RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

There was no outlook written for Alex Okafor.

2015

As a rookie in 2013, Okafor suffered a season-ending torn biceps in Week 3, and his recovery extended through the same point last season. In his third career appearance in Week 6 against Washington, he took advantage of a lacking situation at outside linebacker, recording four solo tackles, two sacks, two tackles for loss, and two quarterback hits. As losses began to mount in the final two months, he put together the best stretch of his brief career, with six sacks from Weeks 10-16. Considering he logged 66 percent of the defensive snaps by season's end, he seems poised to emerge as a formidable pass rusher.

2014

During John Abraham's absence from the first half of the preseason, Okafor logged time as the starting weakside linebacker, which could extend into the regular season if Abraham is suspended for a June DUI arrest. Okafor himself has made just one appearance as a professional after sustaining a torn biceps in Week 3 last year, but during his final two collegiate campaigns at Texas, he displayed superior pass-rushing skills, totaling 19.5 sacks across 24 games.
