The 2021 NFL Draft may not be top-heavy in defensive prospects, but that doesn’t seem to apply to this year’s linebacker class.
With as many as four linebackers standing out as potential first-round picks and many more with starter upside at the next level, this year’s draft features plenty of intriguing prospects at the position. From athletic specimens to old-school thumpers, there seems to be quite a bit of variety with the class.
Danny and Jacob broke down some of their favorite linebackers in the 2021 draft in their latest episode of the LunchPail DraftCast. The guys discuss scheme fits for top prospects, their own individual rankings, late-round sleepers and much more.
