Here is another installment of the All-Time Top 5. You’ve seen the criteria on the others, so I won’t go over all of that again. Feel free to provide feedback, good or bad. If you disagree with the rankings, let me know and why.

Just Missed

Geno Atkins, Cincinnati Bengals, 2010-Present

Geno is still very young and just getting started in his career. He led all NFL interior defensive linemen last year in sacks as well as earning a spot in the Pro Bowl. He is a beast who has a knack for getting to the QB. Even if he doesn’t get the sack, he disrupts the game. He gets a lot of pressures and rushes which is big in helping the defense. If he spends his career in stripes and stays healthy, the sky is the limit for Geno. He could very easily top this list if he continues his production.

By the Numbers: 2 seasons, 32 games, 10.5 sacks, 66 total tackles, 2 forced fumbles, 2 fumbles recovered, 1 touchdown

    @muskiesfan I would have added Steve Chomyszak out of pure awesome last name status.

    @CincyJungle Definitely a great last name. He played some DE as well. He was on the short list, just didn’t make the final cut.
