7Muhammad WilkersonDE24NYJ6886710.5 sacks, 64 tackles in 2013. He wants a new contract and will play like he wants to get paid.

33Marcell DareusDT24BUF2935323532.75Arrested for drug possesion may face a 4 game suspension, should excell in new scheme.
34DeMontre MooreDE21NYG3540293735.25De"Monster"is competing to be the starting RE for NYG this year & is a prime break out candidate, Kiwanuka still in battle for reps

57Corey PetersDT26ATL4252Peters may have some minimal value in start 2 DT leagues.
58Fletcher CoxDE23PHIL5852544853Cox is a better football player than FF point provider, still waiting for breakout.
59Will ClarkeDE23CIN51515953Long, muscular, athletic 4-3 DE, will have to fight for playing time.
60Jason HatcherDT32DAL5054Hatcher will play DE in Wash's 3-4D, big change from 3 technique he played in DAL, #'s should fall.
61Terrance KnightonDT28DEN5555.25Productive DT may be serviceable in a must start 2 DT league.
