Pass-rushers are always at a premium in the NFL draft, and you have to look no further than the impact Aldon Smith has had in San Francisco to see their value.

Who from the 2013 class could be similarly productive at the next level? Here's a look at five of the top pass-rushers on this year's board, what they bring to the table and where they might find fits in the NFL. Non-seniors are noted with an asterisk.

Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore* (96)
Moore is a versatile pass-rusher in terms of ability and alignment. He can turn the corner against most tackles and closes well, and he doesn't have to win with straight speed to be effective. Moore (6-foot-4, 248 pounds) can also set up offensive tackles to the outside and use his quick-twitch lateral mobility to redirect inside.
