There are a ton of highly-rated defensive linemen, and it won't be hard to find quality players for a D-Line. Aaron Donald remains the only defensive lineman at 99 overall and has remained in the 99 Club for five years straight. While it seems Donald is poised to hold onto the top defensive lineman spot, upcoming players like Chase Young, Myles Garrett, and Deforest Buckner are climbing their way to higher overall ratings. As the NFL season progresses, the Madden Ratings Adjusters could make some big changes to the defensive lines.
