Default Top LBs

I think the Top Linebackers in this draft are:

Patrick Willis - 101 Tackles 7 TFL 1 Sack 0 INT 1 FF1 FR 6 Breakups.
Buster Davis - 72 Tackles 5 TFL 3 Sacks 1 INT 1 Breakup
David Harris - COULD NOT FIND STATS
Tony Taylor - 63 Tackles 4.5 TFL 2 Sacks 4 INTs 2 Breakups
Paul Posluszny - 79 Tackles 4 TFL 2 Sacks 0 INTs 1 Breakup


I think all of these guys are MLBs except Posluszny. I know Buster can play outside as well as inside, not sure about these other guys...from what I have seen Tony Taylor may be able to play outside, but I am not so sure about his speed.

If Pusluszny Knee keeps getting better and is there in the 2nd RD. I think we need to jump on him. DWreck and this guy would be awesome. Same motor as Demeco, same nose for the ball and loves to lay the lumber.Plays way bigger than his size. 6'2 238 IIRC.

David Harris is a decent player but all that talent on the Michigan D makes him look better than he really is.

i really like pat willis, talk about a great player that has character. would get alot more pub if he played for anyone else. if we trade down or he somehow he slips i think he would be a great fit to play along side ryans for awhile.

Not really.

He has had serious work ethic & attitude problems.

He has tremendous talent but is character is an issue.

HB Blades is rated #40 on the Huddlereport.com. That is a solid 2nd rounder. Now their ranking is not the best at this time of year, but that is a # I have heard for him on other sites.

Default Re: Top LBs

I'm a bit biased, but I think Poz's versatility would be a real bonus. He played OLB his first three seasons, but switched to ILB this season, which along with wearing a heavy knee brace was a reason he struggled early in the season. On the other hand, I don't think he'll drop out of the first round.

DeMeco's playing well enough that I'd be wary of moving him outside and picking up one of the MLBs.

Are you serious? Paul Posluszny has looked horrible since his injury. He's not even the best LB on his team.

Connor has looked better but no way has Posluszny looked horrible.

Pozy hasn't looked like he did last year but he is really starting to improve. I watched the Illinios game and he was all over Juice in the 2nd half, i think he has like 10 tackles, a sack, and forced fumble that was returned for a TD. I would expect to see him make more plays in the last few games then he was earlier in the year.

OK maybe not horrible, but not a top LB. Conner is better.

Default Re: Top LBs

Update of my Top 5 LBs:
Patrick Willis - 112 Tackles 7 TFL 1 Sack 0 INT 1 FF 1 FR 6 Breakups.
Buster Davis - 81 Tackles 6 TFL 4 Sacks 1 INT 1 Breakup
David Harris - COULD NOT FIND STATS
Tony Taylor - 73 Tackles 6.5 TFL 3 Sacks 5 INTs 2 Breakups
Paul Posluszny - 93 Tackles 4 TFL 2 Sacks 0 INTs 1 Breakup


Paul has looked good to me. His stats are consistant with last years, and last year he had 115 tackles 11 TFL and 3 sacks. The only thing that is down is TFL. He is easily a top 5 linebacker

What I think is interesting is that Tony Taylor has 5 interceptions. He plays WLB for Georgia very well. He would be a nice upgrade to Greenwood.

Interesting that most of your guys are MLB, at least this year. I think Posz's TFL numbers being down has a little to do with him playing the middle this year, and yes Connor would be a great pick up for any team.

Also thank you for putting Taylor on my radar.
