Pro Sports Wrap - Sports Personality of the Day:Tony Romo

10/2011 Defensive End Rankings

October 23rd 2011 15:28
1. Justin Tuck- Stout against the run and can bring the heat too. Just a monster who has also mastered the art of the strip sack.

2. Julius Peppers- Makes everyone around him that much better and does everything as a player. Peppers can even tip passes regularly on the line (9 PDs last season).

3. Justin Smith- You have to take into account that this guy is a 3-4 end, and he is a beastly one indeed. Nobody brings pressure as regularly as he does from the three technique spot; just watch what he did to Matthew Stafford last week.

4. Dwight Freeney- I don't think we can ever stop gushing about his spin moves.

5. Trent Cole- Underrated end who excels at stuffing the run, and that's why I vaulted him to the top five.

6. Haloti Ngata- Absolutely destructive force.

7. Jared Allen- Gets a lot of sacks, but it's not really about the sacks. Still, there aren't many guys better than Allen.

8. Charles Johnson- The contract has helped him shed the underrated role, although he hasn't been quite as unstoppable as he was last year. But hell, he's been damn good this season too.

9. Terrell Suggs- He has a majority of his well-deserved snaps at defensive end.

10. Ray Edwards- I love his ability to get pressure and is one of the best 4-3 ends in the game.

11. Richard Seymour- So difficult to beat with that upper body strength and gets a ton of pressure on the inside. Not only that, but he also plays the run even better.

12. John Abraham- One-dimensional, but he is overpowering in that dimension.

13. Robert Mathis- He and Freeney will spend their days roasting offensive linemen together for the rest of their careers (I hope).

14. Jason Babin- Although he makes far too many penalties, their is no doubting his ability to put the QB to the ground.

15. Osi Umenyiora- Worse than the stats indicate, but the stats are off the charts.
