Scouting The Linebackers: Class of 2011
Here's a look at the top senior linebacker prospects entering the 2011 season:
Bruce Carter, North Carolina His read/react instincts and explosiveness allows Carter to blow up plays. He also was disruptive on special teams, leading the nation with a remarkable five blocked kicks. Carter returned to Raleigh to improve his all-around game and become a more complete player defending the pass, stuffing the run and applying pressure on the quarterback.
Greg Jones, Michigan State - A four-year starter, Jones has led the team in tackles each season since his freshman year. His instincts and experience are unparalleled, which should make for a smooth transition to the pros. Jones reportedly received a third round grade from the NFL Advisory Committee before opting to return for his senior season. Scouts
