Today we vote on outside linebackers as we continue to complie our 2012 Big Blue View Preseason All-NFC East Team.

Here are your nominees.

DeMarcus Ware, Cowboys -- A six-time Pro Bowler and four-time All Pro there is little argument about Ware's greatness. He had 19.5 sacks a season ago and has 99.5 in a seven-year career. Pro Football Focus gave him a +32.6 grade.

Michael Boley, Giants -- Emerged as a leader on the Giants' defense last season, taking over as the team's signal-caller. He had 94 tackles and one sack in what was easily the best season of his three years in New York. He had a +5.6 rating from PFF.

Brian Orakpo, Redskins -- A dynamic player and two-time Pro Bowler, orakpo had nine sacks, five passes defensed, three forced fumbles and 60 tackles a season ago. And did not make the Pro Bowl. He had a +23.2 PFF score. Orakpo is entering his fourth season.

Ryan Kerrigan, Redskins -- Had 7.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, four passes defensed and 64 tackles last season as a rookie. HIs PFF score was +2.4.

Mathias Kiwanuka, Giants -- Moved to outside linebacker last season for the second time in his career and played well while splitting time between linebacker and defensive end. Kiwanuka had 3.5 sacks, 85 tackles and an impressive PFF score of +13.2. He should be even better this season.
