The 10 Biggest Hitters in the 2013 NFL Draft   
BY DAN HOPE (FEATURED COLUMNIST) ON FEBRUARY 7, 2013

The 2013 NFL draft has its fair share of players who can lay the wood and strike fear into their opponents. From defensive linemen who can bury the quarterback to safeties who can make coming over the middle a treacherous route for opposing receivers, there are players in this draft class who will be able to pop the ball out by getting a square hit on an opposing player.

It is important not to put too much stock into how hard a player can hit, though. In many cases, players who come up with highlight-reel hits also have poor tackling form, which causes them to miss some tackles and draw personal foul penalties for illegal or late hits.

Additionally, when people fall in love with hard-hitting players, it can often cause them to overlook the players’ actual flaws. Two recent examples of this are current NFL player Brandon Meriweather and the retired Roy Williams, who each earned multiple Pro Bowl berths based largely on their big hitting ability, but both strong safeties struggled consistently in pass coverage.

Nonetheless, while the following group of players includes both future standouts and potential busts, all of these players can really rock the opposing quarterback, ball-carrier and/or receiver.

Thought it was an intresting slideshow. I see Schiano wanting any of these guys as a high round choice.

Too bad hard hitting is no longer an asset in the Neutered Football League...
