Cowboys Draft: Defensive Big Board, Pre Combine

Over the past few weeks I have written articles about various strategies and players the Cowboys can look at in the offseason. Since I am now finished with all of the defensive positions, I thought I would post my pre-combine ranking of the top 75 defensive players. I hope you enjoy.

The list is still being updated as I get more information. For example, the combine results will change it some, but it should at least give you an idea of where I rate the top defensive prospects based on their tape.

So take a look and give me your opinion on which player I have too high or too low. Look forward to hearing from you.

And yes, I may have missed someone, so if I did let me know about them and why you think they are in the top 75 defenders (use the comments below the article).

[table id=34 /]

I do have a few players much higher than many pundits (see Georgia LB/DE Jenkins) and I have a few players much further down than most (See Karl Joseph, safety West Virginia, just do not think he is worth anywhere near a second round grade).

What do you think?
