9. Auburn DE/OLB Jeff Holland

Previous rank: Fifth
Stock report: Holland’s stock slipped at the combine. Holland (6-1, 249) ran a 4.79 40 and didn’t lift, but he’s still in the early second-round discussion because of his pass-rushing ability. Holland had 10 sacks and four forced fumbles last season.
Quotable: “I just want to show them I’m a relentless pass rusher,” Holland said at the combine. “I love the game. That’s the No. 1 thing. I can pass rush. I’m a football player. I think I can work on my run-stopping ability. I’m not a perfect player. No one is perfect.”
