No. 2 Randy Gregory: 9 Sacks

Why he’s this high

With his get-off ,length and athleticism, the 6’6″, 245 pound Gregory has more upside than all of the 2015 edge rushers. There are times that he really wows you with the speed and range that he has to chase quarterbacks down with. When he’s not beating opposing tackles around the corner, he uses his length and hand speed to slap their hands down en route to the quarterback.

Why he’s not No. 1

Gregory doesn’t have a whole lot of moves as he depends way too much on his speed to get around the corner. He needs to to get stronger too as he doesn’t have a real bull rush and can get manhandled at times. I also fear he’s too much like Jadeveon Clowney as he doesn’t have great production and can disappear, making you look too hard for him on tape.
