Scouts Inc. has ranked the linebackers from all 12 playoff teams, and the Cowboys sit atop the rankings, while a pair of AFC teams round out the top three. DeMarcus Ware and Greg Ellis are prototypical 3-4 outside linebackers who come off the edge with premier speed and acceleration. Ware and Ellis have 14 and 12.5 sacks, respectively. On the inside, the Cowboys are led by Bradie James, who has a rare combination of athleticism, instincts and intelligence, and who led the team with 101 tackles during the regular season.
