RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Alualu re-signed with the Jaguars this offseason and will be a member of the team's defensive line rotation.
Alualu, the Jaguars' first-round pick in 2010, will compete with new arrival Red Bryant for playing time on the defensive line. His production will likely take a step back, reflecting the probable decline in playing time.
Alualu will make the move to defensive end this season, where the Jaguars hope to take advantage of his versatile skill set. The team's first-round pick in 2010 posted a solid 45 tackles (34 solo) and 3.5 sacks last season, but could stand to improve those numbers by returning to the position he excelled at in college.
Alualu is primed for his best season in Jacksonville after undergoing offseason knee surgery to correct an issue that's plagued him throughout his time in the pros. The former Golden Bear isn't going to post gaudy stats, but he and Terrace Knighton should team up to continue to form a tandem that wreaks havoc in the middle of the Jacksonville defense.
Alualu will start from Day 1 at defensive tackle.
