The NFL's Top 15 Defensive Ends, 2000-2009

Continuing my positional rankings for the decade that was, defensive ends are now on the table.

The challenge of ranking this group is the many different styles of defensive ends out there—trying not to miss the underrated guys from the 3-4's of the world and trying not to overrate the specialized pass rushers who don't help in the run game.

The only requirement I made to thin the herd was at least five quality starting seasons—that took out candidates like Osi, Mario Williams, Trent Cole, and Robert Mathis.

I came up with 15 on my list today, with two guys just missing (Leonard Little and Aaron Kampman). I hope you enjoy the show and feel free to leave comments.
