|Fairley’s stock has escalated as rapidly as anyone could have imagined, and the talented defensive lineman may just find himself at number one. Fairley paced Auburn with 12 sacks and helped lead them to a national championship. Few players his size are as explosive, and he has been clocked at just over 4.8 in the 40-yard dash. His ability to live in the opponents’ backfield with great penetration make him an elite defender. Barring a combine collapse, Fairley will challenge the top spot in the draft.
