2.) CHRIS BORLAND, Wisconsin (5-11, 248 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Short, active, athletic, instinctive tackling machine who will have to overcome physical limitations to establish himself as a dependable, long-term starter… more.

2.) ANTHONY BARR, UCLA (6-5, 255 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
 A highly disruptive, athletic specimen with the pass-rush potential to effortlessly emerge as a double-digit sack producer… more.

3.) RYAN SHAZIER, Ohio State (6-1, 237 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
The Big Ten's leading tackler, Shazier flies around the field and his unique athletic ability stands out… more.

4.) TRENT MURPHY, Stanford (6-5, 250 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
As a base end in an even front or a LOLB in an odd front, Murphy's instincts, motor and toughness are what define his success… more.

A high school quarterback turned pass rusher who broke out with 14.5 sacks as a senior… more.
