RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There's little doubt that Casey is among the top interior defensive linemen in the league. Stout and strong at 6-1, 305-pounds, blockers can't get under his pads, and he has the ability to drive into the backfield once he anchors at the point of attack. After consecutive 50-tackle seasons to start his career, Casey progressed into peak form during his third year in 2013, finishing with 10.5 sacks and 55 tackles. Tennessee's switch to the 3-4 has his exact role in question, but coordinator Ray Horton is among the league's most creative. He knows Casey should rarely leave the field.
Casey enters the season as one of the Titans premier run stoppers at defensive tackle. He'll look to build on his 54 total tackles and 3.0 sacks from 2012 as the Titans season unfolds.
Casey did a solid job as a rookie, contributing 52 tackles (39 solo), 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble in 16 games (15 starts) after the Titans selected him in the third round out of USC. He is far from a pass-rushing demon, however, and as a DT the odds are generally against Casey making an especially big impact in 2012. He could improve on his numbers, though, since former starting tackle Jason Jones left in free agency, which could leave more snaps for Casey and allow him to push for 60 tackles.
