RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

After a career-year in 2013 (60 TOT, 8.5 sacks), Brooks is lined up to be the starting left outside linebacker for the 49ers in 2014.

2013

Though he may face a team-mandated suspension early in the year for offseason off-field problems, Brooks is expected to be the starting outside linebacker on the left side and an integral part of the 49ers pass rush. The seven-year veteran is expected to improve on his 6.5-sack performance in 2012 and should be a solid contributor in IDP leagues.

2011

Brooks will likely start at outside linebacker.

2010

Brooks is a skilled pass-rusher who received extra reps in spring work due to the absence of Manny Lawson. He'll be in the linebacker rotation on second and third downs with the opportunity to record sacks, and could push Lawson for his starting job during training camp.

2009

Brooks should end up making the 53-man roster and will add depth to both the outside and inside linebacking corp.

2008

Brooks will see plenty of action on special teams as and limited time on defense as a backup linebacker for the Bengals.

2007

One of the bigger IDP wildcards heading into this season, Brooks could end up as the Bengals' starting middle linebacker, piling up the tackles, or he could be a fringe player. He's extremely talented but also carries a lot of personal baggage.

2006

Back-up middle linebacker. Brooks was picked in the supplemental draft so he missed rookie camp and offseason workouts, but he has been impressive thus far in training camp. He begins the season behind Brian Simmons on the depth chart at middle linebacker, and will also be competing for playing time with last year's rookie sensation Odell Thurman when Thurman comes off suspension. But the early buzz is that it is more a question of "when" Brooks will earn a starting linebacker spot as opposed to "if". Is worth keeping an eye on, but more for the future than for this season.
