As we continue to look through the past twenty-year history of the Atlanta Falcons, we’ll be focusing on the defensive line. This will focus on players who spent the majority of their time at defensive end or defensive tackle.

Previous rankings for the team include the best specialists, the five best offensive linemen, the three best tight ends, the five best wide receivers, and the five best running backs of the past twenty seasons. We’ll be focusing on linebackers later this week before ending with the defensive backs.

Honorable Mention: Chauncey Davis was never a superstar for the Atlanta Falcons, but he played in 96 games for the team during his six seasons. He contributed 182 tackles, ten sacks, caused four turnovers, and even scored a touchdown during his last season with the team.
