ESPN On Top Linebacker Targets In Free Agency

ESPN's Matt Williamson, who also works for Scouts Inc, ranked the top 50 players due to hit free agency this week. Obviously, we're always interested in linebackers, so where's what he had to say about a few potential Eagles targets.

5. LB Stephen Tulloch: One of the best middle linebackers in the game and improving yearly, Tulloch will be more sought after than many fans realize. He covers ground, is a punishing downhill force and keeps getting better as a coverage player. Detroit needs to bring this guy back, but a team like Philadelphia might have something to say about that.

22. LB Curtis Lofton: A foundation of Atlanta's defense and possessing the skill set to play in either a 4-3 or 3-4, Lofton seems destined to return to Atlanta as a leader of the defense. But the Falcons do have huge decisions to make with their spending and inside linebacker isn't a premium position.

23. LB David Hawthorne: Although not a household name, Hawthorne is an active and productive linebacker. He can line up in multiple spots on the second level and could fit either a 3-4 or 4-3 defense, which makes him quite marketable.
