2020 NFL Draft Javon Kinlaw

This post will serve as the initial list of Defensive Lineman prospects that I will be watching for the 2020 NFL Draft. This class looks very strong at the top, initially.

The players listed below are posted in no particular order. They are broken down by class. As posted in the DFD State of the Union, I will only initially be watching 300 total prospects in the fall.

If another defensive lineman jumps out to me in the lead up to the 2019 season (or during), I will replace one on this list. I have an initial production score for each player on this list. As I watch the tape, on each this summer (or fall), the initial rankings will come together.

Throughout the next week, I will be posting each position’s initial rankings.

Initial prospect rankings: QB, RB, WR, TE, OT, IOL, EDGE
