- Devin White, Jr. LSU – He had a monster season and was likely the best defensive player in the country. He made 133 tackles. 4.5 sacks per game, and picked off a pass. He is listed at 255 pounds and runs well for his size. He is the anchor for the Tigers defense.
- Shaquille Quarterman, Jr. Miami – He is a big guy at 240 pounds that finished his freshman season with 84 tackles in which ten of them were for a loss. Last year he made seven tackles for a loss with 83 stops. He will be hearing his name at the NFL Draft in the early rounds.
- Mack Wilson, Jr. Alabama – He is a 6’2”, 237-pound beast that helped lead the Crimson Tide to the National Championship. He picked off four passed an average 2.5 tackles for a loss and scored in the big game over Clemson. He, again, will be the rock in the middle of the Alabama defense.
- Joe Bachie, Jr, Michigan State – He was everywhere last year. What did he do? He put up numbers that included 100 tackles with 3.5 sacks, 8.5 tackles for loss, three picks, and two forced fumbles. He has the potential to lead the Big Ten in several categories.
- T.J. Edwards, Sr. Wisconsin – The Big Ten has another linebacker that does it all in Edwards. At 248 pounds, he is amazingly consistent with over 80 tackles in his three seasons with the Badgers. The career numbers are staggering with 26 tackles for a loss, five sacks, 254 tackles, seven picks, and one score. He has his own way in the Big Ten.
- K’Lavon Chaisson, Soph, LSU – He has become unstoppable and will likely be the second best linebacker on his own team. In his first collegiate season, he had 27 tackles and 4.5 sacks for a loss. He is oozing with potential. He may not be a star before the season begins but he will be when it ends.
- Josh Allen, Sr. Kentucky – He is huge at 6-5, 260-pounds that will be an early draft pick next year in the NFL draft. He has 65 tackles and seven sacks last year.
- Cameron Smith, Sr. USC – The Trojans have a good one in Smith as he had 19 tackles for a loss and 273 tackles in his career. At 250-pounds, he is usually in beat mode.
- Khalil Hodge, Sr. Buffalo – He has some size and loss to hit. In his first two years on the field has amassed 276 tackles and had 13.5 tackles for a loss. He had 19 stops last season when facing the Huskies of Northern Illinois.
- Te’von Coney, Sr. Notre Dame – He came up with 116 tackles with three sacks a and 13 tackles for loss. His playing weight is listed at 238-pounds. He will chase everything.
- Joe Dineen, Sr. Kansas – It takes something special to be noted as a football player when part of a poor Jayhawks team. Last year he registered 137 tackles with 25 tackles for a loss.
- Porter Gustin, Sr. USC – He is a huge player at 6-5, 255-pounds but is a monster on the pass rush. He was hurt a bit last year but in 2016 he has 13 tackles for a loss of his 68 total tackles. If he is healthy, he will be motivated to get to the next level.
