I don't know that broken tackle #s prove that one player is harder to bring down than another. A player could be really difficult for a defender to bring down, yet the defender could still record the tackle after being dragged/pushed 5 yards down the field. For example:



Dez didn't break a tackle here, but clearly Shields had a difficult time getting him to the ground. He gained an extra 10 yards after Shields first made contact with him.

He had one against Darrelle Revis where he caught it and looked like a maniac after the catch. I can't seem to find it though.

Erick Decker, because he takes himself down. Razz

But seriously, Andre Johnson, Vincent Jackson, Brandon Marshall and Calvin Johnson would be good choices.

Golden Tate, the guy is very shifty and elusive. He's very strong as well, I haven't seen on play where more than one guy have to bring him down.

Which is...? Tate forced the most missed tackles this year and was 3rd last year

It wasn't against Revis, but I'm assuming you're talking about this?

He doesn't seem very good in this area to me. At least in comparison to the majority of others on the list.
Yeah DT is great after the catch, but guys like Dez and Marshall are better at breaking tackles.

Well you're wrong. His stiff arm is deadly, and led the NFL this year in yards after the catch. He is 6'3 and 230 lbs who is very difficult to bring down.

Very close between Tate and Dez for me.

Yards after catch and yards after contact are very very different matters.

Exactly.

I just don't see anything in his game that makes me feel that he is all that difficult to bring down (again, in comparison to the others).

This...

Hard to bring down is Marshall, Dez, and Tate.

Yards after contact is more important for RBs while Yards after catch is more important for WRs. The question the OP is asking is kind of like what WR has the best RB ability.
