As we head toward the playoffs, some JUCO defensive linemen are really showing what they can do. JCFootball.com takes a look at just a few of them in today's look at the top prospects in the country at each position...

Butler DE Demarcus Lawrence - Lawrence has been a dominating force for the Grizzlies this fall and last week he posted 10 tackles (8 solo), three tackles-for-loss and a sack in Butler's 28-10 win over Hutchinson. This season the sophomore has posted 60 tackles (43 solo), 15 tackles-for-loss and 11 sacks and is getting attention from schools across the country.


Garden City DE Chaz Nelson - The sophomore defensive end has been a terror off the edge for the Broncbusters this fall, posting 85 tackles (61 solo) to go along with 15.5 tackles-for-loss and 9.5 sacks this year.


Erie DE Malik Thompson - Thompson has posted 29 tackles, three tackles-for-loss and one sack this year for Erie.


Nassau DE Billy Dobbs - The freshman has been a real find for the Lions this season, posting 25 tackles, 11 tackles-for-loss and five sacks.


Dean DE Albert Presly - Presly flies off the edge with his quick first step and has been solid this season posting 24 tackles, nine tackles for loss and two sacks for the 6-1 Bulldogs who just wrapped up the Northeast Football Conference title. Presly also received an offer from Akron, his first, this past week.


Trinity Valley DE Martez Shabazz - Shabazz was a key to TVCC's 38-14 win over Cisco last week posting five tackles and forcing a fumble for the Cardinals. This season the talented sophomore has posted 35 tackles, eight tackles-for-loss and two sacks on the season.


Blinn DT Logan David - One of the top JUCO defensive tackles in the country, David has done nothing to diminish his stock by posting 29 tackles and one sack from his nose tackle position.


Georgia Military DT Daniel McCullers - McCullers has really been troublesome for opponents this season totaling 27 tackles, 12 tackles-for-loss and two sacks from his interior spot.


Scottsdale DT Mike Pennel - Pennel uses his outstanding size and strength to hold strong at the point-of-attack and has put up solid numbers for an interior defensive lineman, posting 31 tackles, 10 tackles-for-loss and two sacks this season.


West Los Angeles DT Kevin Laudermill - Laudermill is athletic and strong and has used both traits to post 30 tackles, three tackles-for-loss and two sacks so far this season.


Pasadena DL Pone Faleofa - Faleofa has the size, strength and athleticism to play almost anywhere along the defensive line, but he's likely a strongside defensive end at the next level and has proven his worth this season by leading PCC in sacks with seven while also posting 33 tackles and 7.5 tackles for loss and an interception as well.


Riverside DT Daniel Fusi - As a freshman, Fusi has really clogged the middle while working into the Tigers' defensive line rotation, racking up 11 tackles, 2.5 tackles-for-loss and a sack so far this season.


Palomar DE/LB David Moodie - Moodie has been solid this season for the Comets, posting 36 tackles, four tackles-for-loss and three sacks from his stand-up, pass-rushing position.


L.A. Pierce DE Devon McKinney - McKinney is a rangy guy with long arms and he's used his quick first step and good strength to rack up 15 tackles, six tackles-for-loss and 3.5 sacks so for this season for the Brahmas.


Chabot DE Kamu Taulelei - Taulelei has been a force for the Gladiators this season, posting 23 tackles, three tackles-for-loss and 2.5 sacks so far this season for a team that is now 6-1


Modesto DE Beau Bachtelle - At 6'5", 250 pounds, Bachtelle is an impressive looking athlete and he leads the Pirates in tackles (36), tackles-for-loss (7.5) and sacks (3.5).


Foothill DE Tyree Barton - Barton has had a solid freshman season so far this fall, posting 38 tackles, 8.5 tackles-for-loss and 4.5 sacks.


Los Medanos DT Adias Lane - Lane uses his low center-of-gravity to hold strong against the run, allowing others to make plays, but has still put up respectable numbers racking up 15 tackles and 1.5 tackles-for-loss.


Mendocino DE Aeon Blake - Blake is outstandingly quick and has used that to his advantage this season, posting 27 tackles, 13 tackles-for-loss and eight sacks for Mendocino.
