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 SmithFS26MIN4-3224212He's a proven DB1 in Zimmer's defense, where he should have a productive contract year in 2015.
3Jonathan CyprienSS24JAX4-3332633Second 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.
4Reshad JonesSS27MIA4-3443854Signed through 2017, he was a clear DB1 post-suspension. 3 contract years remain in MIA.
5Earl ThomasFS25SEA4-352210169117Thomas is a steady option, but has limited upside in SEA, posting only 2 week with double digit tackles. 4 contract years remaining.
6Barry ChurchSS27DALTampa 2686475For the past 2 years, Church has benefited from a battered front 7. Still, he's been productive and consistent.
7Mark BarronSS25STL4-37132426191410An 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.
8Eric WeddleFS30SD3-4855545-3Weddle's been a consistent volume tackler for years and should continue for 3 more years in SD.
9Deone BucannonSS22ARI3-491081388Assisting heavily in run defense, his fantasy points per snap are impressive, but he needs more snaps to be an elite option.
10Rashad JohnsonSS29ARI3-4106193148Johnson's proven he can be an efficient every-down every-down SS, but it's unclear how this secondary will look in 2015.
11Tyvon BranchSS28FA11711767-4The has been an elite in-the-box S, but has been released to FA following yet another season-ending injury.
12Kam ChancellorSS26SEA4-3121513111010Chancellor's a high floor player by tackle volume, but has limited weekly upside in SEA, where he has 3 contract years remaining.
13Antoine BetheaSS30SF3-41311712119-5Surprisingly high tackle opportunities in SF made Bethea a DB1 in SF. He'll be 31 with 3 contract years remaining.
14TJ McDonaldFS24STL4-314229101811McDonald'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.
15Michael GriffinFS30TEN3-415232292214Griffin was a DB1 in 2014, but questionable real-life play, returning Pollard, and shoulder labrum surgery make him a risk to be cut.
16Donte WhitnerSS29CLE3-4161616151313-3He was a reliable, but low ceiling, option in his first year in CLE. Turns 30 this offseason with 3 contract years remaining.
17Hasean Clinton-DixFS22GB3-417141781211The talented rookie FS quickly gained an every-down role, but flashed some very low floors, especially late in the season.
18TJ WardSS28DEN3-4182323181616Ward's 2014 performance was a marked improvement over DEN's DB play in 2013, but the system only allowed him to produce DB3 #s.
19Bernard PollardSS30TEN3-4191214362016As consistent as they come at DB, a 30-yr-old Pollard will attempt to return from Achilles injury for a 2015 contract year.
20Kenny VaccaroSS23NO3-420926221515-4After a productive rookie year, Vaccaro struggled and was eventually benched. He could gain a starting gig back, but needs to be watched this offseason.
21Calvin PryorSS22NYJ3-4213212461722Not an every-down rookie, the release of Dawan Landry likely means a bigger role in 2015,
22DJ SwearingerFS23HOU3-42225255528258Mediocre tackle numbers and meager big plays limited the upside for HOU's young SS in 2014.
23Kyle FullerCB23CHI3-4233547713635Fuller's started hot, but faded down the stretch from both IDP and NFL perspectives. Chicago's produced many productive CBs for IDP purposes.
24Reggie NelsonFS31CIN4-32429292625224Cincy's 31-year-old FS was a borderline DB1 in 2014, but could see a decline if the LBs are healthier in 2015.
25Kendrick LewisFS26HOU3-42547614237A free agent after starting hot, but consistently producing meager tackle counts over the final 10 games of 2014.
26William MooreSS29ATL4-3261715382319-3He'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
27Charles WoodsonSS38OAK4-3272418202618-5The 38-year-old was a top 3 DB in most scoring formats and has resigned with OAK for 1 more year.
28Dashon GoldsonFS30TBTampa 22846404134318The 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.
29Ron ParkerSS27FA293044144823In Berry's absence, Parker was a top 15 option at SS, but he's a free agent and the KC secondary will be difficult to guage this offseason.
30Tyrann MathieuFS22ARI3-4303130352725-5After MCL/ACL repair, he never became an every down player before needing thumb surgery. He'll try to reclaim a productive role in 2015.
31Ryan MundySS30CHI3-4312720322122By 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.
32James IhedigboSS31DET4-3322827214022Numerous 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.
33Jairus ByrdFS28NO3-4333442273127A torn lateral meniscus ended Byrd's 1st of 6 seasons with NO, where he was an every down player, averaging 5 TKLs/game.
34Antrel RolleFS32FA341931403325-8After an up-and-down contract year, the 32-year-old should find interest in free agency.
35Terrence BrooksFS24BAL3-4353940The rookie struggled to get invovled and landed on IR with a PCL injury. Weak play by BAL starters could lead to an opportunity.
36LaRon LandrySS30FA363435524731Landry never regained an every-down role after his PED ban. His run-stopping play style is IDP-friendly if he regains a bigger role.
37Robert BlantonSS25MIN4-3372021222420If Blanton returns to start in MIN, he'll rack up tackles at SS. He's a candidate for replacement, though.
38Malcolm JenkinsFS27PHI3-4383334453030-73 INTs in his first 3 weeks fo 2014 padded his stats and masked some very low floor weeks.
39Mike MitchellFS27PIT3-43972394422Mitchell stayed healthy, but had non-existent upside in PIT, where a Polamalu retirement could change the landscape during Mitchell's 4 remainign contract years.
40Brock VereenFS22CHI3-4404128705236Vereen failed to amaze in his rookie year, but did claim an every-down role in the final 3 games. Conte's departure creates a need.
41Dez SouthwardFS24ATL4-3414543Southward's a smart, big, fast safety who saw limited action as a rookie and has some depth chart climbing to do.
42Da'Norris SearcySS26FA424336494134Searcy's run-defense specialty is good for IDP, but he needs to land an every-down role in free agency to be IDP-relevant.
43Kemal IshmaelSS23ATL4-34353375037The 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.
44Roman HarperSS32CAR4-344595842114 INTs saved an otherwise disappointing 2014 stat line for the 32-yr-old, who only has 1 year of guaranteed $ left.
45Mike AdamsFS34FA453238194627The soon-to-be 34-yr-old wasn't consistent on his 1 yr deal with IND, but produced some high tackle weeks.
46Husain AbdullahSS29KC3-44644414441An 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.
47Shamarko ThomasSS24PIT3-4475267384313Thomas' 2014 was non-existent IDP-wise. He may need to more than a Polamalu exit to become relevant in his 2 contract years.
48Stevie BrownSS27FA483845438He lost his job in NY, but he's a talented player seeing some increased reps behind aging starters.
49Dawan LandrySS32FA494832475635-9Landry graded out positively all year long, but it only translated to moderate IDP success. He's a recent FA.
50Prince AmukamaraCB25NYG4-3504743232933He's been an increasingly consistent option at CB, but suffered a torn Biceps and will return for a 2015 contract year.
51Lemarcus JoynerFS24STL4-351536946The arrival of Barron certainly doesn't bode well for a sophomore breakout by Joyner.
52Rahim MooreFS25FA52634510The DEN secondary just hasn't proven useful for IDPs in recent years. 2 TKLs/week won't cut it.
53Glover QuinFS29DET4-3534539485137-9By staying healthy, Quin finished as a DB3, despite a relatively low ceiling. 3 contract years remain.
54Eric ReidFS23SF3-45442545340-4During a rough 2014, Reid only exceeded 4 combined tackles twice.
55E.J. GainesCB23STL4-355253538The CB performed well in his rookie year.
56Alterraun VernerCB26TBTampa 2564433293232Lovie's Tampa-2 defense has made Verner one of the more consistent CB options.
57Shawn WilliamsSS23CIN4-35756684613Williams would need an injury to Nelson or Iloka for IDP relevance, and even then it's not a slam dunk.
58George IlokaSS24CIN4-3584946736345Iloka is a young every-down SS, who helped the Bengals more than IDP owners in 2014.
59DeAngelo HallCB31WAS3-4594149506240-10One of the most consistent CBs for IDP purposes, Hall missed most of 2014, but has 3 contract years remaining in WAS.
60Louis DelmasFS27MIA4-3603337605738An every down player next to Rashad Jones, Delmas is a versatile player who will be a free agent this off-season.
61Aaron WilliamsFS24BUF3-461545945Not an every down player, the weekly floor was very low for Williams in 2014.
62Troy PolamaluSS33PIT3-46257694811Maybe 2 years left in the tank? His floor and ceiling were less than ideal in 2014.
63Chris ConteFS26FA6364478Conte was a starter in name, but struggled with numerous injuries in 2014 and enters free agency.
64Jonathan JosephCB30HOU3-4644650244937Joseph's still one of the better CBs to own in IDP, but trended down over the 2nd half of the 2014 season.
65Tony JeffersonSS23ARI3-465556446Jefferson will struggle to get relevant snaps behind Johnson, Buccannon and Mathieu in his 2015 contract year.
66Eric BerrySS26KC3-4283741-14Berry's left the team to seek treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma. He's been a DB1, but has bigger battles to fight for now.
67Bradley McDougaldFS24TBTampa 23041
68Major WrightSS26FA5045516742-11Wright had some success reuniting with Lovie after Barron's departure, but is a free agent with a very uncertain 2015.
69Leodis McKelvinCB29BUF3-4396843The talented corner's 2014 ended prematurely with a fractured ankle. He has 2 contract years left and turns 30 in Sept.
70J.J. WilcoxSS24DALTampa 248525445Decent tackle opportunities were present in 2014, but he wasn't able to take advantage of them.
71Matt ElamSS23BAL3-449625546-5A 2014 breakout candidate, Elam flopped in all categories. His role is minimal in BAL.
72Patrick ChungFS27FA5346Patrick Chung was the NE DB to own in 2014. Unfortnuately, that's not saying much and he's a free agent.
73Devin McCourtyFS27FA56656048He's a great safety, but it just hasn't translated to great IDP production.
74Jason McCourtyCB27TEN3-45449TEN has made some productive CBs and McCourty was one of them in 2014.
75Charles TillmanCB34FA56756650Tillman'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.
