Along with being arguably the most important player in a great run defense, a defensive tackle must possess a multitude of abilities: a good burst off the line of scrimmage, quick feet, good hands, the ability to diagnose and react to the play, and the strength to interfere with it.

No wonder top defensive tackles are some of the most coveted recruits in the country—and why many of 2013's have already found their likely destinations come Signing Day 2013.

While for some, video might have been hard to come by, I've ranked who I think are the top 10 defensive tackles in the 2013 recruiting class. See if what you've seen and heard agrees with my assessments.

I have also added 3 sleepers. Nothing better than a diamond in the rough when recruiters are blazing that long hard recruiting trail. Remember you heard it here first.
