BBUSA NFL End Of Season Positional Rankings – Part Two – Defense & Special Teams

Yesterday we took a look at our end of season rankings across the main positions on the offense and also for head coaches and rookies in the NFL this past regular season.

We will now turn our attention to the other units on the field, the defense and the special teams units, and as a special bonus, we will rank each of the 32 teams in the NFL on offense and defense for the past regular season.

As with the last article, we are presenting these lists to you as opinion and they are intended to provoke debate. Are there any players rated too high, or too low on the list? Any names included that should not have been, or any not included that should have been?
