Here's a list of ILBs and OLBs. How would you rank them in terms of pure value? C Barwin, OLB Cinn Limited experience on defense L English, OLB N Illinois Hasn't faced top competition C Sintim, OLB Virginia Mostly a rush LB. Not particularly good in coverage, for example. M Freeman, Ohio State Would likely be an ILB in a 34 D Beckwith, ILB LSU Again, likely an ILB in a 34 Paul Kruger, DE Utah Could quite possibly play both OLB and ILB in 34 defense. L Sidbury, DE Richmond Likely an OLB in 34 Cody Brown, DE Conn Likely a rush linebacker in 34 While quite a few prefer C Barwin, I'm not sure if he'd be my top pick even though he's very athletic. He only has around 1 year of experience playing defense at the college level. I'm not as keen on Sintim either. Doesn't appear to be a well rounded LB (from what I've read, at least). While he could fit in the defense quickly, I wonder if his upside is limited. I suppose I'd prefer either Kruger because of his versatility (can possibly play both inside and outside) and size (around 6'-5", 265 lbs), or M Freeman because I think he could play ILB fairly quickly if necessary. Also, I think Freeman may be more athletic than Beckwith. I don't know as much about L English, though most would probably rate him as the top dog. The other player I find intriguing is C Brown. Not sure where to rank him. I think he would do really well as a pass rush specialist in a year or two. Plus, he was extremely productive in college and against better competition than L English, for example. That said, I wish Brown was a tad bit bigger. (He's around 6-2 and 242 lbs.) How would you guys rate these guys in terms of best value for the Cowboys and our scheme?
