Defensive Tackles  

The were 23 DTs selected in the 2021 draft, as follows:

Round 1 - 2

Round 2 - 2

Round 3 - 3

Round 4 - 3

Round 5 - 7

Round 6 - 5

Round 7 - 1

 

The 2022 DT draft class rebounded after an underwhelming 2021 offering, but it wasn't stellar. There was some very good talent at the top, thanks to Georgia, and the selections up to and including Perrion Winfrey (taken 108th overall) were very promising. Aside from the 5th-Round selections of D.J. Davidson (147th) and Matthew Butler (175th), the back half of the draft was very middling. 

The 2023 DT draft class should be better than that of its predecessor. Even though the body count of twenty-three DT selections in 2022 looks great on paper, half of that was marginal talent. 2023 is full of some very good players. There's talent at the top, easily running through Round 5.
