Before we look at Part 2 on the defense, I would like to thank those who read and commented on Part 1 of this article. Even if I didn't get more than 3,000 reads, I wanted this article to be recognized for the hard work I put in. I sound like I'm giving a speech at a awards show, lol, but seriously I wanna say thank you for making it a success.

For Part 2 of this article, I'm gonna be honest. Other than the top three, this had to be the toughest selection to put together based on the talent on defense. These guys have the potential to become starters. There's gonna be something different with this article but I think it was good idea to add these guys in my top 10. Let me stop talking and get to the top 10 but first let's look at guys who didn't make it but will make an impact this season.
