Todd McShay ranks his top Linebackers from the Senior Bowl

Linebackers

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.
