I would say Bruce Carter followed by Greg Jones who might best served outside in the 4-3.

Bruce Carter is another Lawrence Timmons. Too bad he hurt his knee or else he'd go in the first round. Gonna be a steal.

Other top guys include Ayers as a SAM or MIKE, Greg Jones, and Mark Herzlich.

Mason Foster.

Agree. reminds me of one of those USC linebackers who were so good.

I expect him to have a Jerrod Mayo-like rise. People need to stop sleeping on this guy. He has been terrific the past two seasons and might of been the best pure LB in college football this season. It's not like he's lacking the tools either. He's 6'2 242, should run in the mid 4.6's and is a very fluid athlete.

Mason Foster is an ILB. He's a tackling machine so it would be a mistake to move him from the middle...very much like a Lofa Tatupu and will be similarly a 2nd round steal. I'm assuming this is just an OLB thread? Carter and Herzy come to mind.

Except for the fact that he's been starting at OLB since his sophomore year and only started at MLB once and that was in his true freshman year. So.......

I think he can play either, he reminds me a little of Keith Rivers and maybe a touch of Brian Cushing, i'm a homer but i love this guy.

I think he can play all three spots in the 4-3 and play inside in a 3-4. But for him to claim that he's not a 4-3 OLB is just plain silly.

Akeem Ayers and Von Miller.

Can't believe Travis Lewis hasn't been mentioned yet, he's my #3.

To answer the 30 year old who has made three separate accounts on here and spends all his spare time trolling a nfl draft site and fapping to the thought of Jake Locker...

No, no it hasn't.

Considering Von Miller is a 3-4 OLB, I fail to see him playing OLB in a 4-3.

Bruce Carter and Akeem Ayers are my Top 2 to play in a 4-3 scheme. Ayers should be able to move outside in a 3-4, as a Mike Vrabel type as well.

Mason Foster is an ILB, as is Greg Jones.

Adrian Moten is quite underrated as well.

You sound like you have an agenda. Perhaps you shouldnt reply to my posts. In fact, I've heard there's an ignore button on here.


If I've made your vagina that sore, put me on ignore. Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee....

it will be interesting to see where a guy like Ayers gets drafted as UCLA runs a 4-3, but he has his hand in the dirt a lot and rushes the QB all the time. I'm not sure I'd rate him as one of the top 4-3 OLBs, but maybe thats just me
