2007 NFL Draft defensive end rankings

Frank Coyle's analysis of the class:

This is a fine class of senior defensive ends that improved significantly with the addition of a few solid underclassmen.

Senior prospects like Gaines Adams, Quentin Moses, Adam Carriker, LaMarr Woodley and Victor Abiamiri make this a strong group that produce many early selections.


POSITION
GRADE
A

Several key juniors like Jamaal Anderson, Jarvis Moss and Charles Johnson make this a special position and probably the strongest area on defense.

There could be as many as five prospects selected in the first round with at least 10 chosen over the first 100 selections.
