Here is the list of the top defensive ends using a similar stat model as I used for safeties and corners. There are two types of DEs, smaller DE's that could fit in a 4-3 or as a 3-4 OLB and bigger ones that might be able to fit in as a 5 technique in a 3-4. I just put them all in one list because that's how GBN Draft Report had them. (Note: I added William Gholston in the top 10 evaluation list because I knew he was productive on a very good defense. He was typically ranked around the #15 spot because of his measurables.)

Overall Ranking:

1. Damontre Moore, Texas A&M 2.19
2. Ziggy Anash, BYU 2.17
3. Bjoern Werner, Florida St 2.12
4. Margus Hunt, SMU 1.87 (5T)

Passive Stats Ranking (15% weighting)

Team Data Used: (75% Passing/ 25% Rushing)

I used this weighting because ends have a larger responsibility putting pressure on the QB than interior lineman.

0 - 1.5pts TDs passing allowed (4 - 38 TDs)
0 - 1.5pts Yds/Att (5.0- 9.3 yds/att)
0 - .5pt TDs allowed rushing (5 -37 TDs)
0 - .5pt Yds/Rush Att (2.43 - 6.7 yds/rush att)

1. Bjoern Werner, Florida St 3.48
2. Tank Carradine, Florida St 3.48 (5T)
3. William Gholston, Michigan St 3.47 (5T)
4. Ziggy Anash, BYU 3.19
5. Sam Montgomery, LSU 2.99
6. Damontre Moore, Texas A&M 2.46
7. Margus Hunt, SMU 2.09 (5T)
8. Malliciah Goodman, Clemson 1.96 (5T)
9. Corey Lemonier, Auburn 1.82
10. Alex Okafor, Texas 1.81
11. Datone Jones, UCLA 1.73 (5T)
12. Michael Buchanan, Illinois, 1.54

Measurables (25% weighting)

I used two point systems, one for larger 5T prospects and the other for smaller 3-4 OLB/standard 4-3 DEs
Resource:http://www.draftmetrics.com/files/The%20Combine%20ChroniclesDE.pdf

Data used for smaller DEs:

Height: 0 - .5pts (72.5- 78.5 in)
Weight 0 -.5pts (238 - 278 lbs)
20yd shuttle 0 - .75pt (4.03 - 4.59 secs)
Vertical 0-.75pt (29.5 - 42 in)
40yd 0 - .5pt (4.43 - 5.00 secs)
3-cone drill 0 -.5pt (6.69 -7.85 secs)
Broad jump 0 - .5pt (105 - 132 in)
Data used for larger DEs:

Height: 0 - .5pts (74 - 80 in)
Weight 0 -.5pts (260 - 300 lbs)
40yd 0 - 1pt (4.56 - 5.12 secs)
225lb Bench 0 -.75pt (15 -36 times)
