The Nation's Best Defensive Line?

While it's impossible to say exactly which team has the best defensive line in the country, the Douglass Astros could certainly throw their hat in the ring.

Roderick Battle is a versatile lineman at 6-4 and 240 pounds that can play inside or outside for Douglass. In their first game against Washington, Battle played mostly defensive end. Against Mays on Saturday night, he played a lot of defensive tackle. He was dominant at both positions.

Brandon Sesay is relatively new to the game of football, but taking a look at him, one can't help but see "NFL" written all over him. He has the strength to play inside and the quickness to play outside. He played exclusively at end (on defense) in Douglass' first two games, and he was able to take on double teams, split the guard and tackle, contain running backs, and sack quarterbacks. He has size (6-7/250), and he plays strong.

#56 Derrius Dowell is no slouch either at 6-3 and 250 pounds, but TheInsiders' video focus today is on Battle and Sesay. See for yourself what has offensive linemen in the state of Georgia a little on the apprehensive side.
