In your opinion, who was the best DT to come into the league since 2006?

There's gonna be 3-4 4-3 defense confusion here but I'll throw out a few names I like

Haloti Ngata, Kyle Williams (Bills), Jason Jones, Domata Peko, Pat Sims, Paul Soliai

haloti comes to mind.

Sadly, not the OK boys, Okoye and Okam.

I'd say Ngata if you're looking for a bad ass, pocket collapsing, run stuffing machine. If you're thinking more along the lines of a gap penetrator, I'd say Jason Jones.

Haloti Ngata. No question in my mind.

Ngata is a little butter ball of badassery.

Agree with the consensus, and it's not even close, Ngata.

It's funny cause in the 2006 TTMB mock , I took Ngata over Mario with the Packers pick . I was impressed that Ngata played fullback on the punting team for Oregon . I figured a guy that big and quick is a stud .

Agree on Ngata. The dude's a beast!

Suh looks like he might be the real deal too.

Definitely Ngata, but I'd also like to throw in Sedrick Ellis' name in the pot.

He's got the potential to be good. I think he needs a couple healthy seasons to be considered with Ngata though

Oh yeah for sure. I'm not putting him on the same level as Ngata, I'm just saying that he has the potential to be one of the younger beastly defensive tackles.

This dude..ray lewis all of sudden became ray lewis again & that defense returned to form when he got there.

Ngatta is a bad dude. I remember when people were hesitant cause of his weight, I was all over his big ass. LOVED him.

haloti ngata's the monster in this time frame. dude's a bulldog with both slide and coverage skills. i dont like that some are seperated between 3-4 and 4-3 though. the best can do both. the jags did it with henderson and stroud. minny does it with the williams bro's. i'd give an arm and leg for a centerfielder, but the texans could obliterate as a defense with a true "push the pile" big boy to turn mario and okoye and barwin's round the edge rush into quarterback death match.

In no particular order... Albert Haynesworth, Jamal Williams, Kevin Williams, Richard Seymour, and Haloti Ngata

ok, so those guys may not have "come into the league since"....but I guess that's my short list of badass DT's. Tommie Harris is pretty darn good too.

If we go back to 2005 Jay Ratliff would be a serious contender for the honor.

I like Suh. He has the potential to be a Warren Sapp clone.

As far as guys that are in the league right now, I give it to Ngata hands down. He turned Ray Lewis' career around.

I like Suh. He has the potential to be a Warren Sapp clone.That's a hell of a lot closer in comparison to the Okoye is the next Warren Sapp crap I saw a few years ago.

I have to be honest: I have never believed in Okoye. I hated the pick then and I still hate it now. I have nothing against him. He is a great kid. But the ONLY reason he was selected where he was is his age. If he had been the same age as everyone else he would have been taken in the second or third round.

Kris Jenkins for the Jets is pretty good.

I almost beat myself when we passed Patrick Willis. That hurt.

I'll add in Vince Wilfork. If we have a shot at this guy (unlikely because N.E. is expected to resign him), I'm all for dropping tons of cash to get this type of dominant player. We've got the LBs, putting in an OL-eater like Wilfork would let Demeco and Cush dominate the middle of the field. And his ability to push the pocket means more productions for Williams and Smith/Barwin off the edges.

Yep. Myers probably helped Jenkins attain certain incentive stats to add more $ to that already massive contract. You could say that Myers pretty much helped Jenkins add another story to his house.
