COMMENTS
  Myles Garrett, CLE: He could end up being the best DL this season. Just needs to keep plugging away.

  Aaron Donald, LAR: One of the all-time greats, he's still getting it done and racking up the IDP numbers.

  Danielle Hunter, MIN: He should be recovered from the neck injury and ready to dominate again.

  Chase Young, WAS: The DROY should have a solid sophomore campaign, but will face more double teams.

  Joey Bosa, LAC: Injuries have kept him from the accolades he deserves, so if he's healthy this season, look out.

  Nick Bosa, SF: The injury was rough last year, so we'll see what he can do to rebound. Worth a risky pick in IDP.

  J.J. Watt, ARI: New team, new J.J. Watt. Hopefully the body holds up.

  Brian Burns, CAR: Versatile lineman who's emerging as an IDP stalwart.

  DeForest Buckner, IND: All-around beast who posts enormous IDP numbers.

  Cameron Jordan, NO: Jordan is a wily veteran pass rusher who gets forgotten among the greats. He's a top 10 DL every year.

  Jason Pierre-Paul, TB: I thought he was washed up -- but Tampa Bay is where these guys go to win.

  Cameron Heyward, PIT: Not too flashy, but posts solid numbers year to year.

  Sam Hubbard, CIN: One of the best young lineman in football, Hubbard should have another big year in Cincy.

  Demarcus Lawrence, DAL: He's clearly lost a step, but if he can get some help, should resume double-digit sacks.

  Leonard Williams, NYG: The move to the Giants locker room down the hallway in MetLife seemed to help last year.

  Josh Allen, JAC: Don't forget about the other Josh Allen, because he's pretty good too.

  Jadeveon Clowney, CLE: Note sure what he's still got left in the tank, but there's reason to be optimistic.

  Romeo Okwara, DET: Young, smart and effective lineman who can blow up a game when he's on his.

  Dre'Mont Jones, DEN: Another young star who's only getting better, Jones could break out in 2021.

  Maxx Crosby, LV: Another burgeoning star, Vegas has a few of these guys and could surprise in 2021.

  Brandon Graham, PHI: Steady vet DL with plenty of help in Philly.

  Quinnen Williams, NYJ: Emerged as the Jets best DL last season, and he's ready to post even better numbers this season.

  Carlos Dunlap, SEA: He's up there in age, but the Seahawks should know how to keep him fresh through this arduous schedule.

  Calais Campbell, BAL: I can't believe he's fallen this far, but age catches up.
