RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Despite missing six games with a foot injury, Teos second season in the league was a productive one. For the second year in a row, he notched 61 total tackles, but he did it in three fewer games and also added his first career sack and interception last year. Teo also finished the season strong, recording double-digit tackles in each of the last two games of the year, so he seems to be getting better with experience. Teo should be a key contributor in the middle of the Chargers defense in 2015, but rookie second-rounder Denzel Perryman could provide some competition for snaps moving forward.

2014

Te'o was a major disappointment as a rookie, posting just 61 tackles and no sacks, interceptions or forced fumbles. It's possible that a preseason foot injury limited him throughout the year, as he underwent surgery on the foot at the season's conclusion. With better health and a year's worth of experience on his side, Te'o ought to show significant improvement in 2014. Aside from Te'o and Donald Butler, the Chargers don't have any obvious candidates to compete for nickel formation snaps, meaning Te'o has no reason to not secure a three-down role.

2013

Free agent signing and former Packer D.J. Smith is a concern, but Te'o will be given every chance to win a starting and nickel formation role as a rookie with the Chargers. The increasing prevalence of three- and four-wideout formations means that roughly half of a defense's snaps come on 'passing downs,' and teams don't spend second-round picks on linebackers who only play half of the time. That means Te'o would have to significantly disappoint to not end up playing 75 percent or more of San Diego's snaps, but if he secures that role he should safely reach 100 tackles after easily passing the mark in each of his last three years at Notre Dame.
