Continuing my positional rankings for the past decade, defensive tackles are up.
This was a really hard group to separate, as there were 20 very solid choices for the list. To thin things out, I decided to have a 96-game or six full season-minimum to make the list.
This took out the younger guys like Albert Haynesworth, Vince Wilfork, Tommie Harris, and Darnell Dockett, as well as some of the leftovers from the '90s, like Ted Washington, who played almost till his 40th birthday.
The just misses for the list were John Henderson and Pat Williams.
So here they are: my top 10 for the decade.
(Note: All players are judged only for what they did in the years 2000 through 2009.)
