2016 Daily Norseman Big Board: Defense Continues To Rule

New, comments
Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

We've filled five more spots on our 2016 Daily Norseman Big Board, and much like we have in many instances throughout this process, we are adding more defensive players than offensive ones.

An offensive player did top the board this time around, however, as Indiana offensive tackle Jason Spriggs garnered the most votes of any player in the pool this time around. That puts him at #31 on our list. Behind him was a second defensive tackle from the University of Alabama, as Jarran Reed has grabbed the #32 spot. He joins his teammate, A'Shawn Robinson, who is already on our board at #23.

Likewise, we have a second defensive end from Clemson to add to the list, as Kevin Dodd makes our list at #33. His teammate, Shaq Lawson, is on our list at #14. It was a close race for our fourth spot on this list between Alabama center Ryan Kelly and Southern Cal linebacker/safety Su'a Cravens, but when the smoke cleared Kelly got the higher spot by just one point over Cravens.

Here's how the voting panned out this time around:

DN Big Board Spots 31-35

We'll be back with the next round of voting for our Big Board, which will round out the Top 40, at approximately noon Central time.
