NFL's All-Decade Defensive Team

ESPN.com's Mike Sando just wrote an article about the nfl's all decade defensive team.  Even though the 2000-2010 decade is not over yet (my 10 year HS reunion is right around the corner...yikes), he said that he has enough information to already make his judgements.  One of the picks may surprise you.  Its a Panther. 

 

Below is a list of the top 11 guys of the 21st century.  Well, so far at least. 

DE: Michael Strahan, N.Y. Giants,
DT: Warren Sapp, Tampa Bay/Oakland
DT: Kris Jenkins, Carolina/N.Y. Jets
DE: Jason Taylor, Miami/Washington
LB: Derrick Brooks, Tampa Bay
LB: Ray Lewis, Baltimore
LB: Brian Urlacher, Chicago
CB: Champ Bailey, Washington/Denver
CB: Troy Vincent: Phil./Mia./Buff./Wash.
S: Ed Reed, Baltimore
S: Troy Polamalu, Pittsburgh

So what do you think?  I was a little surprised that Jenks was up there considering his injuries.  Are you surprised by any of the players?  If so, which one(s)?
