2014 NFL Draft Positional Big Board (Defense)

See also

Two weeks ago, I released my big board for the offensive positions for the 2014 NFL Draft. The pool for the 2014 NFL Draft is extremely deep on the defensive side of the ball, much more so than the offense. If the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks have taught us anything, it is that there are quality players at every position in every round that can be found. The key to success is finding the right players for the right team just like Malcolm Smith, Kam Chancellor and many other stars from the Super Bowl champions.

The draft board is extremely deep in pass rushers and defensive backs, but there is depth everywhere. At least ten players from the front seven could go in the first round along with at least five cornerbacks. The NFL is changing and the importance of secondary players can not be overstated. A breed of larger and more physical players is emerging in the back end and this draft class will show that.

The following is my positional break down on the defensive side of the ball. An overall big board followed by my first mock draft will be coming soon.
