2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Hitchens' numbers were very similar through his first two NFL campaigns but he could be in line for a big spike in production with Rolando McClain suspended for the first 10 games this season. The favorite to win the starting middle linebacker role while McClain is sidelined, Hitchens recorded 31 tackles and two sacks in the first four games of 2015 while McClain was also suspended.

2015

Hitchens was a surprisingly effective rookie last season, playing in all 16 games and starting 11 while recording 75 tackles and an interception. He'll compete for a starting role as the strong-side linebacker in 2015

2014

Fourth round pick fell into a giant opportunity when Sean Lee was lost for the season on the first day of OTAs this offseason. If Hitchens can fend off veteran Justin Durant for the starting ILB spot in the Cowboys' defense, he has the athleticism and motor to put up very solid IDP numbers.
