Cream of the 2013 NFL draft crop: Defensive linemen

BY DAN BEGNOCHE

This is the seventh edition of an eight-part series noting the top prospects of the 2013 NFL Draft at their respective positions.

THE DEFENSIVE LINE PROSPECTS: Bjoern Werner, Star Lotulelei, Damontre Moore (photo: Jeffrey Willey, Flickr), Sharrif Floyd, Kawann Short, Alex Okafor.

Bjoern Werner (DE) (6-4, 256 lbs.), Florida State
Sack machine in last two seasons and also added 18 passes defensed. Mix of strength and speed is deadly on the edge. Plays better at a lower weight but will probably have to gain few to go against NFL’s elite lineman. Easily a top-ten pick.

Star Lotulelei (DT) (6-3, 320 lbs.), Utah
Absolute force in the middle of the line and saw lots of double- and triple-team coverage. Stout run stopper and quick enough to make waves in the backfield. Bit older than most and can play at a bit heavy at times. An instant improvement to any run defense and will definitely go top 20.
