RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Hitchens was a surprisingly effective rookie last season, playing in all 16 games and starting 11 while recording 75 tackles and an interception. He'll compete for a starting role as the strong-side linebacker in 2015

2014

Fourth round pick fell into a giant opportunity when Sean Lee was lost for the season on the first day of OTAs this offseason. If Hitchens can fend off veteran Justin Durant for the starting ILB spot in the Cowboys' defense, he has the athleticism and motor to put up very solid IDP numbers.
