Ranking the SEC's defensive ends for 2013

After a week off position rankings, it's time to turn our attention to one of the positions the SEC is known for: defensive ends. Remember, we're ranking these prospects on the impact they'll make in 2013, not just digesting last year's results.

2013 presents an interesting year for defensive ends. Outside of the known commodity Jadeveon Clowney, there are slew of guys looking to become No. 2.

Let's roll:

The franchise

1. Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina

No denying Jadeveon Clowney is the most talented and physically gifted player in the country for 2013. In fact, he may be the biggest God-given athletic specimen of my lifetime in college football. After 13.5 sacks and 23.5 tackles for loss as a sophomore, I just hope I don't fine myself on his 'scared' list. Clowney is set to dominate in 2013.

Underrated senior

2. Chris Smith, Arkansas

Few are talking about Arkansas' Chris Smith. Smith became the Hogs' most improved player throughout 2013, and he was the one player who cared about the product that was put on the field last year. Smith finished with 9.5 sacks and 13 tackles for loss, and he's looking for a monster senior year.
