2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Burfict went from five-star recruit to a bust at Arizona State, but the undrafted rookie started to capitalize on his talents once the Bengals gambled on him after the draft. He finished 2012 as Cincinnati's top linebacker, and he heads into 2013 with the same distinction. He closed out his rookie year with 127 tackles despite playing just 887 snaps on defense, and it's possible that he'll see a bigger snap count in 2013. He is somewhat of a risk, given his questionable history, and it's possible free-agent signee James Harrison might steal some tackles.
