1Luke KuechlyILB23CAR4-3111111Tackling machine, non stop motor and never comes off the field. Safest LB #1.
2Lavonte DavidOLB25TBTampa 2222222Could have supplanted Kuechly as tackle and fantasy pt leader if not for 2 missed games.
3C.J. MoselyILB22BAL3-4363855An incredibly instinctive every-down MLB, Mosley made a huge splash in his rookie year.
4Bobby WagnerILB24SEA4-3447745.2Wagner is a 3 down LB with a great motor, but stats limited by the quality of SEA D
5Mychal KendricksILB24PHI3-4554495.4Kendricks is one of the best athletes on the field and showed significant growth as a tackler in 2014.
6DeAndre LevyOLB27DET4-37116536.4Change in D scheme has made Levy go from a quality LB 2 to an elite LB #1
7Alec OgletreeOLB23STL4-39751267.8Ogletree has now posted two top 12 finishes in his first two years.
8NaVorro BowmanILB26SF3-411812388.4Bowman missed 2014 recovering from ACL/MCL injury and will return to a crowded LB corps in SF with a new coaching staff.
9Vontaze BurfictOLB24CIN4-3638211410.4-5The instinctive every-down WLB has suffered head and knee injuries with potential long-term implications.
10Kiko AlonsoILB24BUF3-41012149710.4Alonso returns from ACL injury to Rex Ryan's 3-4, where his top 5 LB days may be over.
11Paul WorrilowOLB24ATL4-38913111711.6The UDFA continued to be a tackle monster in his 2nd year, despite less than stellar real-life grades.
12Jamie CollinsOLB24NE3-417141661012.64Collins was a 3-down SLB who flashed major playmaking ability, but Mayo's return could stir things up in NE.
13Curtis LoftonILB28NO3-415109161913.8Lofton is a durable, consistent 3 down LB, who's IDP production likely exceeds his NFL value.
14Ryan ShazierOLB22PIT3-4121511172115.2Great combination of speed, blitzing ability and coverage skills, he had trouble staying on the field as rookie
15Paul PoslusznyILB30JAX4-3191317102216.2Will return from Biceps injury and look to post top 5 tackle volumes again in 2015, assuming Telvin Smith doesn't eat into his production.
16Patrick WillisILB29SF3-4161619132016.8His 2014 season ended on IR with a foot injury and he will have to earn his role from a new coaching staff.
17Sio MooreOLB24OAK4-3142025181217.8Incoming Jack Del Rio could signify a switch to 4-3, where Moore should remain an every-down player.
18Keenan RobinsonILB25WAS3-4231818201318.4The 25-year-old took over as the WAS LB to own with decent tackle counts and occasional sacks.
19Chris BorlandILB23SF3-4132323142519.6After Willis' injury Borland recorded double digit tackles in 5 of 6 games before enduring his own season-ending ankle injury.
20Anthony BarrOLB22MIN4-3212115271519.8Barr surpsised as an every-down SLB, but suffered a knee injury late in the season and could start slow in 2015.
21Telvin SmithOLB23JAX4-3281710222320Undersized and great in coverage, recent reports suggest he's an every-down LB in 2015.
22Jerod MayoILB29NE3-4222427191120.6Extensive injury history and great play by Hightower/Collins clouds Mayo's 2015, but he's been an LB1 when healthy.
23Lawrence TimmonsILB28PIT3-4201926152621.2-32015 could be his first year coexisting at Mack WILB with a healthy Shazier at Buck ILB, tackles may suffer.
24James LaurinaitisILB28STL4-3252224251822.8He's a solid 3-down LB, but Ogletree has relegated him to an LB3 role in IDP.
25Jelani JenkinsOLB22MIA4-3292820222725.2Miami thinks they have found a long-term answer with Jenkins at WLB.
26Jerrell FreemanILB28RFA182530263326.4It makes sense for the RFA to return to IND, where he'll be consistent, but with limited upside next to D'Qwell Jackson.
27Justin HoustonOLB26KC3-4263030311626.6The 2014 sack leader again posted modest tackle volumes and is yet to resign with KC.
28Derrick JohnsonILB32KC3-4272629233928.84An achilles injury could slow a 32-year-old Johnson, but he's got at least 1 more year in KC.
29Khalil MackOLB24OAK4-3313032303431.4A switch to 4-3 with incoming Jack Del Rio could spell trouble for Mack's usage/snaps.
30Preston BrownOLB22BUF3-4243338422432.2Rex Ryan's 3-4 could create an opportunity for increased snaps, although may limit upside.
31D'Qwell JacksonILB31IND3-4333222255533.4-4A top 10 finisher in combined tackles, Jackson would be ranked higher if younger.
32Sean LeeILB28DALTampa 23447332432343A torn ACL ended another season before it even began in 2014. LB1 upside will be hard to trust.
33Daryl WashingtonILB28ARI3-4423236293134Previously a 3 down LB and playmaker, his suspension(s) may spill into 2015.
34Brandon MarshallLB25RFA3231283535.4Marshall excelled in Trevathan's absence and possibly earned a role long term.
35Karlos DansbyILB33CLE3-4353335513036.8-6Dansby was a consistent volume tackler in CLE, but durability concerns are increasing at age 33.
36Christian JonesILB24CHI3-4533834332837.2Fangio's 3-4 produced some elite ILBs. It's possible Jones lands that role.
37Jon BosticILB23CHI3-4713421244138.24Fangio's 3-4 has produced some ILBs and Bostics likely to play inside in 2015.
38Von MillerOLB25DEN3-4302937603738.6One of the best sack producers from the LB position, Miller should post a nice contract year.
39Perry RileyILB26WAS3-4413939393638.8Riley's likely got 2 years as an every-down LB in WAS, but played 2nd fiddle to Robinson in 2014.
40Thomas DavisOLB31CAR4-3373532403931-year-old Davis is one of many players proving every-down SLBs are viable IDPs.
41Danny TrevathanOLB24DEN3-4484540352939.4-3Three significant knee injuries marred his 2014. His role is unclear in DEN's new 3-4.
42Brian CushingILB28HOU3-4364747404442.8Cushing again struggled with health in 2014 and wasn't an every-down back even when healthy.
43Demario DavisILB26NYJ3-4385131355942.83ILBs did well under DC Todd Bowles in ARI. Will Davis be the beneficiary on the NYJ?
44K.J. WrightOLB25SEA4-3404241464843.4Wright is the Hawks' 3 down starting WLB, great range and cover skills, though upside is limited by overall quality of Seattle D
45Wesley WoodyardILB28TEN3-44441464545.4Woodyard got relegated to a smaller role last year, but could push for more snaps with a full offseason in TEN.
46Emmanuel LamurOLB25RFA633745454346.6Lamur is another SLB, who has proven the position can be productive in IDP.
47DeMeco RyansILB30PHI3-4454348435647-4A consistent tackler and 3-down LB, he'll try to recover from an achilles injury this offseason.
48Stephen TullochILB30DET4-339355049.64Tulloch tore his ACL, allowing Levy to dominate at MLB. He'll be healed for 2015, but isn't a lock to reclaim his role.
49Avery WilliamsonILB22TEN3-4464444654949.6Every-down ILBs in TEN are TBD, but Williamson is young and has a shot at one of them.
50Bruce CarterOLB27FA5455523850Carter got plenty of chances to be IDP relevant and is a FA. Maybe a new team would improve his stock.
51Nigel BradhamLB25BUF3-45250544650.6Bradham will need to compete with Preston Brown to start at ILB next to Alonso.
52David HarrisILB31FA4948505751The 31-year-old is a consistent tackler, but isn't yet signed with a team for 2015.
53Anthony HitchensILB22DALTampa 228346651.2Dallas is definitely willing to give him a chance, but he's yet to firmly grab the opportunity.
54Christian KirkseyILB22CLE3-4555350495151.6While not a complete bust, preseason hopes were overly optimistic for Pettine's rookie. He'll look for a bigger role in 2015.
55Daryl SmithILB32BAL3-45857385852.4Smith was an every-down LB2, but isn't the long-term answer for the Ravens or your fantasy team.
56Jacquian WilliamsOLB25FA683449446852.6Williams won the 3 down WLB job for the Giants, he is raw but should improve with reps
57Rolando McclainMLB26FA676643366054.4With Lee potentially moving to WLB, DAL could use McClain back in 2015.
58Koa MisiILB28MIA4-34744726756.2
59Jon BeasonLB30NYG4-350585356.6Extensive foot injuries and a lofty salary make Beason a risk for off-season cuts.
60Prince ShemboOLB23ATL4-35958556156.8After moving to ILB in his rookie year, the Falcons varied his usage according to gameplan.
61Donald ButlerILB26SD3-443507357.6Butler lost his every-down role in 2014, and he wasn't particularly productive while he had it.
62Nick RoachILB29OAK4-356555657.8A prolonged concussion erased Roach's 2014 season. The 29-year-old will need to weigh his options this offseason.
63Chad GreenwayOLB32MIN4-3696846376957.8-3Greenway's definitely slowing down, but continues to post decent tackle counts when healthy.
64Larry FooteILB34FA51665358.8Footes 34-yr-old season was decent, but he slowed down the stretch and enters FA.
65Mason FosterILB26FA60595759.6
66Kevin MinterILB24ARI3-46664586260.2Failed to breakout in a depleted LB corps in 2014. He's unlikely to ever be an every-down guy.
67Jadaveon ClowneyOLB22HOU3-46160765460.4Microfracture surgery was only part of a disappointing rookie season. He won't reach true upside without DE designation.
68Vincent ReyILB27CIN4-364625961.4Was called on frequent to back up all 3 LB positions and looked solid when given opportunity.
69Aldon SmithOLB25SF3-47457705561.45In limited 2015 appearances, Smith only recorded 2 sacks but generated significant QB pressure.
70Sean WeatherspoonOLB27FA72486862-3An season-ending achilles injury was the latest woe for the oft-injured free agent.
71Justin DurantMLB29FA65636162.2Dallas MLB is up in the air, but unlikely to be Durant who is entering free agency.
72Lance BriggsOLB34FA575662.434-year-old Briggs's time in Chicago is likely over.
73Devon KennardLB23NYG4-362646563
74Ryan KerriganOLB26WAS3-4424763.216
75Arthur BrownILB24BAL3-476617656645Mosley was everything IDP owners hoped Brown could be. He has a chance to take the other ILB position from Smith.
76Craig RobertsonILB26CLE3-44864
77Kyle Van NoyOLB24DET4-355756364.2
78Jason WorildsOLB26FA547164.8A near every-down OLB, Worilds was decent in sack-heavy formats, but is a FA currently.
79Lamin BarrowOLB24DEN3-4755666Despite significant injuries in DEN, Barrow didn't claim a significant role in 2015.
80Jameel McClainMLB29NYG4-36266.8
81Dont'a HightowerILB24NE3-470697467Hightower played well in a 3-down role in Mayo's absence. His role in 2015 is unclear.
82Manti Te'oILB24SD3-473726467.4Healthy down the stretch in 2014, Te'o still provided limited upside.
