There's a lot to like about the top of the 2012 inside linebacker class, especially when you consider recent draft history at the position.

The only true inside linebacker taken in the first round during the past four drafts is the Oakland Raiders' Rolando McClain, who was drafted eighth overall out of Alabama in 2010. What about Houston's Brian Cushing (15th, 2009) and New England's Jerod Mayo (10th, 2008), you might ask?
