Chandler Jones is an elite talent.
Yesterday we talked about how he was the second best edge rusher in the NFL according to one poll done by ESPN.
Now, with Madden 21 rankings coming out another list has emerged of the best pass rushers in the NFL.
This means not just those that play 43 defensive end or 34 outside linebacker, but anyone who is asked to rush the passer consistently.
Jones found himself a bit lower but still in elite company.

Jones checks in as the seventh best pass rusher in the NFL, the third best edge rusher according to Madden 21.
The top six are an impressive cast:
- Aaron’s Donald
- J.J. Watt
- Khalil Mack
- Von Miller
- Fletcher Cox
- Cameron Jordan
Donald, Watt and Jordan are more interior guys than Jones, so the only two true edge guys above him are Mack and Miller.
The Cardinals had two of the top 10 at one point, as Calais Campbell checks in at the eighth spot.
Imagine if they could have kept that duo together.
What do you think of the overall top ten?
