Walker and Casey made the Pro Bowl as first alternates.
Orakpo had a very solid first season, but it would have been better if Derrick Morgan had been healthier longer and provided a pass-rush threat from the other side. Williamson is a rare draft pick who’s developed quickly and was both the team’s defensive signal-caller and an every-down linebacker.
Had Marcus Mariota not missed four games, he likely would have had a good battle with Blake Bortles at quarterbacking this team. As a rookie, he lost out.
