Summary

Darius Leonard's tremendous rookie year was one for the record books. Not only did Leonard log a whopping 163 combined tackles last year, but he also had four forced fumbles and eight passes defended. It is easy to see why he handily won Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. Notching seven sacks, Leonard also proved to be an effective blitzer on the handful of snaps each game he had in that capacity. This season, it's unlikely he'll reproduce such gaudy tackle or sack numbers, but over 100 solo tackles and four to five sacks is still a possibility. (May 20)
