Best DL/LB/DB Trios in the NFL

NFL.com was running a poll on the team with the best DL/LB/DB trio and not surprisingly the 49ers weren't on the list - Jags/Ravens/Cardinals/Vikings were the poll options - but it got me thinking we should absolutely be on that list by next year as a top 3 trio assuming our core stays healthy.

Buckner - Top 3 Interior DL
Foster - Top 5 LB (when healthy)
Sherman - Proven Top 5 CB (when healthy)

Then when you think of a core you build around for the future (assuming Whitherspoon continues to grow) - I'm not sure there's any trio I'd prefer over the below besides maybe the Jags or Rams.

Buckner
Foster
Whitherspoon or Tartt

ok. lets not start that again. last year at this time.. there were posts saying we had the best front 7 in football. we have not proved anything. our main guys like foster and sherman have question marks with injuries and other things with foster
Best ever was Sapp, Brooks, Lynch ?

Yeah I might have to agree..
Grady Jarrett/Deion Jones/Keanu Neal is my favorite trio.
lulz. not even close to being included on that list.
