Top 10 Inside Linebackers
 

 

[pic - click to view]



1. Patrick Willis, San Francisco 49ers

No wonder Willis, in his prime at 27, is the current class of the NFL at inside linebacker because he models his hard-charging, hard-tackling style after Lewis. A hamstring issue slowed Willis down a little last season, but expect him to return faster and hungrier after leading the Niners' dominant defense to the NFC championship game.

2. D'Qwell Jackson, Cleveland Browns

Jackson returned with a bang after not playing at all in 2010 and only six games in 2009 because of injuries. He proved he had great instincts and quick diagnosis skills in 2008, and those were on display at a prolific level again in 2011 with career highs in tackles (158) and sacks (3.5).

3. London Fletcher, Washington Redskins

As a young player with the Rams, this undersized but heady tackler was nicknamed "Dot Com" because he was always online when plays needed to be made. He is a fundamentally sound run stopper in addition to always being around the ball.

4. Brian Urlacher, Chicago Bears

Urlacher, 34, has shaken off recent injures and played back-to-back full seasons. With that rejuvenation, no wonder he's toying with the idea of seeing what he's worth outside of Chicago in 2013. The numbers last season (102 tackles and three interceptions) show Urlacher still has plenty of playmaking range.

5. NaVorro Bowman, San Francisco 49ers

The Niners have the NFL's best linebacker unit with Willis, promising second-year man Aldon Smith and Bowman. Entering his third year, Bowman has benefited from playing next to Willis. But when Willis was on the shelf for three games last season, Bowman proved he could handle making the calls. Bowman was free to be a more active tackler (143) in his first year as a full-time starter, and he's doing a pretty good job of keeping the Linebacker U. tradition alive and well.

6. Brian Cushing, Houston Texans

It would be easy to mistake his name for "Crushing" because he's a physical force against the run. His strength is, well, his strength to battle through blockers to bring down ball carriers. Fully healthy last season in the team's new 3-4, Cushing was nearly as impressive statistically as his standout 2009 rookie season. But he had a bigger overall impact in Wade Phillips' scheme.

7. Derrick Johnson, Kansas City Chiefs

Johnson, much like Chiefs outside linebacker Tamba Hali, has found his niche in Romeo Crennel's version of the 3-4 defense. His size at 6-3, 242 pounds and explosiveness were on display at the highest level during his first Pro Bowl and All-Pro season. He had a career-high 131 tackles while showing the athleticism to continue to shine in coverage.

8. Ray Lewis, Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens are undergoing another defensive coordinator change. The one constant they count on to keep their front seven in line — whether it's the 4-3 of the past or 3-4 of the present — is Lewis. Sure, he doesn’t have the same feet, but his head, heart and nose for the ball keep the big plays coming.

9. Desmond Bishop, Green Bay Packers

Bishop has an appropriate name in the chess game of a 3-4 defense operated by Dom Capers. Capers likes to move him all around the board, and Bishop responds by flying to the ball. He had 115 tackles, five sacks and two forced fumbles in 13 games last season.

10. Sean Weatherspoon, Atlanta Falcons

Weatherspoon, who was named the team's defensive MVP last season as a weakside linebacker, was the reason the Falcons could afford not to re-sign Curtis Lofton. His athleticism and production with 115 tackles and four sacks should translate well in his move to the middle of the 4-3. Under the direction of new coordinator Mike Nolan, look for Weatherspoon to have a breakout third season.

Love the top 3. Derrick Johnson's a little underrated here, and there's a handful of ilbs I'd take over Desmond bishop.

-posluszny
-James Anderson
-angerer

I'm sure a few more if I thought about it enough

Why do they have him as an inside LB when Spoon plays will?

And I was just on here getting sh*tted on because I said Spoon is a top tier LB in this league.

EDIT: never mind...I see they think he's moving inside. Idiotic list placement since he's never played the mike in the NFL, and he's too small to be a top 10 mike anyways

Maybe he'll play better moving back to the 4-3 but after last season there is no way he should be sniffing the top 10.


Gimme Beason over Bishop too.

If we didn't have such a bad run defense last year I would've probably seen my dude David Harris on there at the no.9/ 10 spot.
