Top 10 Defensive Back Preview

Today we’ve put together a list of the top linebackers in the 2013 NFL draft.

1.  Dion Jordan, LB, Oregon

“The Praying Mantis” looks a step faster than everyone on the field

2.  Barkevious Mingo, LB, LSU

LSU has been a goldmine for defensive talent and Mingo will add to the list of impressive alumni.

3.  Jarvis Jones, LB, Georgia

The talent is obviously there. But there’s questions with his health and his pro day #’s weren’t good. If Jarvis Jones slips to the middle of the first round, some team will have a steal.

4.  Kevin Minter, LB, LSU

In a draft filled with OLB talent, Minter is the top MLB on our board.

5.  Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia

Overshadowed at times by his more well known teammate Jarvis Jones, Ogletree may be just as talented.

6.  Khaseem Greene, LB, Rutgers

Solid tackler and athletic. Might be a bit undersized but I think Greene will be a solid NFL starter.

7.  Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State

A former top high school recruit, Arthur Brown is a solid tackling MLB.

8.  Manti Te’o, LB, Notre Dame

He’ll be decent but for God’s sake the guy got catfished.

9.  Jamie Collins, OLB, Southern Miss

I may have accidentally watched about 5 minutes of Southern Miss play football over my life. But all you need to know about Jamie Collins is this:

10.  Sio Moore, LB, UConn

I needed to find a 10th linebacker. I saw this video and was sold. Not by deadlifting 600 lbs but by the dance moves on display.
