First up , we give you the Top 5 Longpoles of the NFL. DB’s, LB’s, D-Ends. Some would argue that if these guys played in the MLL we’d see lacrosse featured in the SportsCenter Top 10 way more often. Me? I just think these fellas would be dirty poles. The flash, the fury, the all-out madness… they would elevate the game.
5. REY MAUALUGA
He hasn’t proved himself in the NFL yet, but we all know what he did at USC. Any offensive player who sees this guy’s mug comin’ at him would be terrified. So Rey, you’re in at #5. Time to get to work.
4. DEMECO RYANS
The 250lb. MLB from Alabama is a physical specimen. In 2006, he lead the league in tackles in his first ever NFL season and was named Rookie of the Year. DeMeco makes it happen… on and off the field.
3. ED REED
Ed Reed brings the flash and incomparable determination. Not to mention he may well be the best safety to ever play the game.
2. JUSTIN TUCK
Tuck is a madman. He doesn’t stop the pressure, and he doesn’t care what your name is. He will take you down.
