2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

The 2013 fourth-rounder played in all 16 games as a rookie last season, but only had 17 tackles in his role as a reserve linebacker. He's off the IDP radar unless he ascends to a starting gig at any point.

2013

The Dolphins fourth-round pick in this past April's draft will likely be in a backup role this year and participate on special teams.
