RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Raji's 2011 numbers fell from the numbers he put up in 2010 as the Packers' defense struggled as a unit. If they want to turn it around, Raji will play a key role wreaking havoc in the middle. But while he's an important part of the Packers' defense, his role is not one that will generate the statistics of other positions.
Raji is unlikely to make a big statistical impact as the nose tackle in Green Bay’s 3-4, but he also figures to be more productive than most 3-4 noses due to his standout talent. The former ninth overall pick was disruptive in his second season last year, finishing with an impressive total of 6.5 sacks. If he can hold onto that pass-rushing production while improving his tackle totals a bit (he finished last year with just 39), he should be a decent late-round target in deep leagues.
The 2009 first round pick was plagued by injuries to start the season, but showed flashes of why he was a top-10 pick later in the year. He'll be part of the defensive line rotation in 2010.
