    Defensive Tackle: (DE denotes the player could also draw interest as a 5-technique with teams that employ an odd front, or already play the DE position in an odd front in college)

    Star Lotulelei / Utah

    Sylvester Williams / North Carolina

    Joe Vellano / Maryland

    Kawann Short / Purdue

    Margus Hunt / SMU (DE)

    Tier 2 (Top 75-125 Grade)

    Brandon Williams / Missouri Southern

    John Jenkins / Georgia

    Jake McDonough / Iowa St. (DE)

    Jesse Williams / Alabama

    Jordan Hill / Penn St.

    Tier 3 (Top 150-200 Grade)

    Scott Vallone / Rutgers

    Baker Steinkuhler / Nebraska (DE)

    Quinton Dial / Alabama (DE)

    Larry Black / Indiana

    Cory Grissom / South Florida

    Tier 4 (Top 225-250 Grade)

    Jamarkus McFarland / Oklahoma

    Anthony Rashad-White / Michigan St.

    Josh Mauro / Stanford (DE)

    Everette Dawkins / Florida St.

    Josh Boyd / Mississippi St.


    Joe Vellano also plays DE in an odd front for Maryland, but it won't be his best position in the NFL. He's a better fit for a pure 3-technique, as he doesn't have the ideal length that you're looking for in a 5-tech.

    Jake McDonough is the one of the most underrated defensive players in the country at nose tackle for Iowa St. All he does is soak up double-teams at the point of attack and stand his ground. However, I think his build at 6'5", 280 pounds is ideal for the 5-technique if he tests well enough athletically. He's already adept at 2-gapping.

    Purdue will often use Kawann Short lined up at DE although he doesn't have the same impact there. He's better disrupting the B-gap attacking the outside shoulder of the guard as a traditional 3-technique.
