RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Expectations were high for Woodyard heading into last season after he posted 114 tackles (70 solo), 5.5 sacks and three interceptions in 2012. Unfortunately, he was unable to match his total from the previous season, finishing 2013 with just 84 tackles, 1.5 sacks and one interception. Things got so bad for Woodyard that he was essentially displaced by Danny Trevathan, who accumulated more solo tackles (88) than Woodyard's total count. The Broncos, who decided not to give Woodyard a new contract after his big 2012 season, let him walk this offseason and he found a new home in Tennesee, signing a four-year, $16 million contract. He'll be a starter for the Titans, and with Shaun Phillips, who focuses significantly more on rushing the passer than at stopping the run, on his side, Woodyard should have plenty of opportunities for tackles.

2013

Once little more than a special teams and nickel specialist with Denver, Woodyard has turned into a full-time starter who fills up the box score. Despite playing just 881 snaps on defense in 15 games last year Woodyard finished the season with 114 tackles (70 solo), 5.5 sacks and three interceptions. It's probably best to expect some regression from Woodyard's pass-rushing success in 2013, but it's likely his tackles will increase significantly as this will be his first season as a clear every-down linebacker.

2012

Woodyard isn't an every down linebacker for the Broncos, although he may be asked to take on that role with the off-the-field issues that D.J. Williams has encountered. With Williams suspended for the first six games of the year (at least), Woodyard will get an opportunity to pad his tackle totals and could sneak his way into the IDP conversation.

2011

Will backup D.J. Williams at linebacker and he could see lots of time if Williams goes down with an injury. However, if Williams stays healthy, it's difficult to see Woodyard contributing a lot.

2010

Woodyard has been known to put up some solid tackle numbers, but he primarily plays when D.J. Williams takes a break and that didn't happen very often in 2009 and is not expected to happen much in 2010.

2009

Woodyard had a number of good games in 2008, recording at least nine tackles in three games while filling in for the injuried D.J. Williams. Unfortunately for Woodyard, Williams is healthy again and the Broncos brought in a number of linebackers in the offseason, which will most likely decrease his playing time.
