RankPlayerPos.AgeTeamBase DefenseGary BeaudetteBill CerviSean KirbyBruce KimbroughAvgChangeSkinny
1Morgan BurnettSS25GB3-422111.5The 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 SmithFS25MIN4-311321.75He's a proven DB1 in Zimmer's defense, where he should have a productive contract year in 2015.
3Jonathan CyprienSS24JAX4-333263.5Second in tackles to only Burnett, Cyprien didn't miss a snap from week 3 onward in 2014. He's got 2 more years in JAX.
4Eric WeddleFS29SD3-485455.5Weddle's been a consistent volume tackler for years and should continue for 3 more years in SD.
5Reshad JonesSS26MIA4-346585.75Signed through 2017, he was a clear DB1 post-suspension. 3 contract years remain in MIA.
6Barry ChurchSS26DALTampa 268746.25For the past 2 years, Church has benefited from a battered front 7. Still, he's been productive and consistent.
7Tyvon BranchSS28OAK4-313156710.2511Another foot injury ended the 2014 season for one of the most consistent high end DBs. He'll be 28 next year with 3 contract years left.
8Antoine BetheaSS30SF3-4151181211.53Surprisingly high tackle opportunities in SF made Bethea a DB1 in SF. He'll be 31 with 3 contract years remaining.
9Earl ThomasFS25SEA4-354132612Thomas is a steady option, but has limited upside in SEA, posting only 2 week with double digit tackles. 4 contract years remaining.
10Deone BucannonSS22ARI3-41410111312Assisting heavily in run defense as a rookie, his fantasy points per snap are impressive, but he needs a bigger role in 2015 to be an elite option.
11Kam ChancellorSS26SEA4-31012141613-3Chancellor's a high floor player by tackle volume, but has limited weekly upside in SEA, where he has 3 contract years remaining.
12Mark BarronSS25STL4-377231813.75-3An undeniable physical talent, he didn't land a big role after being traded to STL. He should get a bigger role in his 2015 contract year.
13Donte WhitnerSS29CLE3-41216161514.75He was a reliable, but low ceiling, option in his first year in CLE. Turns 30 this offseason with 3 contract years remaining.
14Rashad JohnsonSS28ARI3-4192219315.75Johnson's proven he can be an efficient every-down every-down SS, but it's unclear how this secondary will look in 2015.
15Kenny VaccaroSS23NO3-499262216.5-8After a productive rookie year, Vaccaro struggled and was eventually benched. He could gain a starting gig back, but needs to be watched this offseason.
16Hasean Clinton-DixFS22GB3-42514171116.75The talented rookie FS quickly gained an every-down role, but flashed some very low floors, especially late in the season.
17Michael GriffinFS29TEN3-4212321918.5Griffin was an undoubtable DB1 in 2014, but a returning Pollard and questionable real-life play create a murky 2015.
18TJ McDonaldFS23STL4-32228121719.759McDonald's held an every-down job and played well for stretches after the arrival of Mark Barron. It's likely STL wants him to succeed.
19Bernard PollardSS30TEN3-4241393620.5-3As consistent as they come at DB, a 30-yr-old Pollard will attempt to return from Achilles injury for a 2015 contract year.
20Robert BlantonSS25MIN4-3373110821.5Trailing far behind Harrison Smith in name recognition, Blanton lead the MIN secondary in tackles, despite missing some time.
21TJ WardSS28DEN4-31617223221.75-4Ward's 2014 performance was a marked improvement over DEN's DB play in 2013, but the system only allowed him to produce DB3 #s.
22Ryan MundySS29CHI4-32335201022By staying healthy, Mundy was a borderline DB1 in 2014. He'll turn 30 and has 1 contract year remaining, but could move this off-season.
23Tyrann MathieuFS22ARI3-41120293523.75-4After MCL/ACL repair, he never became an every down player before needing thumb surgery. He'll try to reclaim a productive role in 2015.
24James IhedigboSS31DET4-33324272126.25Numerous injuries and low-floor performances hindered an otherwise impressive 2014 for the 31-year-old. He should be productive back in DET in 2015 if he can stay healthy.
25Antrel RolleFS32NYG4-31719304026.5-5After an up-and-down contract year, the 32-year-old should find interest in free agency.
26William MooreSS29ATL3-43027153827.53He'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
27Reggie NelsonFS31CIN4-32829282627.75Cincy's 31-year-old FS was a borderline DB1 in 2014, but could see a decline if the LBs are healthier in 2015.
28Calvin PryorSS22NYJ3-41832254630.25He played well for a rookie, but wasn't an every-down player most weeks and will enter a new scheme in 2014.
29Charles WoodsonSS38OAK4-331551820317The 38-year-old was a top 3 DB in most scoring formats and states he plans to play one more year.
30DJ SwearingerFS23HOU3-42625245532.5Mediocre tackle numbers and meager big plays limited the upside for HOU's young SS in 2014.
31Malcolm JenkinsFS27PHI3-42033334532.75-33 INTs in his first 3 weeks fo 2014 padded his stats and masked some very low floor weeks.
32Jairus ByrdFS28NO3-43434432734.5-6A torn lateral meniscus ended Byrd's 1st of 6 seasons with NO, where he was an every down player, averaging 5 TKLs/game.
33Mike AdamsFS33IND3-44440391935.5The soon-to-be 34-yr-old wasn't consistent on his 1 yr deal with IND, but produced some high tackle weeks.
34Ron ParkerSS27KC3-430371436.5In Berry's absence, Parker was a top 15 option at SS, but this will be a difficult secondary to guage this off-season.
35Dashon GoldsonFS30TBTampa 23246314137.5The Bucs have 3 years left to get their money out of 30-yr-old Goldson. Lovie's Tampa-2 might not be Safety-friendly for IDP.
36LaRon LandrySS30IND3-43634365239.5Landry never regained an every-down role after his PED ban. His run-stopping play style is IDP-friendly if he regains a bigger role.
37Kyle FullerCB22CHI4-32727357140Fuller's started hot, but faded down the stretch from both IDP and NFL perspectives. Chicago's produced many productive CBs for IDP purposes.
38Alterraun VernerCB26TBTampa 25544342940.5Lovie's Tampa-2 defense has made Verner one of the more consistent CB options.
39Prince AmukamaraCB25NYG4-34947442340.75He's been an increasingly consistent option at CB, but suffered a torn Biceps and will return for a 2015 contract year.
40Dawan LandrySS32NYJ3-44848324743.75Landry graded out positively all year long, but it only translated to moderate IDP success. The Jets secondary will face many variables this offseason.
41Brock VereenFS22CHI4-33932417045.5Vereen failed to amaze in his rookie year amongst a very weak secondary, but did claim an every-down role in the final 3 games.
42Jonathan JosephCB30HOU3-46346502445.75Joseph's still one of the better CBs to own in IDP, but trended down over the 2nd half of the 2014 season.
43Kemal IshmaelSS23ATL3-442533745.75The 2013 7th round pick produced nicely when William Moore was sidelined. His 2015 outlook isn't clear, but FS Lowery could leave in free agency, clearing a role.
44Da'Norris SearcySS26BUF4-341434946Searcy's run-defense specialty is good for IDP, but he needs to land an every-down role in free agency to be IDP-relevant.
45Glover QuinFS28DET4-35245404846.25By staying healthy, Quin finished as a DB3, despite a relatively low ceiling. 3 contract years remain.
46Kendrick LewisFS26HOU3-429476147A free agent after starting hot, but consistently producing meager tackle counts over the final 10 games of 2014.
47E.J. GainesCB22STL4-3542547The CB performed well in his rookie year.
48Mike MitchellFS27PIT3-438337248.5Mitchell stayed healthy, but had non-existent upside in PIT, where a Polamalu retirement could change the landscape during Mitchell's 4 remainign contract years.
49DeAngelo HallCB31WAS3-45841495049.54One of the most consistent CBs for IDP purposes, Hall missed most of 2014, but has 3 contract years remaining in WAS.
50Eric ReidFS23SF3-4534254504During a rough 2014, Reid only exceeded 4 combined tackles twice.
51Terrence BrooksFS23BAL3-4353950.25The rookie struggled to get invovled and landed on IR with a PCL injury. Weak play by BAL starters could lead to an opportunity.
52Eric BerrySS26KC3-42850.5-15Berry's left the team to seek treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma. He's been a DB1, but has bigger battles to fight for now.
53Roman HarperSS32CAR4-343495950.554 INTs saved an otherwise disappointing 2014 stat line for the 32-yr-old, who only has 1 year of guaranteed $ left.
54Bradley McDougaldFS24TBTampa 23051
55Stevie BrownSS27NYG4-347384551.55He lost his job in NY, but he's a talented player seeing some increased reps behind aging starters.
56Husain AbdullahSS29KC3-445444251.75An every-down FS for most of the year, it's easy to imagine KC gives him a lot of work in his 2015 contract year.
57Rahim MooreFS24DEN4-3514363524The DEN secondary just hasn't proven useful for IDPers in recent years. 2 TKLs/week won't cut it.
58Louis DelmasFS27MIA4-35954386052.75An every down player next to Rashad Jones, Delmas is a versatile player who will be a free agent this off-season.
59Major WrightSS26TBTampa 250465153-3Wright had some success reuniting with Lovie after Barron's departure, but is a free agent with a very uncertain 2015.
60Dez SouthwardFS24ATL3-4404553Southward's a smart, big, fast safety who saw limited action as a rookie and has some depth chart climbing to do.
61Leodis McKelvinCB29BUF4-33953.25The talented corner's 2014 ended prematurely with a fractured ankle. He has 2 contract years left and turns 30 in Sept.
62Shamarko ThomasSS23PIT3-446526754Thomas' 2014 was non-existent IDP-wise. He may need to more than a Polamalu exit to become relevant in his 2 contract years.
63Matt ElamSS23BAL3-4426255A 2014 breakout candidate, Elam flopped in all categories. His role is minimal in BAL.
64Aaron WilliamsFS24BUF4-3605455.75-14Not an every down player, the weekly floor was very low for Williams in 2014.
65George IlokaSS24CIN4-35749477356.5Iloka is a young every-down SS, who helped the Bengals more than IDP owners in 2014.
66J.J. WilcoxSS23DALTampa 25256.5Decent tackle opportunities were present in 2014, but he wasn't able to take advantage of them.
67Patrick ChungFS27NE3-45356.75Patrick Chung was the NE DB to own in 2014. Unfortnuately, that's not saying much.
68Tony JeffersonSS22ARI3-4645557Jefferson will struggle to get relevant snaps behind Johnson, Buccannon and Mathieu in his 2015 contract year.
69Lemarcus JoynerFS24STL4-3505357.5The arrival of Barron certainly doesn't bode well for a sophomore breakout by Joyner.
70Shawn WilliamsSS23CIN4-356566857.75Williams would need an injury to Nelson or Iloka for IDP relevance, and even then it's not a slam dunk.
71Chris ConteFS25CHI4-3626458.75-5Conte was a starter in name, but struggled with numerous injuries in 2014 and enters free agency.
72Devin McCourtyFS27NE3-4566559.25He's a great safety, but it just hasn't translated to great IDP production.
73Troy PolamaluSS33PIT3-461576959.5-3Maybe 2 years left in the tank? His floor and ceiling were less than ideal in 2014.
74Jason McCourtyCB27TEN3-44861.75TEN has made some productive CBs and McCourty was one of them in 2014.
75Nate AllenFS27PHI3-47462He fended off Wolff for a 2014 role, and was a fairly consistent tackler.
76Charles TillmanCB33CHI4-37562.25Tillman's been one of the best IDP CBs, but finished his 2014 campaign and will likely be with a new team for his 34-yr-old season.
