Guess who’s back?

Back again.

With some more NFL power rankings.

Because I’m your friend.

That’s right people. We are back with more NFL power rankings and today we are taking a look at the middle linebackers currently playing in a 3-4 defensive scheme. These guys are asked to do an awful lot in both the pass coverage area and in defending the run so let’s give them their proper respect, alright guys?

As always, depth charts are pulled from Rotoworld.com and rookies and guys who sat on the bench last season for different reasons are always ranked last.
