Top 50 NFL Defensive Players


Recommended Posts

This one took forever. 

Aaron Donald seems like he wants to retire soon, so I doubt he jumps ahead of LT or possibly Lewis. I'd be shocked if JJ Watt moves. Bulldog Turner is the greatest defensive player of the pre-Defensive Stat days. Defenders prior to 1960 are at a huge disadvantage because of a lack of stats. Hutson at #32 is also the WR that's at #1. He's the greatest two-way player in NFL history. Howley at #47 is a candidate to make it to the Hall of Fame this year. If anyone is curious, TJ Watt is in the 50s, and could make this list this year if he doesn't miss too much time and excels.

How many players did you calculate this for? I saw Zach Thomas at 41, and it made me wonder where Jason Taylor would be.

About 700 or 800 scored pts.  Taylor is probably somewhere between 51-100. I’m not on my computer right now
