While Will Sutton may have been the more well-known name on Arizona State's defense, no defender was more important to the Sun Devils than Carl Bradford.

Bradford was able to get to the quarterback a team-high 8.5 times in 2013.

At 6'1", 250 pounds, Bradford doesn't have the desired length of an edge rusher in the NFL; however, what he lacks in size he makes up for with his relentless pursuit of the football.

Bradford played an integral role in helping the Sun Devils win the Pac-12 South and host the Pac-12 Championship—a feat experts didn't project heading into the season.

In a game in which ASU was battling it out with UCLA on the road in a game packed with Pac-12 South implications, Bradford came up huge, returning a Brett Hundley interception for a touchdown to start the second half. The play gave the Sun Devils a 21-10 lead, which they didn't give up for the rest of the game.

Along with Sutton, Bradford has landed with a new team and will be looking to demonstrate that the production he had at the collegiate ranks will translate to the NFL.

Watch B/R's NFL draft analysts as they break down what Bradford will bring to the next level.
