Default Toughest players in the 2012 draft?

I just got finished watching the video link posted by CND on the Texans Talk page, http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=90735 and this got me to thinking we could use some more guys like that. So who are this years toughest, meanest, bad ass players, offense or defense regardless of round, in the 2012 draft? I'm talking guys like Cushing, Ray Lewis, AJ etc... guy that would just as soon kick your ass as play football. In other words Guys with Heart.

Mike Martin, the DT from Michigan. Me and another board member (forgot his name, WolverineFan maybe?) are big on him. Watch his highlights and you see a man who fights on every play and just doesn't give up.

As a former wrestling champion, he knows the importance of leverage and he can get up field and crush opposing running backs and quarterbacks. Not only that, despite being 6'1" and weighing in at 300-lbs, he commands double teams and can still find a way to set the tone and be disruptive.

He's like the Tim Tebow of defensive linemen but with A LOT MORE skill than the latter...

Yes sir. Martin is a beast. Wish I could find the clip of him leveling that MSU RB last year.

Vontaze Burfict is straight nasty. Best quote to describe him from a scout "what you get after you kick Ray Lewis' dog.

Ronnell Lewis, not a lot of college productions and probably won't be a great pro but in terms of toughness...guy is a freaking head hunter.

Burfict has dropped to late rounds on some and off the board on other team's sheets.

Vontaze Burfict bombs his Pro Day, too

It's an absolute shame! I would still draft him in the late third or fourth round though. His skillset is ideal for this defense. We have some solid defensive leaders to keep him in check. I would love to see if what Wade could do with him.
