Linebackers Drafted in the 2024 NFL Draft

Whenever we look back at successful teams, their linebackers tend to make an impact. Here's a list of every LB selected in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Linebackers are the quarterbacks of the defense, and teams that invest early in the position are often rewarded. In that vein, it shouldn’t be surprising that the three teams that spent first-round capital on an LB last season all impressed (Houston Texans, Detroit Lions, and Philadelphia Eagles).

Obviously, not all of those teams relied heavily on their rookie, but the idea remains that valuing this position is something that smart teams do. Here’s a look at the linebackers selected in the 2024 NFL Draft.
