RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Soliai is currently projected to start as the nose tackle in the Falcons new 4-3 "under" scheme, but he'll have to prove his worth during training camp in his first season with the team. Should he hold down the position for the duration of the season, 30-40 tackles and a sack or two seems about right.

2014

Soliai will anchor the starting nose tackle position for the Falcons in 2014. He adds some bulk to the defensive line, and he graded out well against the run last year. Another 30-40 tackle season is likely, but he's not much of a sack guy.

2013

Soliai is a solid defensive tackle who can help collapse the pocket, but only has 3.5 sacks in his career and hasn't had more than 29 tackles in each of the past two seasons.

2012

Soliai finally signed his long-term deal with the Dolphins this past off-season. With the contract off his mind Soliai should be able to concentrate on putting up the kind of numbers from the DT position that fantasy owners crave.

2011

Soliai had the best season of his career last year, so much so that the Dolphins franchised him and are talking about a contract extension for him. Soliai is one of the best nose tackles in the game and could be an IDP player to grab in your drafts.

2010

Solai's only chance at staying on the Dolphins roster is as a reserve defensive tackle and with the glut of talent at that position he may have trouble making the final roster.
