RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Like Luke Kuechly and Bobby Wagner, David emerged as one of the league's elite linebackers as a rookie last year, finishing with 139 tackles (112 solo), two sacks and an interception, and he's locked in for a three-down role again in 2013. It's likely no coincidence Tampa Bay fielded the league's top run defense when David arrived from Nebraska, as the rangy linebacker was a menace at and behind the line of scrimmage. David deserves a boost in the rankings if your league accounts for tackles for loss ("stuffs") as he finished last year with 16.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage. David had 24.5 tackles for loss in his 27 games at Nebraska, so this trend won't slow anytime soon. Fellow linebackers Mason Foster and Jonathan Casillas are not threats to eat into David's snap or tackle counts either.

2012

He barely looks like 225 pounds when heís on the field, but Davidís standout athleticism, refined technique and rare instincts have him locked into the Tampa Bay starting defense, and if his college career is any indication, good IDP production awaits. He finished his two seasons at Nebraska with 285 tackles (150 solo) in 27 games, as well as 11.5 sacks and 24.5 tackles for loss. Heís obviously unproven as a rookie, but David is a sensible later-round investment and could be among the league tackle leaders early in his career.
