If a defense finds itself a dominant defensive tackle on the recruiting trail, it can soar to new heights. Big, strong, quick and physical interior defensive linemen can be difference-makers. The 2014 class has a solid group of defensive tackle prospects and they could be great fits at certain schools.
From the gap-penetrating defensive tackle prospects needing to get into a scheme predicated on quickness to the powerful guys who could be good fits in a 3-4 scheme, it is imperative they are a good fit in their future school's defense.
A recruit in Virginia could man the defensive trenches well for one of his in-state schools, while there are talented big men in Michigan, Florida and Georgia who are in search of the right fit.
