As we continue to dig into our wealth of data we have collected over the past season, we get to look at the Interior Defensive lineman.

The interior line play we get to highlight will be the best from this years college players, we will look at every game and then break it down to only look at those games against the power five conference teams. We will see who was the top in terms of run stop percentage and Pass Rushing Productivity. There will be some expected big names but also see some smaller school guys who failed to get much recognition for their good work.

Run Stop Percentage

We define a “stop” as any instance where the primary tackler prevents an offensive success this changes based on down and distance. To be more accurate here our official cutoffs for each down.
1st down: <40% of required yardage
2nd down: <60% of required yardage
3rd down: <100% of required yardage
4th down: <100% of required yardage

Re: Interior Defenders

Carl Davis, Iowa...

He'd be able to play defensive end or nose tackle...

The guy is practically immovable even under under double-teams...

And he's got some effectiveness in the pass rush...

He's an ideal 3-4 defensive lineman...

Re: Interior Defenders

We need a dominant NT for our triangle in the 3/4.

Re: Interior Defenders

If we wound up picking Shelton at 13 and Carl Davis at 31, our D-Line would be set for years. That being said, if Sherff is there at 13 he's got to be the pick IMHO.
