NFL Draft: Linebackers at a glance
16 hours ago • By Jim Thomas email@example.com
CREAM OF THE CROP
Dion Jordan Oregon 6-6 248
Has the burst and overall speed (4.54) to be devastating edge rusher.
Jarvis Jones Georgia 6-3 245
3 words for those frowning on his so-so 40 times: See Terrell Suggs.
Barkevious Mingo LSU 6-4 241
Still unpolished; college production didn’t match his physical talent.
Alec Ogletree Georgia 6-3 242
Tons of athleticism but boom-or-bust type because of off-field issues.
Manti Te’o Notre Dame 6-1 241
Even with imaginary girlfriend, so-so workouts, should go late 1, early 2.

Arthur Brown, Kansas State; Khaseem Greene, Rutgers; Kevin Minter, LSU; Sio Moore, Connecticut; Cornelius Washington, Georgia.
Missouri’s Zaviar Gooden should go somewhere in the middle rounds.

Next to safety, outside linebacker is the Rams’ biggest need position on defense. Specifically, the strongside spot which was a timeshare a year ago between Rocky McIntosh, Mario Haggan and Josh Hull. McIntosh and Haggan are unrestricted free agents and still on the market. In addition, the Rams have brought in Jacksonville veteran Daryl Smith on a free-agent visit but there has been no indication as of now if Smith will land in St. Louis or elsewhere.

RATING THE FIELD
A decent year, with the top three LBs projected as 3-4 rush linebackers. For a variety of reasons, there is much uncertainty at the top over how high (or low) Jones, Ogletree, and Te’o will go in the draft.

What about the kid from Stanford I have been hearing so much from. I know they are looking at hime to be a 2nd or 3rd round pick but some have him going to the Rams.
