RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
2015 was a down year for Iloka after he recorded career highs in nearly every statistical category in 2014. He missed four games due to injury and recorded just 47 tackles, one interception, and four passes defensed on the season. He’s still the clear starter at safety in Cincinnati, and, if he’s able to stay healthy in 2016, he could return to his 2014 form, which saw him record 74 tackles, three interceptions, and 10 passes defensed.
Iloka started all 16 games at strong safety last season and finished with 66 tackles (41 solo), two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and one interception. He enters this term as Cincinnati's first-choice next to free safety Reggie Nelson and will look to build upon a steady showing last campaign.
A fifth-round pick in this year's draft, Iloka will begin his career as a back up, but has a chance to see playing time in his first NFL season.
