Holcomb played 11 regular-season games in 2020, recording 72 tackles (45 solo), 2.5 sacks and one interception.
The second-year pro entered Week 1 as a backup and missed weeks two through five with a knee injury, but he ended up starting 11 of Washington's past 12 games, including the playoff loss to Tampa Bay. Holcomb often worked in a three-down role, closing out the year with at least seven tackles and a 73 percent snap share in six consecutive games. His rate of one tackle for every 7.7 snaps hints at considerable IDP value if his role from November-January carries over to his third pro season in 2021. PFF graded Holcomb at No. 24 out of 88 qualified linebackers, seven spots behind teammate Kevin Pierre-Louis and 26 spots ahead of Jon Bostic. Pierre-Louis is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, while Bostic has one year remaining on his contract, and Holcomb has two years left.
