Dontay Moch sticks out among defensive linemen workouts

Ryan Colburn, Dontay Moch,

This year’s defensive line class is generally viewed as one of the best and deepest defensive line classes in recent memory.  On Monday morning, the big fellas showed how well they can run in a straight line.

Nevada’s Dontay Moch turned in a ridiculous performance, with an unofficial 4.45 forty and 42-inch vertical leap.  Moch will likely be an outside linebacker as a pro, but those are crazy numbers for a 248-pound kid.

UNC’s Robert Quinn ran a 4.73 unofficially, with a 1.66 split.  (UPDATE: He ran a 4.67 on his second try.) While that’s very impressive, Quinn’s numbers throughout his workout on Monday haven’t quite “blown up the combine” as NFL Network’s Mike Mayock anticipated.

Other notable defensive line prospects impressed and we’ll list some of the interesting times below.  Remember that each time is unofficial, and we’ll include each player’s 10-yard split first.   (That number probably matters more for this position.)

Fresno State’s Chris Carter: 1.62, 4.66.

Cal’s Cam Jordan: 1.69, 4.71.

UNC’s Robert Quinn: 1.66, 4.73.

UNC’s Marvin Austin: 1.63, 4.80.

Iowa’s Adrian Clayborn 1.72, 4.81.

Auburn’s Nick Fairley: 1.72, 4.82.

Alabama’s Marcell Dareus: 1.71, 4.92.

Illinois’  Corey Liuget: 1.75, 4.95.

    Man, now the Eagles need to sign both Nnamde and Clabo because I want Marvin Austin.
