Updated 2012 NFL Draft middle linebacker rankings

New, comments

Vontaze Burfict has had as disappointing of a season as any player this season. Because of that, it was impossible to consider him the top player at the position. In fact, I nearly dropped him to fourth or fifth in the rankings.

Making his debut on the rankings is Arthur Brown of Kansas State. I didn't have him ranked before the season after he sat out 2010 following a transfer.
