Jarrad Davis is my #1 ILB right now. Skai Moore is my top rated OLB.

I'm being cautious with him right now, but Jalen Reeves-Maybin has an insane amount of potential.

Reuben Foster is fun to watch. He lays the hammer.

My favorite ILB is Raekwon McMillan. He's a well rounded beast.

Favorite OLB is Jalen Reeves-Maybin, definitely needs to put on a little weight at the NFL level but he is a beast with potential through the roof. Seems like a better version of Darron Lee that can rush the passer and shed blocks.

Zach Cunningham from Vandy seems like a good one

I like him. Plays fast and violent and plays the pass well.

Reuben Foster and his concussion issues scare me. I think he has had 4 or 5 already.

Kendell Beckwith is the guy that will remind many of Reggie Ragland. Ragland is stronger at the POA but Beckwith is better in coverage.

Who are the 3 or 4 LBs that will emerge as sub 4.5 guys? There are a couple every year.

What are you talking about? He only has 1 concussion that I can see and that was from A-Day in 2014 when he tried to tackle Kenyan Drake. I believe Saban labeled it a "slight concussion".

He has missed time with stingers cause of the way he tackles, but going into the 2015 he worked on cleaning up his tackling technique.

He was knocked out twice during practice. He was a horrible tackler but huge hitter. Do more research and you can find it. IIRC, it was around 2012-2013 and he made a ST tackle and the announcers brought up his concussion history. This was all pre concussion awareness and people just laughed it off.

The Alabama trio - Tim Williams, Reuben Foster and Ryan Anderson are awesome.

Also Kendall Beckwith.

Found it. Now that brings the total up to 3.

Truthfully, I doubt we know the full facts on any guys concussion history, especially the further back in the past you go. Some that happen in practice like Foster suffered never would have been known if CJ Mosley hadn't mentioned it to reporters when describing how hard of a hitter he is.
