RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for A.J. Klein.

2016

In his third season, Klein started six games last year, partially as a result to injuries to Luke Kuechly, but finished with 55 stops, one sack and one interception. In doing so, he proved to be a capable fill-in player, which suits him for the Panthers' No. 4 linebacker role this season while Kuechly, Thomas Davis and Shaq Thompson form Carolina's starting trio.

2015

Klein registered 39 tackles and two forced fumbles last season and is expected to compete with rookie first-rounder Shaq Thompson for the Panthers' third starting linebacker position next to Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis this season.

2014

Klein excelled on special teams last season and also started two games at weakside linebacker, finishing his rookie year with 21 tackles and two sacks. He'll compete with Chase Blackburn for the Panthers' starting weakside position, while also backing up Luke Kuechly at middle linebacker this season.

2013

The rookie from Iowa State will serve as a reserve linebacker this season.
