only led all LBs in this class, but nearly reached the scale’s limit (10.00). Werner also checks in above-average in those categories -- just not as far above as his college teammate. Neither distinguished himself vs. the other in stat production at OSU. Both land in good situations for immediate opportunity. ESPN already has Werner penciled in as New Orleans’ MLB starter. That spot afforded just half playing time or less to Alex Anzalone over the past couple of years. We’ll see whether the same holds for Werner. In Denver, Browning doesn't appear headed for a 2021 starting gig.


12. Odafe Oweh, EDGE, Ravens

In case you hadn’t seen, this is Penn State’s Jayson Oweh. He plans to go by his given 1st name in the pros. He’ll also go by the ridiculous pro-day testing numbers that made sure everyone knows about him, including the 99th-percentile 40, 96th vertical, 99th broad jump and 94th 3-cone. Over the past 5 years, only Montez Sweat has posted a better speed score among edge prospects. Oweh failed to notch a sack in 2020 but averaged 0.93 tackles for loss per game and still garnered 1st-team All-Big Ten honors. He might sit higher on this list if the Baltimore landing didn’t mean a LB designation for most league-hosting sites.


13. Joe Tryon, EDGE, Buccaneers

Tryon landed with the champs at the end of Round 1 after opting out of 2020. The season before, he collected 8 sacks among 12.5 tackles for loss in 13 games. He’ll have at least a year to work into NFL form behind Jason Pierre-Paul and Shaq Barrett. But JPP’s contract runs out after this season, and he’ll turn 33 next January. Like every other edge/LB prospect to this point, Tryon supplied an above-average speed score (103.5).


14. Gregory Rousseau, DE, Bills

Rousseau showed plenty of promise in his lone full season of college action. He delivered 54 tackles, 19.5 tackles for loss and 15.5 sacks as a redshirt freshman for Miami in 2019. Then he opted out last season. Rousseau then reportedly disappointed at his pro day after adding weight, though his 4.73 adjusted 40 still make him a speed score winner (106.3). In Buffalo, he finds an experienced defensive staff with as good a chance to help him reach his ceiling as any group in the NFL. You just might need to be patient to reap benefits.


15. Payton Turner, DE, Saints

Like Rousseau, Turner looks like he’ll need a little time to maximize his NFL potential. He lost 3 total games last season to COVID and a knee injury that also kept him from testing in predraft season. Two years before that, Turner also lost a pair of games to a foot injury that required surgery. And he tore an ACL in his final high school season. Going to the Saints gives him room to develop, with Cameron Jordan and Marcus Davenport locked in as DE starters. 2020 third-rounder Zack Baun also figures to claim more edge snaps, with Trey Hendrickson gone to Cincinnati. Turner’s 10.5 tackles for loss and 5 sacks in just 5 games last year -- plus 11 career passes defensed -- point to the upside New Orleans is trying to mine.


16. Joseph Ossai, DE, Bengals

Trey Hendrickson’s new teammate in Cincinnati looks intriguing. A DE in high school, Ossai opened on the edge at Texas. Then he moved to an off-ball LB spot in 2019, leading the team in tackles (90), tackles for loss (13.5) and sacks (5). Back on the edge for 2020, Ossai racked up 16 tackles for loss and 5 sacks in just 9 games. He led the Big 12 in TFL and forced fumbles (3), en route to 1st-team all-conference honors. On tape, Ossai doesn’t look like a LB moved to the edge. He looks like a strong player with multiple moves and a high motor. Ossai might be blocked initially by Hendrickson and Sam Hubbard, but don’t be surprised if he works his way into the rotation soon.


***DOWN*** 17. Carlos Basham Jr., DE, Bills

Update: Basham looked ready to contribute quickly but he has been the slower of the 2 early edge defenders to assimilate -- playing with the backups in preseason games. I no longer see a reason to reach for Basham ahead of other edge players in this range.

Basham was the 2nd edge defender Buffalo drafted this year, but he looks like the more ready to deliver numbers quickly. Before being limited to 6 games in the COVID-shortened 2020, Basham tallied 29 tackles for loss and 14.5 sacks in 25 games over the previous 2 seasons. Even in his 6-game finale, Basham notched 5 sacks and 4 forced fumbles. At 6’3, 274 pounds, he delivered the edge class’ 2nd-best speed score (115.2), trailing only Odafe Oweh’s ridiculous testing. Basham and Gregory Rousseau figure to be measured against each other for years. If I were Rousseau, I’d be a little nervous. (And really tall.)


18. Jaycee Horn, CB, Panthers

The 1st CB off the board at #8 overall, Horn lands in a Panthers defense that should have him starting right away. That’s basically the edge for Horn over Surtain on my board. The former Gamecock grabbed just 2 INTs across 3 college seasons but defensed 25 passes in 30 contests.


19. Jevon Holland, S, Dolphins

Holland opted out of 2020, but he could immediately fight Bobby McCain for a starting job next to Eric Rowe if he proves ready. Holland stands a solid 6’0 and 207 pounds, with above-average speed (4.46). He snagged 9 INTs and defensed 19 passes over 2 seasons with Oregon before the opt out.


20. Caleb Farley, CB, Titans

Farley comes with big injury questions. He lost his freshman year to an ACL tear and had 2 back surgeries in the past year. Tennessee obviously felt comfortable enough to take him in Round 1, and I’m not worried about the risk for dynasty purposes. Even if Farley never gives us a meaningful NFL season, your roster will be OK. If he hits, though, he has the upside to be this class’ best corner. Farley arrived at Virginia Tech as a high school QB switching to WR. After the lost season, he moved to CB in spring 2018 and proceeded to deliver 6 INTs and 25 passes defensed over 2 years as a starter. Farley earned 1st-team All-ACC honors in 2019, led the conference in PDs (16) and returned 1 of his 4 picks for a TD. Horn is a safer option, as is Patrick Surtain II over the long term. But there’s nothing wrong with shooting for the ceiling here -- especially at fantasy’s most fungible position.


21. Christian Barmore, DT, Patriots

This is a weak class at DT, which adds value to Barmore. He had to wait until Round 2, but the former Alabama lineman still went 1st at the position -- 6th in the round to New England. Barmore delivered 8 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, 3 pass deflections and 9.5 total tackles for loss in his final Alabama season. PFF graded him the top pass-rusher in the country among all draft-eligible interior linemen. Bill Belichick should certainly know how to leverage Barmore's skills.


22. Ronnie Perkins, DE, Patriots

We'll have to watch Perkins' position designation. New England's system could easily land him at LB. New teammate Chase Winovich just got his position switched from DE to LB on MyFantasyLeague.com this offseason. At 6'2, 253 pounds, Perkins seems a strong candidate to do the same. He'll lose value in most leagues if that happens. But Perkins will be worth tracking after he notched 32 tackles for loss across 3 seasons at Oklahoma. That included 10.5 -- 5.5 sacks -- in just 6 games in 2020. The depth chart at edge in New England might be a little crowded for Perkins to get big playing time right away.


23. Andre Cisco, S, Jaguars

Cisco became the 1st freshman to lead the nation in INTs since 1998 when he picked 7 passes for Syracuse in 2018. He added another 5 in his 2nd season and defensed 29 passes for his career. Cisco appeared in just 2 games last season before an October ACL tear. He also lost 3 games to a lower-body injury the year before. We'll see whether the latest injury impacts his readiness for 2021. If he's ready, Cisco could push Jarrod Wilson for the FS job. Wilson is headed for unrestricted free agency in March.


24. Dayo Odeyingbo, DE, Colts

Odeyingbo will require patience if you draft him. Coming off a torn Achilles' tendon, he might need a "redshirt" year before contributing in the NFL. It says something about his upside, though, that he still came off the board 5th among edge defenders (22nd pick of Round 2). Odeyingbo delivered 20 tackles for loss in 20 games over the past 2 seasons. The injury kept him out of pre-draft testing. But if we can trust the reported 4.7-second 40 time, that would give the 276-pounder at 113.1 speed score. That basically matches the 87th-percentile number that Jaelan Phillips put up (113.2).


25. Trevon Moehrig, S, Raiders

Moehrig was near-universally expected to be the 1st safety of the board in the NFL Draft. Instead he went 3rd at the position, at Pick 11 of Round 2. Moehrig landed in a good spot for immediate opportunity, but he'll also likely be more of a FS to Johnathan Abram's SS. That sets Abram up with the better fantasy outlook in new DC Gus Bradley's defense.


26. Patrick Surtain II, CB, Broncos

If you're looking long term, then any of the Round 1 corners could go 1st among the group. At arguably fantasy's most fungible position, I'll let short-term outlook do some sorting here. Surtain looks like he has the toughest path to an immediate top-3 role among the first 3 CBs drafted. Denver signed Ronald Darby to a multi-year free-agent deal and added Kyle Fuller for 1 year at $9.5 million. The Broncos also still have slot CB Bryce Callahan on the roster at an $8.5 million cap number for 2021. Obviously, the team didn't know at the time of any of those signings that it would be drafting a corner inside the top 10. Still, the 2021 role uncertainty is enough to push Surtain down this board a bit.


27. Derrick Barnes, LB, Lions

Barnes tied for 6th in all of FBS with 6.7 solo tackles per game last season. He averaged a strong 0.8 tackles for loss per game over the past 3 years. Barnes arrives with a 71st-percentile speed score (103.6) and lands in a spot where he could quickly compete for a starting job. Detroit jettisoned LB Jarrad Davis this offseason and currently has Jahlani Tavai and Jalen Reeves-Maybin penciled into starting roles.


28. Monty Rice, LB, Titans

Rice's stat production didn't stand out across 4 years at Georgia. He did lead the team in tackles in 2019 but got passed in that category in 2020. Rice posted a 65th-percentile speed score (101.4) in pre-draft testing, though, and then landed in a good situation for opportunity. Tennessee brought back LB Jayon Brown on a 1-year deal this offseason. It also declined the 5th-year option on former 1st-round LB Rashaan Evans. That will likely remain the starting duo for 2021, but Rice could compete for a top job as soon as 2022.


29. Jabril Cox, LB, Cowboys

Cox tallied 6.5 tackles for loss and 3 INTs in his lone season at LSU. Before that, he spent 3 years racking up cross-category production at North Dakota State. That included 9.5+ tackles for loss each season, 14 total sacks (at least 4 each year), 6 INTs and 18 passes defensed. Cox will need to wait a little for his opportunity in Dallas, but Leighton Vander Esch appears likely to leave after this season. (The Cowboys declined his 5th-year option.) Jaylon Smith's contract and uneven play could also make him a potential cap casualty as soon as 2022.


30. Tony Fields II, LB, Browns

JOK is the big-name newbie at LB for the Browns, but this 5th-round pick also landed in the crowd of lackluster/unproven talent that is the Cleveland LB corps. Fields' best statistical season in college came when he was a 2017 freshman at Arizona: 104 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, 5 sacks, 1 INT. He checked in below-average in speed score, though (91.8). There's certainly a chance he becomes just another lackluster LB in Cleveland.


31. Garret Wallow, LB, Texans

Houston traded ILB Benardrick McKinney to Miami this offseason and signed 417 potential replacements. The "let's throw it all against the wall and see what sticks" approach clearly enhances the opportunity available to Wallow. At just 220 pounds, he's a below-average speed score prospect (90.2, 25th percentile). But he did, at least, test well in agility (84th-percentile 3-cone). Wallow -- who arrived at TCU as a safety -- amassed 287 tackles over the past 3 years, including 32.5 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks. His biggest line came in 2019: 125 tackles, 18 TFLs, 3.5 sacks. We'll see whether his build and skill set add up to NFL starting potential or if he settles in as just a special-teams guy.


32. Elerson Smith, EDGE, Giants

When you get to this point in a rookie draft, betting on a positive athletic outlier is not a bad idea. Smith arrives as a 6'6, 255-pound edge defender in a scheme that's likely to get him a LB designation in fantasy. That dings his fantasy outlook a bit. But Smith otherwise looks very interesting. He was lightly recruited out of high school -- perhaps because he weight just 190 at the time -- despite earning all-state honors at both TE (1st team) and DE (2nd team) as a senior in Minnesota. After a redshirt season and light use in 2017, he tallied 7.5 sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss in 2018. Then Smith earned 1st-team All-America honors in 2019 with 14 sacks, 14 hurries, 21.5 tackles for loss, 5 forced fumbles and 4 passes defensed. The 4th-round pick delivered the 18th-best relative athletic score ever among DEs. A Giants defense weak at the edge-rushing spots presents immediate playing opportunity.


33. Ernest Jones, LB, Rams

The Rams added another *shrug*-level prospect to their ILB corps in Round 3. Jones posted decent stats over 2 starting seasons at South Carolina, including 8.7 total tackles per game. He tied for 9th in the class in final-season solo-tackle share (10.9%) and ranked 6th in total-tackle share (14.5%). But Jones checked in a little below average in speed score at 230 pounds. He looks limited in coverage, stronger as a run defender -- which makes him look like a lighter, slower, less productive version of Micah Kiser. There's opportunity for any ILB on the Rams' depth chart right now, but that doesn't make Jones any better of a prospect.


34. Patrick Jones II, DE, Vikings

A year after drafting D.J. Wonnum (Round 4) and Kenny Willekes (Round 7), Minnesota spent a 3rd-round pick on Jones and then a 4th-rounder on Janarius Robinson. They're still looking for a suitable replacement for Everson Griffen to play opposite Danielle Hunter. With Hunter out, Yannick Ngakoue led last year's team with just 5 sacks -- and he only stuck around for 6 games. Jones led Pittsburgh in tackles for loss (12) as a junior and then posted 9 sacks as a senior to lead a Panthers defense with fellow draftee Rashad Weaver back (from an ACL tear). We don't have a speed score for Jones, because a hamstring issue kept him from running the 40 and 3-cone drill at his pro day. But he looks fine on the speed front. The battles for playing time on the Vikings D-line in 2021 will be interesting.


35. Adetokunbo Ogundeji, DE, Falcons

Ogundeji gave us nothing special on the production front in college, topping out at 7 tackles for loss each of the past 2 seasons. But he delivered above-average results in speed score (102.1) and the 3-cone drill (58th percentile). Best of all for his outlook, Ogundeji landed in a Falcons defense that desperately needs edge-rushing help.


36. Janarius Robinson, DE, Vikings

I gave Patrick Jones II the edge over Robinson here, given that Minnesota drafted him a round earlier. But Robinson brings a 71st-percentile speed score at 6'5, 266 pounds. He didn't translate that speed-size combo to much college production, notching just 8 total sacks and 20.5 tackles for loss across 4 years at Florida State. His final-year 0.9 tackles for loss per game ranked just 27th among this edge class.

37. Greg Newsome II, CB, Browns
38. Eric Stokes, CB, Packers
39. Asante Samuel Jr., CB, Chargers
40. Tyson Campbell, CB, Jaguars

There's nothing really separating this quartet of corners, all of whom got selected between Pick 26 and Pick 47 overall. Even though he was the last taken among the 4, Samuel might have the clearest path to immediate starting duty. The Chargers dumped Casey Hayward this offseason and return just-OK starter Michael Davis on the other side. Chris Harris Jr. remains but is at his best in the slot. Campbell probably faces the toughest road to immediate starter duty. Jacksonville drafted C.J. Henderson 9th overall last year, signed Shaq Griffin in free agency and retained Sidney Jones on a 1-year deal. Campbell figures to fight Jones for that 3rd spot.
