Top 5 Defensive Ends in the ACC | 2018 Season

Nice...how many others graduating? Alton is poised to have a huge year next year!
 
The big difference between Alton and the other 4 was stopping the run, as they each had significantly more tackles (Zach Allen had double) than him. He's already demonstrated he's a top notch pass rusher. If he can show he's more than that next year, he will be a top pick.

See I saw him improve on that each game a little bit. Beginning season sometimes he would run past tackle too deeply and take himself outta the play and or create a running seam for the Rb. Towards the end he wasn’t doing that and he also was squeezing tackle down a bit on rundowns which closes gabs a bit
 
Don't think Allen should be ahead of him. Allen doesn't make enough impact plays like the rest of players on this list.

Not as good a pass rusher, but 61 tackles and 15 TFL, along with 6.5 sacks, are nothing to sneeze at.

It's good but the impact plays are low. 24% of his tackles where behind the line of scrimmage. Compare that to Alton Robinson who has 55% of his tackles are behind the line of scrimmage. That is a huge difference. There no way should Allen be ahead of Alton.
 
Allen was a beast many games and was a focal point of teams blocking schemes. he was also playing hurt much of the year.
 
Is it possible Alton gets drafted this year?
He is not declaring for the draft from everything I've seen.
Plus this might be the deepest DL draft in a really long time.
