Updated 2012 NFL Draft outside linebacker rankings

The biggest mover of any position on these updates may be Nebraska outside linebacker Lavonte David. He's been extremely impressive this season – especially lately. At this point, he's probably worked himself into the second round due to his athleticism and instincts.

The top three remains the same, though Zach Brown of North Carolina and Travis Lewis of Oklahoma haven't played quite as well as expected. Check out the rankings after the jump and let me know what you think.
