FOX Sports CFB analyst names 2021 NFL Draft defense, includes 3 B1G players
FOX Sports college football analyst RJ Young has released his 2021 NLF Draft defense and has included some familiar B1G names.
Three B1G players were mentioned on Young’s defensive list, which was based on a standard defense. Ohio State’s Shaun Wade (CB) and Tommy Togiai (DT), as well as Penn State’s Micah Parsons (LB) were all included.
Here’s a look at Young’s 2021 NFL Draft defense. He believes these are the top players at the positions for this year’s draft:

Entering the 2020 season, Wade was considered one of the top cornerback prospects in college football. Even though he struggled at times throughout the year, the Buckeye is still receiving plenty of praise for draft analysts. He ended the season with 35 tackles, 4 pass break-ups and 2 interceptions.
Togiai burst onto the scene as a force on the middle of the defensive line for the Buckeyes last fall. He was an enforcer up front, ending the season with 4.5 tackles for loss, 3 sacks, 2 pass break-ups and a forced fumble in Ohio State’s 7-1 season.
Parsons was the lone B1G player on this list who didn’t play in 2020, opting out due to the pandemic. Still, the former Nittany Lion is considered the top linebacker prospect in the draft and could still be a Top 10 pick in April.
