NFL Draft Preview: Defensive Linemen
The Blue Chips
DE Brian Orakpo, Texas
Widely regarded as the draft's top pass-rushing prospect.
DT B.J. Raji, Boston College
A possible top 10 pick who is an effective pass rusher, with eight sacks last season, as well as a run-stuffer.
DE Aaron Maybin
The question about the Ellicott City product is whether he's big enough to play defensive end for a 4-3 team.
DE Tyson Jackson, LSU
Could be a defensive tackle for a 4-3 team or an end for a 3-4 defense.
