Lavonte David and the Top 10 Linebackers of the Big Ten

Nebraska's Lavonte David is considered the best linebacker in the Big Ten.

Nebraska senior Lavonte David enters the 2011 season with impressive credentials.  He broke former Cornhusker linebacker Barrett Ruud's team record with 152 tackles last year.

He represents the best of a Big Ten crew of linebackers that lacks a first- or second-team All-Big player from last year.  It does feature some talented underclassmen, including two linebackers apiece for Penn State and Wisconsin.

Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota and Ohio State join Nebraska with one representative on the top 10 list.  Indiana, Michigan State, Northwestern and Purdue failed to place a linebacker on the list.
