No other team is on our level. Pitt is close, Balt close Bears farther behind
this is really debatable, he is the best pass rushing 3-4 OLB, he is basically a defensive end that stands up, he is really nothing special in coverage, and very very pedestrian in that area...
suggs is nearly as good rushing the passer and is FAR better in coverage...and then there are quite a few other OLB's in the league that are coverage aces in regards to linebackers in coverage..
my top total package OLB's in both the 3-4 and 4-3 would be..
Lawson is now making a strong case to be 4-5 on this list with his instincts to the ball, coverage skills, and newly refreshed ability to also put pressure on the passer..
a one sided player doesnt create a complete player..
