Ranking the Super Bowl rosters is never easy, especially when it comes to selecting the No. 1 player.

Last year, it wasn’t difficult to put Peyton Manning right at the top. This year, there could be a great debate between Ben Roethlisberger and Aaron Rodgers as the better quarterback. And it could be argued that they don’t even belong in the No. 1 and No. 2 spots overall with the wealth of defensive talent in this game.

This matchup is loaded with star power and I think it is pretty clear that these are the two top defenses in football. Of course, this list will create a stir, and feel free to blast me for it. But below, I will justify why I have every player where I do — although those guys at the caboose of this train are awfully difficult to really get a bead on considering how little they have played. My apologies to them and their families.
