Outside Linebackers

Ryan Kerrigan: It is impossible not to love what Kerrigan brings to the table at the outside linebacker position. He is a very accomplished pass rusher who is also very stout and disciplined against the run. Last season Kerrigan had 64 tackles, 13.5 sacks and 5.5 forced fumbles. He is a star stuck on a struggling Redskins team.

Sean Lee: Lee is an athletically gifted linebacker who can play inside or outside linebacker. He missed last season with injury. He is trying to once again be the best defensive player the Cowboys have.

Middle Linebackers

DeMarco Ryans: Ryans is a great linebacker who is aggressive against the run. He is a hard hitting tackling machine with good athletic ability for an inside linebacker.

Mychal Kendricks: Kendricks and Ryan are a dynamic inside linebacker duo for the Eagles. Kendricks is another player who can do a bit of everything at the linebacker position.
