Edge

Dallas Turner (Alabama) figures to have a big showing this weekend as the most explosive and bendy edge in the class. Darius Robinson (Missouri) is going to rapidly rise up draft boards after the Combine and his Senior Bowl performance. He's a prototype of a Steve Spagnuolo edge. It might be a stretch for him to be on the board at pick 32 but the fit would be ideal with his inside/outside versatility.

Chop Robinson (Penn St.) was once thought of as the top edge prospect in this draft, he's lost some momentum since then but the Combine will suit him well. He has an elite first step and burst, and he could be one of the most athletic edges in the class.

Bralen Trice (Washington) is a high-motor, savvy rusher who could use a strong weekend in Indy. He is not the most bendy or agile rusher but his tape speaks for itself. If he can flash just enough agility he has a chance to be an early Day 2 pick.

Chris Braswell (Alabama) ranked 7th on Feldman's Freaks List, he was clocked at 21.9 MPH on GPS tracking while weighing 255 lbs and he can squat 700 lbs. He figures to be a big winner this weekend as well. Marshawn Kneeland (Western Michigan) was dominant in the MAC this year, strong agility and burst testing could have him firmly in the day 2 range.
