Rams all-decade team: Defensive tackle

The St. Louis Rams are closing the decade a little differently than they started it. From the highest-flying offense the NFL has ever seen to a team struggling through a one-win season. It's been an up and down decade for the Rams, and there's been lots to remember along the way. Let's look back and fill out our roster cards for the decade's best players: The Rams All Decade team.

Starting with the 2000 season and running through the current one, we'll go position by position and get our All Decade starting lineup. Today, we'll start with what might be one of those positions that won't be as obvious as some of the others, quarterback for instance, and jump in with the defensive tackles. 

I think a lot of us would like to see D'Marco Farr on this list, but the 2000 season was his last in the league and it was a rough one since he started just  games as Jeff Zgonina replaced him in the lineup. The later half of the decade doesn't have much to offer at the DT position, unless you were making a list of less-than-memorable DTs (better revisit the ten worst picks of the decade for some of those names). I'm only including players who started at least one season during the decade. The candidates, listed with the dates of the tenure during the decade with the Rams and stats from those days, are:

Jeff Zgonina: 2000-2001, 6 sacks, 91 tackles, 22 assists.

Ray Agnew: 2000, 4 sacks, 24 tackles, 8 assists

Brian Young: 2000-2003, 8.5 sacks, 94 tackles, 26 assists

Damione Lewis: 2001-2005, 10.5 sacks, 78 tackles, 27 assists

Ryan Pickett: 2001-2005, 6 sacks, 176 tackles, 63 assists

La'Roi Glover: 2006-2008, 12 sacks, 87 tackles, 27 assists

Adam Carriker: 2007-2008, 2 sacks, 43 tackles, 10 assists

Clifton Ryan: 2007-2009, 3 sacks, 75 tackles, 21 assists

Ok, vote for your top Rams DT of the decade. We'll take the first and second place vote getters for the All Decade team.
