Bessire: DE/OLB Rank and Proj.

Last Updated: 9/15/2014 6:06 PM ET

Projections for every ranked defensive end and outside linebacker are below. Players are ranked based on PredictionMachine.com's 2013 projected statistics for what each player would be expected to do as a 16 game starter on a totally average NFL team against a completely average NFL schedule. Read more about how rankings and projections are done (also includes 2012 rankings and projections). See biographical and statistical data on each defensive end and outside linebacker prospect here

This year, we have added an impact score (0 - 10 scale) for each player that is a relative value based on the projections that can put players in context across positions and draft classes. In the score, a seven or above can generally outperform a replacement player in the NFL at his position as a rookie; an eight or above can be expected to start and a player with a rating over nine is a unique, standout player who could star.

As a matter of context, at this time last year, using the same process leveraged for 2013 below (independent of actual drafting teams), the top five defensive ends last season had scores of: Vinny Curry (7.8), Nick Perry (7.8), Quinton Coples (7.7), Jared Crick (7.2) and Andre Branch (7.1). Top Outside Linebackers received scores of: Courtney Upshaw (8.7), Melvin Ingram (8.4), Bruce Irvin (8.1), Danny Trevathan (7.9) and Lavonte David (7.9).
