Alright we are here to talk about the big boys of the defensive line headed to the NFL Combine and Draft. There are a few sleepers in this draft class that could get much more attention before the draft.
So I got the opportunity to speak to @DLineVids on twitter about the upcoming DLine class, and he gave me a few answers.
SH: How do you feel about the this DLine class going into the NFL?
DLV: Very confident about this class and their skill set translating very easily to the NFL. Lots of talented defensive linemen and OLB’s.
SH: Who do you have as the sleeper in the draft?
DLV: Small sleeper for me is Maurice Hurst out of Michigan. He reminds me of Aaron Donald. Easily a first round talent. He’s bouncing around the lower first/early second rounds in mock drafts, but don’t be surprised if a team like the Redskins (13th pick) or the Lions (20th) take him.

SH: Was there anyone that entered the Draft that you feel should have stayed in school?
DLV: I’m sure there’s a couple who could benefit from an extra year, but if they feel they’re ready then they’re ready.
The NFL combine is fast approaching, and the Dline will be a group we will be watching intently. If you want more DLine videos or techniques you could use to become a better defensive line player, go check out DLineVids.
