NFL  > General NFL  > Best defensive playmakers/offense disrupters

I thought this might be fun, who are your best defensive playmakers or guys that other offenses have to slide protection to or throw away from? I'm not exactly looking for guys with big stats, who might benefit from a system or scheme they play in, just players who have the physical tools and instincts to give offenses headaches. Here is mine:

Clay Matthews- This guy is a beast and just a disrupter of offense

Luke Kheckley- Very good in coverage, great instincts for a young player

Troy Polamau- Yeah he's still got it even this year

Richard Sherman- Best corner in the league IMO and gets into opponents heads

J.J. Wyatt- Just a beast off the edge, strong against pass and run

Geno Atkins- Commands double teams and can pressure QB up the middle

Patrick Willis- This guy literally scares me, vicious hitter and roamer of the middle

DeMarcus Ware- He's been doing it for a while but he's still one of the best

Charles Tillman- Guy has a knack for finding the ball and creating game changers

Robert Mathis but I am homer. Ware is a beast, Cowboys have a great one there.

I love Mathis in that "Rush" position they created for him, it still amazes me how at 235 pounds he can be so effective playing in the front 7, and not just sitting behind his D-Line but he goes and gets it!

Matthews is a wild man.
