1JJ WattDE26HOU3-41111Watt is the best DE in the game, your team has a significant weekly advantage if you roster him
2Jason Pierre-PaulDE26NYG4-32225JPP was a stud in 2014 and will have to prove his consistency and health under the franchise tag in 2015.
3Robert QuinnDE24STL4-34532The 2013 sack leader didn't record a sack until week 7 but continually pressured the QB and finished strong.
4Chandler JonesDE25NE3-45453Impressive tackle volumes are a result of NE's dynamic defensive front, including some OLB usage.
5Calais CampbellDE26ARI3-43348On the growing trend of elite IDP 3-4 DEs, Campbell posts high tackles for a DE, but has a new DC in 2015.
6Everson GriffenDE27MIN4-36677Griffen broke out in 2014 and should return to a similar role in Zimmer's 2nd year as head coach.
7Carlos DunlapDE26CIN4-378849 sacks complimented impressive tackle counts in 2014. The return of Michael Johnson could take away some pressure opportunities.
8Ezekiel AnsahDE25DET4-3107136On limited snaps, Ansah hit both double digit sacks and 40+ tackles. Elite potential is there if he played 90% snaps.
9Greg HardyDE26DALTampa 29106114The elite talent will try to keep clean in DAL, but could miss 2015 time regardless.
10Muhammad WilkersonDE25NYJ3-4811915Wilkerson should play the Calais Campbell role in Todd Bowles 3-4.
11Rob NinkovichDE31NE3-412131110Similar to Chandler Jones, NE's 3-4 allows Ninkovich to rack up tackles, partially as an OLB.
12Fletcher CoxDE24PHI3-41191414Cox is a solid tackle producer but needs to add sacks to enter the truly elite tiers.
13Cameron JordanDE25NO3-415121517-3Jordan relies on sacks while posting modest tackle volumes, limiting his upside and consistency.
14Cameron WakeDE33MIA4-3181617912 sacks and positive PFF grades didn't make up for meager tackles in 2014, as he was a DE2 in most formats.
15Olivier VernonDE24MIA4-316151916Although not dreadful, Vernon's season was disappointing after his 2013 breakout.
16Charles JohnsonDE28CAR4-3211720134A decent finish didn't make up for a dreadful start in 2014, but 72 QB hurries/hits hint at what could have been.
17Sheldon RichardsonDE24NYJ3-417191819Richardson had a great early career under Ryan. We'll see how things look Todd Bowles.
18Corey LiugetDE25SD3-4141829184Boasting great tackle volumes and moderate sacks, Liugets a great value in tackle-heavy scoring.
19Jurrell CaseyDE25TEN3-413142429Elite tackle #s and 7 sacks made Casey a DE1 and a top 6 play in tackle heavy scoring.
20Cameron HeywardDE25PIT3-4202327236Heyward was a very consistent, low ceiling DE2-3 in a starting role, which shouldn't change much in 2015.
21Michael JohnsonDE28CIN4-3242821203Johnson returns to the city, where he originally had success under Zimmer. Will there still be opportunities for IDP success?
22Gerald McCoyDT27TBTampa 219203125-5McCoy signed a 100 million dollar contract and has excelled in the Bucs Tampa-2 when healthy.
23DeMontre MooreDE22NYG4-3183016334Moore has some depth chart climbing to do, but has an opportunity to break out in 2015 after Kiwanuka's departure.
24Chris LongDE30STL4-323222826-3Playing too little and too late in 2014, we know Long should play better next year.
25Mario WilliamsDE30BUF3-435431212-7The switch to a 3-4 is a major red flag, as Williams will likely begin 2015 as a 31-yr-old OLB.
26Aaron DonaldDT23STL4-3222528287He set the standard for rookie DTs in 2014 and could push to be top 3 at the position.
27Jerry HughesDE26BUF3-429402621-4Hughes is huge risk for becoming an OLB in Rex Ryan's 3-4.
28Cornellius CarradineDE26SF3-42829352418A new coaching staff and retired Justin Smith could help Carradine finally breakout.
29Michael BennettDE29SEA4-326244227Increased snaps and positive real-life grades didn't translate to great IDP #s, as Bennett remained an DE3 in SEA.
30Demarcus WareDE32DEN3-438422322-5Similar to Mario Williams, changing schemes will likely make Ware an aging OLB.
31Demarcus LawrenceDE23DALTampa 2272147348A fractured foot ruined his rookie opportunity in Dallas. Greg Hardy's arrival could bury his sophomore year.
32Kroy BiermanDE29ATL4-32932223Bierman was the DL tackle leader in 2014, but enters a new scheme with many new faces in 2015.
33Kyle WilliamsDT31BUF3-425263331-year-old Williams' role will change with the arrival of Rex Ryan. Should remain productive, but may be reclassified to DE.
34Jared AllenDE32CHI3-4411037-3Joining Mario Williams and Demarcus Ware, Allen could become an aging OLB in CHI's new DEF in 2015.
35Sen'Derrick MarksDT28JAX4-342313038-535 tackles and 9 sacks were enough for a top 6 finish among DTs.
36Cedric ThorntonDE26PHI3-4323636432 consecutive years with only 1 sack are discouraging, but he remains a high floor option thanks to tackles.
37Ndamukong SuhDT28MIA4-3313349355A great option among DT's specifically, the NT will wreak havoc in a new uniform in 2015.
38Geno AtkinsDT27CIN4-330276332Hopefully Atkins' slow 2014 was health related, but he's been replaced by Gerald McCoy as the best DT.
39Marcell DareusDT25BUF3-445473230-10Dareus will likely be Rex Ryan's NT, which has not been fruitful for IDP in recent years.
40Datone JonesDE24GB3-4363740414Jones was given a tiny role in 2014, playing drastically <50% snaps.
41Desmond BryantDE29CLE3-4333437Bryant was the DL to own in CLE in 2014. Unfortunately, that wasn't saying much.
42Justin TuckDE32OAK4-337384839-5It looks like Tuck's production in 2013 was contract driven as he was a DE3 in 2014.
43Kerry WynnDE24NYG4-345189The young talent Wynn could land a bigger role in 2015, but has plenty of competition on the depth chart.
44Lamarr HoustonDE27CHI3-4343557426After getting a big contract, Houston was underwhelming in 2014 and needs to find a fit in Fangio's 3-4.
45Willie YoungDE29CHI3-449464331-11Youngs breakout was brief and is likely over, as he'll be an OLB in Fangio's 3-4.
46Sharrif FloydDT22MIN4-339493846Playing for Mike Zimmer, Floyd has top 5 DT potential
47Jason HatcherDE32WAS3-4404444-7Hatcher's #s were underwhelming in a his first year as a 3-4 DE. He's got 3 years left on his contract.
48Dion JordanDE25MIA4-343415545Jordan was productive per snap, but had too small of a role to assess. He could be converted to LB.
49Akiem HicksDE25NO3-444396440-6Hicks' 2 sacks wasn't a mistake, as he only posted 25 hits/hurries.
50Kony EalyDE23CAR4-3485236Ealy had a rough rookie year, but is a potential 2015 breakout player depending on Hardy situation.
51Cliff AvrilDE28SEA4-347484944-6Avrill will still be involved in Seattle's DE rotation, sacks should be there but hard to count on tackles.
52Clinton McDonaldDT28TBTampa 2384There's hope for the only Tampa DE who didn't disappoint last year, as Adrian Clayborn may be moving on.
53Jeremy MinceyDE31DALTampa 2416Dallas is desperate for help up front, but also gets a healthy Demarcus Lawrence back next year.
54Chis ClemonsDE33JAX4-350453Posting 4 weeks with 0 combined tackles in 2014, the floor was low for Clemmons.
55Wallace GilberryDE30CIN4-34650-4Johnson's return likely spells the end of significant snaps for Gilberry.
56Quinton DialDT24SF3-4487With Justin Smith winding down, there's room for SF's youth to climb the depth chart.
57Dontari PoeDT24KC3-451493
58Ryan DavisDE26JAX4-3538
59Mathias KiwanukaDE32NYG4-354Kiwi is subject to offseason movement and turns 32 before the 2015 season.
60Robert AyersDE29NYG4-3565
61Dee FordDE24KC3-4506148-6Ford will be buried on the depth chart for 1-2 yrs likely designated a LB.
62Brian RobisonDE31MIN4-358-8Zimmer's scheme clearly gave more tackle opportunities to Griffen in year 1.
63Margus HuntDE27CIN4-358Very raw, but physically gifted, 27-years-old is a bit old for a "project" buried on his own depth chart.
64Bennie LoganDT25PHI3-4594
65Justin SmithDT35RETIRED#N/A6035-years-old, Smith enters perhaps his final contract year in 2015 and could retire this offseason.
66Andre BranchDE25JAX4-36547-13Branch missed a lot of time in 2014 for injury and failed to earn a compelling role.
67Michael BrockersDT24STL4-363
68Ngata HalotiDT31BAL3-4663
69George SelvieDE28NYG4-367-7
70Adrian ClaybornDE26ATL4-368-3Clayborn was trending down in TB even before suffering a torn biceps. He'll look to restart in ATL.
71Ra'Shede HagemanDE24ATL4-350
