Individual defensive league (IDP) owners know that most players are interchangeable after the studs come off the board. Let help guide your team to a championship with our top IDP breakout players for 2010!

Player Team Analysis
Glenn Dorsey Kansas City Chiefs He posted a career-high 54 tackles in 15 games last year and is poised for a big season against the run - No. 2 potential for a No. 3 or less cost.
Chris Long St. Louis Rams Still young (25) and raw. Long developing as a pass rusher (9.0 sacks in two years). Second year in system and has tools to improve. No. 3 IDP choice.
Sedrick Ellis New Orleans Saints Talented but injury-prone. Has enough pass-rushing ability to contribute - speculative No. 3 and could come even cheaper.
Rolando McClain Oakland Raiders Elite rookie - 150-tackle potential. Will start in the middle and is easily worth the risk as your No. 2 linebacker. Could be a top-five producer.
Geno Hayes Tampa Bay Buccaneers Undersized (6-foot-1, 226 pounds) but is blazing fast, a nose for the ball. Came on last year but will become a household IDP name after 2010. Low-end No. 2 strong third.
DeAndre Levy Detroit Lions Pretty good rookie year (85 tackles, one INT) but has room for improvement. Easily could be a 120-plus tackler. No. 3 with low-end No. 1 potential.
Patrick Chung New England Patriots Expected starter - size (5-foot-11, 212 pounds) and speed. Versatile player that will contribute in a number of categories - No. 3 with No. 2 payoff.
Thomas DeCoud Atlanta Falcons Started 16 games in 2009 and posted respectable numbers. Very intelligent and has new talent around him; room for big-time improvement. No. 3 IDP.
Tracy Porter New Orleans Saints Porter's biggest enemy has been the injury bug - when he's on the field you see his talents clear as day. No. 3 IDP with No. 2 upside if healthy.
