Tahir Whitehead, previously the Lions best LB, is now an Oakland Raider. Whitehead has over 240 combined tackles in the past two seasons, and the Lions will need someone to step up to fill that production. Enter Jarrad Davis. The 2017 First Rounder was solid during his rookie year, and gathered a respectable 65 tackles in 14 games. Davis will look to take a huge leap in 2018, and has the talent to be a 100+ tackler in the near future.

Projected Stats: 95 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 1 interception

Runner Up: BJ Goodson, LB, New York Giants
