5. Vincent Valentine
2015 story: A knee injury last year held Valentine to just seven starts in 10 appearances, in which he produced three sacks, four tackles for loss and 10 total tackles. Much to the puzzlement of many draft pundits, Valentine decided to forgo his final year of eligibility at Nebraska and roll the dice in the draft.
Why he’s ranked at No. 5: Look, Valentine is an extremely talented player. At times, he is utterly dominating, which is why he gets pegged above Vellano, Hamilton and Johnson in this ranking. However, Valentine still has to put to rest the consistency critics, which is why he remains in the back half of the depth chart entering training camp.
