So was AD when he was just a prospect
Newton doesn't have nearly the production
Donald had. He doesn't have the freak physique that Donald has.

The only parallel is position and the fact they are short. Newton reminds me more of Warren Sapp than Donald (short and pudgy looking).

LT
Deion
Reggie White
Aaron Donald
I think there is debate on CB. Deion isn't clearly way better than any one else was compared to LT, Reggie, and Donald. Those three literally had no real peers at the top of their game, while Deion had CBs who were close to as good.

Questionable.

Bruce Smith and Michael Strahan were both on Reggie's level as contemporaries. Of these guys, only LT stands apart as someone who had no peer really at any point.

Love Ed Reed, but he was surrounded by a ton of talent there in Baltimore and had Earl Thomas on the left coast playing very well.

Semantics.
When healthy Eric Swann was better than AD...that's why they kept cutting his knees out from under him.

Eh neither were quite the player that White was though.

Derrick Thomas is arguable, but he came at the end of LTs career

Thomas wasn't even close to the playmaker that Ed Reed was, which is why Reed was the best safety ever. Teams avoided Reed and he still got 64 career interceptions.

Ed Reed had 73 career INT’s including playoffs. He’s definitely is a stratosphere by himself.
