Who Is PFF’s Top-Rated 2015 First Round Pick?

You can see for yourself.

23. Denver Broncos: Shane Ray, DE (PFF Grade: +6.2)

Ray has been a force throughout preseason, and is a little unlucky that second-year teammate Shaquil Barrett is stealing his thunder and doing even better. Ray has a sack in each of his last two games and has graded positively against both the run and pass in each preseason outing. He will have to fight for playing time during the season, but could have a real impact as a situational option.

The only point I take exception to is that Ray is a “little unlucky” about Barrett. If anything, it’s every Broncos opponent who is a “little unlucky” to have to contend with multiple pass-rushing threats from a deep Broncos defensive unit.
