This week, Bleacher Report begins a new series for La Liga fans.
Starting today with defenders, I will look at the top 10 players at each position that you should follow over the course of this season.
This is not necessarily a list of the 10 best players at each position—although that list would be almost identical.
I will list the top 10 central defenders, fullbacks, keepers, midfielders, wide men and central forwards/strikers over the course of the next few weeks.
Some players I left off because their impact this season should be minimal—like Carles Puyol. Others, like Javi Martinez, look to be on their way out of Spain so they were also excluded.
After reading these lists, my hope is that you readers will respond, challenge my list and provide some ideas of who you would have listed instead.
Read on to see the top 10 defenders in La Liga this season.
