Biography

NFL CAREER –  The third defensive lineman selected in the 2016 NFL Draft, Sheldon Rankins started all 16 games in 2018 posting career highs in tackles and sacks with 40 tackles (26 solo), eight sacks for loss of 61 yards, one pass defensed and one forced fumble. In his second full season after missing seven contests as a rookie, Rankins' ability to rush the passer from the inside as well as take on double teams proved beneficial in 2018 helping the defense post 49 sacks, tied for fifth in the league, and finish ranked second against the run.
