Terrance Knighton

“DT”, Denver Broncos

The giant defensive tackle known as “Pot Roast” showed the NFL world what he could do for the Denver Broncos in 2013. His presence in the middle made it almost impossible to run not just to his heavy load but also his quickness, which allowed him to impact in the pass rush from time to time.

Kyle Williams

“DT”, Buffalo Bills

Marcel Dareus may be more talented and grab more headlines, but Kyle Williams grades out as the better defensive tackle for the Buffalo Bills. His interior pass rush is evident by 10.5 sacks last season and he also throws his body around to stop the run, making 68 tackles.

Haloti Ngata

“DT”, Baltimore Ravens

He wasn’t the force last year he’s been for season after season in Baltimore but Haloti Ngata is still the lynch pin to the entire Ravens defense. His power helps them against the run and typically he has no problem collapsing the pocket.

Dontari Poe

“DT”, Kansas City Chiefs

After a quiet rookie season, Dontari Poe came into his own with the Kansas City Chiefs, not only fulfilling his role as a 3-4 nose tackle but generating sacks with the same athleticism that launched him to the top of the draft in 2012.
