Reuben Foster scored a 9 on his Wonderlic Exam

Bob McGinn of the Journal Sentinel is an animal at finding out information before the draft.  He talked to scouts and asked them to list the best linebackers in order. He wanted to know their top 5, the best received 5 points, when the 5th best received one.  Here are the results for all four linebacker spots.

Inside linebacker in a 3-4: Reuben Foster, 33 points (five firsts); Jarrad Davis, 28 (two); Zach Cunningham, 15; Haason Reddick, 12; Kendell Beckwith, nine; Raekwon McMillan, four; Alex Anzalone, three, and Duke Riley, one.

Outside linebacker in a 3-4: Myles Garrett, 35 (seven firsts, unanimous); Charles Harris, 19; Takk McKinley, 12 ½; Tim Williams, eight; T.J. Watt, 7 ½; Derek Barnett, six; Tyus Bowser and Solomon Thomas, four; Jordan Willis, three; Taco Charlton and Reddick, two, and Ryan Anderson and Dawuane Smoot, one.

Middle linebacker in a 4-3: Foster, 39 (seven firsts); McMillan, 20 ½ (one); Davis, 17; Beckwith, 16; Anzalone, 11 ½; Cunningham, nine; Anthony Walker, three, and Blair Brown, Ben Gedeon, Keith Kelsey and Calvin Munson, one.

Outside linebacker in a 4-3: Reddick, 31 (four firsts); Anderson, 15; Davis, 14 (two); Williams, 13; Watt, 11 ½ (one); Cunningham, 10; McKinley, eight (one); Bowser, seven; Riley, three; Harris, Jalen Reeves-Maybin and Derek Rivers, two; Jayon Brown, one, and Vince Biegel, one-half.
