2022 NFL Draft Prospects: Edge Rushers

2021 stats: 12 games; 62 tackles (34 solo), 18 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, 1 pass defensed, 2 forced fumbles

Both sides of the ball: Ebiketie, a Cameroon native, played at Albert Einstein High School in Maryland and excelled on both sides of the ball, playing linebacker and wide receiver. As a senior, he recorded an incredible 21.5 sacks.

Trapasso’s take: “I’m higher on Ebiketie than seemingly anyone – I have a mid-first-round grade on him – and he’s likely to be available in the second round. He’s a complete pass rusher – burst, bend, pass-rushing moves, surprising power – it’s all there. At similar size to Boye Mafe, he, in theory, has 3-4 outside linebacker size, but if the Vikings draft him, it’ll be to disrupt the edges of the opposition’s offensive line.”
