The 2013 NFL draft is full of elite defensive prospects who can make an immediate impact. With players such as Bjoern Werner, Damontre Moore, Jarvis Jones and Dee Milliner all expected to be taken early in the first round, this draft will be dominated by the defensive side of the ball.
But while those guys are considered the cream of the crop, they don't always pan out at the next level. And even more, it is often the guys who very few people are talking about that end up being the better players in the league. More and more frequently, players who didn't receive any draft hype end up carving out the most successful careers.
This year should be no different, as there are plenty of diamonds in the rough if you dig deep enough.
With the draft in April taking place before you know it, here are some of the defensive players who will be a steal for some lucky NFL team.
