2019 NFL Draft Linebacker Rankings: From The College Perspective

By

1. Devin White, LSU

6-0, 237: An all-around tackling machine, he’s got the production to go along with the tools and the talent.

The 286 career tackles and 28.5 tackles for loss were great, and he was going to be a first round pick no matter what, and then he ripped off a 4.4 at the combine and showed the explosiveness in his leaps.

With his speed comes the big-pop hitting ability to be an intimidating force when he gets to the ball. No, he’s not going to do too much as a pass defender, but that’s not what you’re paying for.

He’s the guy who sits on the inside of your linebacking corps and quarterbacks the entire defense. The great LSU defense was his from the spot on the inside, getting all over the field and playing more like a veteran who knew all the subtleties – he got in on everything.
