    I think Wilkins vs Thompson is a legitimate debate. I feel like Wilkins will prove to be the better prospect, and he should be much more disruptive, since he'll play inside, this year. With 9 PD in 2016, everything is setting up for Wilkins to break out in a big way.

    Thompson had the benefit of playing inside more than Wilkins, but he's already arrived to some extent. His 2016 season is similar to Muhammad Wilkerson's 2009 in terms of production across the board. And, he appears to be in Wilkins' range as an athlete.

    I'm seeing Wilkins ranked behind Vea and Thompson ranked behind a group of players on many sites. As usual, you're way out in front.

    Becker is frustrating. He has the PR traits you look for in a DT: upfield burst, slipperiness/UOH but his sack production is nonexistent. All he had was a QBH against UF. He has a chance to ascend this year, also could be more explosive with another year away from the knee. I love this DT class.

    A more athletic Danny Shelton? I'm salivating over Vea

    He's been a force this season. There were glimpses last year but man has he turned it on. Getting better every game too. He was splitting double teams multiple times against the aggies in no time flat. Spends damn near all game in the backfield. Lots of room for muscle on that frame too. His stock will continue to go up as the season goes on.

    Him and Jefferson will probably declare but at least we'll get another season of Zuniga.

    I know this is the homer in me but McIntosh should definitely be higher. I see him as a 4th rounder at the moment

    He might be a 4th rounder at some point. Although to me he's the least talented kid on Miami's defensive line.

    He can play a little bit, just don't think as highly of him as I do the other players on Miami's DL, and there's so many of these other young DT's ranked here that I like a little more at this point. That's just the way it is. Watch all of em and you'll see.

    You also have to understand some of these guys toward the bottom of the list can move up automatically if they come out this year because I don't expect any of the RS Sophomore here to declare, and many of the Juniors may not either.

    In other words, if you cut this list down to just the underclassman that end up declaring for the draft, it looks quite different.
