  • Top 10 Defensive ends going into next year

    Who are they?

  • #2
    In no particular order

    Mario Williams
    Julius Peppers
    John Abraham
    Jared Allen
    Justin Tuck
    Osi Umenyiora (he was injured, but he's still a freaking beast)
    Shaun Ellis
    Trevor Pryce
    Robert Mathis
    Richard Seymour

    IMO, if anyone uses a scale of 1-10 and actually ranks them, this will turn into a homer fest and will be pointless.

    As I've always said there's a group of players this is the best 10 imo regardless of system.

      Interesting to see Mathis on that list and no Freeney. I wonder who most Colts fans think is the best DE out of the two.

      Personally I feel that Aaron Kampman should be on that list somewhere but I guess if he is moving to OLB then he won't be an end next year.

      When healthy Patrick Kerney could be on that list too.

          Dockett hasn't had any PT yet in a true 3-4, but he most likely will still be top 5 at the position

            Freeney, and honestly it isn't that close in my opinion. Freeney is doubled pretty much EVERY single play. That can not be underestimated on how it will effect the production of both Freeney and Mathis.

              And people don't believe me that Aaron Smith is underrated. Might be the most underrated player in the game. Simply a beast at DE, and a huge reason the Steelers defense was as good as it was.

              Thanks to The Dynasty for the sig

                I am absolutely shocked you put Trevor Pryce on that list. Seriously? Guy that has had 1 10+ sack season out of the past 8 years? I wouldn't put him near a top 10 list of the best DE's.

                  3-4 DEs... 4-3 DEs? Are we talking Complete 4-3 DEs or passing rushing specialists that get those sacks?

                    I agree with this completely. Aaron Smith is a monster and gets no credit because of all the other guys on his team. I would easily put him on the top 10 list.

                    We as Ravens fans are clearly scum of the earth, and should just be happy that these great people, who cheer for nothing than the finest, morally impeccable players, playing on the finest, most morally impeccable teams, will grace us with their presence, and words of wisdom.

                      After reading a couple of the lists I scrolled down to type something like "It's too hard to put 3-4 and 4-3 ends on the same list because they require such different talents....." and then I saw you had the same thought, lol.

                      I think if I did it, I'd put 4-3 ends and 3-4 OLBs on the same list while 3-4 ends would get their own list...

                        doing that wouldn't accomplish anything because then you are combining two completely different positions into one list...so you might as well just do a DE in either system and accomplish the same incomplete list....

                        No Order (4-3):
                        Mario Williams
                        Julius Peppers
                        Trent Cole
                        Aaron Kampman (until he plays OLB i'm including him here)
                        Osi Umenyiora (pre-injury)
                        Jared Allen
                        Justin Tuck
                        John Abraham
                        Dwight Freeney
                        Patrick Kerney (pre-injury)

                          I normally don't rank players or do these type of threads, but I am more interested in seeing how others rank and evaluate players. But I thought I'd post because 3-4 Des and 4-3 DEs have different responsibilities, so tossing them in one category wouldn't be accurate to rank them.

                          If I were to rank the DEs I'd have 3 seperate categories:

                          3-4 DEs:

                          4-3 COMPLETE DEs ( Ability to get sacks and stop the run equally well)

                          4-3 Pass Rushing specialists ( Ability to get sacks, but don't really stop the run well at all, as reflected in their tackle count)

                            So when's the next positional top 10 coming out?

                              "Rawr, rawr, rawr...can't nobody understand you she-bear!"

                              4-3 DE's will always get more recognition over 3-4 DE's, just as 3-4 OLB's get more recognition than 4-3 OLB's. You know that, SC. Just look forward to the Top 10 OLB thread where James Harrison and The Lamarr Woodley will get slurped. ;)
