RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for Cedric Thornton.

2016

Signed away from the Eagles, Thornton will move from 3-4 defensive end to 4-3 defensive tackle in Dallas, a position that should suit him well given his size and physical style of play. He's never recorded more than one sack in a season and that isn't likely to change much with the Cowboys, but if he can command enough attention on the inside he could free up linemates like Tyrone Crawford to get to the quarterback more frequently. Thornton will have a bigger impact on the Dallas team defense than he will in IDP formats.

2015

Thornton had a big 2014 campaign as part of the teamís starting defensive line. He was opportunistic, picking up three fumble recoveries and returning one for a touchdown. He will start on right side of the teamís defensive line for the third straight season.

2014

Thornton was quietly one of the league's more effective interior defensive linemen last year, at least in terms of run defense. He'll figure prominently in Philadelphia's end rotation this year once again, likely as a starter.

2013

Thornton should start opposite Fletcher Cox and next to Isaac Sopoaga at defensive end in Philadelphia's 3-4. He's unlikely to become an IDP factor, though.

2012

Thornton will have a tough time earning a roster spot in a deep Philadelphia defensive tackle rotation.
