ESPN's Mel Kiper has released his latest big board and I thought it would be interesting to take a look at his top five inside linebackers. Of course, we can't know whether this will still be a need for the Eagles come draft day, but we can agree that is right now.
Luke Kuechly *6-3, 225
Vontaze Burfict *6-3, 245
Don'ta Hightower *6-4, 260
Audie Cole 6-5, 239
Mychal Kendricks 6-1, 240
Kiper says that it's a top heavy class.
A solid pairing at the top, both Kuechly and Burfict are well-known among evaluators and should crack the first round. Both have a ton of experience and will be able to step in, make calls and help teams immediately. I'm glad to see Hightower is back in this picture after he suffered a knee injury that kept him out of action in 2010.
