Ray Edwards is likely to leave via free agency but the Vikings have Brian Robison and Everson Griffin and I believe Robison is perfectly capable of filling Edwards’ shoes and will probably be more productive. I do not, therefore, think the Vikings will pick a defensive end high in the draft. If they do, I think it will likely be in the sixth or seventh round. Nevertheless, the following are the top five defensive ends in the 2011 NFL draft, according to DraftCountdown.com.

  1. Robert Quinn
  2. Da’Quan Bowers
  3. Aldon Smith
  4. Adrian Clayborn
  5. Ryan Kerrigan
