No. 11: Ra’Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota

A converted tight end, Ra’Shede Hageman offers everything a team wants in a defensive tackle. He’s huge (6-6, 311 pounds), he’s a freakish athlete, and he’s improved every season. Entering 2013 as one of the Big Ten’s top NFL draft prospects, Hageman is the Big Ten’s elite defensive tackle. He’ll have his work cut out for him as a senior, as opponents will double team him every chance they get. Still, Hageman possesses the size, strength and speed to combat the attention and be productive. And even if he isn’t making the stop or getting the sack, his presence will allow teammates to make plays.

5 tackles
