UPDATE: Head over and make your 2019 NFL Defensive Player of the Year predictions.
With this year's football season underway, it's time to make your NFL 2018 Defensive Player of the Year predictions. Last year, Aaron Donald took home the honors, and he's in the running for a repeat—that is, unless any of the other candidates on the list take home the honors. Regardless, there's some serious talent making their way up the runnings in 2018, including the NFL's best defensive players such as Chargers' Joey Bosa, Jaguars' Jalen Ramsey, and the Broncos' Von Miller, among others. Whether they're top linebackers or the toughest defensive ends, each of these NFL players could win the award this year, but who do you think is the most deserving of the 2018 NFL Defensive Player of the Year?
While we may be all a little partial to our favorite teams, we all have a general idea of who looks good this season—especially after tuning into the 2018 preseason. So, though you may be inclined to find your favorite player and vote him up (and you're more than welcome to), be sure to cast your votes for who you think will win the NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award in 2018.
