You mis-spelled the name of the guy who's #2 on the list, there's supposed to be a "F@#$ing" between "Michael" and "Clayton".

Mike Croel had an impressive season?!

Just the one. He started with double figure sacks and defensive rookie of the year. Very much went downhill from there though.

At least Steve Slaton was consistent with his college career. He should change positions every year -- his first year is always gangbusters, followed by an inevitable decline.
