One of my favorite position groups in this class, the interior defensive lineman are very solid most of the way through.

Everyone ranked 1 through 13 (Leonard through Bennett) I have round three grades or better on. I’m lower on Shelton and Bennett than most and higher on Davis and Anderson.

Outside of Leonard, I don’t see any of these players being targets for the Raiders.
