    Off the top of my head I'd say...

    Beto (Bordeaux)
    Beye (Marseille)
    Bolf (Auxerre)
    Cetto (Nantes)
    Cris (Lyon)
    Cacapa (Lyon)
    Dehu (Marseille)
    Givet (Monaco)
    Meite (Marseille)
    Mensah (Rennes) *
    Squillaci (Monaco)
    Talvaridis (Lille)
    Traore (Nice)
    Yepes (PSG)

    * Technically he plays on the right as well.

    I don't see Cacapa as the second central defender in L1. I'd put him after Tavlaridis or Mensah.

    Except that, i agree with your ranking.
