ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- While Michigan won’t see a ton of offensive stars in 2013, there is little question about the amount of elite defensive talent the Wolverines will face this season.

Six of the top defenders Michigan will play are in the top five of their respective positions for the 2014 NFL draft as rated by Mel Kiper Jr. The top three could all challenge to be drafted as high, if not higher, than Michigan star tackle Taylor Lewan next April as well.

It isn’t a surprise, either, that six of the 10 top defensive players Michigan will play come from the Wolverines’ three major rivals: Notre Dame, Ohio State and Michigan State.
