    Isn't Epenesa's 40 similar to Trey Flowers?

    Epenesa is heavier. Exact same arm/hand. Trey did better in the 40, 4.93 and everywhere else. Except 3C was exact same I believe. I still like him but won't have a 1st on him.

    Lots of really solid guys in this draft. Not a lot of great athletes though. Young is obviously a true edge threat and sure to go near the top. Yetur Gross-Matos is basically an equal threat in my mind though, with his strength and hand usage. Terrell Lewis is second only to Chase Young in terms of athleticism and pass rush diversity off the edge. He looks likes a star.

    For everyone else, I like Jonathan Greenard, Khalid Kareem, and Julian Okwara as other 3 down ends. I don't really like them as standup guys though; they should have their hand in the dirt.

    Anfernee Jennings looks okay as a pure 3rd down rusher and 3-4 OLB. Not in love with his 3 down profile.

    Azur Kamara looks solid as more of a pure LB on the edge (not a pass rusher per se, but a run stopper and coverage guy).

    Chaisson doesn't impress me. Shades of Arden Key and Barkevious Mingo.

    Epenesa looks solid as a 5 tech in the right defense, but I wouldn't build my defense around a guy like that.

    Willekes didn't impress.

    Interesting analysis. Kyed concludes "[Zach] Baun, [Casey] Toohill, [Jonathan] Greenard and [Derrek] Tuszka are players that particularly stand out to us."

    In particular, Epenesa would be one of the worst athletes the Pats have drafted (great size, but below average in every athletic measurement).
