2013 NFL Draft defensive tackle rankings

USA TODAY Sports

One final update to the defensive tackle board.

If the talent at the 2013 NFL Draft is lacking, that certainly doesn't apply to the defensive tackle position. Three players, Star Lotulelei, Sheldon Richardson and Sharrif Floyd, could all be off the board in the first 15 picks, with each one battling it out to be drafted in the top five.

The talent runs deep at the position as well Johnathan Hankins is the next defensive tackle on our board, but Jesse Williams, Sylvester Williams, John Jenkins and Kawann Short are all jockeying for position in the top 40-50 picks of the draft.

A few gems could be found late in this class as well. Florida's Omar Hunter has a chance to be a starting caliber nose tackle in the NFL, while Tennessee-Martin's Montori Hughes needs only to get his head on straight to become a serious value on day three of the draft.
