Nose Tackle prospects for 2013 Draft...My highest rated team need....Source Walter FootBall

1. Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah
Height: 6-4. Weight: 325.
Projected 40 Time: 5.15.
Projected Round (2013): Top-10.

Not a whole lot of chance of him dropping to 15, but if he is there, I would change my much proferred, opinion of trading down.

2. Johnathan Hankins*, DT, Ohio State

Height: 6-4. Weight: 325.
Projected 40 Time: 5.18.
Projected Round (2013): Top-20.

Walterfootball ranks him as the #2 ranked NT, but I would personally switch the 2 pick for their #3.

3. Jonathan Jenkins, DT, Georgia

Height: 6-3. Weight: 359. Arm: 33 1/8. Hand: 9 1/2.
Projected 40 Time: 5.25.
Projected Round (2013): 1.

My reasoning for moving him up to the #2 ranked NT are thus: 1, he has true NT size and weight, and 2, the opponents he faced, namely SEC rivals.

4. Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama

Height: 6-4. Weight: 320.
Projected 40 Time: 5.35.
Projected Round (2013): 2-3.

Now, they have this guy rated as a second/ third round pick. I don't think he makes it out of the first round, and would be one of the guys I would target for a later first round pick if we could find a trading partner. Potentially could underwhelm, but surely not as bad as Ellis.

5. Kwame Geathers*, DT, Georgia

Height: 6-6. Weight: 350.
Projected 40 Time: 5.55.
Projected Round (2013): 3-5.

Now if we wait, for a 3 round NT pick, this guy should definitelyy be in the headlights. True NT weight, and from everything I've seen a would eclipse Ellis's production, IMHO. A beast who would have been Bama's starter, if he hadn't entered this years draft.

The rest of these guys would probably be available in rounds 5-7, and while I woiuld hope to have this need addressed by then, are what would be available, in those rounds.

6.Brandon Williams, DT, Missouri Southern

Height: 6-1. Weight: 341. Arm: 32 3/4. Hand: 9 5/8.
Projected 40 Time: 5.27.
Projected Round (2012): 5-7.

7. Larry Black, Jr., DT, Indiana

Height: 6-2. Weight: 309.
Projected 40 Time: 5.55.
Projected Round (2013): 5-7.

Tooooo light in my opinion.

8. Brandon Moore, DT, Texas

Height: 6-5. Weight: 320.
Projected 40 Time: 5.37.
Projected Round (2012): 6-FA.

and it goes down hill starting here.
