2020 NFL Draft Edge & Defensive Line Rankings: Chase Young Reigns Supreme

2020 NFL Draft Edge Rusher Rankings: Ohio State's Chase Young

Getty 2020 NFL Draft Edge Rusher Rankings: Ohio State's Chase Young

Welcome to our 2020 NFL Draft defensive line and edge rusher rankings. Players designated with the edge rusher position are ones who typically line up as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 defensive scheme, or put their hand in the dirt, working as a defensive end in a 4-3. The defensive line designation or “DL” will be used for players who work as a 4-3 tackle or play a 1-5 technique in a 3-4 scheme.

Reminder: These are player rankings, not a Mock Draft. Just because we may grade a player higher on our board than another player, doesn’t mean we projected them to be the higher selection come draft day.
