NFL Draft Preview: Defensive tackles have a lot on their plates

UNC's Cam Thomas and Central Florida's Torell Troup are run-plugging nose tackles who could go in the second round. Thomas is better than Troup. Thomas played in a 4-3 scheme with the Tar Heels and is not an athletic penetrator. But he probably will be better in the pros in a 3-4 style. He had a strong showing at the Senior Bowl. He's a solid 330. (Buffalo News)
