No. 3: Shane Ray: 14 sacks

Why he made the list

He doesn’t have all the moves that Kikaha has but his burst off the edge is incredible as he is extremely athletic. His production is a confirmation of his skill-set as his 14 sacks are good enough for third in the FBS right now. To go with that tremendous burst and quick get-off his the motor to relentlessly hunt quarterbacks every Saturday.

Why he’s not higher

As good as that one trick is, he’s a 1-trick pony and his speed isn’t going to get him out of everything when he gets to the NFL. I didn’t see any real bull rushing type of power, his spin move was weak and he didn’t work that well with his hands. It looks to me like he has a lot to learn about the pass rush game but if he learns it, he’s going to be special with all that athleticism.
