RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Dent looks like he'll be the starting middle linebacker for the Falcons in 2012 as Lofa Tatupu was released after suffering a season-ending injury in late July. The Atlanta native finished his final year at Georgia with 125 tackles, including 6.5 for a loss. He’ll breeze past triple-digit tackles if he earns Curtis Lofton's former role on the inside.
The rookie will provide depth in his first season in the NFL as the Falcons plan to use him as a middle linebacker, and Curtis Lofton and Coy Wire are ahead of him on the depth chart.
