Class grade: C

Quick-twitch players who can come off the edge and terrorize opposing quarterbacks are what fuel a 3-4 scheme, thus they are in high demand. But many of the hybrid passer rushers in this draft class have glaring warts, like size limitations (USC’s Su’a Cravens and Oklahoma’s Eric Striker), character concerns (Spence and Baylor’s Shawn Oakman) or lackluster college productivity (Utah State’s Kyler Fackrell, pictured, and UM’s Tyriq McCord).
