‘The Rock’ on NFL draft: What are some big name players to watch?

The Rock has made it clear that he will be in line for a raise this year.

With that said, he also has a list of some players that he would like to see get a raise in the near future.

Here is his list: 1.

New England Patriots DT Jabaal Sheard, who is expected to be a top-10 pick.

The Patriots’ defensive line was supposed to be one of the best in the league last year.

Sheard was the second-best player in the NFL last season.

He recorded a sack in 11 games and recorded 4.5 sacks in the regular season.

In addition, he was one of only two defensive tackles (along with New England’s Jabaali Jones) who registered double-digit sacks.


New York Jets DT Leonard Williams, who was selected No. 2 overall in the 2016 NFL draft.

Williams has a chance to be the first player to reach the Pro Bowl since Terrell Suggs in 2011.

He had four sacks in 2017.


Pittsburgh Steelers DT Aaron Donald, who made a name for himself with his pass rush.

The Steelers’ defensive tackle recorded eight sacks last season and recorded five sacks in 2018.


Carolina Panthers DT Kony Ealy, who has been a top pass rusher in the Panthers’ defensive front seven since he was drafted No. 4 overall in 2016.

Ealy had three sacks last year, including a pair in the divisional round against the Eagles.


Oakland Raiders DT Joey Bosa, who will be a first-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft after a stellar rookie season.

Bosa recorded four sacks and two forced fumbles in the first two seasons of his career, and was named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.


Chicago Bears DT Solomon Thomas, who had a productive season in 2018, but was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in January.

The Bears were expected to get a big jump on the market with the acquisition of J’Marcus Webb.


San Francisco 49ers DT Kawann Short, who recorded 6.5 tackles for loss, six sacks and five quarterback hurries last season, including two in the NFC Championship Game against the Falcons.


Dallas Cowboys DT Myles Garrett, who played in all 16 games in 2018 and recorded 8.5 total tackles for a loss and seven sacks.


Cincinnati Bengals DT Kevin Zeitler, who started in all 17 games in 2019 and recorded 12.5 stops for a total of 11.5 for a career-high 5.5.


Green Bay Packers DT Aaron Jones, who posted a career high of 6.0 sacks last summer.

Jones has a knack for finishing plays and making plays on the ball, but it would be interesting to see him earn a raise for his play in the next two seasons.


Cleveland Browns DT Tamba Hali, who averaged 7.5 pressures in 2017, and posted five sacks, including one sack in the AFC Championship Game, against the Colts.


San Diego Chargers DT Melvin Ingram, who won the Defensive Player of the Year award in 2018 after recording 8.0 tackles for and three sacks in three years at LSU.


Kansas City Chiefs DT Derek Rivers, who led the NFL in sacks in 2019 after recording six sacks last spring.


Chicago Panthers DT Jordan Willis, who scored five tackles in the preseason opener for the Bears.


New Orleans Saints DT Dominique Easley, who became a free agent after spending four seasons with the Giants, the Bills and Lions.


Detroit Lions DE Ziggy Ansah, who also played for the Browns, Eagles and Titans.


Buffalo Bills DT Aaron Williams, the second overall pick in 2018 who recorded 9.5 combined tackles for losses, two sacks and three forced fumbling last season in the Bills’ 3-4 defense.


Washington Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan, who earned Pro Bowl honors last season after recording 9.0 combined tackles and one sack.


Miami Dolphins DT Leonard Floyd, who appeared in all 32 games in 2017 and recorded six sacks.


Buffalo Titans DE Adolphus Washington, who did not appear in the Pro Bowler voting in 2018 because of an injury.


New Philadelphia Eagles DE Jabaaler Sheard (5’11”, 218 lbs.), who has a great nose for the ball and is capable of dropping into coverage.


Dallas Rams DT Aaron Colvin, who missed most of the season after tearing his ACL last season but played in seven games in the playoffs.


Atlanta Falcons DE Aaron Donald (5-11, 190 lbs.), one of five defensive tackles to record at least 1.5 TFLs last season (one of the three who had at least two).


Oakland Jaguars DE Khalil Mack (5′-9″, 255 lbs.), a versatile pass rusher who played the defensive end position for the Raiders in 2018-19 and has also appeared in 13
