RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Jenkins first season as a starter for Miami was far from a successful one as he finished with only 71 tackles in 13 games. He is slated to once again start at WLB and with a healthy Cameron Wake and free agent addition Mario Williams for offenses to worry about, there is hope that Jenkins will see in increase in tackles this year.

2015

Jenkins wasn't expected to start last year, but injuries created opportunity, and by season's end Jenkins was arguably the team's best linebacker. Despite missing one game, Jenkins easily surpassed 100 tackles, and he showed good pass-rushing upside with 3.5 sacks in 899 snaps. Miami all but assured Jenkins a three-down role this year by shipping starters Dannell Ellerbe and Phillip Wheeler out of town, leaving only Koa Misi as a fellow returning starter. With more snaps this year, Jenkins has room for improvement.

2014

The 2013 fourth-rounder played in all 16 games as a rookie last season, but only had 17 tackles in his role as a reserve linebacker. He's off the IDP radar unless he ascends to a starting gig at any point.

2013

The Dolphins fourth-round pick in this past April's draft will likely be in a backup role this year and participate on special teams.
