JCFootball.com: Top Defensive Linemen

Every year, schools from across the country are looking for players to fill gaps in the front-four of their defense. This year has seen quite a few defensive line prospects get off to fast starts and today we take a look at just a few of the names to keep an eye on...

Diablo Valley DE Morgan Breslin - The UCLA commitment has been outstanding so far this season, leading the state with four sacks while also contributing 13 tackles with six tackles-for-loss.


Feather River DE Emilious Davis - In two games this season, Davis has been all over the field, posting 28 tackles, 4.5 tackles-for-loss and 1.5 sacks from his defensive end spot. Expect schools to start giving him a longer look as the season moves along.


Cerritos DE Alauna Finau - The Falcons have struggled early this season, getting out to a 1-2 start, however, don't blame that on Finau as he's done everything he can to keep opposing quarterbacks from feeling comfortable. In addition to his 11 tackles, 4.5 tackles-for-loss and 2.5 sacks, Finau has also registered six quarterback hurries. He will be heavily recruited over the coming months.


West LA DT Kevin Laudermill - One of the top interior defensive linemen in the state of California, Laudermill has been outstanding so far this year, posting 15 tackles and a sack.
