Last week, I wrote an article entitled Oakland Raiders: Best Offensive Players by Position Since the 1990s. I went position-by-position and analyzed the best player by position on the Oakland Raiders in my lifetime as a fan, roughly around the year 1993.
Today, I tackle the Raiders' defense over the years. This unit had the most debatable positions, whereas the offense had many more clear cut winners.
The Raiders have a tradition dating back to the 1970s of having a tough defense built on getting to the quarterback and having a stellar secondary. These players have kept that tradition alive.
