YOOOAdrian’s 2010 NFL Preview- DT Rankings

  • The space eaters on the inside of the defensive line are next to be profiled.  Here’s what I look at in a defensive tackle.
  • Strength- Being able to maintain position in running lanes, neutralize blocks and hold ground, leverage, and splitting the double team.
  • Quickness- Having quick feet is essential for slanting and twisting to shoot the gaps and create penetration.  Reaction and hands are vital to flatten down the line of scrimmage.
  • Toughness- Especially for a 3-4 NT who gets double teamed and beat up all game, you have to be able to get up.  Must play with that mean streak.
