Todd McShay ranks his top Linebackers from the Senior BowlPosted: January 28, 2007
South No. 49 Patrick Willis ILB Ole Miss
North No. 31 Paul Posluszny OLB Penn State
South No. 33 Rufus Alexander OLB Oklahoma
North No. 45 David Harris ILB Michigan
South No. 30 Earl Everett OLB Florida
Willis stood out as the most complete linebacker at this year’s Senior Bowl. His quickness, instincts and toughness were evident during practices all week. Alexander displays outstanding athleticism for his size, and he’s far tougher and more instinctive than he gets credit for. Harris is a tough run-stuffer with limited coverage ability, which is why he projects as a second- or third-round pick. Posluszny, on the other hand, did not shine during agility drills and his stock is slipping a bit as a result. Everett was inconsistent this week and could slip out of the first day of the draft.
