Brian Urlacher in the best right now but when you compare Ray and Brian throughout there careers and watching them play Ray Lewis is much better than Brian urlacher. Ray has got the super bowl ring and the DPOY awards. Urlacher has 1 DPOY award and will probably get a ring in a couple of years.

if the Jets played a 4-3 Vilma would be top 2 but I voted for him anyways cuz he's definately the coolest MLB in the league.

Urlacher.

Not sure why you gave that many options. While the players you listed are good players, about half of them I would not even consider as being the best MLB in the NFL right now.

You'd pick Lewis over Urlacher right now because he's an emotional leader? Lewis isn't half the player he used to be. And there's no debate here, Urlacher is the best in the game right now, period, end of story.

Lewis in his prime > Urlacher. Urlacher >>>>>> Lewis right now.

Brian does everything very well. He's great against the run, he's great in pass coverage, he's a great tackler, he's very smart, he can run sideline to sideline, he lines up our defense, and he calls the plays. He's the best MLB in the game right now and there's no doubt about that.

Brian Urlacher probably, but I still like Ray Lewis a lot. Zach Thomas deserves some love, too.

I voted for Vilma because if he went a team that ran the 4-3 he'd be as good as Urlacher.

He was 2nd in the league in tackles as a rookie, led the league in solo tackles. Over 6-1 235, runs in the 4.6s. He doesn't have elite tools but apparently hard work and intangibles can get you so far.

As of right now, it's Urlacher because of the lack of competition, but I'd take Ryans over him, as well as a few other guys.

Honestly as an Eagles fan, Trotter does not belong on this list nor was I surprised he wasn't on here.

He'll be an excellent MLB for the next 10 years I expect but never quite on the elite level, you really have to be a special player to do that. Ryans racks up tackles but theres more to be a dominating LB than that. IMO, next in line = Patrick Willis. Im also a big Buster Davis fan, I think hes the next Jon Vilma.
You obviously haven't watched him play enough. Demeco is a playmaker, you would think a Raiders fan would know this. Without Demeco we would have lost that game against you guys. That was one of the most dominant performances by a MLB I have seen in quite a while. 14 tackles, 1 sack, 1 int., 3 passes def., a FF, and a fumble recovery. Demeco is a playmaker, and there is no denying that.

He isn't big enough? 6'2 is plenty tall for a LB, and you are a complete hypocrite since you are a Buster Davis fan because he is only 5'9. I really like Buster Davis too, but that's because I'm not completely hung up on measurables. Ryans can lay the huge hit, and does so plenty of the time, there aren't any videos up of him in the NFL yet, but here's one from college.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRiDyQ2_KiM

Demeco's speed on the field is extremely fast. Just watching him you would think he was able to run a 4.45-4.5 40. What he lacks in straight line speed, he makes up for in instincts. He has some of the best instincts in the NFL, and is always the first to break up a play. His instincts boost his speed on the field because he knows exactly where to go, and goes to it sooner.

I said I would take him right now because as a rookie he put up perhaps the most dominant season by a rookie LB in NFL history. Imagine what he can do once he's reached his full potential. Urlacher's got about 5 seasons left where he can play at a high level, Demeco's just starting, and most agree he's going to be very good, so yes I would rather have Demeco at this point.

You sound quite a bit like all of the scouts in last years draft. Size isn't everything, which really isn't even a problem for him anyway.

Mike Peterson is very underrated, but he is greatly helped by the play of the big boys in front of him.
