Bleacher report ranked the top 50, 4-3 DEs. Cam came in first! Olivier Vernon is 39th.......not bad for the rookie.

A few others of note:

Osi Umenyiora (Atl) - 31st
Elvis Dumervil (Bal) - 27th
Mario Williams (Buf) - 22nd
Chandler Jones (NE) - 18th
John Abraham - 8th, Free Agent

I did not even read his name, all I see in his picture and when I do the slide show it goes through 50 guys with Watt as # 1...

You must have somehow clicked on the 3-4 DE slideshow lower on the page. The link shows 4-3 DEs with Vernon #39 and Wake #1

Chandler Jones had one sack in his last 10 games and only 47 tackles all year..

And he is 18th best in the NFL?

It's bleacher report. Imo it's the sports equivalent of the National Enquirer.

Just to be clear, they're ranking the best DEs who played a majority of their snaps, in 2012, in a 4-3. In 2012, 20 of the 32 teams ran a 4-3. So if that's their criteria, then a maximum of 40 of the players should be their team's intended starters (2 starting DEs in a 4-3). So any player, ranking above 20 is in the bottom half for starters, vice versa, any player scoring 20 or below is in the top half for starters. Like, Vernon, they also considered non-starters as they evaluated the top 50. Though they rated Vernon higher than Odrick, since Odrick didn't make the list. In fairness, Odrick also plays DT.

If interested, here's a breakdown of each team's D.

It's Bleacher Report, so take it with a grain of salt

Per my last post, 18 is about the middle mark for starting 4-3 DEs.
