Now, it's the defense's turn.

Again, these are players flying under the radar. Enough attention and hype has been given and will continue to be given to prospects such as Patrick Peterson, Marcell Dareus, Nick Fairley, Robert Quinn, and Von Miller.

This list is about guys who might come from a small school, or perhaps don't run or physically test well, or are coming off an injury, or don't necessarily fit into a particular scheme or position.
Whatever the reason, these are players that you might not know now but will make you look good for knowing them on draft weekend.
More importantly, these players might just make your team play better whenever the NFL plays football again.
