RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

After a 57-tackle, 11.5-sack season in 2013, Vernon disappointed last season. His 6.5 sacks were a significant regression, as he struggled in the season's second half, posting just two sacks in the last eight games. Vernon should find his work easier this season with Ndamukong Suh around to collapse the pocket and soak up double teams. He could also see more snaps this season with fellow DE Dion Jordan suspended for the year.

2014

Vernon came out of nowhere last season to put up 11.5 sacks. It seems he took notice that the team drafted Dion Jordan in the first-round before the season to essentially challenge him, and he rose to that challenge. Vernon will still likely be in a training camp battle for the starting job with Jordan but now he may have the upper hand with Jordan having to prove that he deserves a majority of the playing time over Vernon. This may not be easy to do if Vernon can continue to put up double digit sack numbers this season.

2013

Vernon had a solid rookie season for the Dolphins in 2012 with 3.5 sacks and 32 tackles but will likely be pushed for playing time by this year's first-round pick, Dion Jordan.

2012

Vernon is not exactly a household name after totaling just 1.5 sacks in six games during his final year of college, but the in-town product is nonetheless a great sleeper to emerge as an IDP factor as a rookie. His athletic talents are well documented, and the Dolphins simply have no talent at defensive end outside of Cameron Wake. Vernon's top competition for snaps appears to be Jamaal Westerman, who had just 32 tackles and 3.5 sacks for the Jets last year as a 3-4 outside linebacker.
