Ranking the 2012 Draft Prospects by Position – 4-3 Defensive Tackles

Earlier in the day I looked at the Nose Tackle class and now I will look at your more traditional DT, that plays in a 4-3 scheme.

1. Devon Still, Penn State – Still is the best DT prospect in the draft and I already described him in the 3-4 DE post. Look for a Player Profile on him within the next couple weeks.

2. Michael Brockers, LSU – Brockers, along with being the #2 3-4 DE, is also the #2 4-3 DT. As with Still, look for a Player Profile on Brockers within the next few weeks.

3. Brandon Thompson, Clemson – Thompson had a very good season and has a lot of potential at the next level. He is an above average pass rusher and is very strong against the run. He has a late first round to early second round grade.

4. Jerel Worthy, Michigan State – Worthy came into the year with an early first round grade, but after a tough start to the season, he has seen his stock fall to the second round. However, he still has loads of potential and could become a huge steal.

5. Fletcher Cox, Mississippi State – Cox had incredible season this year. He has above average pass rushing skills and is pretty strong against the run. I like his potential as a long term starter but not a pro-bowler.
