Darius Leonard's dominance resulted in a major coming-out party in 2018.

The Indianapolis Colts' 2018 second-round pick led the NFL in tackles, broke the franchise single-season tackle record (163), was named a first-team All-Pro, and he was given Defensive Rookie of the Year honors.

He's eyeing even more in 2019.

"I want 200 tackles. I want 10 sacks. I want to be NFL Defensive Player of the Year," Leonard said Tuesday on NFL Total Access. "I want to be All-Pro, Super Bowl champion, Super Bowl MVP. Just everything, just want my name at the top of the charts."

Despite all of his accomplishments last season, Leonard wasn't selected to the Pro Bowl. It's a slight that still bothers the standout linebacker.

"I wasn't MVP. I wasn't at the top of the charts. I wasn't a Pro Bowler. I wasn't a Super Bowl champion. So, (those are) still goals I want to achieve," he said. "And until I achieve them goals, I'm gonna still have that chip on my shoulder to outplay everybody and be the top competitor that I can be."
