RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Dunlap is likely in the tier after Wilkerson, but Dunlap's tier is still a strong one. Huge (6-foot-6, 280 pounds) but athletic (4.68-second 40-yard dash), Dunlap has the raw talent to produce even better than he already has. It might seem greedy to expect as much after a 55-tackle, 13.5-sack 2015, but Dunlap hit 66 tackles the year prior, so there's no reason he can't push for 70 tackles and 13-plus sacks in the same year. The presence of elite tackle Geno Atkins should give Dunlap continued chances to roam, and he appears to be turning a corner in his development.

2015

Dunlap missed time with injuries in each of his first three seasons, but he stayed healthy the last two years, becoming one of the better mid-tier D-Line IDPs. At 6-6, 280, Dunlap makes an impact against the run, giving him a solid floor for tackles (62 per year the last two seasons). He's also averaged about seven sacks a season the last three years. While Dunlap's upside has been limited, he's long been known as a standout athlete and a breakout year as a pass rusher wouldn't surprise in 2015.

2014

The Bengals have used a fairly deep defensive line rotation in the last few years, which has limited Dunlap's snap count and, consequently, his ability to rack up high level of IDP stats. With Michael Johnson off to Tampa Bay thanks to a $43.75 million deal that included $24 million guaranteed, Dunlap has one less competitor for playing time. He set a career-high with 58 tackles last season, and his sack total has increased two years in a row. Dunlap also managed to stay healthy last season, playing all 16 games for the first time in his career. If he can stay on the field, he has decent chance to reach double-digit sacks in 2014.

2013

The defensive lineman rotation that helps the Bengals ends up hurting some of Dunlap's individual numbers, but the team gets more bang for their buck this way. He missed two games this year from a knee injury and has yet to play a full 16-game season for the team in his three years in the league.

2012

Dunlap dealt with knee, groin and hamstring injuries at various points last year and missed four games as a result. After posting 9.5 sacks in just 12 games as a rookie, moreover, Dunlap's sack production in 2011 fell off a cliff as he finished with just 4.5. His 23 tackles (11 solo) were completely useless, too. Still, Dunlap's raw athletic talent is exceeded only by the likes of Jason Pierre-Paul, Mario Williams and Julius Peppers among 4-3 ends, and Dunlap's due for a breakout performance more in line with his rookie year numbers in 2012. With Geno Atkins spearheading a deep defensive tackle rotation on the interior, Dunlap should see single teams on the outside.

2011

Dunlap had the talent of a top-five pick, but he fell to the second round of the 2010 draft due to questionable character and work habits. He wasn't active until Week 7, but Dunlap got his act together in time to go on a 9.5-sack rampage in the last eight weeks of the season. That showing confirmed he has more than enough ability to dominate in the NFL, but the character concerns that made him fall in the draft remain a factor.
