4. LaRon Landry - Safety, Washington Redskins
3. James Harrison - Linebacker, Pittsburgh Steelers
Check out this video if you don't know what I'm talking about. Illegal hits and dirty player talk aside, Harrison is a hell of a linebacker. He is deserving as one of my top five players due to the intensity he plays the game with.
2. Ndamukong Suh - Defensive Lineman, Detroit Lions
currently serving a two game suspension for his illegal on the field actions against the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving day. Suh is easily the most dominant defensive line force in the game today. The attention he warrants as a pass rusher is proof enough that he is feared. His ability to swallow up backs in the running game make Suh a dual threat to opposing offenses.
