Bobby Wagner graces list of Top 10 inside linebackers


Bobby Wagner One Of NFL’s Top 10 Inside Linebackers

Former Seahawks scout turned 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).”
