At number 4, is defensive end Greg Rousseau who was drafted in the first round last year and is the only pass rusher on this list who was drafted by his team. The former Miami Hurricanes pass rusher had a promising rookie season where he started every game as a rookie.

This was surprising considering he was considered more of a project coming out of college but fit right in with this defense right from the start of the season. In addition to his four sacks, he really excelled against the run and led all edge rushers in defensive stops with 35, according to Pro Football Focus.

Rousseau is probably the one defensive end with the most potential in the AFC East and it is certainly possible in the next few years Rousseau is considered the best within the division. At 6’6″ and 266 pounds, he has incredible length that is unmatched within the division and causes problems for opposing quarterbacks.

This year has the chance to be a breakout season for Rousseau because of the addition of Von Miller, from learning the position to just having a former All-Pro on the field to take attention away from Rosseau and give him some favorable matchups.
