DL lists: sack artists, run stuffers

Updated: February 18, 2003, 2:06 PM ET
Editor's Note: Mel Kiper Jr. separates his defensive-line prospects into two key categories -- his top 5 sack artists and top 5 run stuffers (*=underclassmen).

Sack Artists
1. Terrell Suggs*, DE, Arizona State (6-4, 262): As a pass rusher, he took over games all season long. In 2002, he recorded an NCAA single-season record 24 sacks and led the nation in tackles for loss (31½) while tying for the Pac-10 lead in forced fumbles (six). He also has the size to hold up against the run. Athletic and fast, Suggs was recruited as a tailback.
