Top 10: Outside Linebackers

It looks to be a very solid year for outside linebackers. AJ Hawk could be considered, though I have him as the #1 MLB prospect. Add a few underclassmen and this position is stacked. Also a great year for rush 'backers in the 3-4 defense (Dumervil, Lawson, Wimbley). Look out for Brandon Johnson of Louisville, though slim, could open some eyes with his speed at 6'5".

1.
Chad Greenway, Iowa
2.
Elvis Dumervil (DE), Louisville
3. DeMeco Ryans, Alabama
4.
Bobby Carpenter, Ohio State
5.
Manny Lawson (DE), NC State
6. AJ Nicholson, Florida State
7.
Kamerion Wimbley (DE), Florida State
8.
Thomas Howard, UTEP
