1Luke KuechlyILB23CAR4-31111Tackling machine, non stop motor and never comes off the field. Safest LB #1.
2Lavonte DavidOLB25TBTampa 22222Could have supplanted Kuechly as tackle and fantasy pt leader if not for 2 missed games.
3C.J. MoselyILB22BAL3-44345An incredibly instinctive every-down MLB, Mosley made a huge splash in his rookie year.
4Bobby WagnerILB24SEA4-33674Wagner is a 3 down LB with a great motor, but stats limited by the quality of SEA D
5NaVorro BowmanILB26SF3-488333Bowman is recovering slowly from ACL/MCL and is the last man standing after Willis/Borland retirements.
6DeAndre LevyOLB28DET4-35558A new scheme made Levy elite in 2014. Would it have happened if Tulloch was on the field?
7Alec OgletreeOLB23STL4-364126Ogletree has now posted two top 12 finishes in his first two years.
8Mychal KendricksILB24PHI3-47789-3Two elite playmakers in one LB corp can't be good for Kendricks' IDP value.
9Jamie CollinsOLB24NE3-413106103Collins was a 3-down SLB who flashed major playmaking ability, but Mayo's return could stir things up in NE.
10Kiko AlonsoILB24PHI3-4111497Recovering from another ACL injury, Alosno moved to PHI, where he'll compete with Kendricks for tackles.
11Ryan ShazierOLB22PIT3-49111716Great combination of speed, blitzing ability and coverage skills, he had trouble staying on the field as rookie
12Paul WorrilowOLB24ATL4-317121117The UDFA continued to be a tackle monster in his 2nd year, despite less than stellar real-life grades.
13Keenan RobinsonILB25WAS3-415161413The 25-year-old took over as the WAS LB to own with decent tackle counts and occasional sacks.
14Vontaze BurfictOLB24CIN4-314132114-5The instinctive every-down WLB has suffered head and knee injuries with potential long-term implications.
15Curtis LoftonILB28OAK4-312171619Lofton is a durable, consistent 3 down LB, who will try to recreate his IDP success in Oakland.
16Telvin SmithOLB23JAX4-31092223Undersized and great in coverage, recent reports suggest he's an every-down LB in 2015.
17Paul PoslusznyILB30JAX4-316191022Will return from Biceps injury and look to post top 5 tackle volumes again in 2015, assuming Telvin Smith doesn't eat into his production.
18Sio MooreOLB24OAK4-320201812Loftons arrival shouldn't threaten his every-down snaps at WLB
19Jerod MayoILB29NE3-4242713113Extensive injury history and great play by Hightower/Collins clouds Mayo's 2015, but he's been an LB1 when healthy.
20Jelani JenkinsOLB23MIA4-318152221Miami thinks they have found a long-term answer with Jenkins at WLB.
21Anthony BarrOLB23MIN4-319182715Barr surpsised as an every-down SLB, but suffered a knee injury late in the season and could start slow in 2015.
22Preston BrownOLB22BUF3-423222024Alonso's departure may open an every-down opportunity for the promising sophomore.
23James LaurinaitisILB28STL4-325252518He's a solid 3-down LB, but Ogletree has relegated him to an LB3 role in IDP.
24Justin HoustonOLB26KC3-4212131203The 2014 sack leader again will return to KC and likely post modest tackle #s.
25Lawrence TimmonsILB28PIT3-4322615262015 could be his first year coexisting at Mack WILB with a healthy Shazier at Buck ILB, tackles may suffer.
26Jon BosticILB23CHI3-42623193711Fangio's 3-4 has produced some ILBs and Bostic is likely to play inside in 2015.
27Sean LeeILB28DALTampa 2283024325A torn ACL ended another season before it even began in 2014. LB1 upside will be hard to trust.
28Jerrell FreemanILB28IND3-430292633It makes sense for the RFA to return to IND, where he'll be consistent, but with limited upside next to D'Qwell Jackson.
29Brandon MarshallLB25DEN3-431382828Marshall excelled in Trevathan's absence and possibly earned a role long term.
30D'Qwell JacksonILB31IND3-427242551A top 10 finisher in combined tackles, Jackson would be ranked higher if he wasn't well over 30.
31Derrick JohnsonILB32KC3-429372339-3An achilles injury could slow a 32-year-old Johnson, but he's got at least 1 more year in KC.
32Christian JonesILB24CHI3-434363327A good ILB will emerge from CHI, but Mason Foster arrival marks the beginning of a competition.
33Daryl WashingtonILB28ARI3-439332931Previously a 3 down LB and playmaker, his suspension(s) may spill into 2015.
34Danny TrevathanOLB25DEN3-4374235257Three significant knee injuries marred his 2014. His role is unclear in DEN's new 3-4.
35Khalil MackOLB24OAK4-332453034The arrival of Del Rio and Lofton could spell decreased snaps for Mack.
36Perry RileyILB26WAS3-4423139293Riley's likely got 2 years as an every-down LB in WAS, but played 2nd fiddle to Robinson in 2014.
37Demario DavisILB26NYJ3-4223435576ILBs did well under DC Todd Bowles in ARI. Will Davis be the beneficiary on the NYJ?
38Karlos DansbyILB33CLE3-440325130-3Dansby was a consistent volume tackler in CLE, but durability concerns are increasing at age 33.
39Von MillerOLB26DEN3-435356035One of the better sack producers, shifting to a 3-4 scheme won't help his consistency.
40K.J. WrightOLB25SEA4-339394642Wright is the Hawks' 3 down starting WLB, great range and cover skills, though upside is limited by overall quality of Seattle D
41Thomas DavisOLB32CAR4-338324031-year-old Davis is one of many players proving every-down SLBs are viable IDPs.
42Bruce CarterOLB27TBTampa 24152368The Bucs will supposedly give Carter an every-down role, but he's made little of those in the past.
43Emmanuel LamurOLB25CIN4-343504543Lamur is another SLB, who has proven the position can be productive in IDP.
44Nigel BradhamLB25BUF3-4335438Bradham's path to an every-down role became a lot clearer when Alonso moved to PHI.
45Brian CushingILB28HOU3-447534044-3Cushing again struggled with health in 2014 and wasn't an every-down back even when healthy.
46Avery WilliamsonILB22TEN3-436396546Every-down ILBs in TEN are TBD, but Williamson is young and has a shot at one of them.
47David HarrisILB31NYJ3-443385055The 31-year-old is a consistent tackler, but isn't yet signed with a team for 2015.
48Stephen TullochILB30DET4-3483547Tulloch tore his ACL, allowing Levy to dominate at MLB. He'll be healed for 2015, but isn't a lock to reclaim his role.
49Rolando McclainMLB26FA493659With Lee potentially moving to WLB, DAL could use McClain back in 2015.
50Wesley WoodyardILB28TEN3-4554645-5Woodyard got relegated to a smaller role last year, but could push for more snaps with a full offseason in TEN.
51Demeco RyansILB30PHI3-4524353-4Ryans' days in PHI are numbered aftered the arrival of Kiko Alonso and Brad Jones.
52Anthony HitchensILB22DALTampa 23458Dallas is definitely willing to give him a chance, but he's yet to firmly grab the opportunity.
53Christian KirkseyILB22CLE3-4544948While not a complete bust, preseason hopes were overly optimistic for Pettine's rookie. He'll look for a bigger role in 2015.
54Daryl SmithILB33BAL3-43856Smith was an every-down LB2, but isn't the long-term answer for the Ravens or your fantasy team.
55Chad GreenwayOLB32MIN4-34451378Greenway's definitely slowing down, but continues to post decent tackle counts when healthy.
56Jacquian WilliamsOLB25FA414466Williams won the 3 down WLB job for the Giants, he is raw but should improve with reps
57Ryan KerriganOLB26WAS3-445454117The young OLB should valued highly in sack-heavy leagues.
58Mason FosterILB26CHI3-438577Landing in CHI, Foster has a real shot to land an ILB role in Fangio's DEF.
59Larry FooteILB34RETIRED#N/A6649Foote will join the Cardinals coaching staff in 2015.
60Prince ShemboOLB23ATL4-35561Switching back to 4-3, ATL may limit his snaps in 2015.
61Craig RobertsonILB26CLE3-44870
62Michael WilhoiteILB28SF3-428After surprise retirements, Wilhoite is the favorite to start ILB opposite Bowman...for now.
63Jon BeasonLB30NYG4-35367-4Beason seems likely to return to MLB for NYG, but will continue to be an injury risk.
64Kevin MinterILB24ARI3-45862Failed to breakout in a depleted LB corps in 2014. He's unlikely to ever be an every-down guy.
65Aldon SmithOLB25SF3-470524In limited 2015 appearances, Smith only recorded 2 sacks but generated significant QB pressure.
66Jadaveon ClowneyOLB22HOU3-47650Microfracture surgery was only part of a disappointing rookie season. He won't reach true upside without DE designation.
67Nick RoachILB29OAK4-356-5A prolonged concussion erased Roach's 2014 season. The 29-year-old will need to weigh his options this offseason.
68Vincent ReyILB27CIN4-35968Was called on frequent to back up all 3 LB positions and looked solid when given opportunity.
69Zach BrownILB25TEN3-450396915Recovering from a torn pectoral, he'll look to claim ILB starting position in 2015.
70Devon KennardLB23NYG4-36465
71Arthur BrownILB24BAL3-476544Mosley was everything IDP owners hoped Brown could be. He has a chance to take the other ILB position from Smith.
72Justin DurantMLB29ATL4-35661Oft-injured and 29, Durant could be Quinn's WLB, a la KJ Wright.
73David HawthorneILB29NO3-440Hawthorne could get huge IDP #s if he lands Lofton's old ILB spot.
74Jameel McClainMLB29NYG4-362
75Koa MisiILB28MIA4-3497264
76Sean WeatherspoonOLB27ATL4-34668-6An season-ending achilles injury was the latest woe for the oft-injured free agent.
