Top Ten Defensive Ends in the 2013 NFL Draft
Over the past two seasons teams have found top defensive ends in the Draft.
In 2011, the Houston Texans drafted J.J. Watt, and has not been disappointed with his play. In 2012 Watt had 81 tackles, four forced fumbles and 20.5 sacks. His play over the season has earned him AFC Defensive Player of the Year, and a trip to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl.
In 2012, the Seattle Seahawks added Bruce Irvin to their revamped defense. He had eight sacks in his debut season, and helped the surprising Seahawks get all the way to the Divisional round of the NFC playoffs before eventually losing a heart-breaker to the Falcons, 30-28, with only seconds left on the clock.
With Irvin and Watt playing up to the expectations of the teams that drafted them, here are the top 10 defensive ends in the 2013 Draft that are ready to make an instant impact.
