Summary

Darius Leonard is once again in contention to finish as the best IDP linebacker. He was unable to start for three games last year due to injury, but managed to still post 121 combined tackles, 71 of which were solo. While Anthony Walker and Bobby Okereke are both serviceable options next to him, they generally do not win the foot race to the ball over Leonard. Perhaps the presence of DeForest Buckner negatively impacts his overall tackle numbers, but there is still a path to a top-five finish even factoring in the improved front. (May 8)
