Florida Atlantic’s Trey Hendrickson led all edge defenders in this draft class in terms of pass-rush productivity rating, with nine sacks, 13 hits and 55 hurries on 318 pass rushing snaps.
Washington’s Joe Mathis was getting pressure at an impressive rate before injury ended his season, with five sacks, four hits and 21 hurries 120 pass rushing snaps.
There’s no denying that Texas A&M’s Myles Garrett is tremendously talented, but the consensus top player in this draft class ranked just 21st in PRP rating in 2016.
