Off to the Hall of Fame for this dude. Will go in a year after J.J. Watt.

The Rams considered him, Kupp, Stafford, and McVay as the pillars holding up their organization. He's impossible to replace.
He's probably the best IDL of the past 30 years...and I don't really think it's that close except for about 3 years of Watt.

Interesting. 10X pro bowl, 8x All pro. 3x Defensive player of the year.

Warren Sapp was 7x pro bowl, 4x all pro, one time Defensive player of the year.

Only other name that came to mind. Lawrence Taylor was also 10x Pro Bowl, 8X all pro, 3x Defensive player of the year.

You can make an argument that Aaron Donald is among the top 5 defensive players of all time.

I'd say that Taylor is the all time best ILB, Reggie White best all time DE, Donald all time best DT.
