RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Ford's rookie season in 2014 didn't go as planned, as the first-round pick didn't start a single game. He totaled just eight tackles (four solo) and 1.5 sacks for the season, and with Tamba Hali and Justin Houston still on the roster for 2015, he'll likely serve in a backup role once again.

2014

The Chiefs selected Ford with the 23rd overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. He likely won’t be anything more than a pass-rushing specialist this season but he could eventually be the answer at linebacker if the Chiefs fail to re-sign Tamba Hali after this season. Ford is an explosive edge-rusher but he lacks the necessary cover skills to be an every-down player at this point in his career.
