The 2013 NFL draft is just a few months away, and as a guy that simply can't get enough defense, I am excited by the plethora of defensive studs that are available in this year's draft class.
This article will focus on 20 of these players that project to make a big impact on the defensive side of the ball in the NFL.
I want studs, playmakers and space hogs.
I want penetration along the defensive line and gap integrity. I want violence in controlled space.
In my linebacking corps, I want leadership, speed and downhill anger harnessed through helmets and shoulder pads.
In my defensive backfield, I want ball hawks, corners that have pick-six written all over them and safeties who glue the whole operation together.
To make this list, you have to exhibit excellence. There are only 20 spots, and defense wins championships, so read on to see who made the cut.
