Linebackers 

The were twenty-one LBs selected in the 2021 draft, as follows:

Round 1 - 3

Round 2 - 3

Round 3 - 4

Round 4 - 3

Round 5 - 4

Round 6 - 2

Round 7 - 2

The 2021 LB draft was deep with some high caliber players, some even falling into Day 3. With ten guys selected in Rounds 1-3, you could argue that it was one of the more respectable drafts we've seen at the position.

The 2022 LB draft does not have as much top-tier talent as 2021 had, but I think its water runs deeper. There a quite a few guys on the list below that may fall to Day 3, but will be able to compete right away and end up making the squad.
