247Sports

Having several defenders who can play linebacker and safety is a key asset for defensive coordinators.

Players who can play on top of the defense as a safety, while still being able to come into the box as an extra linebacker are in high demand. College coaches need defensive players to help them stop the spread offense, along with having the toughness to combat running plays.

Player evaluations are based on review of tape at Scout.comRivals247Sports and ESPNU.
