Athlon gets the fans ready for the NFL draft with position by position rankings for 2013.
Each year a unique set of prospects enters the professional ranks with a chance to make an immediate impact on the country's most powerful sport.

Fans who squirm at the long wait from Saturday college football to the Thursday night game will get a brief reprieve.

Winning the battle in the trenches is crucial to claiming college football's national championship. The SEC has claimed six consecutive national titles, so it should come as no surprise this conference has some of the top defensive linemen. South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney is in for a monster sophomore season, while LSU's Sam Montgomery will make a run at first-team All-American honors. The SEC is represented in the defensive tackles, as four of the top 10 reside from the conference.
