Who is the best defensive end in the 2014 NFL draft? Which cornerback does your team need to target in the first round? It may seem like the NFL draft is a lifetime away, but the reality is the college football season is in full swing, and so that means the time is now to study and break down the top prospects.
This time we take a look specifically at some of the top defensive prospects who may be in the upcoming draft. Obviously, when you are talking about underclassmen, some of these players may opt to return to school, but for now, these are the best of the best.
For this breakdown, we look at the top five players at each position, as well as giving you five guys to watch for the rest of the year. To clarify, these are not prospects 6-10. Some of these players might be in the top 10, and others aren't quite there yet.
