The 2020 NFL Draft class is absolutely loaded with talent, and defensive linemen/EDGE rushers are no exception. With so many highly-touted prospects likely to cloud the first round, this abundance of talent can make it hard to nail down which players will be going off the board, and in what order beyond the consensus top DE, Chase Young.

However, thanks to the NFL Draft odds, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook, we can get a much clearer picture on exactly how these prospects stack up against one another when comparing their odds to be the first DL selected based on projected over/under draft positions. With that in mind, here's a look at the top defensive linemen/EDGE rushers in this year's draft class as ranked by those collective odds.
