TOP 2023 DE RECRUITS
Top 2023 DE recruits on our top 2023 D-Line recruit rankings, are one of the best classes of edge rushers I have seen at this stage of their young football careers. Top 2023 DE recruit Peter Woods out of Thompson high school in Alabama started 13 games on Varsity this past season, while being able to tally 54 tackles (15 TFL) and 7 sacks on the 2019 season. Woods currently holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi St, UAB, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Indiana and Tennessee, while running a sub 5.0, 40 yard dash at 6'4, 250 LBS. Peter holds the edge extremely well as a power side defensive end and is able to use his high motor, as well as his 5 star athletics to track ball carriers down. But what impressed me the most was his pass rushing capabilities off the edge, as he is explosive off the snap of the football and has phenomenal hands when utilizing his power & finesse rips, swims and bull rushes. He maintains outstanding leverage with his great technique and is one of the best I have seen at dealing with the hogs up front, as he simply is a well-oiled machine coming off the edge in the 2023 recruiting class.

2023 TOP D-LINE RECRUITS
2023 top D-Line recruits graded out extremely well at all three positions on the defensive front and we will be talking more about the massive impact that some of our Top 2023 NG recruits could potentially have in a 3-4 defensive scheme. Which brings me to our number two overall D-Line recruit, Justin Benton out of Newton high school in Georgia, who graded out the top overall recruit in the nation in our April re-rank and was just featured on Rivals in the Tweet below. Benton was truly a "game-wrecker" this past season and had 79 tackles (16 TFL), 9 sacks and 2 forced fumbles in 2019. Playing as stand-up DE, he reminded me of Pittsburgh Steelers Hybrid DE/OLB James Harrison in how much power he generates coming off the edge in his pass rush and his quick reflexes getting off the snap of the football. Justin is extremely versatile on the D-Line, as you see him lined up as a 4-3 DT at :20 seconds and he uses a beautiful rip/swim move to completely blow past the OG for the QB sack. He is able to use his outstanding upper body strength and stellar hand placement to keep O-linemen's hands at bay, while being able to locate ball carriers and aggressively finish tackles. When he lines up as a 4-3 DT, he reminds me more of an Aaron Donald with his explosive style of play and is becoming a well-known recruit nationally in the world of College Football Today.
