Defensive ends are always in high demand, as a team's ability to rush the passer is critical to its success.
The 2014 recruiting class has many solid defensive end prospects, but only a select few appear ready to make an immediate impact. It's not easy to come from high school directly into college to play in the trenches, but the players on this list have a chance.
A few may not be ready to play every down, but they can help on passing downs. Also, several defensive ends could be ready to assist with stopping the run.
