Outside Linebacker
10 Most Commonly Picked Players
Khalil Mack, OLB , Buffalo , RS Sr  -  Appears on 5468 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Raiders need a quarterback, but they can get one in the second. They go with Mack, who is the second-best defensive prospect in the draft. He and linebacker Sio Moore would be a force to be reckoned with.

Anthony Barr, OLB , UCLA , Sr  -  Appears on 5383 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
If Barr falls here, the Titans should be elated, they need an outside backer, and the 2nd best backer (third best pass rusher) falls here, but there is a definitive drop off after Barr. I also think Barr is "safer" than Mack based on the difficulty of opponents he played against versus Mack (don't get me wrong, I think Mack still ends up being a stud).

C.J. Mosley, OLB , Alabama , Sr  -  Appears on 5195 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Need a replacement for Ray Lewis, and get one with the 'Bama stud Mosley.

Ryan Shazier, OLB , Ohio State , Jr  -  Appears on 3863 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Ohio State's tackle machine makes his debut in my mock higher than the Saints pick as the Cardinals need an upgrade alongside Washington.

Dee Ford, OLB , Auburn , RS Sr  -  Appears on 3052 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Broncos add to their front seven with this pick. Ford had a stand out week in Mobile at the Senior Bowl and has risen draft boards. Will fill the void for any departing FA LB.

Trent Murphy, DE , Stanford , RS Sr  -  Appears on 1474 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Packers need an outside linebacker and showed interest in Murphy - I think they grab him here.

Kyle Van Noy, OLB , Brigham Young , RS Sr  -  Appears on 1365 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Run on linebacker (defensive end types) continues with the Eagles improving their defense.

Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB , Georgia Tech , Sr  -  Appears on 550 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
If the Chargers take CB Jason Verrett with their first pick, they could look for a pass-rushing 3-4 OLB with this pick. Attaochu would fit this need. He should be a successful 3-4 OLB in the NFL. He would be a decent value here.

Demarcus Lawrence, DE , Boise State , RS Jr  -  Appears on 498 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Even though the Cowboys re-signed Anthony Spencer, they still need someone accross from him.

Shayne Skov, ILB , Stanford , RS Sr  -  Appears on 396 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Now this is more reasonable for Skov, who looked awesome in the Rose Bowl.
