2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

A second-round selection last year, Ealy made little impact during much of the regular season, but finished with a sack in each of the Panthers' final three contests. Overall, he totaled 12 tackles, four sacks and one forced fumble as a rookie. Nonetheless, heading into the upcoming campaign, Ealy is expected to start opposite Charles Johnson at defensive end, which should provide him plenty of opportunities to improve his numbers, especially if his penchant for getting to the quarterback carries over.

2014

Selected in the second-round this year, Ealy figures to see playing time as a reserve defensive end this season. The proven duo of Greg Hardy and Charles Alexander should dominate the snap-count on each end, but Ealy is a pretty good athlete that could add another quality lineman to the Panthers' rotation.
