Best 4-3 SLB?
 
You don't really hear a lot about SLB's. Personally, I like Audie Cole a lot. He looks like he'll be a very solid contributor at the next level. Who do you guys like?

Mychal Kendricks and Keenan Robinson look like they might be able to play the position. Perhaps Bobby Wagner as well. Cole is there too.

Kuechly can be a Pro Bowler at all 3 LB positions in the NFL IMO, but at SLB I'd say Audie Cole might be the best SLB in the 4-3 and you can likely get him somewhere in the 2nd. I also like Keenan Robinson and Vontaze Burfict as possible 3rd/4th round SLB prospects. Bruce Irvin could potentially be a Von Miller type LB in a similar system at the SLB and should be off the board anywhere from the 2nd-4th round.

As for WLB, I love Zach Brown as a possible late 1st/early 2nd round prospect. I also like Lavonte David, Bobby Wagner and Mychal Kendricks as 2nd/3rd round prospects that could play at WLB as well.

I know next to nothing when it comes to these guys, so could either one of you explain why NFL.com would have Cole ranked as a 6th rounder? http://www.nfl.com/combine/profiles/...ole?id=2532814

The Bills are in desperate need of a SLB

Top LBs at each position:

WILL: Lavonte David
MLB: Luke Keuchly
SAM: Either Bobby Wagner or Demario Davis.

Cole was at the Senior Bowl and the only positive things he did all week were weigh in and look like Clay Matthews III. I just don't think he's a great football player.

Not everybody shows up at the Senior Bowl. I wouldn't completely write him off just based on that.

How is a 5'11" linebacker going to cover a TE?

I've liked Keenan Robinson of Texas all year. Nice frame - tracked down RG3 in the Baylor game - a play which I'm surprised hasn't given him more coverage. looked good over the TE at the Senior Bowl. Didn't run that well at the Combine, but plays faster than he timed. Read and react was inconsistent a bit early in the year in the new Texas defense - but improved moving forward. I like him in the 3rd round - can't say much higher because of the slow 40 time.

Upshaw.
