Day two of the 2018-19 NFL Position Power Rankings takes a look at the guys who are trying to make it a living hell out on-the-field for the quarterbacks. Yes, I’m talking about the defensive ends currently playing in a 4-3 scheme.

If these guys are out there making it a nightmare for the opposing team’s quarterback, there is a good chance your favorite NFL team is having a lot of success on the defensive side of the ball. Football is a complicated game to figure out, but that’s one of those things that everyone knows…..at least I think so.

BUSINESS IS ABOUT TO PICK UP……….
