Big Ten Football: Northwestern's Vince Browne Tops This Year's Defensive Ends

It's Brown with an "e" at the end and Northwestern's Vince Browne is an awesome defensive end. He specializes in sacking opponents for a loss.

The Wildcat senior has registered 31 tackles for a loss and 16 sacks in his college career.  He was a second-team All-Big Ten selection at defensive end last year and should be a first-team selection this year.

While Ohio State's football program has taken it on the chin (and in the gut) this year, their defense features the No. 2 and No. 4 defensive ends in our Big Ten list. The rest of the top 10 selections come from seven different Big Ten schools.

Illinois, Minnesota and Penn State failed to place a defensive end on the list, though also considered in the rankings were the Fighting Illini's Michael Buchanan and Penn State's Jack Crawford.
