Connor Barwin, OLB, Texans

His sack total dipped from 11.5 in 2011 to three last year. But he played 94 percent of Houston’s defensive snaps. He also switched positions during the season. A target for 3-4 teams. He’s also only 26.

Jared Cook, TE, Titans

A 6-4, 235-pounder with the athleticism of a big receiver. He had a career-high four TDs last year and doesn’t turn 26 until April. Could become a star in a better offense with a better quarterback.

Rey Maualuga, MLB, Bengals

In a market virtually devoid of quality inside linebackers stands a special 6-1, 254-pounder with 59 starts at age 26.

Cliff Avril, DE, Lions

He’s not the most complete player, but he’s the kind of good, young pass rusher that rarely hits the open market. At 26, he also has plenty of time to become a great pass rusher..

Louis Vasquez, RG, Chargers

He turns only 26 in April. A 6-4, 330-pounder with 54 starts in 54 games.

Sean Smith, CB, Dolphins

He’s not the most consistent player, but he’s 25 years old and plays cornerback at 6-3, 218 pounds.
