RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Barwin will start at outside linebacker in Philadelphia's 3-4 after leaving Houston in free agency. Although he had just three sacks in 2012, Barwin is very athletic and should improve since he has only played defense since his final year of college. He's not likely to be an IDP option, however.
The Texans felt comfortable letting Mario Williams walk because they have some young pass rushers, like Barwin, ready to bust out. His 11.5 sacks led the Houston defense in 2011, and there are rushing weapons from each side of the defense, making it hard for teams to key on Barwin. A nice IDP candidate here.
Barwin is making the move from defensive end to outside linebacker in the 3-4 unit introduced by new defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, who is looking for Barwin to start. The third-year player out of Cincinnati comes with a reputation as a pass rusher, so there's some IDP value potential.
Barwin will be involved in the Texans' pass-rush defense at the very least. There's a chance he could pick up a few sacks as a result.
Barwin was converted to defensive end as a senior in college and will continue on that path in the pros. The Texans will get him in the end rotation, with particular involvement in pass-rush situations.
