2017 OLB Prospect Grades (FINAL)

Date:
April 24, 2017

2017 NFL Draft Outside Linebacker Grades/Rankings 

Updated grades on the OLB group. Their grades can and will change with new information in and we will update and add prospects to this list right up to draft day and beyond.

A few notes on our 2.0 rankings...

-- T.J. Watt, surprisingly to me until I studied him, is one of the sneaky-best prospects in this draft.

-- We agree with the crowd -- Haason Reddick is going to be a nice, valuable NFL linebacker...he's our #1 ILB and #2 OLB.

-- Tyus Bowser is rated highly purely on athleticism because other than that he's 'OK' from what I've seen. He's either lazy or not very instinctive. However, his physical tools are high-end.

-- Georgia LB Eric Wilson is one of our top rated ILBs, graded OK as an OLB. He could play/start in the NFL as a 4-3 OLB.

-- Missouri State LB Dylan Cole is a terrific athlete, but I didn't see a great player on tape. He might be a nice convert to safety.

-- I love Pitt's Ejuan Price, but he has been an injury issue/concern.
