Jake Long, LT, Miami Dolphins and D’Brickashaw Ferguson, LT, New York Jets PFF Rating: +4.4 (Long) and +4.5 (Ferguson) PFF Conference Ranking: 13th and 12th Analysis: Along with Joe Thomas, Long and Ferguson have formed a trio of excellence at the top of the left tackle tree over the past four years – but that doesn’t mean they deserve automatic selection to the Pro Bowl every year, especially when others are more deserving. Ignoring for a second the total discrimination against right tackles, Long (who started the season off looking less than 100%) and Ferguson have been outplayed by guys like Duane Brown, Andrew Whitworth and Branden Albert. Decent years for both men but nowhere near their best, and nowhere near the best. Their reputation may grow with another Pro Bowl spot, but it’s at the expense of peers who have truly earned it this year. Key Fact: While Long and Ferguson have given up a combined 13 sacks, Duane Brown hasn’t given up any.
