The Football Dungeon Explosive Edge Rushers list is not a perfect formula. However, the measurements to make the list are very simple.

It makes perfect sense why so many NFL War Rooms are excited about the Edge Rushers in the 2017 NFL Draft. Every NFL executive, coach, and scout are trying to find the next Von Miller.

Only 42 players made the list from 1999-2017 (19 years), and 5 players (11%) are from the 2017 draft class.

  • T.J. Watt
  • Derek Rivers
  • Jordan Willis
  • Tyus Bowser
  • Vince Biegel

Criteria to make the Explosive Edge Rushers list:

  • Must be sub 7.00 second Three Cone
  • Must be sub 4.70 second Forty
  • Must have participated in both the Forty and Three Cone at the NFL Combine
  • Weight must be 240 or above

Eligible Combine participants from 1999 to present
