Senior Bowl Positional Rankings- Defense
1. Cameron Jordan, California- Jordan has been the most dominant player at the Senior Bowl at any position, and he is skyrocketing up draft boards. Jordan has shown burst off the edge and great strength, as he's perfect as an end in a 3-4 system or can play inside in a 4-3.
2. Ian Williams, Notre Dame- Williams has been dominant for two practices as he's taken up residence in the East Team's backfield. The former Notre Dame defensive tackle has great power and has been nearly impossible to block.
3. Pernell McPhee, Mississippi State- McPhee is a classic 3-4 defensive end who has held up very well against the run. In a 4-3 system, McPhee would likely play left end.
4. Sione Fua, Stanford- This California native has been a disruptive force in the middle as he reminds many of 2010 Top 10 draft pick, Tyson Alualu.
5. Jarvis Jenkins, Clemson- Jenkins has been a nice surprise this week as he's clogged the middle for the South Team. The former Tiger has been a busy man as he's talked to several teams this week.
1. Greg Jones, Michigan State- Greg Jones has been all over the field and he reminds some of Houston Texans star linebacker, DeMeco Ryans. Jones can be a plug-and-play guy as a rookie and will likely lead his team in tackles.
2. Nate Irving, North Carolina State- Irving has impressive size and can play inside in both 4-3 and 3-4 schemes. Irving has impressed scouts all week long.
3. Von Miller, Texas A & M- Miller is purely an outside linebacker on the next level who plays better going downhill. Miller could be the best pure rush-backer in this draft.
4. Brooks Reed, Arizona- Reed is a 'tweener at 6'2", 257 lbs. as he played mostly with his hand on the ground at Arizona but will have to transition to linebacker on the next level. Reed has shown good speed and solid coverage ability for a player of his size and lack of experience.
5. Kelvin Sheppard, LSU- Sheppard looks the part of a great linebacker but showed inconsistent hands. He has good instincts and an ability to shed blocks.
1. Rashad Carmichael, Virginia Tech- Carmichael has been a ball-hawk this week as he's had interceptions in each practice. Carmichael has been a popular man amongst the scouts.
2. Quinton Carter, Oklahoma- The Fiesta Bowl champion has shown great hips and feet and has blanketed opposing wide receivers. Carter may be able to play both corner and safety on the next level.
3. Kendric Burney, North Carolina- When Burney is up, he's shadowed opposing receivers as well as anyone at the Senior Bowl. A few moments of inconsistency are why he isn't ranked higher.
4. Ahmad Black, Florida- The undersized safety has shown great sideline to sideline coverage ability this week but there are questions whether he has enough size to play safety on the next level.
