Chris Steuber /

Although there's only one outside linebacker guaranteed to go in the first round, there's still talent to be had.

1. Keith Rivers, USC, 6-2, 236

Rivers had an outstanding career at USC and was a consistent performer for the Trojans. He's a great leader and commands respect in the huddle. He's a versatile defender and has the ability to play all three linebacker positions, as he did at the Senior Bowl. He showed intelligence picking up the defensive scheme and was smooth on the field during practices in Mobile. Entering the Combine, Rivers is the draft's top linebacker, and with another impressive showing he will solidify his status as a top-15 selection.
