We’ve seen many breathtaking performances, whether it be over a year or in an individual game, but we’ve never really looked back on things in a longer sense. So consider that something we’re rectifying. We’ve added up the grades each player has earned over the past five seasons and then normalized their performance on every snap based on the position they lined up. It was a more complicated process than that, but you didn’t come here to hear me yap about that. You came to see the Top 10 graded edge rushers of the PFF era. 2. DeMarcus Ware, Dallas Cowboys (+154.8) It’s a given that regardless of how the Cowboys play, DeMarcus Ware is going to wreak havoc. Featuring in the Top 10 for both his pass rushing and run defense (as you can see below), it shouldn’t surprise anyone to hear that Ware has picked up an astonishing 337 combined sacks, hits, and hurries over the past five years. He’s no friend of quarterbacks, that’s for sure. In the end, the rating above shows there was very little difference between Ware and Harrison, with Ware losing out because of his tendency to draw those dreaded yellow flags (36 of them). Still, given what he’s produced on the field you can live with that, as the 11th overall pick of the 2005 draft has become a truly dominant player.
