Player Rankings: Top Defensive Players


Perimeter (Not in any particular order)

Venoy Overton, Washington: Part of a very quick backcourt, Overton is a pest defensively.
Marcus Ginyard, North Carolina: Very good length and size helps him defend multiple positons.
Devin Gibson, Texas-San Antonio: Has averaged at least 3.0 steals in both of his seasons so far.
J.T. Tiller/Zaire Taylor, Missouri: Hands-down the best defensive backcourt in the country.
Chris Kramer, Purdue: Relentless on the defensive end; his hustle helps him tremendously.
Avery Bradley, Texas: Only a freshman, Bradley will immediately separate himself as an elite defender.
Jerome Dyson, Connecticut: He's quick and athletic and should be recovered from last season's injury.
Damian Johnson, Minnesota: A versatile defender, Johnson can guard nearly any position.
Devan Downey, South Carolina: Plays the passing lanes better than anyone in the college game.

London Warren, Dayton: Unsung leader for the Flyers is the key to their pressure defense.

Post (Not in any particular order)

Cole Aldrich, Kansas: Might be the best defensive rebounder in the country, and can also block shots.
Kenneth Faried, Morehead State: Very athletic big man will be an NBA player very soon.
Omar Samhan, St. Mary’s: Won't have Diamon Simpson anymore, but he can still control the post.
Jarvis Varnado, Mississippi State: The best shot-blocker in the college game, he changes games.
Trevor Booker, Clemson: He can block shots with the best of them, and dominates the glass.
Solomon Alabi, Florida State: He is only going to improve with another year under his belt.
Jerome Jordan, Tulsa: Absolutely dynamite shot-blocker is tough to score on.
Larry Sanders, VCU: Very long and athletic forward is a defensive menace in the CAA.
Marquis Blakely, Vermont: One of the best defenders and rebounders on the mid-major level.
Greg Echenique, Rutgers: Developing into arguably the top interior defender in the Big East.
