2013 NFL Draft: Top 5 at Each Defensive Position

At NBC, I continued my draft rankings with the top five players at each defensive position.

Yesterday, I posted my top five players at each offensive position. Today, I’ll turn my attention to the defensive side of the ball.


Dion Jordan, Oregon

Ezekiel Ansah, BYU

Cornellius Carradine, Florida State

Barkevious Mingo, LSU

Bjoern Werner, Florida State

Analysis: Jordan and Ansah are the top two overall players on my board. Carradine might be in that spot had he not suffered a knee injury in 2012.


Star Lotulelei, Utah

Sheldon Richardson, Missouri

Sharrif Floyd, Florida

Kawann Short, Purdue

Datone Jones, UCLA

Analysis: Most people have Floyd at the top of their defensive tackle rankings, but I don’t think he has the upside that most others see. The value on a player like Short in the second round could be much better.

Check out the rest of the rankings.
