    BoomGoesTheDynamite got a reaction from Falcons Fan MVP in Tevin Coleman or Matt Bryant? Which one are we more likely to regret letting walk?   
    Coleman. Nothing against Money, but Coleman leaving D's in the dust was a thing of beauty to watch sometimes and he was real threat at receiving.
    If he hadn't of gone down with an ankle injury in the SB, I think things would have been different, but that's me.

    As much as I don't like the Pats, I gotta give props to Bill. The son of gun can take nearly any player, put them in his scheme, and get very good results (sometimes better than the previous team any said player was on before).
    D.T. is gonna showout in NE if he stays healthy.

    I agree. I actually hope he can revive his career. Last season was his worst. People act like he’s just been doing bad for years

    EDGE Rankings
    by: Benjamian Solak
    Tis the season to finalize some boards and type up some positional rankings! Oh, what a month April is.
    Every day for the next couple weeks, I'll be dropping another position's rankings, as we get closer and closer to the 2019 NFL Draft in Nashville. These positional rankings will all be built through The Draft Network's Build Your Own Big Board function, which is a great way to build out your own positional rankings, if that's something you like to do.
    My grades are calculated through graded film scores, athleticism scores, and production scores. Players who have significant red flags (such as injury or athletic testing) are marked as such, but they aren't penalized for those red flags. Red flags would apply only in an actual draft setting, where those players wouldn't be selected unless they were significantly the best value player remaining on the board.
     
    1.  Nick Bosa EDGE, Ohio State
    Bosa is my EDGE1, though not OVR1, which is an honor that belongs to Quinnen Williams. That said, both are Top-10 grades, and there's nothing wrong with Nick Bosa's game. Hand technique, power, explosiveness, bend -- he profiles as a double-digit sack guy in the league. Are there really teams that prefer Kentucky EDGE Josh Allen over Bosa? Apparently, but I'm not even nearly there. Allen is my EDGE4, as you can see below. I love the athletic ability, but he isn't nearly the polished rusher that Bosa is, let alone Burns and Sweat.
    Grade: Top-10
    2.  Brian Burns EDGE, Florida State
    Burns just barely missed out on a Top-10 grade on my scale, but he remains a Top-5 player overall in this class and an absolute stud of a human being. A phenom around the edge, Burns' ability to finish his rushes is woefully underappreciated. Burns can turn a corner like the best of them, but his body control, balance, and length coming in for the sack make him a high-impact player. Burns' fit at the next level isn't so much about 3-4/4-3, as he can rush with his hand down or standing up, but the wider alignments he plays in, the bigger impact he'll make in Year 1.
    Round Grade: Early 1

    3. Montez Sweat EDGE, Mississippi State
    I think I'm higher on Sweat than anybody else on staff here -- coming into the season, he was a Round 1 grade off of my film watch, and that hasn't changed now. Elite testing at an unbelievable size certainly helps. Sweat's NFL-ready body and elite length make him a high-floor player in Round 1, as he won't be easily bullied in the trenches and can immediately challenge smaller tackles with his long-arm and bull rush. I'd like to see more from Sweat in terms of maximizing his first step with outside track rushes, but as a traditional 4-3 end, he's worth a Top-10 pick.
    Round Grade: Mid 1
    4. Josh Allen EDGE, Kentucky
    I don't love Josh Allen, even though he's a Top-15 player for me. I think it's just the relative floor/ceiling discussion in the rest of the class -- Allen is more of a project than any EDGE in my Top-6. He would be an easily-justifiable Round 1 pick in any year, but in this class, I'd prefer one of the more Year 1 ready options. Allen wins off of his first step, which is an elite trait and at times, all he needs to author a successful rush. As he continues to develop his hand usage at the top of the arc, he's got a double-digit sack ceiling, especially for a team that lets him stand up on the outside.
    Round Grade: Mid 1
    5.  Clelin Ferrell EDGE, Clemson
    Ferrell isn't a thrilling player, but he's a fine and well-rounded one, who should immediately step in as a starter regardless of the scheme that selects him. Ferrell's at his best with his hand in the dirt, and often wins in the first three steps with great initial hand usage, multiple inside counters, and a wonderful feel for timing and space. Dude's as smart of a rusher as you'll see come out of college. Ferrell's a little stiff, and tested like an average athlete, so he's not a high ceiling player and might be better served as the EDGE2 on his future squad. But you need two guys who can get after the quarterback anyway, so he has a lot of value.
    Round Grade: Mid 1
    6.  Jachai Polite EDGE, Florida
    Where do you draft Jachai Polite? Oh man, I wish I could tell ya. On film, dude's my EDGE3 and worthy of a Top-10 selection -- but there's so much bust potential in his profile right now. I'm not nearly as concerned about the weight or the testing as I am about the clear disregard for teams and the Draft process. Polite seems flippant and self-impressed, and that doesn't play well with coaches at all. Polite wins with a wicked first step, a great sense of timing up the arc, and a loose frame that can bend and change direction on command. If you can get him on the field and keep him motivated and interested, he's as good a pass-rusher as you can find in Round 1.
    Round Grade: Early 2
    7.  Rashan Gary EDGE, Michigan
    Is Gary an EDGE, or he an iDL? On my scale, he grades out just a little better on the outside, though obviously he's going to be a tweener player. Gary deserves reps from the 3-technique and everywhere wider. Gary's athletic ability illustrates his best rushes, but it's important to acknowledge that he has a strong base of hand usage that a coach should be able to build on -- powerful strike, great upper body strength, good length. If you can help Gary develop his power rush and build his game off of that, he has the potential to be an elite match-up rush player who can stay on the field for all three downs. I'm in on that for Round 2.
    Round Grade: Mid 2
    8.  Chase Winovich EDGE, Michigan
    Chase! What a fun player to watch, man. Winovich receives due credit for a hot motor and aggressive play style, but as we've said at TDN for a while, this dude's a legit pass rusher with the athleticism and technique to start in the NFL. Winovich's fit is the trickiest aspect of his game, as he likely needs to stand up on the EDGE, but lacks great feel for dropping into space and affecting passing lanes. As such, you need to get him into a highly attacking role early, and potentially work on his ability to play with his hand in the dirt. That said, this is the guy you want as your EDGE2 on long-and-late downs.
    Round Grade: Late 2
    9.  Anthony Nelson EDGE, Iowa
    Anthony Nelson isn't quick. We gotta start there, and acknowledge that as the starting point. Off of the line, he labors to gain depth and doesn't threaten the initial set of the tackle. At the NFL level, bigger bodies and long tackles will be able to beat him to landmarks and really challenge his hand usage and bend in a way Big 10 tackles didn't. But that said, Nelson is a fantastic cornering player at his size, with great hand usage, power, and navigation of tight spaces. Because of his length and strength, Nelson is a high-floor Year 1 player with the ability to compromise pocket depth regularly. How many rushes will he finish?
    Round Grade: Late 2
    10.  Christian Miller EDGE, Alabama
    When I go to sleep at night, I think about the Christian Miller sack early in the Oklahoma game. It soothes me and makes me smile. Miller can run under a table, and I don't care about injury history -- that skill will always get you drafted a decent spot. It likely won't be Round 2, but getting Miller as an EDGE3 or 4 allows you to manage his load and only pitch him on long-and-late downs when he'll benefit from wider alignments and deep quarterback drops. Miller's the value player in this draft.
    Round Grade: Late 2
