Top 10 Linebackers in the NFL
By Randy Maltz – Founder/Editor at Silver and Blue Report & Hook’em Report

During this 2011 offseason, ESPN has ranked the top Linebackers in the National Football League (NFL).  How do the best Linebackers in the NFL stack up? The NFL experts at ESPN weighed in with its rankings and here are the results. Our top linebacker, Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware, ranked third.  Comparing linebackers from 3-4 schemes to their 4-3 counterparts proved problematic for some panelists. AFC East blogger Tim Graham ranked Ware first among pass-rushers three weeks ago, but only ninth among linebackers.

Here is the list, enjoy!   Randy
