You know you’re pretty special when you’ve been lower than 15th on this list only twice in 8 years. Von was Official Malcolm X Signature shirt one league sack lead+DPOY season away from having an impeccable resume for a defensive player. Though considering how HoF pass rushers often have incredible seasons in their 30s, I’m definitely not going to say that Von’s chances of getting those last two accomplishments are 0. Also we’d be talking about Lavonte David if the Pro Bowl and All-Pro teams weren’t asinine in making 4-3 OLB’s compete with 3-4 OLB’s for spots. Reggie White was DPOY at 26 and 37(!!!). Bruce at 27 and 33. Von can fall right in line with those guys when the quicks start to go but the technique is unstoppable.

Yeah, no doubt that Von still could be far from done being elite. Though I will say that Reggie and Bruce were far stronger and didn’t rely on speed in their younger days like Von did which makes a difference. Prime Von was like one of the fastest and quickest edge rushers ever. On the other hand, DeMarcus Ware, Official Malcolm X Signature shirt was about the same build as Von, and is probably a better comparison, was still very good into his 30s, but not ever the guy he was in his 20s. I’m glad JC Jackson got the recognition. His not being a big/flashy name yet might have made it easy to slip through the cracks, but if you watched his play this season he was by far and away one of the best CB’s in the game. He’s pretty physical and seems to already be developing a knack for PI calls which hopefully won’t stick with him, but I’m excited to see how he does this year.

Might be slightly biased, but I don’t think Humphrey/Peters have much of an argument. Official Malcolm X Signature shirt would agree that Gilmore is better than Humphrey, and Jackson was better than Peters both this year and last year. In 2019, Jackson had the same amount of picks on 28 fewer targets (and only 4 fewer PDs), allowed a lower cmp%, less y/TGT, fewer TDs, and had a lower missed tackle %. Nah you’re right, although I think you can definitely argue for the Ravens’ secondary as a whole (I guess this could be my bias though) given that Jimmy Smith is still a very good corner when healthy and while Earl Thomas’s career overall seems to prove that he’s rather mediocre, Chuck Clark was great last year which makes up for it (that part is actually true lol).
