Of course our very own James Harrison is a beast and after another year under his belt you can add Lamarr Woodley to this list.

Rod Woodson ranks it:

1st: Demarcus Ware
2nd: Jared Allen
3rd: Shawne Merriman
4th: Mario WIlliams
5th: James Harrison

Yeah people are gonna say B.S, and also mention he left a lot of greats (as Jamie Dukes mentioned such as Peppers and Freeney) but not a terrible list. There's a video clip on NFL.com

Yeah, I think Woodson is pretty much correct in his list. Harrison is not a prototypical edge rusher, but rather a guy that uses his strength and a brutal "dip and rip" move instead of speed and a swim move.

I could think that guys like Peppers, Uminorya, Freeney, Suggs, could be in that mix too.

I got my vote in for Harrison but he probably won't overtake Ware.

Rod lived his lifes work on the field..........His second life is not fair to him because he cannot be who he really is.......It is way too slow for him when you are just sitting there talking.......The right things and words cannot come out of him at this speed........The right things always come out of him when he was yelling on the field........Amped up ....going 120 mph....... That is Rod.....
