The NFL is doing everything in its power to reduce the number and the severity of big hits, but do not discount the value of a big hitter on defense. While the ability to "lay the wood" won't make or break a prospect's draft stock, some teams will certainly be looking to inject a little attitude into their defense through the 2013 NFL draft.
Sometimes, players will give up the chance to make the sure play to instead attempt a devastating hit. While those hits can sometimes change the tone of a game, they can also lead to missed opportunities.
Some of these prospects are elite; others couldn't be further from that assessment. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, all these prospects are a highlight reel waiting to happen.
