RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

.

2013

Backup linebacker.

2012

Tapp figures to stick around Philadelphia for the final year of his contract, but the reserve pass rusher will see a limited snap count.

2011

Will rotate at defensive end.

2010

Tapp gets a fresh start this season after being traded to the Eagles, where he’s expected to serve as a bookend to Trent Cole. Undersized for an every-down DE, Tapp is a high-motor player who should fit well in Philly’s blitz-heavy scheme — especially with Cole on the other side to draw extra blockers. Tapp shared time at defensive end in Seattle, but when he played regularly he performed.

2009

Tapp doesn’t possess ideal size for a defensive end (6-1, 270), but he plays with a relentless motor. Last year he had to share time early in the season with first-round pick Lawrence Jackson, and it wasn’t until Patrick Kerney’s season ended with a shoulder injury that Tapp took off. Tapp didn’t record a sack until Week 9, Kerney’s first week out of action, and then finished with 5.5. Seattle signed Colin Cole and Cory Redding to fortify the DT spots, which should help free up the DEs, but with Kerney healthy, Tapp might have to split time with Jackson again. On the positive side, Tapp has increased his tackles every year, finishing with 55 last season.

2008

Tapp is still a raw talent, just two years out of college. He made seven sacks in 2007, four of which came in one game before a broken hand helped limit him to just 1.5 sacks in the final nine games. His 49 tackles were distributed fairly evenly throughout the season, though. Tapp added three forced fumbles and an interception. He'll face competition this season from firstround pick Lawrence Jackson for the starting job. Jackson is bigger than the undersized Tapp (6-1, 270) and could play on running downs, leaving Tapp to be used as a situational pass rusher. In that case, Tapp's tackles likely would decrease, though he could see a bump in sacks.

2007

Tapp provides defensive line depth. He'll be in the line rotation, but don't expect much more.

2006

The Seahawks' 2006 second-round draft pick, Tapp had 18.5 sacks in last two seasons at Virginia Tech. Don't expect much playing time to start with, but his development should be fun to watch.
