Screw it, I put him in. No one done EVERYTHING that he did at his peak.

LT (best edge rusher of all time)

Ray Lewis (best MLB of all time)

Ed Reed (best safety of all time)

Aaron Donald (best interior DL of all time - I think he will eclipse JJ Watt without much trouble)

Deion Sanders (best CB of all time) / Ronnie Lott (2nd best safety of all time)

1. LT

2. Reggie White

3. D ick Butkus

4. Rod Woodson

5. JJ Watt

 

Looking at a lot of these lists and it's hard to believe the best defensive players of all time were only born between 1950 and 1965...
