Default Your Favorite LB's?

I have not really found any LB's I really like. It seems many LB's struggle with taking on OL in the run game. To their credit, they are asked to be faster and have more athletic ability with having to do more in pass coverage. For me personally, I love an old school thumper style LB that is average in the pass game. I haven't watched many LB's to date. But I really like Phillip Steward. He is just a good football player. Who are your favorites?

There's only one LB in this class.

I like Jarvis Jones. He plays the game as if it comes easy for him. Never out of control. Looks for the ball when he's ripping at the QB. A thinking man's LB. I will love to see what his times are because to me he looks slow, don't know if it's just how smooth he is. We'll find out soon.

I like Kevin Reddick as well. He is solid all around. Good against the run and pass.

I love jarvis jones, Mingo, and jordan as 34 OLBs.

I think people sleep on chase thomas and brandon jenkins as good ones too.

I do like teo, i think as long as he doesnt go off the deep end he'll be a great player. Very overanalyzed and that has made him pretty underrated

LBers are only as good as their DL.

If you draft stud DL, then you can put almost anybody behind them and have a good defense.

Even if you have stud LBers, if your DL is below-average your defense will suck in both the run game and the pass game.

Case in point: 49ers the past two years. Best ILBs in the league, but when Justin Smith goes down, their defense hemorrhages yards. Similarly, when their DL is beasting, and Patrick Willis misses a game, they plug in Larry Grant and don't miss a beat.

If I were a GM I would never draft a non-pass-rushing LB higher than the 3rd round, ever. LB position is to the defense what the RB position is to offense.

With all respect, I disagree with some of this. You cant put anyone at LB. A LB needs to be able to tackle, shed blocks, play their gaps and not over-pursue plays. I do agree with the last part about non-pass-rush LB being taken higher than the 3rd round. Especially with the LB having to do more in pass coverage.

RB is more of a skill position where a team can have more of a rotation at that position then LB due to specialization.

I realize that you can't put anyone at LB. But you don't need anyone really special. You just need someone competent; and 6'2" 230-240lb guys who are competent are basically almost a dime a dozen. As I said, if I were a GM, all my LBers (that do not rush the passer - 34 OLBs are different) would be free agents or 3rd round - 7th round picks.

Quote:

My point is that LB and RB are both heavily affected by the DL and OL they play in front of, respectively, and that they are highly interchangeable parts that should not be invested in with premium picks.
