NFL Draft – Insider Linebackers

Regardless of what happens with Urlacher, the Bears need to find someone to anchor the middle of their defense.

Alec Ogletree - the Georgia linebacker was productive as hell, but some off the field issues might cause him to slip in the draft.

Kevin Minter – despite a disappointing 40 time the LSU linebacker grades as a late first or early second round selection.

Manti Te’o – I’m including him on the list only because all draft sites grade the Heisman candidate still carries a 1-2 round grade.  For me personally, he’s off my board.

Kiko Alonso – looking deeper into the draft for a value pick, Alonso could be available in the middle rounds of the draft.  He’s had some injury bugs at Oregon, but also earned Rose Bowl MVP honors in 2012.

Jon Bostic – the Florida product’s strong Combine performance helped boost his stock into the middle rounds.  He was a core player on a good Gators defense.

  • Michael Praser

    The Bears need to go both routes no doubt about it.

  • Kenzie Dow

    We need to resign Urlacher and possibly bring in Barnett.

    • BearGogglesOn

      I think if they need to draft someone too. Have to get younger on defense.

  • Antoine

    We need to address this at our 20th pick in the draft. It’s time to inject some newblood at that position and use free agency for good back ups which we did already. We need to put a Monster back in the Midway. Sorry Urlacher but you were more like Micheal and Jason a little too slow.
