In a recent article posted to Bleacher Report, writer Matt Miller ranked the Defensive Lines of all 32 NFL teams.

The St. Louis Rams were tabbed as the top D-Line across the NFL, while the Giants led all NFC East Defensive Lines and were ranked 12th overall.

"Jason Pierre-Paul must be the anchor of this group, and he has that potential if he can stay on the field for 16 games. The pickup of Robert Ayers is very underrated, and he can be the third pass-rusher this defense needs.”

Matt Miller continued, “At tackle, the team needs Johnathan Hankins to live up to his potential, and many eyes will be on him as he steps into the starting role."

For the Giants’ NFC East rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles came in at No. 20, the Dallas Cowboys were 29th, and the Washington Redskins were in the cellar at 32.

What do you think Giants fans? Are you feeling good about the 2014 defensive line?
