A.J. Epenesa

While quarterback is the position that every team wants to get right, and dedicates a lot of salary cap to, defensive end might be the next one. Any team that can effectively rush the passer, has a ripple effect through the rest of the defense that will cover weaknesses.

This is why teams are usually trying to find diamonds in the rough or players that still have room to grow. A.J. Epenesa would certainly fit into that description and could be a player who receives a bigger than expected contract.

Epenesa over the past two years has been an effective pass rusher in a limited role as he has had 13 sacks over the past two years after playing only about 40% of the defensive snaps. There are some teams that desperately need a pass rusher that believe with more playing time, Epenesa will only improve those sack totals.
