We're ranking the draft prospects by position this year, and we're doing it via polls. Today we're looking at the top 5 defensive tackles: who would you list at the top of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' draft board, and who would you drop? You can rank the top 5 here -- we'll do 6-10 later, and maybe 11-15 even later.
The ultimate goal here is to get a serviceable list of prospects for the Bucs -- not just just for any NFL team, so keep that in mind. This has a bit of an effect here: the Bucs do not want huge, space-eating defensive tackles. They want quickness and pass-rush ability. That means a player like Louis Nix III is unlikely to appeal to them, while they'd place a premium on someone like Aaron Donald.
Big thanks to Dawgs By Nature for putting this thing together.
So, vote and let us know how Bucs Nation thinks about the top defensive tackle prospects in the NFL. It'll be really interesting to see how the wisdom of crowds does compared to the Buccaneers themselves.
Here are the results for yesterday's edge players poll.
