2014 Preseason Big Ten Position Rankings: Defensive Back

While running back and linebacker seem to be the positions most people associate with the Big Ten, there’s a new position that people need to start considering — defensive back.

The Big Ten is home to some very deep and very good defensive backfields, and in 2014 that tradition continues. Michigan State loses some big parts, but the “No Fly Zone” is still well in effect. However, there’s more to the Big Ten’s DB’s than MSU, as Michigan, Penn State and Nebraska have plenty of top level talent to compete for the top spot in the rankings.
