Bobby Wagner One Of NFL’s Top 10 Inside Linebackers
Former Seahawks scout turned NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks continues his ‘Bucky’s Best’ series with a look at the 10 best inside linebackers around the League. Third-year Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner, who has led the club in tackles in each of his first two seasons, comes in at No. 8 on Brooks’ list.
On Wagner, Brooks writes: “The ‘Legion of Boom’ secondary casts a large shadow over the rest of the Seahawks’ defense, but astute observers recognize Wagner’s key contributions to the NFL’s No. 1 defense. The 24-year-old is a destructive force in the middle, wreaking havoc on opponents with his speed, quickness and explosiveness. Wagner is a tackling machine with exceptional rush skills and underrated coverage ability. He can play a myriad of roles in the Seahawks’ aggressive scheme, allowing him to be a true stat-stuffer (120 tackles, five sacks and two interceptions in 2013).”
