Notre Dame Football: Projecting the Irish's 2013 Defensive Depth Chart

Notre Dame's improbable run to the BCS National Championship Game was spurred by its ferocious defense, which head coach Brian Kelly has built to be a fortress for seasons to come. 

Per the current depth chart, the Irish defense will have eight returning starters next season, with the only losses being defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore, linebacker Manti Te'o and free safety Zeke Motta. 

While the leadership and tremendous play provided by Lewis-Moore, Te'o and Motta will be missed, Irish fans needn't be worried, for the coaching staff has been hard at work on the recruiting trail during the past three seasons coalescing a core of elite defensive talent.

How will that core stack up in 2013?

Let's have a look.

Enjoy.
