Linebackers: Terrell Suggs, C.J. Mosley, Elvis Dumervil, Josh Bynes, Daryl Smith, Courtney Upshaw, Arthur Brown, John Simon, Albert McClellan, Pernell McPhee

McPhee has been a one man wrecking crew this preseason, consistently getting pressure on opposing quarterbacks even when double teamed.  Brown has regressed a bit, but is still safe for another year thanks to draft status.  He just might be limited to special teams.  McClellan is a core special teamer and that earns him a spot.

The coaching staff loves Upshaw and he is a talented edge setter, a role that the team values.  Bynes has had another solid offseason and started in place of Smith when he missed some time with a minor injury.  Simon has played fairly well but likely won’t have a role on defense this season.
