The 2012 NFL draft saw some solid linebackers go in the first round, starting with Boston College's Luke Kuechly going to the Panthers as the ninth overall pick. There were three other linebackers that went in the first round last year including Bruce Irvin (15th overall), Shea McClellin (19th overall) and Dont'a Hightower (25th overall).
The 2013 linebacker class is equally as strong, if not stronger than that of 2012. The class is led by Notre Dame's Manti Te'o, whom many project will be a top-10 pick. The folks in Buffalo are probably licking their chops at the prospects of getting a playmaker like Te'o to help improve the Bills' surprisingly poor defense.
