Looking at the reemergence of the 3-4 defense and the success it is having in today's game, I was wondering who has best played the ever important position of NT. Even if the player never played in a 3-4 but would just excel at that position, mention him here.

Personally I can think of only recent players and I'd have to say the most continuous and consistent success comes from NT Jamal Williams of the Chargers. So let me hear who you think is the best of all time at the nose tackle position

Gilbert brown wasn't a 3-4 NT but he fritz shurmer asked him to do the same thing, they lined him up right over the center and told him to play two gaps.....

I can't think of many really really great NTs but i bet Gilbert in his prime could compete with any of them.....

Well I think Ted Washington, Shaun Rogers, and Jamal Williams are all in the hunt for being the greatest NT of all-time. Kris Jenkins could be in the discussions by the time he's finished, and Casey Hampton has had a very solid career too. Would you consider Pat Williams for this list too? Who are the great nose tackles of the 70's, 80's, and into the 90's?

Pat Williams should be up there as one of the best, IMO. Ted Washington same, really what a beast.

People... Nobody will remember Jamal Williams in 5 to 10 years. He was a loner for most of his career then emerged late in his career fora 2 or 3 year stint as the league's best NT(by a slight margin), and has now become average like he used to be.

Yes, Victor Cruz is a bigger asset to a QB than Antonio Brown is. Id be hard-pressed to find many people that would take the latter.

Was William Perry a nose tackle or a defensive tackle?

Ted Washington and Dana Stubblefield we're pretty nasty.

Shaun rogers? he has only played 3-4 NT one year which was last year.

Hence the reason why I included guys like Kris Jenkins, Pat Williams, and yes, Shaun Rogers. Wink

Wow 11 posts until we get the answer. Kudos DKTurtle51.

Jim Otto called him the strongest player he ever lined up against.

And for sack totals I have seen anywhere from 68 to mid 90's (sacks were never kept as an official stat during his career). Even if we take 68 that is from a 3-4 NT. The guys is on the All-Centruy team of 2 franchises for a reason.
