RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Leroy Hill.
Hill suffered a groin injury in Week 1 last season and missed the next five games. The injury seems to sap some of his considerable speed as he was limited the rest of the way. The offseason was even worse as Hill found himself in legal trouble. He's suspended for the season opener and isn't out of the legal woods. If he can stay on the field, he's a solid playmaker at linebacker.
Hill missed the last month of the season last year with an injury. He returns healthy this year, and could see his sack total spike if he moves into Julian Peterson's strongside spot. He had 7.5 sacks from the strongside position in 2005. More likely, he'll return to the weakside, using his elite speed to make plays all over the field, while first-round pick Aaron Curry fills the strongside role.
Hill teams with inside linebacker Lofa Tatupu and fellow outside 'backer Julian Peterson to form one of the better linebacking units in the league. Hill is overshadowed by the two Pro Bowlers, but he made 81 tackles (58 solo) in 14 games (all starts) last season and three sacks. Don't expect a return to the 7.5 tackles he made two seasons ago, but if he stays healthy for 16 games, he could approach 100 tackles.
Hill saw his sacks fall from 7.5 to two last season, but he increased his tackles by 20. He is a speedy outside linebacker and completes a solid LB trio with Pro Bowler Lofa Tatupu and Julian Peterson. If he can combine his sacks from 2005 and his tackles from 2006, he'd be a decent fantasy option.
Hill turned in an impressive, if unexpected, rookie campaign, totaling 73 tackles and 7.5 sacks as an outside linebacker. With Pro Bowler Lofa Tatupu and newcomer Julian Peterson, Seattle boasts one of the better linebacking corps.
Hill will compete to start at weakside linebacker. D.D. Lewis, if healthy, likely will win the job, but Hill could be a reliable backup. Isaiah Kacyvenski and Tracy White are also in contention.
