Colts' Darius Leonard: Down to 221 pounds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard currently weighs 221 pounds and plans to stay below 225 throughout the 2019 campaign, Kevin Bowen of ESPN 1070 The Fan reports.

Leonard weighed 234 at the 2018 combine, but he said he was down below 220 by the end of his spectacular rookie season, making him one of the lightest linebackers in the NFL. He led the league with 163 tackles (111 solo) despite missing one game, adding eight passes defensed, seven sacks, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and two interceptions. The second-round pick expects to be in better physical condition for his second pro campaign, as a leg injury prevented him from taking part in the Colts' offseason program last year. Leonard has a solid case to be the first IDP selected in 2019 drafts.

Colts' Darius Leonard: Paces NFL in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard recorded a league-high 163 tackles, including seven sacks, with eight passes defensed (two interceptions) and four forced fumbles in 15 games this season.

Leonard had 19 more tackles than any other player this year despite missing a game due to injury. He recorded 10 or more tackles in seven regular-season games and added at least 13 tackles in each of the Colts' two postseason contests. He also was second among rookies in sacks as he put together an impressive season that may win him Defensive Rookie of the Year. The 2018 second-round pick will look to come back even better for his follow-up in 2019.

Colts' Darius Leonard: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars.

The rookie second-round pick has been a beast this year, racking up 114 tackles, six sacks and three pass breakups in 10 games. He'll get a juicy matchup against non-traditional starters, as quarterback Cody Kessler gets the nod over Blake Bortles and running back T.J. Yeldon starts in lieu of Leonard Fournette (suspension).
