Anthony Barr, Eric Kendricks, Emmanuel Lamur, Kentrell Brothers, Ben Gedeon, Elijah Lee
The Vikings are far and away the top linebacker group. Barr is the body of an outside linebacker playing inside linebacker. He has the range to roam sideline to sideline and size to be a force in the trenches. Kendricks is a great fit next to Barr as a player who can move around in coverage. The two can do well in nickel situations and give size, youth, and consistency.
Lamur followed Mike Zimmer from Cincinnati and has been a solid depth and special teams option. With Chad Greenway now out of Minnesota Lamur is likely to see the field more. Then there is the second year linebacker Brothers and the two rookies Gedeon and Lee. All four have plus athleticism and can serve as special teams bets and depth options who could step up for Lamur. With the top end talent to go with the depth and youth the Vikings overall unit is one of the better bets in the league, let alone the division.
