The 2012 college football season will feature a plethora of dominant defenders who will wreak havoc on opposing offenses.
In 2009, it was Ndamukong Suh, then with Nebraska, who was such a dominant defender that he was among the Heisman finalists that year.
Then continuing the defensive dominance was Tyrann "Honey Badger" Mathieu for LSU in 2011, as he also found himself among Heisman finalists.
Mathieu should have another dominant season with LSU in 2012, but he will have to move aside as we welcome a new crop of college football defenders who will be more dominant and have first-round 2013 NFL draft talent.
As a result, who will be the most dominant college football defenders in 2012?
