RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

There was no outlook written for Matt Elam.

2015

Elam, a 2013 first-round draft pick, took a big step back in 2014 following a respectable rookie season. He looked lost against both the run and pass, missing numerous assignments and tackles in a disastrous campaign. The Ravens will give him one more chance to prove that he deserves a starting job, but Elam's competition, fellow Florida Gator Will Hill, is far from a pushover. Elam will likely have to settle for a backup role at both safety spots.

2014

Elam is a somewhat conservative safety, recording a good amount of tackles in his rookie season (77), but only nabbing one interception. It usually takes part of a season to get acclimated to the pros, so Elam's second season could bring increased numbers all-around.

2013

Elam will remind people of Bob Sanders with how he seems to be out of the frame one instant and lighting up the ballcarrier a second later, and that ability to lock onto and fly toward the ball should lend itself to useful tackle totals. Elam will need to be more selective with his hitting in the NFL after consistently playing recklessly at Florida, but it's hard to dislike this rookie first-round pick. Former cornerback Michael Huff is the best bet to fill the center-fielder role previously held by Ed Reed, while Elam should replace Bernard Pollard with the traditional strong-safety tasks.
