2011 NFL Draft Defensive Tackles Rankings: Kadar vs Dove

Pro days workouts are over, so it's time to finalize positional rankings. One of the most intriguing thing about the NFL Draft process is that each person values prospects differently. For NFL talent evaluators and draft analysts alike, the rankings at the top look similar, but opinions vary on mid-level players.

Here at Mocking the Draft we wanted to show you how our opinions differ.  Dan Kadar and Jon Dove are breaking down each position giving you their top 10 in each. Make sure to check out our scouting report page to get full reports on some of the prospects.  Also don't hesitate to leave some feedback about our rankings or maybe even your own.

The defensive tackle class is very deep with some top end talent.  We could very well see as many as 10 defensive tackles selected in the first two rounds of the draft.  Dan and I both agree with our top two but after that our rankings vary.  Our lists has a lot of the same names just ranked in different positions.  I really like Corey Liuget and feel that he has the potential to develop into a very good NFL player.  Dan is high on Stephen Paea while I rate him several spots lower.  Check out the rankings after the Jump.
