Ranking the NFL: LBs and DBs

Due to a delay, I’ve decided to post the linebackers, cornerbacks, and safeties under one entry. Both linebackers and safeties are out of 36 points, and cornerbacks out of 48. You may notice that 3-4 teams tend to score well among linebacker rankings. That shouldn’t be too surprising since after all the 3-4 was created because teams had more quality linebackers than they did defensive linemen. Depth was real important for measuring cornerbacks, since due to the success of the Patriots last year with their multi-WR sets, having capable third and fourth corners has taken new importance than perhaps it has been in the past.

Why are the Falcons so low? Well in linebackers, it’s because of the lack of depth. Besides Nicholas there is no backup that has experience, and Nicholas is very limited. At cornerback, it’s because Brent Grimes is a projected starter. And although he’s impressed the Falcons coaches, it remains to be seen if he’ll be any good once the season starts. The Falcons essentially have a bunch of corners that are about on par with that of Jason Webster. And as far as safety goes, this is not an area of strength for the Falcons, although in relative terms we’re stronger there than many other parts of the roster.
