Takkarist McKinley made some noise during his rookie season. The 2017 First Round selection amassed 8.0 sacks (regular&post season) as well as two forced fumbles in his rookie year. McKinley is a natural pass rusher who showed off a lot of promise in his first season as a Falcon. McKinley is only scratching the surface, and he will make a big jump in 2018. I would expect McKinley to have atleast ten sacks, and more than a couple forced fumbles. Watch out for Tak McKinley off the edge in 2018.

Projected Stats: 10.5 sacks, 42 tackles, 3 forced fumbles

Runner Up: Derek Barnett, DE, Philadelphia Eagles
