1Morgan BurnettSS26GB3-4111121The tackle leader for DBs in 2014, he's got an enourmously high floor and 3 years left in GB. He could use more big plays.
2Harrison SmithFS26MIN4-3342212He's a proven DB1 in Zimmer's defense, where he should have a productive contract year in 2015.
3Jonathan CyprienSS24JAX4-3526334Second in 2014 tackles to only Burnett, Cyprien didn't miss a snap from week 3 onward in 2014. 2 contract yrs left.
4Reshad JonesSS27MIA4-3234554He was a clear DB1 post-suspension in 2014. 3 contract years remain in MIA.
5Eric WeddleFS30SD3-44554443Weddle's been a consistent volume tackler for years and should continue for a few more in SD.
6Barry ChurchSS27DALTampa 2768677For the past 2 years, Church has benefited from a battered front 7. Improvements to the DL may reduce that opportunity.
7Tyvon BranchSS28KC3-48877674KC is a sweet landing spot for the oft-injured in-the-box safety. Good chance to be a DB1 as long as Berry's absent.
8Deone BucannonSS22ARI3-4691710810Assisting heavily in run defense, his fantasy points per snap are impressive, but he needs more snaps to be an elite option.
9Antoine BetheaSS30SF3-4107121211104SFs front 7 is suddenly a mess and Bethea stands to be one of the main benificiaries.
10TJ McDonaldFS24STL4-3121010919124McDonald's played well ahead of Barron in 2014. It's likely STL wants him to succeed.
11Rashad JohnsonSS29ARI3-414193131413Johnson's proven he can be an efficient every-down every-down SS, but he's in a very crowded secondary.
12Kam ChancellorSS27SEA4-3111521111014Chancellor's a high floor player by tackle volume, but has limited weekly upside in SEA. 3 contract years remaining.
13Earl ThomasFS26SEA4-315182114915-8Thomas is a steady option, but has limited upside in SEA, posting only 2 weeks in 2014 with double digit tkls. 4 contract years remaining.
14Hasean Clinton-DixFS22GB3-41821162212183He quickly claimed an every-down FS role as a rookie, but flashed some very low floors, especially late in the season.
15Landon CollinsSS22NYG4-3171118251818Excellent in run defense with acceptable coverage skills, he enters a true void in NY.
16Donte WhitnerSS29CLE3-4131727211318He was a reliable, but low ceiling, option in his first year in CLE. Turns 30 this offseason with 3 contract years remaining.
17Robert BlantonSS25MIN4-325141432252020MIN failed to secure a replacement in FA or the draft, making Blanton a candidate for high tackle volumes at SS
18TJ WardSS28DEN3-4192318231620Ward's 2014 performance was a marked improvement over DEN's DB play in 2013, but the system only allowed him to produce DB3 #s.
19Calvin PryorSS22NYJ3-491346201721Not an every-down rookie, the release of Dawan Landry likely means a bigger role in 2015,
20William MooreSS29ATL4-31616382424226He's averaged >6 fantasy pts/game each of past 4 years, but couldn't stay healthy in 2014. He'll be 30 with 3 contract years remaining
21Charles WoodsonSS38OAK4-32120202929246The 38-year-old was a top 3 DB in most scoring formats and has resigned with OAK for 1 more year.
22James IhedigboSS31DET4-326221115452410Numerous injuries and low-floor performances hindered an otherwise impressive 2014 for the 31-year-old. He should be productive if he can stay healthy.
23Kenny VaccaroSS23NO3-4302635191525-3Vaccaro struggled and was even benched during his sophomore year. He could gain a starting gig back, but owners need a backup plan.
24Reggie NelsonFS31CIN4-3232726332825Cincy's one team where FS often out-tackles SS recently, allowing the 31-year-old Nelson to be a borderline DB1 in 2014.
25Michael GriffinFS30TEN3-4229162325-10Griffin was a DB1 in 2014, but questionable real-life play, a shoulder surgery, and arrival of DaNoris Searcy are all red flags.
26Mike AdamsFS34IND3-43933193452619The 34-yr-old was inconsistent in 2014, but produced some high tackle weeks.
27Mark BarronSS25STL4-3242431302023-20An undeniable physical talent, he didn't land a big role after being traded and may end up as a FS opposite McDonald.
28Da'Norris SearcySS26TEN3-420124918472914SS for TEN was a boon for Bernard Pollard and Searcy could recreate that success if he can prove competent in coverage.
29Tyrann MathieuFS22ARI3-4294022273030After MCL/ACL repair, he never became an every down player before needing thumb surgery. A 2015 rebound is clouded by a crowded secondary.
30Prince AmukamaraCB25NYG4-341392317333120He's been an increasingly consistent option at CB, but suffered a torn Biceps and will return for a 2015 contract year.
31Alterraun VernerCB26TBTampa 232282935363225Lovie's Tampa-2 defense has made Verner one of the more consistent CB options.
32Jairus ByrdFS28NO3-4342936263532A torn lateral meniscus ended Byrd's 1st yr of a 6yr contract in NO, where he was an every down player, averaging 5 TKLs/game.
33DJ SwearingerFS23HOU3-4282555363135-11Mediocre tackle numbers and meager big plays limited the upside for HOU's young SS in 2014.
34James SampleSJAX4-3403030522636-34He may be the best UL safety in 4-5 years. Solid hitter w/ good HT/WT. Not flashy but solid.
35Antrel RolleFS32CHI3-4273240453736Rolle figures to start SS, but could give way to the younger combination of Mundy/Vereen if he struggles.
36Trae WaynesCB22MIN4-332292738-34Almost unanimously the #1 CB, he'll likely start day 1.
37Jonathan JosephCB31HOU3-438462428563827Joseph's still one of the better CBs to own in IDP, but trended down over the 2nd half of the 2014 season.
38Malcolm JenkinsFS27PHI3-43749453134393 INTs in his first 3 weeks of 2014 padded his stats and masked some very low floor weeks.
39Dashon GoldsonFS30TBTampa 2354141513841-11The Bucs might not want to pay Goldson's fat salary for 3 more years. Also, Lovie's Tampa-2 might not be Safety-friendly for IDP.
40E.J. GainesCB23STL4-32547404315The CB performed well in his rookie year.
41Kyle FullerCB23CHI3-4464347394143-18After a decent rookie year, Chicago's iconic defensive scheme that produced many great IDP CBs is changing this offseason.
42Jalen CollinsCB22ATL4-353403245-36Collins will likely see snaps early.
43Kemal IshmaelSS24ATL4-337385747The 7th round pick produced nicely when Moore was sidelined, but he's more likely to play FS in 2015 if at all.
44Ron ParkerFS27KC3-4454852375547Parker will start FS opposite Branch, where it may be difficult to recreate 2014 production.
45Glover QuinFS29DET4-334485358498By staying healthy, Quin finished as a DB3, despite a relatively low ceiling. 3 contract years remain.
46Brock VereenFS22CHI3-4333170545949-6Vereen failed to amaze in his rookie year, but did claim an every-down role in the final 3 games. Rolle's arrival doesn't help.
47Shamarko ThomasSS24PIT3-43767554351Thomas' 2014 was non-existent IDP-wise. He may need to more than a Polamalu exit to become relevant in his 2 contract years.
48Ryan MundySS30CHI3-44261462249-17By staying healthy, Mundy was a borderline DB1 in 2014, but Rolle's arrival creates a messy picture in 2015.
49Leodis McKelvinCB29BUF3-42850755120The talented corner's 2014 ended prematurely with a fractured ankle. He has 2 contract years left and turns 30 in Sept.
50Marcus PetersCB22KC3-447604651-36Peter will likely start day 1 in KC, but has significant off-field baggage.
51Damarious RandallFS22GB3-455643952-42GB is a curious fit for the center fielder, who may be relegated to slot CB duties.
52Louis DelmasFS28MIA4-34850604164538An every down player next to Rashad Jones, Delmas is versatile veteran with limited upside.
53Bernard PollardSS30FA47482157-34After requesting release from the Titans, the 30 yr old SS has found a cold free agency coming off an Achilles injury.
54J.J. WilcoxSS24DALTampa 2445256615316Decent tackle opportunities were present in 2014, but he wasn't able to take advantage of them.
55George IlokaSS24CIN4-34935734270543Iloka is a young every-down SS, who helped the Bengals more than IDP owners in 2014.
56Devin McCourtyFS27NE3-46543675517He's a great safety, but it just hasn't translated to great IDP production.
57Husain AbdullahSS29KC3-444585156-11An every-down FS for most of 2014, he'll have to compete for snaps in his 2015 contract year
58Major WrightSS26TBTampa 23851677456Returning to Lovie's lineup with Conte makes both players tenuous IDP investments.
59Aaron WilliamsFS25BUF3-454596656Not an every down player, the weekly floor was very low for Williams in 2014.
60DeAngelo HallCB31WAS3-4504550686956A potential move to safety could increase Hall's overall IDP production, but decimates his value in CB-required leagues.
61Kendrick LewisFS26FA574857-36A free agent after starting hot, but consistently producing meager tackle counts over the final 10 games of 2014.
62Mike MitchellFS27PIT3-472654457-23Mitchell stayed healthy, but had non-existent upside in PIT, where a Polamalu retirement could change the landscape during Mitchell's 4 remainign contract years.
63Jason McCourtyCB27TEN3-436445711TEN has made some productive CBs and McCourty was one of them in 2014.
64Eric ReidFS23SF3-454696057-10During a rough 2014, Reid only exceeded 4 combined tackles twice and carries multiple concussions.
65Matt ElamSS23BAL3-4626162576A 2014 breakout candidate, Elam flopped in all categories. His role is minimal in BAL.
66Roman HarperSS32CAR4-359626558-224 INTs saved an otherwise disappointing 2014 stat line for the 32-yr-old, who only has 1 year of guaranteed $ left.
67LaRon LandrySS30FA42705459-3130 yrs old and twice suspended for PEDs, the Colts cut ties and an every-down role is seeming extremely far fetched.
68Kevin JohnsonCB22HOU3-4664959-53Johnson is a relatively physical corner who is at his best in man coverage.
69Eric BerrySS26KC3-44259-3Berry's left the team to seek treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma. He's been a DB1, but has bigger battles to fight for now.
70Byron JonesCB22DALTampa 236696359-57The athlete will combine the rookie CB rule with a Tampa-2 scheme, making him a sneaky pick in CB-required leagues.
71Bradley McDougaldFS24TBTampa 24961-4McDougald would need to fend off Wright, Jennings, and Conte for relevant snaps.
