Tackles: Troy Andersen

Troy Andersen has a lot on his plate in his second season as an NFL linebacker. The talent is obvious but he still struggled for much of his rookie year and is the biggest question mark on this defense.

Andersen's athleticism is incredible and now that he has some big guys in front of him, he should be able to rack up the tackles similar to how Foye Oluokun and Rashaan Evans did over the past couple of years.

There just aren't many players who will be able to run away from Troy Andersen. He just needs to improve his tackling strength and cut down on the missed tackles overall.
