View Ranking History

1/15/22: Clark was a tackling machine in 2021, sitting at No. 2 in tackles this year and shooting up draft boards. Team sources have been raving about Clark, saying his skill set is similar to Micah Parsons'. While Parson is more explosive and violent as a tackler, Clark has better instincts. They think Clark could be a more athletic and more physical version of Zach Cunningham, who led the NFL in tackles early in his career. Clark is a future three-down starter who is a sideline-to-sideline tackling machine and can good contribute well in coverage.

In 2021, Clark totaled 136 tackles, two forced fumbles, 5.5 sacks, one interception and two passes defended. He had 63 tackles in 2020 and 49 in 2019 to go along with 3.5 sacks. The 6-foot-3, 245-pounder has excellent size to go along with quickness and athleticism. He could be a riser during the 2022 NFL Draft process.

7/10/21: Clark held his own in 2020, forming a nice tandem with Jabril Cox. Clark has the potential to rise taking on a bigger role now that Cox has departed for the NFL. With his size and speed, Clark could continue the LSU tradition of strong linebacker play. He flashed at times in 2020.

Height: 6-2. Weight: 228.

Projected Round (2022): 1-2.
View Ranking History

1/15/22: Lloyd amassed 111 tackles, eight sacks, one forced fumble, four interceptions and six passes defended in 2021. Team sources who like Lloyd say he is big, long and athletic. They feel he has good instincts, but is not overly twitchy. He is physical and has good length to play off blocks. Lloyd had made some impressive plays in coverage and as a rusher in 2021. He has a quality skill set and looks like a safe pick to be a quality starter. Lloyd should at least be a high second-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft and might get late first-round consideration.

7/17/21: Lloyd flashed in 2019, logging 6.5 sacks with 91 tackles for the Utes. He wasn't as good in 2020, but he still flashed on occasion. Lloyd needs to return to his 2019 form to have a shot at the pros.

Projected Round (2022): 2-3.
View Ranking History

1/15/22: In 2021, McClain recorded 95 tackles, two sacks and six passes defended. He was a reliable and steady defender for Auburn.

7/17/21: McClain was a tackling machine for Auburn in 2020, totaling 113 stops. He also notched three sacks, one forced fumble and a pass defended. It was a big improvement over 2019, when he had 55 tackles, but the sophomore did have three forced fumbles and an interception returned 100 yards for a touchdown. Showing well in pass coverage could help the senior to rise.

Projected Round (2022): 2-3.
View Ranking History

1/15/22: Harris has a first-round skill set, but he did not consistently play up to it in 2021. In 2021, he recorded 79 tackles, 5.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and three passes batted. In 2020, Harris notched 79 stops, 4.5 sacks, an interception and two passes batted. Harris is fast, athletic and strong. He has a lot of upside and could be a good value if he breaks out of his 2021 funk.

7/10/21: Harris notched 68 tackles, 4.5 sacks and two passes broken up in 2020. After an injury to Dylan Moses, Harris was thrust into a larger role and turned in an impressive freshman season for Alabama in 2019. Harris showed a lot of upside and the skill set to improve after gaining experience. He could be a fast riser as an upperclassman. Improving his production in pass coverage would help him.

1/15/22: Smith was decent for Penn State in 2021, and he showed a nice ability to drop into coverage throughout the season. He missed some tackles though, and his splash plays were down from 2020. In 2021, Smith recorded 81 tackles, two sacks, one forced fumble and five passes defended. He should return for his senior year.

7/10/21: With Micah Parsons sitting out the 2020 season, Smith flashed for Penn State, showing speed and athleticism. Like Parsons, Smith is a big linebacker who has serious speed. In the shortened eight-game 2020 season, Smith collected 37 tackles, two sacks, an interception and a pass broken up. He could be even better in 2021 thanks to his experience as a sophomore.

Height: 6-3. Weight: 245.
Projected 40 Time: 4.75.
Projected Round (2022): 3-5.
View Ranking History

1/15/22: Team sources think Walker's play was a bit off in 2021. He has the tools physically, but he does not play up to them. They view him as a mid-rounder who will get drafted because of his combination of height, weight and speed, but he is not as good of a player as he could be. In 2021, he recorded 49 tackles, a 1.5 sacks and a pass broken up.

7/17/21: In 2020, Walker was a steady linebacker next to Monty Rice and did a solid job of defending the run. Walker's tackle total will probably increase in 2021 because Rice is in the NFL. Walker also could benefit from playing behind an excellent defensive line.

Projected Round (2022): 3-5.
View Ranking History

1/15/22: Skalski got in better shape in 2021 and played well for Clemson. He is a tough run defender with quality instincts, and his improved conditioning made him more capable to defend the perimeter. Skalski could end up proving to have three-down starting potential for the NFL. In the 2021 season opener against Georgia, Skalski recorded 14 tackles and really played well. He had 87 tackles, 2.5 sacks and four passes broken up in 2021.

7/17/21: Slalski has been a solid contributor for Clemson over the past few seasons. His best year came in 2019, when he had 90 tackles, 4.5 sacks, one forced fumble and three passes defended. Skalski could become a three-down starter in the NFL. Testing well before the 2022 NFL Draft will be important for his draft stock.

1/15/22: Spector was solid for Clemson in 2021, notching 74 tackles, an interception, 2.5 sacks and a pass defended. While Spector was a quality defender for Clemson, he could have some limitations in coverage for the NFL.

7/17/21: Spector was decent in 2019, but he broke out in 2020, playing well in the shortened season. Spector had 65 stops with 4.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and a pass broken up on the year. Improving his pass coverage and production in pass defense as a senior would help him.

On top of being a tough run defender, Morgan was a team captain and inspirational leader. In 2021, Morgan had 101 tackles, .5 sacks, an interception and three passes broken up.

1/15/22: In the 2021 season opener, Allen went out for the year with a fractured foot.

7/10/21: During Alabama's undefeated season and National Championship run, Allen showed some ability to rush off the edge and had some timely rushes for the Crimson Tide. In his first season of extended playing time, Allen had five sacks, two forced fumbles and 33 tackles. It will be interesting to see if Allen can build on his resume now that he some additional experience.

1/15/22: Luketa had 61 tackles and an interception in 2021. He was solid, but not dominant, defender for Penn State.

7/17/21: In 2020, Luketa played well next to Brandon Smith, and they formed one of the nation's better linebacker tandems. Luketa has good size to him and runs well for a thick-build linebacker. Showing more pass-coverage skills in 2021 would help him.

1/15/22: In 2021, Baskerville had 83 tackles, two sacks, an interception and three passes broken up. He was a decent linebacker next to Damone Clark, but Baskerville faces some limitations for the NFL. He could have gone back to LSU, but he entered the 2022 NFL Draft.

7/17/21: Baskerville recorded 55 tackles in 2020 while playing in a rotation with a number of other talented linebackers. He is a tough run defender who needs to show progress in pass coverage. With Jabril Cox in the NFL, Baskerville should take on a bigger role in 2021, and his production should probably increase as well.

View Ranking History

1/15/22: Lee had just six tackles in 2021 because other defenders received more playing time.

7/17/21: Alabama has been a factory for linebacker talent, and Lee could keep that tradition alive for the 2022 or 2023 NFL Draft. With Dylan Moses being injured in 2019, Lee took on a larger than expected role as a freshman and had an impressive season, making a lot of splash plays for the Crimson Tide defense. His 10 pass breakups, 4.5 sacks and one interception was very impressive production in pass defense for a first-year player. Lee has a lot of ability and upside to develop as he gains experience and could rise as a replacement for Moses in 2021.

He broke out with 83 tackles in 2018, improved his total to 103, and made 82 stops in the shortened 2020 season. Rodriguez recorded three passes broken up and an interception in both 2019 and 2020. He could boost his draft stock by improving his pass coverage and production.

Landman turned in an excellent sophomore season in which he did a good job defending the run and produced a lot of big plays in pass defense. His production was down in 2019, but it can be hard for linebackers to duplicate huge stat lines. Landman needs to show pass-coverage skills with NFL speed and athleticism.

1/15/22: In speaking to some team sources, they have Tindall as a late-round or priority undrafted free agent. He was a decent contributor for Georgia in 2021.

1/15/22: Henry had 39 tackles in 2021. He did not impress for the Rebels.

7/17/21: Henry has been a tough run defender in the SEC over the past two seasons. He has a strong build and is a good tackler. To rise as a senior, Henry needs to produce more in pass coverage and show an ability to cover downfield.

31. California image Kuony Deng, ILB/3-4OLB, California
Height: 6-6. Weight: 250.
Projected 40 Time: 4.8.
Projected Round (2022): 7-FA.
View Ranking History

1/15/22: Deng recorded four tackles over two games before losing the rest of the season to injury. This was his sixth season at California after he took advantage of the extra of eligibility stemming from COVID-19's effects on the 2020 season. Deng could take an injury redshirt return to California for a seventh season in 2022, and that might be his best option to try to improve his draft stock.

7/10/21: Deng has played some inside linebacker for California, but some NFL advanced scouts had list him as an outside linebacker. Unless his listed numbers are vastly exaggerated, he probably will fit best as a 3-4 outside linebacker as a pro. After coming to California from the junior college ranks, Deng had a productive 2019 season and was a solid run defender. He then played well in California's shortened 2020 season. Showing additional edge ability could help him to rise.
