Big 12: Jaylan Ford, Texas: While teams that are looking for your classic middle linebacker will want Tommy Eichenberg, teams that want more of a coverage linebacker will like Jaylan Ford. In coverage, Ford shows good awareness and the speed to play sideline to sideline.

SEC: Trevin Wallace, Kentucky: Wallace is one of the better athletes in this class. At the NFL Combine, he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.51 seconds and also posted a 380-pound power clean.

Non-Power Five: Jackson Mitchell, UConn: One of the more productive linebackers in the 2024 NFL Draft is UConn’s Jackson Mitchell who has 438 career tackles. Despite this he didn’t receive an invite to the NFL Combine and at best will be a late-round draft pick.
