Possibly no position is in higher demand come draft day than defensive line.  Ten defensive linemen were selected during the first round of the 2011 draft, one more than the prior year.  Overall this year’s class is not as top heavy as prior draft’s yet there’s plenty of talent and depth, especially at the end spot.  Several of the prospects listed at both positions are interchangeable at a number of spots in 3-4 or 4-3 alignments.
