Corey Liuget: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)With more than $50 million up for grabs through the 2020 season, Liuget has upheld his end of the bargain following his selection in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft. A handful versus both the run and pass, the 25-year-old defensive end has yet to garner a Pro Bowl berth despite racking up 149 tackles (112 solo), 17 sacks, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and one defensive touchdown while starting every game the past three seasons.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Despite playing the entire 2013 season with a torn labrum, Liuget managed to start every game and racked up an impressive 42 tackles and 5.5 sacks. He is looking to make an even bigger impact in 2014.
Liuget made huge strides in his second season as a pro last year, notching 51 tackles and seven sacks. Heading into 2013, the Chargers are hoping he continues to improve on those numbers as the starter at one end spot.
Liuget will start at left defensive end in 2012, but the Charges will likely mix in Jacques Cesaire as well. Liuget's upside is fairly limited, however, as he only managed a total of 19 tackles and one sack in 2011 despite starting 13 games.
While head coach Norv Turner is hesitant to call his rookie pass-rusher the new starter at defensive end, but most everyone in San Diego believes that Liuget's performance on the field will make that a reality sooner rather than later. The Chargers' pass rush has left something to be desired these past few seasons, and they drafted Liuget with the hope that he can help create some pressure from the end, and that his presence will command some double teams, thereby creating more opportunities for the linebackers.
