RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Luis Castillo.
Castillo will start at the right defensive end position. He has averaged two sacks per year from that position over the past four seasons, but the Bolts would love to see him come closer to the production he displayed in 2006 when he had seven sacks in only 10 games.
Castillo is again expected to start at one defensive end position for the Chargers. He has become a dependable player, but he doesn't really put up eye-popping numbers. In 2009, Castillo started 14 games but only registered 25 tackles and two sacks.
Castillo had a sub-par season in 2008, registering only 39 tackles and 1.5 sacks from his defensive end position. He is tentatively penciled in as a starter at defensive end heading into 2009, but rookie Larry English could possibly overtake Castillo on the depth chart in training camp because pass rush is an area that San Diego needs to improve this season.
Castillo's disappointing 2007 campaign can be blamed on injuries. He only managed to play in 10 games with totals of 3.5 sacks and 33 tackles. It was the second season in a row that Castillo played in ten games, so injury concerns are definitely something to keep in mind. If healthy, Castillo could put up some serious numbers.
Despite missing six games last season due to an ankle injury, Castillo still finished the season with seven sacks and was named an alternate to the Pro Bowl. Castillo is fast developing into one of the best young defensive players in the league. It would not be a stretch to expect double digit sacks and tons of tackles in 2007.
Castillo had an outstanding rookie campaign in 2005 and combined with Igor Olshansky to form one of the best young duos at defensive end in the league. Castillo slimmed down during the off-season in the hopes of being faster to the edge. The increased speed should result in strong tackle and sack numbers for 2006.
It is not clear if Castillo will crack the starting lineup in 2005, but the Chargers hope that he will play a big role.
