NFL Draft – Outside Linebackers

Outside linebackers are a little tougher for me to scout because so many are 3-4 outside backers that basically become rush linebackers.  Here are a few names that are generally considered 4-3 OLB’s to hold down Nick Roach’s old spot.

Jarvis Jones - Jones has been given a clean bill of health but concerns linger about a spinal stenosis. If healthy, could be a monster.

Arthur Brown – here’s all you need to know about the K-State product, from Walter Football’s bio on him:

Brown has the reputation of being totally devoted to football with the drive to be great. He was unable to work out at the Combine.

Khaseem Greene – the Rutgers linebacker was extremely productive and has the reputation as a turnover machine.  Lovie Smith is drooling somewhere.

What do you think Bears fans?  Should the Bears go the draft route or free agency?  Perhaps both?  The Bears need linebackers and probably more than one.

  • 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.
