Obviously, there's the obvious top guys like Clelin Ferrell and Nick Bosa who headline this list, but I think these guys have upside and best fit the Steelers defense:

Jachai Polite DE/OLB Florida 6'2" 245lbs
This kid is a special athlete. He's an explosive athlete who uses his speed to make OT's lives miserable. Polite also owns a killer spin move and does a good job with his hands as well. While he has primarily been a pass rush specialist for Florida, he has immense upside and could be an elite next level rusher.

Oshane Ximines DE/OLB Old Dominion 6'2" 250lbs
Who? From where? While he's not the athlete that Polite is, what sets him apart is his polish as a defender. He not only can rush the passer but does a very good job in the run game. He has excellent hands and can get off blocks. He might not possess the upside of an elite pass rusher but his advanced game could allow him to see the field early.

D'Andre Walker OLB Georgia 6'3" 245lbs
Walker was a guy who caught my eye a year ago watching some Roquan Smith tape. Walker is long, athletic, and bends well for a guy his size. I also liked how his speed turned into power as he rushed the passer. I also thought he did a good job of setting the edge in run defense the few times I've watched him.

Sutton Smith LB Northern Illinois 6'1" 235lbs
He's already been discussed here but this guy is an absolute missile on the field. Quicker than every tackle he goes up against in the MAC, he arrives with bad intentions for the QB. I'm not sure he can stay at OLB for the Steelers but I'd also be interested in trying him as an ILB. I remember when Indiana was interested in this guy, the coaches weren't sure where he would play. Boy do I wish we would have gambled on him!

How about Burns from FSU?

I do like Burns, there’s a name I missed. Brian Burns, like the guys I’ve mentioned, shows an ability to dip his shoulder and use his bend to get to the QB.

What is the thought on Chase Winovich, DE, Michigan (6-2 258)

I'm not a fan of his overall athletic ability, think he's too mechanical moving and his change of direction skills don't translate well to the Steelers defense.

Winovich has some Mike Vrabel to his game.

I'd take Winovich over Williams in the middle.
