Nevada OLB Dontay Moch is a gifted straight-line athlete who the Bengals landed with the 66th overall pick. He possesses the speed to rush off the edge, is fluid enough to drop into space and Buffalo fans can look at him as a poor man's Von Miller, who went second overall to Denver.

Kansas City nabbed Georgia DE Justin Houston only three picks later. Houston possesses a great first step, can threaten the corner, but is limited when asked to drop his pad level. He's more of a one-trick pony and needs to develop a counter if he hopes to mature into an upper echelon pass rusher in the NFL.

However, both are solid 3rd round values.
