2019 NFL Draft: Ranking defensive position groups, Top five at each position

Greedy Williams should be a top 10 pick, but because of the need at the quarterback position he could slip out the top 10 because teams drafting needs rather than best player available.

The NFL Draft is one month away and it is time we put out our rankings for the top five players at each and every position. We are not your normal website, we put the top five as we view it. So will there be some players rated higher than other websites, yes, and we are not saying the player is not a top tier player but rather he is not the number one player. So let’s get into this draft and rank defensive position rankings per position groups from strongest to weakest.
