COMMENTS
Joey Bosa, LAC: Huge upside for sacks/tackles but doesn't chip in enough PD and extras.

J.J. Watt, HOU: A little more risk now that he's older, but Watt still is the top DL.

Cameron Jordan, NO: The model of IDP consistency. No safer bet for Top 5 DL numbers.

  Aaron Donald, LAR: Better real-life defender than IDP but still makes the Top 10.

  Danielle Hunter, MIN: Two straight seasons with 14.5 sacks and 2019 saw him forced 3 fumbles.

  Nick Bosa, SF: Might have the edge on big brother and is in a great system.

  Cameron Heyward, PIT: Another consistent performer, albeit second-tier.

  Demarcus Lawrence, DAL: Risk/reward DL with plenty of upside. New additions on the Cowboys D-line should help.

  Frank Clark, KC: Volatile performer with plenty of IDP upside.

Melvin Ingram, LAC: Ingram's numbers are down the past couple years but he offers a solid baseline.

  Justin Houston, IND: Houston might get more sacks than Buckner, but the tackle numbers have dwindled.

  Calais Campbell, BAL: Looks to rejuvenate IDP numbers that dipped in 2019, but he's a wild card.

  Jason Pierre-Paul, TB: He's adjusted to the hand injury and remains a disruptive presence.

  DeForest Buckner, IND: Buckner should reinforce what had become a middling run defense and pass rush for the Colts.

  Josh Allen, JAC: Stood out as a rookie in 2019 and could improve on his sack totals in 2020.

  Carlos Dunlap, CIN: Still a fine selection later in your IDP drafts and always underrated.

  Jonathan Allen, WAS: Needs to reach his potential before he's a Top 15 DL. Sack totals lacking.

  Maxx Crosby, LV: A fine young athlete who made tons of big plays as a rookie in 2019. Huge upside.

  Yannick Ngakoue, MIN: He's a very disruptive force who's entering his prime and chipping in more big plays.

  Chris Jones, KC: Fought through injuries in 2019 following a 2018 breakout. Don't forget about this veteran DL.
