The 2015 recruiting class is full of outstanding defensive recruits. However, some are not ranked as high as they deserve to be.
Looking at the 247Sports composite rankings, several defenders can be deemed "underrated."
These prospects show better skill sets on tape than their ranking would indicate. Instincts, quickness, tackling ability, speed and awareness are all key traits for a defensive player.
Alabama has a 3-star pass-rusher who should be commanding more attention, while a ball-hawking safety is underrated mainly due to suffering an injury as a junior. Plus, a pair of 4-star cornerbacks actually deserve more praise than they are receiving right now.
All recruiting ratings and rankings are from 247Sports' composite rankings.
