Hey, I had a question about the linebackers in this years draft. First, it doesn't seem that there are too many great ILB prospects in this draft as far as I can tell. Is there anybody besides Laurinatis that has the speed and coverage ability to play in the cover 2 at ILB? Or, are there any OLB's that could also play ILB?

What about Beau Bell? I know Scott has him listed in the OLB rankings but can't he also play on the inside?

1. James Laurinaitis
2. Dan Conner
3. Jonathan Goff
4. Beau Bell
5. Shawn Crable(is he comes out 6'2-6'3)
6. Tavares Gooden
7. Ezra Butler

those are some of the guys.

Isn't Crable Suppossed to be 6'5"? And anyways he is pretty much a rushbacker

id say at this point henderson will be either the 3rd or 4th linebacker taken

I'm a big fan of Goff. I think he'll make an immediate impact.

crable is anywhere from 6'4-6'6, but certainly not 6'2-6'3.

I would expect Erin Henderson to be maybe as high as the 2nd LB taken, because UMD guys always impress at the combine and their stock then soars.

Ezra Butler will turn heads at the next level. 6'2 248, versatile guy who sheds blocks and has a lot of experience dropping back into coverage. Would make a hell of an ILB or OLB in a 3-4.
