    Yea, mid-late 2nd round has produced a ton of LBs the past few seasons. Third round has produced a few.

    With the rise of the spread option offense in the college ranks, more and more teams are using a base nickel defense. I think in a 4-3, teams need to think more than they already do about college safeties bulking up for linebacker in the nfl.

    Yeah, but the first round linebackers that have gone recently, with the exception of Rolando McClain, have been studs.
