Now I take a look at the LB position and sort them out amongst six tiers.  Keep in mind just because a particular LB is in tier 3 doesn’t make them a LB3, it’s just more so how they fit amongst those they’re grouped with and what they’ll provide for your roster.  Then, you have those LB’s listed in Tier 6 and their normally rookies trying to make a name, sleepers or your usual LB4/5 value and of course some could rise.  My tiers also help you see how much LB depth there is entering 2013, so if you miss out on those studs in tier 1 there’ll be tons of potential and upside in the other tiers.  Here are my views on each tier I have.

  • Tier 01: The studs, the elites the ones who give you just about everything
  • Tier 02: They rack up tackles and scratching the tier 01 surface, LB1 capability too
  • Tier 03: Lot of potential and all are strong LB2’s for your starters
  • Tier 04: Handful are on the verge of becoming LB2’s, others are savvy vets LB3’s
  • Tier 05: strong LB3 value in here and a couple risers
  • Tier 06: the sleeper list and a bunch of pass rushers
