RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Sheard will compete with Barkevious Mingo to earn a starting outside linebacker job with the Browns in 2014. He saw a slight dip in production in 2013, but has the potential to rebound, depending on how he's used by the new coaching staff in Cleveland.

2013

Sheard has been a productive player in his first two seasons in the NFL, but his impending position change from end to linebacker hurts his value in IDP formats for 2013. His 15.5 sacks the last two years display his ability to get after the quarterback, but his 77 total tackles also point to a lack of volume production which will be necessary to carry significant value for most IDP formats.

2012

Sheard was quite promising in his rookie year, earning 16 starts and finishing with 55 tackles (40 solo) and 8.5 sacks. The five forced fumbles were a nice touch. Itís concerning that defensive tackle and 2011 first-round pick Phil Taylor suffered a pectoral muscle tear in May and will miss at least part of the season, but the presence of tackle Ahtyba Rubin and his elite power on the inside should be enough to keep Sheard free of double teams, with the exception of chip blocks. The addition of Frostee Rucker and Juqua Parker at end should be good insurance, too, and draft picks John Hughes (third round) and Billy Winn (sixth round) will hopefully help fill Taylor's gap. It doesn't hurt that divisional opponents Baltimore and Pittsburgh are a bit shaky at offensive tackle.

2011

As Cleveland transitions from the 3-4 to the 4-3, it would be surprising if Sheard doesnít end up starting in Clevelandís four-man front. The 37th overall pick in this year's draft is an impressive all-around prospect, possessing above average athleticism for a 264-pounder and a strong bull rush. He was the Big Eastís top defensive player in 2010, finishing the season with 14.5 tackles for loss and nine sacks in 12 games. Considering how late he'll be available in drafts, Sheard has one of the better cost-to-upside ratios among the IDP options this year.
