RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Dent is pegged to begin the season as the starting middle linebacker in 2013. He racked up 65 tackles in 16 games last season, but he should improve on those numbers in his third year in the league. Sean Weatherspoon and Stephen Nicholas are the Falcons linebackers to target in IDP leagues, but Dent will also put up solid numbers. Triple-digit tackle numbers are not out of the question.

2012

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.

2011

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.
