2018 NFL Regional Combine Watch: Preseason Top Defensive NFL Hopefuls For 2019

Check Out Some Potential Defensive Talents For The 2019 NFL Regional Combine Trials

The desire for countless small school defensive players is to impose their will on opponents. Unfortunately, many of these athletes will not be able to proceed beyond this 2018-19 collegiate season. However, there will be some talents from small institutions who will have the opportunity to be in attack mode.

This is where the NFL Regional Combine comes in, as a bridge to assist defensive NFL hopefuls in their journey towards NFL success.

Last season, 90 players from the Division II level made a splash in the NFL, and with unknown gems scattered across the country, that number will increase.

Due to the proven track record of the NFL Regional Combine, the playing field for the discovery of gems from unknown programs has been leveled tremendously.

Here’s a preseason look at the potential 2019 defensive NFL hopefuls who may journey through the RC platform for the opportunity to keep on hitting.
