RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Ellerbe had trouble in coverage for the Ravens and likely would have been no more than a part-time player if injuries hadn't struck, but he emerged as an impact run defender and blitzer once he made his way onto the field. Considering the Dolphins are paying him $7 million per year, it would seem as if Miami plans to make a three-down player out of Ellerbe in 2013, which will make him a well-known IDP commodity. He had 89 tackles and 4.5 sacks while playing just 651 defensive snaps for the Ravens in last year's regular season, so as long as Ellerbe keeps Koa Misi and Dion Jordan from stealing nickel snaps, Ellerbe should establish himself as at least an LB2 option.

2012

Ellerbe provides depth at middle linebacker and plays on special teams.

2011

Ellerbe is still in the mix at inside linebacker, though Jameel McClain is once again the de facto favorite to take over the starting spot next to Ray Lewis.

2010

Ellerbe took over the starting inside linebacker spot next to Ray Lewis with three games left in the regular season when Tavares Gooden struggled with injuries. Despite going undrafted last year Ellerbe performed well, recording 21 tackles and an interception in the Ravens' final five games. He'll battle Gooden again for the starting spot, and may even be considered the favorite to win.
