2021 NFL Draft: Breaking down the top three edge rushers
The 2021 NFL draft is less than a month away and there are some rankings on top prospects yet to be released.
The closer the draft gets, the more content you will see pumped out about the big event. The draft is the largest event for the NFL during their offseason period. It sees players have dreams become reality and fans watch players acquired in real-time. It is a very exciting time as these next crop of future stars in the league get their start where every player has started.
Those hopes are becoming reality for these men even if that means not being selected during the seven rounds. This group of edge rushers is not the best so if your team needs one, they better select one of these three. There are some nice athletes in this class that could be molded into a good player but none that stands out when compared to previous classes.
Azeez Ojulari, Georgia
Azeez Ojulari has been creeping up draft boards since the season concluded and that is because he is young and athletic. Those two traits will interest many NFL teams in the first round because he still has room to grow and he can do that while he plays. He seems to fit in the later portions on the first night of the draft like many of the edge rushers so expect that to happen.
His hands are so quick and deadly that it caused many to rank him high on their boards. His ability to get after the passer is one of the best across all positions and not just the edge position. Ojulari will have to fill out his frame at the next level because his weight is low but that should be expected with his age. As long as he fills out to an NFL weight then this player will be an issue every week.
