We've begun our early top 10 lists recently, as last week we ranked the top 10 quarterbacks, receivers and running backs for the 2014 class. It's early in our rankings, so I caution that these lists will be subject to heavy change as this new cycle moves on.
Today we're going to move to the defensive side of the ball and check out how the defensive trenches look this year. I've identified 10 DL prospects who appear to be on their to way to being among the nation's best. Several of these DL prospects could contend to not only be among the top defensive recruits in the country, but also be involved in the top overall prospects conversation.
Looking at this class on the surface, it appears that it's a strong year for DLs, especially at the top of the board. Yet, you can see for yourself as here are the top 10 DL prospects early in 2014 recruiting.
