RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Kerrigan recorded 42 tackles, 9.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in 2015, giving him at least 7.5 sacks in each of his five NFL seasons. While he was rested often between games last year as he recovered from offseason knee surgery and mid-season hand surgery, Kerrigan should be fully recovered and stronger heading into 2016. He also will have more protection this year with a healthy Junior Galette and more experienced Preston Smith drawing attention on the Redskins' defensive front.

2015

Kerrigan continued to show improvement in his fourth season as a pro, recording a career-high 13.5 sacks and five forced fumbles. He has been very consistent over the course of his young career, playing every game and registering 50-60 tackles and a minimum of 7.5 sacks each of his four seasons. The Redskins replaced defensive coordinator Jim Haslett with Joe Barry, but hes still expected to play OLB and primarily rush the passer despite the change.

2014

Kerrigan has been a very durable player during his three years in Washington, although he underwent surgery to repair a torn MCL this offseason. He is expected to be healthy for training camp, but it wouldn't be surprised if he was limited early. That being said, he should be healthy for the regular season and he's coming off arguably his best season in the NFL, when he registered 66 tackles, 8.5 sacks and four forced fumbles. With 23.5 sacks in the last three seasons, Kerrigan could make the leap into double-digits this season.

2013

Kerrigan recorded a 8.5 sacks, one interception, and two forced fumbles in 2012. He should improve those numbers if Brian Orakpo (shoulder) can return to form and force offenses to spread their blocking.

2012

Kerrigan was impressive as a rookie last year arguably just as good as the more acclaimed Brian Orakpo showing no trouble transforming himself into a 3-4 outside linebacker after playing exclusively as a 4-3 end at Purdue. Kerrigan finished with 63 tackles (41 solo), 7.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and an interception return for a touchdown. Considering how dominant he was in college and how promising his play was as a rookie, its only reasonable to expect improvement out of Kerrigan. Anything less than double-digit sacks in 2012 would be a disappointment.

2011

The team's first round draft pick in 2011. The team will convert the defensive lineman to an outside linebacker in the 3-4 defense. This is the same conversion Brian Orakpo had to go through. Expect some ups and downs this year as he learns a new position. He has good strength and speed and there is no reason to believe he won't be successful.
