He belongs with Mathis, Abraham, Hali, Houston, but not with Peppers, Allen or Johnson
Aldon Smith and Chris Long should be moved down from the "next level"
Um, 7 sacks, a safety, 1 PD and 5 FF for Dumervil.
On that "Next level" Jared Allen has the following:
7 sacks, 1 PD, 1 FF
9.5 sacks, 1 FF
7 sacks 1 FF
8.5 sacks, 2 PD, 5 FF
Really, on that "Next level" only CHarles Johnson is clearly ahead of Dumervil. Smith is having a hell of a year but Dumervil has caused 4 more fumbles than him while only having 2.5 fewer sacks. Everyone else, Dumervil has better numbers than.
edit: Keep in mind, this is for THIS year. Not career.
