NFL CAREER – The third defensive lineman selected in the 2016 NFL Draft, Sheldon Rankins contributed to a defensive unit that ranked 11th in the league in opponent net yards per game, third in sacks and fourth in opponent rushing yards per game. Rankins' ability to rush the passer from the inside as well as take on double teams proved beneficial in 2019 again as he returned from a ruptured Achilles tendon suffered in the 2018 NFC Divisional Playoff to play in ten games and register ten tackles and two sacks.
