Interior Defensive Linemen
Rankings by Steve Johnson
Quinnen Williams and Ed Oliver lead the pack here, battling it out for the Number 1 overall pick with Nick Bosa and maybe a QB. The position is deep, with 4-6 potential first rounders and a handful of day two picks. Clemson produces two potential first round picks in Christian Wilkins and Dexter Lawrence. Jeffery Simmons should also land in the first round.

*Note. Interior Defensive Linemen are what I project as inside DTs in 40 fronts and DEs or NTs in a 30 fronts. Obviously versatility is key in the NFL but these positions refer to base fronts.
