Ranking the top 5 DL prospects for the NFL Draft

The defensive line is one of the most important pieces when it comes to football. If you don’t have a strong defensive line that can stop the run and put pressure on the quarterback, you will never be successful in the NFL.

You always want to have big guys on the inside that can plug up holes, while having elite pass rushers on the outside to put a little added pressure for the quarterback to possibly make some big mistakes. The NFL Draft is not too far away and we have already seen some pretty terrific defensive linemen make a case to be drafted highly in the first round.
