John Jenkins, Georgia

The strong defensive tackle battled a weight problem down the stretch of his college career, ballooning to 370 pounds. He’s since shed nearly 35 pounds of that and hopes to wow NFL teams with his hard-to-move presence as a nose tackle. He may best fit in a 3-4 scheme and won’t be a major pass rush threat. But at his best, Jenkins’ combination of size and quickness is eye catching.

THE SLEEPER

Lavar Edwards, Louisiana State

Teammate Barkevious Mingo is an elite defensive end, a likely top 20 pick with a sleek frame and great speed. LSU’s Sam Montgomery is also more heralded. But with an underrated combination of speed and energy, Edwards may be a mid-round steal for one lucky team.
