The work never seems to end in theplayer evaluation world, which means front offices have already turned their attention toward the upcomingseason in advance of the 2024. With that in mind, let's continue our CBS Sports summer prospect series.We've covered the offensive side of the ball with,,,, and. Now we enter our second installment on the defensive side of the ball after kicking it off with : defensive tackles.OVERALL PICKDRAFT TEAMPLAYER9 (Georgia)19 (Pittsburgh)26 (Michigan)29 (Clemson)Four players at the position were selected in the first round of the 2023, tied for the second-most first-round picks for any position last April along with the cornerbacks. Yet the upcoming crop of defensive tackles as a collective could have a higher ceiling and more depth." The 2024 cla s will definitely be deeper and more athletic at defensive tackle than the 2023 cla s ," former longtimegeneral manager Rick Spielman said Aug. 4 on an episode of the "" podcast.Here's an in-depth look at the current top defensive tackles with some pro comparisons from Spielman and CBS Sportsanalyst Ryan Wilson, plus some names who could rise through the ranks in the season to come. The defensive tackles are ranked by their readine s for theentering the 2023season.Height:6-foot-4 |Weight:290 poundsAccolades/notable statistics:2022 Honorable Mention All-ACC; career-high sacks (4.0) in 2022; tied career high in tackles for lo s (8.0) in 2022Rick Spielman's comp: ()"This kid played all up and down the defensive line, but I think he's best inside at three-technique. He's still learning how to play the game. You can see all the traits that you're looking for, but he's only played football since his junior year of high school I believe. So, he has a lot of growing to do as a football player. He'll get better and better the more reps he gets."Ryan Wilson's comp: ()"I think he's the most developmental prospect in this group , but I think the upside he has to offer."Games to circle:vs. Notre Dame (Nov. 4), vs. North Carolina (Nov. 18) Josh Tomlin Jersey Draft range:Second or third roundFinal thoughtsEven though Ruke Orhorhoro doesn't currently come with a wide-ranging repertoire of moves, but he's a ferocious athlete with a high-motor. Those two will traits will get any player most of the way there, especially up front where there's only so many options of moves to choose from given how close contact the space is on the line of scrimmage. Orhorhoro is equally skilled when playing the run or the pa s. He could be somebody who has an incredibly better profe sional career in Orlando Cepeda Jersey comparison to his collegiate career. Every year Clemson has new elite defensive linemen ready to take over. This year it'll be Ruke Orhorhoro if he develops this offseason. Incredible burst and frame for an interior DT Joe DeLeone (@joedeleone) Height:6-foot-6 |Weight:315 poundsAccolades/notable statistics:2021 Freshman All-SEC; injured tore his ACL in first quarter of 2022 season-opener versus Florida State (mi sed rest of season)Rick Spielman's comp: ()"Maason Smith to me is a unique size guy that has excellent athleticism and twitch. He could stand to improve his technique. I had to go back to 2021 to watch him because of the knee injury, but I really like his upside. This guy can bend and dip. He plays with leverage. He's very flexible through his lower body. He showed a lot of flashes in 2021, but he needs to be more consistent. He also has to show he's going to be durable. If he can play all the games this year, he will be considered for the first round. He has first-round traits written all over him."Ryan Wilson's comp: ()"Some of the concerns I had about his strength could be old concerns since a lot of time has pa sed between 2021 and now. I love the athleticism.Games to circle: vs.. Florida State (Sep. 3), at Alabama (Nov. 4)Draft range:First or second roundFinal thoughtsThe primary reason Maason Smith isn't higher is because of durability concerns after tearing his ACL in LSU's first game of the season in 2022. If he can remain in the lineup all season, there's a lot to love about Smith. He has an incredible length and size, making it po sible for him to make plays even if it looks like offensive linemen have him well within their grasp. Smith's pa s-rush technique is strong and he has a tremendous bag of pa s-rush tricks to pull from to bamboozle opposing linemen. If he stays Greg Maddux Jersey healthy, Smith could be one of the nation's biggest risers from now until next April.Height:6-foot-2 |Weight:295 poundsAccolades/notable statistics: 2022 second-team All-American; 2022 first-team All-Big Ten; led the nation's FBS top-ranked scoring defense (12.8 PPG allowed) in TFLs (14.0), sacks (5.5), quarterback pre sures (59, T-7th-most in FBS) and fumble recoveries (two)Rick Spielman's comp: (former Viking)"I think he's strong against the point of attack when playing the run. He does drop his weight and anchor. I thought he wasn't as quick-twitched as an inline pa s rusher. I think he relies on power and then a counter move. I don't know if he can be as fine se and athletic utilizing those fine se type of moves, but he can definitely rush the pa ser. It's just a different style. I thought this guy had upside as an inline rusher, and with another strong year, will be a first-round pick."Ryan Wilson's comp: (former Bengal)"He was consistently quick off the ball, consistently active hands, very similar to what you saw in , but I think Newton is a little more polished and a little more consistent when making plays. He was consistently stout at the point of attack. I thought he held up against double teams really well.Games to circle:vs. Penn State (Sep. 16), vs. Wisconsin (Oct. 21)Draft range:Late first or early second roundFinal thoughtsJer'Zhan Newton is the most productive defensive tackle returning to in the entire country. He led all Power 5 interior defensive linemen in quarterback pre sures (59) and tackles for lo s (14.0). Newton doesn't have the same eye-popping explosion as some of the others on this list, but he's fundamentally sound, strong, and downright mean in the run game. Newton easily projects as a Day 1 starter, entering the pros with an incredibly high floor. I'm obse sed with the power and flexibility Illinois DT Jer'Zhan Newton brings to the field Joe DeLeone (@joedeleone) Height:6-foot-3 |Weight: 305 poundsAccolades/notable statistics:2022 Honorable Mention All-ACC; co-led team in tackles for lo s (10.5) in 2022Rick Spielman's comp: Calijah Kancey (Buccaneers)"I think he has a unique combination of strength and athleticism. I think this guy has first-rounder written all over him because you can't find guys his size who move like that. He's bigger on tape to me than Michael Hall, but he has that same type of athleticism. I saw similar athletic traits between him and Kancey. I think Taylor is better than Kancey against the run. Taylor's pad level can get a little high, but Taylor is a little better against the run thank Kancey." Ryan Wilson's comp: (49ers)"Leonard Taylor is twitched up. He was consistently quick off the snap. He gave interior linemen all sorts of fits, whether it was the A or B gap. Active hands made it difficult for the interior offensive linemen to lock on to him because his hands are so active and strong. I thought he freelanced a little too much in Terry Pendleton Jersey an effort to make big plays, but that's an easy coaching fix when you have that athleticism and energy on every snap."Games to circle: at North Carolina (Oct. 14),vs. Clemson (Oct. 21), at Florida State (Nov. 11)Draft range:First round (Rick Spielman), early second round (Ryan Wilson)Final thoughtsLeonard Taylor III was one of the most efficient pa s-rushing defensive tackles in the nation in 2022. His 16.2% quarterback pre sure rate ranked inside the top 20 of the FBS in a lower number of snaps (321). If his technique can improve in terms of maintaining his leverage and staying to the ground when rushing the pa ser, he could potentially be the first defensive tackle drafted in 2024. Miami DT Leonard Taylor is already one of my favorite players for the 2024 NFL Draft. Lightning-quick first step, power to move the line of scrimmage, and he can finish. Steve Palazzolo (@PFF_Steve) Height:6-foot-2 |Weight:280 poundsAccolades/notable statistics:Co-led team in sacks (4.5) in 2022 despite only 141 pa s-rush snapsRick Spielman's comp: (Cowboys)/ ()"There's no question about the athletic skillset. For a little bit of an undersized guy, he does play with surprising strength. Where he struggles a little bit is when he has to take on double teams and combo blocks at the point of attack, but this guy has good range. He's a wrap-up tackler. Quick first step off the snap. Best at using his strengths and athletic tools as an Blank Jersey in-line rusher. I think he can increase to double-digit sacks this year with more opportunities. I really like this player. He was tremendous upside, and I think he's going to make a big jump this year." Ryan Wilson's comp: (Cowboys)"He just turned 20. I liked a lot of what he did. He's a high motor player. Incredibly strong given his size. I thought he did a lot of good things. His succe s rate against Michigan State last year was around 85% given his productivity and low number of snaps. I like him athletically. I think Hall has a chance to be better than Odighizuwa; he has better athletic traits."Games to circle:at Notre Dame (Sep. 23),vs. Penn State (Oct. 21), at Michigan (Nov. 25)Draft range:First round (Rick Spielman), late third round or early fourth round (Ryan Wilson)Final thoughtsMichael Hall is the projection pick of this cla s. He's only 20 years old and only played 257 defensive snaps last season. Yet, he was disruptive, totaling 7.5 tackles for lo s in the limited opportunities. Hall is astute at utilizing leverage, getting lower than offensive linemen before powering forward and popping up just in time to fluster opposing quarterbacks. Given his age, he could easily pack on some power to his game and evolve into a much more productive player in 2023 when provided with a higher workload. Posting one Ohio State highlight every day until Ohio State football is back.Reminder: Michael Hall Jr. Is going to be a PROBLEM for opposing offensive lines JRs Rankings (@jrs_rankings)
