RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Kiwanuka will serve as a situational pass-rusher behind Justin Tuck and Jason Pierre-Paul for the Giants in 2013.

2012

Starting strong side outside linebacker is hampered by his position where he typically faces extra blockers. Kiwanuka is also a very capable pass rusher and can lineup at end on passing downs.

2011

Strong side linebacker, could be a good source of sacks if he stays healthy.

2010

First-rate pass rusher will be a big part of the team's defensive line rotation, but Osi Umenyiora could push him for a starting job. Either way, Kiwanuka should be on the field a lot and could approach double-digit sacks.

2009

Kiwanuka gives the Giants a third top-flight pass rusher to go along with Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora. Kiwanuka isn't like to start, but on passing downs Tuck will move to the interior of the line with Kiwanuka playing on the end. Double digit sacks are possible, but Kiwanuka is unlikely to be an every down player.

2008

Returning from a broken fibula, Kiwanuka will be the team's starting strong side linebacker and top pass rushing threat from the linebacking corps. There's also a chance he could see time at defensive end.

2007

Kiwanuka will bring his big-time pass rushing skills to strong side linebacker this season. If he qualifies at defensive end in your leagues, that could be a bonus, but keep in mind that he'll have less chances to make tackles with the tight end blocking him on the strong side. Still, he has the pass-rushing skills to approach double-digit sacks as a linebacker, especially with teams scheming to block Michael Strahan and Osi Umenyiora.

2006

The Giants first round pick in 2006 is a pass-rushing specialist, with great quickness and tremendous burst. His long arms and good height will allow him to bat down passes at the line as well. The Giants vow to work Kiwanuka into the defense during his rookie season, but with Pro Bowlers Michael Strahan, Osi Umenyiora and quality reserve DE Justin Tuck around, it's hard to see him making a major IDP impact.
