1Landon CollinsSS24NYG4-3 Defense112015 yielded great IDP stats and mediocre real life grades for the talented run-stopping rookie.
2Tony JeffersonSS25ARI3-4 Defense32Jefferson spent his contract year as a marginal IDP DB behind Mathieu and Bucannon.
3Reshad JonesSS28MIA4-3 Defense24The far and away DB tackle leader in 2015, Jones is rapidly becoming the consensus #1 DB.
4Harrison SmithFS28MIN4-3 Defense45He's a proven DB1 in Zimmer's defense, where he should have a productive contract year in 2015.
5Morgan BurnettSS28GB3-4 Defense83Still solid when active, but nagging injuries seem to be increasing.
6Karl JosephSS22OAK4-3 Defense67Coming off ACL injury. Athletic and shifty. 42 career starts. May represent value as some will stay away.
7Keanu NealFS21ATL4-3 Defense5106' 1" 216 Exciting hard hitting rookie with big ceiling!
8Jonathan CyprienSS26JAX4-3 Defense78Cyprien likely finishes 2015 as a top 10 tackler among DBs despite missing 2 games.
9Malcolm JenkinsFS29PHI4-3 Defense99Jenkins is likely a top 10 finisher in 2015 thanks to above average tackles and a handful of big plays.
10Marcus PetersCB24KC3-4 Defense1111An amazing 2015 campaign it was, but 8+ INTs isn't likely to happen again.
11Hasean Clinton-DixFS24GB3-4 Defense206Clinton-Dix showed improvement in his sophomore campaign, but may have benefited from numerous missed weeks by Burnett.
12Barry ChurchSS28DAL4-3 Defense1216Church is still at the forefront for tackles, but is virtually devoid of big plays.
13Rodney McLeodFS26PHI4-3 Defense14
14Corey GrahamFS31BUF3-4 Defense1415Graham was a revelation in 2016, with well over 100 combined tackles.
15Tyrann MathieuCB24ARI3-4 Defense1020Another ACL injury ended a magnificent 2015 campaign. He'll struggle to be ready for the start of 2016.
16Kam ChancellorSS28SEA4-3 Defense1617Chancellor's likely the S to own in SEA, but both are relatively low ceiling options for fantasy.
17Ronald DarbyCB23BUF3-4 Defense2112Darby's proving an adequate NFL talent and should continue to be tested opposite Stephon Gilmore.
18Jordan PoyerFS25CLE3-4 Defense19
19TJ WardSS30DEN3-4 Defense1921Health and an overly efficient DEF limited Ward's chances in 2015.
20Eric WeddleFS32BAL3-4 Defense1330A soon-to-be FA, Weddle's tackle #s and quicks seem to be falling, but he could have a few nice years left.
21Logan RyanCB25NE4-3 Defense1727
22TJ McDonaldFS26LA4-3 Defense3119McDonald should stay ahead of Barron, but there's no guarantee how this depth chart will shake out in 2016.
23Kenny VaccaroSS25NO4-3 Defense3318Vaccaro had more good weeks than bad, but still posted 3 or fewer combined tackles 3 times in 2015.
24Josh NormanCB29CAR4-3 Defense2625Being the "best CB in the league" doesn't always translate to IDP success, but it did for Norman in 2015.
25Jalen MillsS22PHI4-3 Defense22294 year starter. Thin frame but loose hips. Great footwork. Tweener saftey/CB. Lamarcus Joyner comparison.
26Calvin PryorSS24NYJ3-4 Defense4213Pryor's IDP production is improved, but snap counts and consistency are still concerns.
27Vonn BellSS21NO4-3 Defense2926Has opporutunity to shine early
28Reggie NelsonFS33OAK4-3 Defense2332An INT leader in 2015, Nelson has remained productive from the FS spot in Cincy.
29Eric BerrySS28KC3-4 Defense3523Berry reclaimed a job and showed flashes of his old self in 2015.
30Xavien HowardCB23MIA4-3 Defense2435
31Ron ParkerFS29KC3-4 Defense3031Parker still led KC's secondary in tackles, but likely has a lower 2016 ceiling than teammates Berry and Branch.
32Jaquiski TarttSS24SF3-4 Defense3824The rookie was productive when given the opportunity, but has a very unclear role in 2016.
33Antoine BetheaSS32SF3-4 Defense1845Bethea has been an IDP force when healthy and should be ready for his 32-year old 2015 campaign.
34Darian ThompsonFS23NYG4-3 Defense3233All-American two seasons in a row. 19 INT all time leader at Boise State. Undisciplined at times. Needs to improve technique. Burnett clone.
35Trae WaynesCB24MIN4-3 Defense2544Very good coverage corner.
36Donte WhitnerSS31WAS3-4 Defense3636Being the most relevant DB on the CLE roster wasn't enough to make him a highly valuable IDP in 2015.
37Bradley McDougaldFS26TB4-3 Defense3638
38Earl ThomasFS27SEA4-3 Defense5722Never a high ceiling option, Thomas' floor also dipped a bit late in 2015.
39Vernon HargreavesCB23TB4-3 Defense27556'2" 194lb Lacks bulk. Tight hips with trouble shifting direction. Tracks ball well. Round 3 grade with potentiel.
40Lemarcus JoynerFS26LA4-3 Defense5528It took quite a few injuries before Joyner surfaced into IDP relevence in 2015.
41Jalen RamseyCB22JAX4-3 Defense37466'5" 220 Super tall for position. Mature leader. Lots of missed coverage. Project for sure.
42Sean DavisSS/CB22PIT3-4 Defense43405'11" 200lb All Big Ten AP All-American. 9 INT in two years. Great ball skills matching up with WRs. Not great against the run.
43Miles KillebrewSS23DET4-3 Defense50346'1" 219lb BIG safety. 101 tackles in 2014 and 132 in 2015. Yoked up tackling machine. Loves contact. Outstanding physical traits.
44Chris ConteFS27TB4-3 Defense3947
45Michael GriffinFS32CAR4-3 Defense43
46Bashard BreelandCB25WAS3-4 Defense4742
47Su'a CravensLB/S22WAS3-4 Defense49436'1" 202lb Great athlete! Track star in long jump. Great at point of contact with leaping skills. Not laterally quick with stiff hips. Polarizing player.
48Clayton GeathersSS24IND3-4 Defense3460Talented young player. Nice DB stash.
49Byron JonesS24DAL4-3 Defense5939Combine freak! New age CB/S hybrid. Where will he settle in? High ceiling.
50Rashad JohnsonSS31TEN3-4 Defense4554An interesting talent, Johnson was the odd man out of the ARI secondary in 2015.
51J.J. WilcoxSS25DAL4-3 Defense50
52Derrick KindredSS23CLE3-4 Defense6041
53Josh ShawCB/S24CIN4-3 Defense51
54Byron MaxwellCB28MIA4-3 Defense4657

56Bradley RobyCB24DEN3-4 Defense52
57Kevin ByardSS23TEN3-4 Defense6837Disciplined zone coverage player. Sees field well. Great football IQ. Not as physical as his 5'11" 216lb frame.
58Trumaine JohnsonCB27LA4-3 Defense5253
59Justin SimmonsFS21DEN3-4 Defense48586'1" 200lb Good footwork and size. Good ball hawk. Hard worker. Can be slow to react. Trumaine Johnson comparison.
60Mike AdamsFS35IND3-4 Defense4464A functional IDP DB2-3, Adams isn't an enticing off-season hold at nearly 35 years old.
61Aqib TaibCB30DEN3-4 Defense5456
62Will AllenSS34PIT3-4 Defense5161It was the veteran Allen who absorbed PITs SS job, but he's a FA this offseason at 33 yrs old.
63Da'Norris SearcySS28TEN3-4 Defense5359Thought to be fertile ground, landing in TEN didn't lead to big tackle numbers for the run stopper.
64George IlokaSS26CIN4-3 Defense56
65Adrian AmosFS23CHI3-4 Defense6648
66Robert BlantonSS27BUF3-4 Defense58
67Kemal IshmaelSS25ATL4-3 Defense7049
68Jonathan JosephCB32HOU3-4 Defense61Joseph's still interesting in CB-required leagues, but saw significantly fewer opportunities in 2015.
69Janoris JenkinsCB28NYG4-3 Defense62
70Tyvon BranchSS30KC3-4 Defense63The oft-injured 28 yr old has the talent to be a stud, but has a limited role in KC so far.
71Mike MitchellFS29PIT3-4 Defense64
72Micah HydeSS26GB3-4 Defense65Great special teams player. Buried behind Burnett and Clinton-Dix
73Jason VerrettCB25SD3-4 Defense6962Mighty Might CB that was best in his draft class.
74Kyshoen JarrettSS23WAS3-4 Defense67
75Trenton RobinsonSS26WAS3-4 DefenseRobinson debuted big in 2015, but faded and was ultimately waived after injury.
76Dwight LoweryFS30IND3-4 Defense
77Jamell FlemingS27KC3-4 Defense
78Eli AppleCB23NYG4-3 DefenseUber competitive quick twitch beast. Great recovery skills. Plays big. NFL CB traits. Desmond Trufant comparison.
79Deon BushS23CHI3-4 Defense6' 202lb Physical player. Good tackler. Stiff in space with tight hips. May be over drafted due to measurables.
80James IhedigboSS33DET4-3 DefenseIhedigbo's 2015 was all over the map. He's 32 years old with a very uncertain future.
81James SampleS24JAX4-3 DefenseShame he got hurt. Has great knack for ball. Should pair well with Cyprien similiar to AZ tandem
82Derron SmithFS25CIN4-3 Defense
83Tashaun GipsonFS26CLE3-4 Defense
84Darian StewartFS28DEN3-4 Defense
85KJ DillonSS22HOU3-4 DefenseAthletic multi-faceted safety. Needs to improve tackling technique.

89Dashon GoldsonFS32ATL4-3 DefenseGoldson needed a good year and had a decent 2015 from both IDP and NFL perspectives.
90Prince AmukamaraCB27NYG4-3 DefenseHe's been an increasingly consistent option at CB,when healthy.
91Adam JonesCB33CIN4-3 DefenseThe controversial figure has found a way to make points each week from CB and carries a bonus in kick return leagues.

100Rodgers-CromartieCB30NYG4-3 Defense
101Jalen CollinsCB23ATL4-3 Defense
102Glover QuinFS31DET4-3 Defense3 INTs cushioned only so-so tackle #s in 2016 for the most rosterable DET DB.
103Alterraun VernerCB28TB4-3 Defense
104Devin McCourtyFS29NE4-3 Defense
105Jayron KearseSS22MIN4-3 DefenseShredded physique. Played safety and corner. Weak in man coverage. Better fit as safety. Fast as Hell
106Mac AlexanderCB21MIN4-3 DefenseExplosive quick twitch athlete. Lacks closing speed. Could struggle with big WRs. Consistent producer. Joe Haden comparison.
107Antrel RolleS3433 years old, Rolle should return to CHI, but has no guarantee for snaps.
