Click here for our latest You Tube video!
In this episode Tyler breaks down the top 5 linebacker prospects for the draft. The Vikings have 2 linebackers guaranteed to start, but what about the 3rd? There is also that Anthony Barr is playing basically on a one year contract and he will likely need to be replaced in 2022, will the Vikings draft one to compete and possibly start? Linebackers While they are less important than ever before, linebackers are still vital to the success of the defense. With tight ends and running backs being more and more important in the passing game, you need your linebackers to be excellent athletes who can thrive in pass coverage. The traditional MIKE linebacker still has a place in the league, but it’s hard to place a premium on a position where a traditional style only plays on first and second downs. When I watch linebackers, I prioritize vision, instincts, and athleticism. Do they see the field well and react quickly to what they see? How is their sideline to sideline speed? Can they cover well? Can they string all of those things together to make a complete player?
