RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Butler is expected to serve as the Colts' primary backup at cornerback and play consistently at nickel. He logged a career-high four interceptions in 2012, taking two of them the distance for touchdowns.

2012

Expected to backup Chris Gamble at cornerback.

2011

The third-year cornerback had just 23 tackles last season and seems destined for reserve duty in the Pats' secondary this season.

2010

In his second year with the Pats, Butler will likely start at left cornerback opposite Leigh Bodden. He should easily surpass his rookie numbers (35 tackles, three picks) given the added responsibility.

2009

Butler is an athletic cornerback with decent size, who will be the latest draft pick made by the team to correct the mistake of letting ball-hawk Asante Samuel go via free agency. With the way the Pats have blown through DBs the past few years (due mostly to injuries), there is an opportunity for upward mobilty -- and thus an expanded role -- for Butler, who was considered a second-round steal this past April.
