1Luke KuechlyILB24CAR4-3111211.2Tackling machine, non stop motor and never comes off the field. Safest LB #1.
2Lavonte DavidOLB25TBTampa 2222121.8Could have supplanted Kuechly as tackle and fantasy pt leader if not for 2 missed games.
3C.J. MoselyILB22BAL3-4434554.2An incredibly instinctive every-down ILB, Mosley made a huge splash in his rookie year.
4Bobby WagnerILB24SEA4-3366745.2Wagner is a 3 down LB with a great motor, but his upside is limited by the quality of SEA D
5DeAndre LevyOLB28DET4-3555385.2A new scheme made Levy elite in 2014. Would it have happened if Tulloch was on the field?
6NaVorro BowmanILB26SF3-4883635.6Bowman is recovering slowly from ACL/MCL, but is the last man standing after Willis/Borland retirements.
7Alec OgletreeOLB23STL4-36412466.4Ogletree has now posted two top 12 finishes in his first two years.
8Mychal KendricksILB24PHI3-47771098-3Two elite playmakers in one LB corp can't be good for Kendricks' IDP value.
9Jamie CollinsOLB25NE3-491098109.23Collins was a 3-down SLB who flashed major playmaking ability, but Mayo's return could stir things up.
10Kiko AlonsoILB24PHI3-412141011710.8Recovering from another ACL injury, Alosno moved to PHI, where he'll compete with Kendricks for tackles.
11Vontaze BurfictOLB24CIN4-315132191414.4The instinctive every-down WLB has suffered head and knee injuries with potential long-term implications.
12Telvin SmithOLB24JAX4-311922182415.8Undersized and great in coverage, recent reports suggest he's an every-down LB in 2015.
13Ryan ShazierOLB22PIT3-4101117121912.6Great combination of speed, blitzing ability and coverage skills, he had trouble staying on the field as rookie
14Keenan RobinsonILB25WAS3-4161614191315.6The 25-year-old took over as the WAS LB to own, but might not be a direct London Fletcher descendent.
15Paul PoslusznyILB30JAX4-317208232217.6Will return from Biceps injury and look to post top 5 tackle volumes again in 2015, assuming Telvin Smith doesn't eat into his production.
16Paul WorrilowOLB25ATL4-3191211312016.8-5The UDFA continued to be a tackle monster in his 2nd year, despite less than stellar real-life grades.
17Jerod MayoILB29NE3-42631131411195Extensive injury history and great play by Hightower/Collins clouds Mayo's 2015, but he's been an LB1 when healthy.
18Eric KendricksILB23MIN4-3131816171618.8-18Likely the MLB between Barr and Greenway, hopefully Zimmer finds a way to keep all 3 on the field for 3 downs.
19Jelani JenkinsOLB23MIA4-3201518213019.4Miami thinks they have found a long-term answer with Jenkins at WLB.
20Curtis LoftonILB28OAK4-3141740132319.2-7Lofton is a durable, consistent 3 down LB, who will try to recreate his IDP success in Oakland.
21Sio MooreOLB24OAK4-3222133201221.6-4Loftons arrival shouldn't threaten his every-down snaps at WLB
22Preston BrownOLB22BUF3-4252427242933.2Alonso's departure may open an every-down opportunity for the promising sophomore.
23Demario DavisILB26NYJ3-4243835266631ILBs did well under DC Todd Bowles in ARI. Will Davis be the beneficiary on the NYJ?
24Lawrence TimmonsILB28PIT3-4323015303224.42015 could be his first year coexisting at Mack WILB with a healthy Shazier at Buck ILB, tackles may suffer.
25Anthony BarrOLB23MIN4-3211920151519.2Barr surprised as an every-down SLB, but Zimmer will need to find a way to keep him on the field with new LB and DL talent.
26James LaurinaitisILB28STL4-3272925222133.2He's a solid 3-down LB, but Ogletree has relegated him to an LB3 role in IDP.
27Jon BosticILB24CHI3-4292537456336A good ILB will emerge from CHI, but it's not clear if it's Bostic, Foster, or Jones.
28Jerrell FreemanILB29IND3-4333326334430It makes sense for the RFA to return to IND, where he'll be consistent, but with limited upside next to D'Qwell Jackson.
29Justin HoustonOLB26KC3-4232331162523.8The 2014 sack leader again will return to KC and likely post modest tackle #s.
30Stephone AnthonyILB22NO3-4182219292625.6-30Anthony made a Herculean climb up draft boards and lands in a Curtis Lofton-sized void in NO.
31Derrick JohnsonILB32KC3-4324123394033.6-3An achilles injury could slow a 32-year-old Johnson, but he's got at least 1 more year in KC.
32Christian JonesILB24CHI3-4364036273341.84A good ILB will emerge from CHI, but it's not clear if it's Bostic, Foster, or Jones.
33D'Qwell JacksonILB31IND3-4302725327033A top 10 finisher in combined tackles, Jackson would be ranked higher if he wasn't well over 30.
34Sean LeeILB28DALTampa 2313429465134.8After a torn ACL, Lee will now be a WLB behind a vastly improved D-line.
35Brandon MarshallLB25DEN3-4344228383435.8Marshall excelled in Trevathan's absence and likelyearned a role long term.
36Daryl WashingtonILB28ARI3-4393751403740.6-3Previously a 3 down LB and playmaker, his suspension(s) may spill into 2015.
37Khalil MackOLB24OAK4-33530283636.6-8The arrival of Del Rio and Lofton could spell decreased/different usage for Mack.
38Benardrick McKinneyILB22HOU3-4452639353939.6McKinney is likely the ILB to own in HOU immediately, as Cushing hasn't been an every-down player.
39Von MillerOLB26DEN3-4373960365346.2One of the better sack producers, shifting to a 3-4 scheme won't help his consistency.
40Thomas DavisOLB32CAR4-34632535945.831-year-old Davis is one of many players proving every-down SLBs are viable IDPs.
41Karlos DansbyILB33CLE3-44036244737.6-6Dansby was a consistent volume tackler in CLE, but durability concerns are increasing at age 33.
42Shaq ThompsonLB/S21CAR4-32828342738.6-42Landing in CAR doesn't solve Thompson's position uncertainty. He's unlikely to break out at LB before Thomas Davis steps down.
43K.J. WrightOLB25SEA4-3414646494249.4Wright is the Hawks' 3 down starting WLB, great range and cover skills, though upside is limited by overall quality of Seattle D
44Stephen TullochILB30DET4-335486552.44Tulloch tore his ACL, allowing Levy to dominate at MLB. He'll be healed for 2015, but isn't a lock to reclaim his role.
45Devon KennardLB23NYG4-337347740.828
46Danny TrevathanOLB25DEN3-435503154Three significant knee injuries marred his 2014. His role is unclear in DEN's new 3-4.
47Michael WilhoiteILB28SF3-44425438341.6After surprise retirements, SF didn't address ILB in the draft, leaving Wilhoite as the favorite to start opposite Bowman.
48Perry RileyILB27WAS3-4423544473547.4-9Riley's likely got 2 years as an every-down LB in WAS, but isn't the London Fletcher
49Nigel BradhamLB25BUF3-44854256944.6Bradham's path to an every-down role became a lot clearer when Alonso moved to PHI.
50Emmanuel LamurOLB25CIN4-345574551.6Lamur is another SLB, who has proven the position can be productive in IDP.
51Rolando McclainMLB26FA515449.66With Lee moving to WLB, MLB is McClains job to lose.
52Alvin "Bud" DupreeOLB22PIT3-441591856-52The Steelers have a new freakishly fast and explosive 269 lb OLB. Good for them, but not necessarily IDP.
53Jacquian WilliamsOLB25FA377853.23Williams won the 3 down WLB job for the Giants, he is raw but should improve with reps.
54Ryan KerriganOLB26WAS3-46358505720The young OLB should valued highly in sack-heavy leagues.
55David HarrisILB31NYJ3-4434350546252.4-3The 31-year-old is a consistent tackler, and will work next to Demario Davis as Bowles' ILBs.
56Prince ShemboOLB23ATL4-3557251.24Switching back to 4-3, ATL may limit his snaps in 2015.
57Taiwan JonesILB21FA3864.4A Shrine game stud, Jones is a run stuffer with good burst.
58Craig RobertsonILB26CLE3-4488253.218
59Wesley WoodyardILB28TEN3-4465550.4-14Woodyard got relegated to a smaller role last year, but could push for more snaps with a full offseason in TEN.
60Avery WilliamsonILB22TEN3-4384565564350-11Every-down ILBs in TEN are TBD, but Williamson is young and has a shot to be one of them.
61Nate OrchardOLB22CLE3-44662.8Another edge rusher who will be lost to a 3-4 scheme.
62Kevin MinterILB24ARI3-4587458.4Failed to breakout in a depleted LB corps in 2014. He's unlikely to ever be an every-down guy.
63Christian KirkseyILB22CLE3-449557144.6-9While not a complete bust, preseason hopes were overly optimistic for Pettine's rookie. He'll look for a bigger role in 2015.
64Paul DawsonOLB22CIN4-3504857431751.8If Burfict has trouble returning from microfracture surgery, Dawson could slide in pretty seamlessly. But that's a big IF.
65Jordan HicksOLB22PHI3-4416156.8-65Hicks will need more than good intangibles and athleticism to pass Kendricks/Alonso/Ryans on PHI's depth chart.
66Daryl SmithILB33BAL3-4386453.6-11Smith was an every-down LB2, but isn't the long-term answer for the Ravens or your fantasy team.
67Denzel PerrymanILB21SD3-456426748.2-67An elite run stopper, coverage deficiencies may make him a two-down thumper.
68Eli HaroldOLBSF3-4554154.8-68Harold is an athletic pass rusher, who checks all the measurable boxes, but is an 3-4 OLB.
69Arthur BrownILB24BAL3-4765663.86Mosley was everything IDP owners hoped Brown could be. There's still a small chance to take the other ILB position from Smith.
70Vincent ReyILB27CIN4-359608055.6Was called on frequently to back up all 3 LB positions and looked solid when given opportunity.
71Bruce CarterOLB27TBTampa 250525752.6The Bucs will supposedly give Carter an every-down SLB role, but he's made little of big roles in the past.
72Brian CushingILB28HOU3-4524962.2-30Cushing again struggled with health in 2014 and wasn't an every-down back even when healthy.
73Jon BeasonLB30NYG4-3538055.2-14Beason seems likely to return to MLB for NYG, but will continue to be an injury risk.
74Anthony HitchensILB22DALTampa 26053.6-21Dallas is definitely willing to give him a chance, but he's yet to firmly grab the opportunity.
75Shane RayOLB21DEN3-4442861.6-75The speedy undersized pass rusher is likely to start in a rotational role.
76Justin DurantMLB29ATL4-36161.8-5Oft-injured and 29, Durant could be Quinn's WLB, a la KJ Wright.
77Jameel McClainMLB29NYG4-362623
78Chad GreenwayOLB32MIN4-36462.4Greenway's definitely slowing down, but continues to post decent tackle counts when healthy.
79Zach BrownILB25TEN3-447478163.45Recovering from a torn pectoral, he'll look to claim ILB starting position in 2015.
