There’s a lot of talent and versatility to be had at the outside linebacker position.  The position offers a good assortment of terrific 3-4 pass rushers with a blend of three down defenders that can play the run or cover the pass.  The inside/middle spot offers some talented prospects at the top but you better grab one fast as the talent quickly thins out.
