2016 ILB Prospect Grades (FINAL)

Date:
April 24, 2016

Quick Notes on the ILB rankings 2.0...

 -- If you don’t consider Jatavis Brown as an ILB (was more an OLB in college), which I would probably not use him as an ILB in the pros at first (but you could), then this is a pretty weak class of linebackers looking for hopeful ‘elite’ or Pro Bowl type ILB prospects. There are several ‘good’ options, but no prospects that are first-round material…but I’m sure Reggie Ragland goes in the 1st because ‘Alabama’. There are several linebackers with the skills, or different skills as Ragland.

 -- Akil Blount is a newly scouted ILB prospect since the last ranking, and some people are chirping about him. He can play in the league, but I don’t see him as a super ‘sleeper’.

 -- I still like Elandon Roberts as a ‘sleeper’ in this class. I’m not sure I can fully explain why, but there is something about him – solid, but not sure ‘special’ is on the table with him…just ‘good’, good value.

 -- We’re all over the map on Tyler Matakevich. His tackle numbers are more impressive than Scooby Wright. His measurables and tape, I don’t see it.
