2013 NFL Draft outside linebacker rankings

Dale Zanine-US PRESSWIRE

The outside linebacker position can be a tough one to evaluate for the NFL Draft. A few of the top prospects like Barkevious Mingo and Brandon Jenkins mostly played with a hand in the dirt. Jarvis Jones doesn't have a lot of experience at linebacker either and Anthony Barr is in his first year at the position in college.

The surest player at outside linebacker may be Khaseem Greene of Rutgers. He's knocked back some because Jones and Mingo are more physically gifted, but Greene is a tackling machine who is a true three-down linebacker. The same can be said of Florida's Jelani Jenkins and Penn State's Gerald Hodges.

One player who could really take off during the offseason process is Jamie Collins of Southern Mississippi. Collins started his career at safety before shifting to linebacker and then end in 2012. He's a good athlete who wasn't talked about this season while playing on a winless team.
