I've been reading a lot of PFF lately. They highlight a lot of good stats. Including a list of linebackers I just read up on. Apparently and I'm sure we all know this tackling is huge for a linebacker. So they ranked these linebackers in this article by not just tackling but tackling efficiency.
They only have 87 linebackers total that have over 200 snaps at the position and they mostly looked at ILB's and OLB's in 3/4 schemes. Well in the list of top 20 vs bottom 20 guess where the lone Vikings Player who could be on that list is? He's ranked number 86 out of 87... And leads with most missed tackles. Just adds more credence to me saying Please bring in a new linebacker. In fact that might just be more important then a new DT. At least our's are ranked in the bottom of the league.
So for the draft where should we pick a new ILB?
