1JJ WattDE26HOU3-411111Watt is the best DE in the game, your team has a significant weekly advantage if you roster him
2Jason Pierre-PaulDE26NYG4-322235JPP was a stud in 2014 and will have to prove his consistency and health under the franchise tag in 2015.
3Robert QuinnDE25STL4-343322The 2013 sack leader didn't record a 2014 sack until week 7 but continually pressured the QB and finished strong.
4Chandler JonesDE25NE3-457543Impressive tackle volumes are a result of NE's dynamic defensive front, including some OLB usage.
5Calais CampbellDE26ARI3-435478On the growing trend of stud IDP 3-4 DEs, Campbell posts high tackles for a DE, but has a new DC in 2015.
6Everson GriffenDE27MIN4-364697Griffen broke out in 2014 and should return to a similar role in Zimmer's 2nd year as head coach.
7Carlos DunlapDE26CIN4-379764Impressive 2014 tackle counts were complemented by 9 sacks, although Johnson's return could dampen his impact.
8Ezekiel AnsahDE26DET4-396886On limited snaps, Ansah hit both double digit sacks and 40+ tackles. Elite potential is there if he played 90% snaps.
9Muhammad WilkersonDE25NYJ3-481010510The arrival of Todd Bowles and Leonard Williams clouds Wilkerson's 2015 outlook.
10Fletcher CoxDE24PHI3-41081316123Cox is a solid tackle producer but needs to add sacks to enter the truly elite tiers.
11Rob NinkovichDE31NE3-4121311149Similar to Chandler Jones, NE's 3-4 allows Ninkovich to rack up tackles.
12Sheldon RichardsonDE24NYJ3-4141691213The arrival of Todd Bowles and Leonard Williams clouds Richardson's 2015 outlook.
13Jurrell CaseyDE25TEN3-413141210227Elite tackle #s and 7 sacks made Casey a DE1 in most formats.
14Cameron WakeDE33MIA4-31615141811512 sacks and positive PFF grades were nice, but meager 2014 tackles and older age lessen his dynasty appeal
15Charles JohnsonDE28CAR4-31812152016A decent finish didn't make up for a dreadful start in 2014, but 72 QB hurries/hits hint at what could have been.
16Olivier VernonDE24MIA4-321112115145Although not dreadful, Vernon's season was disappointing after his 2013 breakout.
17Cameron JordanDE25NO3-41720171315-3Jordan was inconsistent and sack-dependent in 2014. The roster looks similar in 2015.
18Corey LiugetDE25SD3-41521191817Boasting great tackle volumes, Liugets a high floor player and a great value in tackle-heavy scoring.
19Vic BeasleyDE22ATL4-31919161920-3Unlike pretty much all LEO rushers, host sites are slow to declare Beasley DE. He's much less appealing at LB.
20Leonard WilliamsDT21NYJ3-41118202324-3Landing in Todd Bowles 3-4 is great for his IDP outlook. Meeting Wilkerson and Richardson is less encouraging.
21Aaron DonaldDT24STL4-3232222173010He set the standard for rookie DTs in 2014 and should be top 3 at the position.
22Gerald McCoyDT27TBTampa 22423182128McCoy signed a 100 million dollar contract and has excelled in the Bucs Tampa-2 when healthy.
23Greg HardyDE26DALTampa 22017244018-11The elite talent will miss 10 games and enters a new scheme in DAL.
24Chris LongDE30STL4-3272631222610Playing too little and too late in 2014, we know Long should play better next year.
25Cameron HeywardDE26PIT3-422252539215Heyward was a very consistent, low ceiling DE2-3 in a role that shouldn't change much in 2015.
26Michael BennettDE29SEA4-32927302527-3Increased snaps and positive real-life grades didn't translate to great IDP #s, as Bennett remained a DE3 in SEA.
27Dante Fowler Jr.DE20JAX4-32633303023Jacksonville's new LEO rusher will miss 2015 with a torn ACL and won't contrubite before 2016 or later.
28Cornellius CarradineDE26SF3-43437283119-3Justin Smith's "retirement" opens the door for Carradine, but Armstead could also push for snaps.
29Owamagbe OdighizuwaDE23NYG4-33830233429OO lands on a rough depth chart, but has serious upside beyond 2015 as an explosive 4-3 DE.
30Michael JohnsonDE28CIN4-32832403025-8Johnson returns to the city, where he originally had success under Zimmer. Will there still be opportunities for IDP success?
31Randy GregoryDE22DALTampa 23231263831Off-field concerns and a loaded depth chart hinder what was previously seen as limitless upside.
32Geno AtkinsDT27CIN4-3352929373317Hopefully Atkins' slow 2014 was health related, as he's still a top 10 DT.
33Ndamukong SuhDT28MIA4-33328432736-5A great option among DT's specifically, the NT will wreak havoc in a new uniform in 2015.
34Demarcus LawrenceDE23DALTampa 23124473235Hardy's suspension offers Lawrence a chance to get his previously injured foot in the door.
35Kyle WilliamsDT31BUF3-43038332657931-year-old Williams' role will change with the arrival of Rex Ryan. Should remain productive, but may be reclassified to DE.
36DeMontre MooreDE22NYG4-32545444232Moore is a promising young talent who's opportunity will be challenged by the arrival of Odighizuwa, but JPP might not be back in 2016.
37Sen'Derrick MarksDT28JAX4-336273638435 tackles and 9 sacks were enough for a top 6 finish among DTs, before he tore his ACL.
38Arik ArmsteadDE21SF3-43634415040SF has room for Armstead to become a starting 3-4 DE, but he's a bit raw to jump into the role immediately.
39Desmond BryantDE29CLE3-439393749484If Shelton can create disruption at NT, Bryant is one of the lead candidates to benefit.
40Marcell DareusDT25BUF3-43241435Dareus will likely be Rex's NT, which has not been fruitful for IDP in recent years.
41Justin TuckDE32OAK4-342404849425A DE3 in 2014, the arrival of Mario Edwards Jr. could take some pressure off the aging DE.
42Kony EalyDE23CAR4-340355265375Ealy had was minimally productive in his rookie year, but looks to take a jump forward in 2015.
43Cedric ThorntonDE27PHI3-4484836544472 sacks in last 2 years is discouraging, but he remains a high floor option thanks to tackles.
44Datone JonesDE24GB3-449544534-5Jones was given a tiny role in 2014, playing drastically <50% snaps.
45Cliff AvrilDE29SEA4-3474947456Avrill will still be involved in Seattle's DE rotation, where he should produce moderate sacks and meager tackles.
46Sharrif FloydDT23MIN4-3533946Playing for Mike Zimmer, Floyd has top 5 DT potential
47Akiem HicksDE25NO3-446466453395Hicks' miniscule 2 sacks weren't a mistake, as he only posted 25 hits/hurries.
48Danielle HunterDE20MIN4-343425756535Chiseled, freaky fast, and 6'6", Hunter landed in the right spot with Zimmer, but is still a project.
49Dontari PoeDT24KC3-4495155517After Suh, Poe has shown the biggest capability of generating pressure from the NT position.
50Ra'Shede HagemanDE24ATL4-350446052525Switching back to a 4-3 could make Hageman a sneaky sophomore breakout candidate.
51Clinton McDonaldDT28TBTampa 23810There's hope for the only Tampa DL who didn't disappoint last year, as Michael Johnson moves on.
52Wallace GilberryDE30CIN4-3505710Johnson's return likely spells the end of significant snaps for Gilberry.
53Margus HuntDE27CIN4-3585114Very raw, but physically gifted, the words "project" and "27-year-old" don't sound good together.
54Dion JordanDE25MIA4-3554710A 2014 season long ban moves Jordan firmly into the bust category.
55Kroy BiermanDE29ATL4-344435010Bierman posted impressive tackle counts in 2014, but is likely a rotational DE in Quinn's 4-3.
56Mario Edwards Jr.DT21OAK4-3656841Edwards is likely to play an interior 4-3 position, giving him upside in DT-required leagues.
57Brian RobisonDE32MIN4-3585812A pectoral injury and arrival of Danielle Hunter cast some dark shadows on Robison's 2015.
58Kerry WynnDE24NYG4-348The young talent could land a bigger role eventually, but has serious competition on the depth chart.
59Danny SheltonDT21CLE3-46361549From the Wilfork/Ngata mold, Shelton will likely be an every-down NT sooner than later.
60Bennie LoganDT25PHI3-450596012Logan posted nice tackle #s, but minimal sacks while plugging holes up front as PHI's NT.
61Ngata HalotiDT31BAL3-466595610
62Henry AndersonDE23IND3-4415515Anderson is underrated and likely the most polished 3-4 DE in this year's class after Leonard Williams.
63Robert AyersDE29NYG4-35610
64Andre BranchDE25JAX4-349-6The arrival of Fowler reduces Branch's pass rushing upside.
