Colts' Jabaal Sheard: Expected to move to defensive end in scheme change
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheard is expected to move from outside linebacker to defensive end with newly hired defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus planning to implement a speed-based, 4-3 defensive scheme, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Eberflus' scheme calls for the defensive front to provide more pressure on quarterbacks and limit big plays, something that wasn't asked of the Colts' linemen as often in the 3-4 setup used under recently fired head coach Chuck Pagano. In the new one-gap line arrangement, Johnathan Hankins is expected to slide over from defensive end to defensive tackle, opening up a spot on the edge for Sheard. The 28-year-old Sheard is coming off a 2017 season in which he recorded 52 stops (37 solo), his highest total since 2012, his second season in the NFL. The presumed move to the line will minimize the tackle opportunities available for Sheard, though he could notice an uptick in the 5.5 sacks he registered last season; over his career, Sheard has delivered three seven-plus sack campaigns, all of which came under coordinators who favored 4-3 defenses.

Colts' Jabaal Sheard: Leads Colts with 5.5 sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheard had 52 tackles (37 solo), 5.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in 16 games for the Colts in 2017.

The Colts registered a paltry 25 sacks as a team this season, with Sheard being the only individual with more than three. The veteran linebacker finished fourth on the team in tackles and will likely have a similar role on the Indianapolis defense in 2018.
