Default Re: GOAT defensive players?

I think LT is a bit overrated. I think people seem to ignore that he played in one of the best linebacking corps of all time, who did a great job of hiding his deficiencies.

I also think Ray Lewis is overrated a great deal. Fine player, but he's not among the top 5 defenders I have seen in my lifetime.

Reggie White
Lawrence Taylor
Charles Haley
Derrick Thomas
Deion Sanders
Roy Woodson
Ronnie Lott
Greg Lloyd(*weeps for what could have been*)
The criminally underrated Cornelius Bennett
Kevin Greene
John Randle
Samurai Mike

Were all better than Ray Lewis. I might throw in Darrell Green as someone who was also has an argument for being better.
