RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Darkwa gained nearly 3,000 yards on the ground and scored 39 rushing touchdowns in his four seasons as a member of Tulaneís backfield. His college success didnít really translate much to the NFL, however. Splitting 2014 between the Dolphins and the Giants, the rookie back finished the campaign with just nine rushes for 23 yards and a touchdown, adding an additional five catches for 48 yards. Heíll likely serve as depth in a 2015 Giants backfield featuring Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams on early downs and Jennings and Shane Vereen in passing situations. While most of his work should come on special teams, at 6-foot, 215 pounds and running a 4.46 40, he has the physical skills to make an impact in the unlikely event he gets an extended opportunity.

2014

Darkwa was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Tulane and would have to excel on special teams to make the team as the Dolphins have several players ahead of him on the depth chart at running back.
