    The Giants and Vikings are #1 and #2, respectively. The Chargers and Ravens round out the top 5.

    I think you have to look at a guy like Mike Wright as well. He has played the nose and end in the 3-4 and has grown into a key reserve.

    You have to consider the top OLB pass rusher too, where we haven't been exceptional since McGinest left.

    Vrabel fills the role well and is a fine all around linebacker. A.D. has been stuck in the middle, which I don't see in the future.

    Either way, that linebacker is our equivalent of a Strahan type DE because all our lineman are tackles.

    After the retirement of Strahan, does the Giants' line deserve to be ahead of the Patriots or Ravens?
