Linebackers 

The were 24 LBs selected in the 2021 draft, as follows:

Round 1 - 2

Round 2 - 1

Round 3 - 7

Round 4 - 1

Round 5 - 2

Round 6 - 6

Round 7 - 5

The 2022 LB draft class had a very strong offering of talent. It's seldom that we see starter-level falling to Round 5, but we did. While Rounds 6 and 7 were mostly made up of some project players, I see some potential starters in that mix as well.

The 2023 LB draft class may not be as strong as the 2022 fold, but it runs very deep with talent. The middle rounds should have scatters of prospects taken, many of which will be able to contribute early.
