RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Chris Long is off to New England, and the Rams didn't add anyone to pick up the starting role left behind. That leaves Hayes to take over, after he gave a preview of it while filling in forthe injured Quinn in 2015. Donald and Quinn will take up most of the attention from opposing blockers, leaving Hayes with ample one-on-one opportunities, in addition to the presumed uptick in playing time. After tallying 53 tackles and 5.5 sacks in just 581 snaps last year, he should provide DL2 utility in a role that could push for 800 snaps.

2015

Hayes was thrust into the starting role in 2014 due to Chris Long's injury, and he performed decently. He picked up 42 tackles and four sacks, but with Long healthy, will be relegated to backup duty once again. That spot may actually be a better fit for him, as he had more sacks in 2013 despite playing less time.

2014

Chris Long and Robert Quinn may have the starting positions locked down, but Hayes is a valuable backup that ensures Long and Quinn don't get worn down throughout the game. Hayes had 28 tackles, five sacks, an interception and two fumble recoveries in 2013 and should put up similar numbers this season.

2013

Hayes will provide a rest for starters Chris Long and Robert Quinn as the backup defensive end. Hayes had quite a productive season as a backup in 2012, tallying 35 tackles and seven sacks, and if Long or Quinn goes down, may be a decent IDP.

2012

Hayes is expected to start the year as the primary back-up behind Robert Quinn at right defensive end.

2011

Hayes was plagued with injuries in 2010, but hopes to bounce back as a starting defensive end in 2011. He is a pass rusher with speed, and could have an impact with added size in the middle of the defensive line, possibly taking some attention and allowing him chances to get to the opposing quarterback.

2010

Hayes had a very strong 2009 with career-highs of 82 tackles, four sacks and two forced fumbles. 2010 will give him plenty of opportunities to improve on those numbers, by being his first full year as the starting defensive end.

2009

Hayes, who is considered a raw talent, recorded just one sack last year. He will be utilized as a backup at the defensive end position in 2009.

2008

Hayes is expected to add depth to the defensive line.
