2019 NFL Draft Position Rankings: Edge

Edge Rushers

Rankings by Steve Johnson

This year is LOADED with edge talent. Nick Bosa is this years top Edge Rusher, and possibly top overall pick. Brian Burns, Jachai Polite, Josh Allen, Montez Sweat, and Clelin Ferrell should all be first round picks. We could mention names for days as this year’s class is deep, having talent for both 30 and 40 front edge guys. I could see as many as seven go in Round 1.

*Note. Edge Rushers are what I project as Ends in 40 fronts and OLBs in 30 fronts. Obviously versatility is key in the NFL but these positions refer to base fronts.
