Duckhunter made a post, and it made sense to me. He said that we have had only 3 'good' LB's in recent memory, and we would plug in somebody, and be good. I agree.
I would say that: Jasper, Shaq, and Lance Laury were pretty, to very good.
I would add whichever one of The Fighting Lindsey Brothers that played LB to the 'pretty good' group.
Who else? Spurs don't count.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
Body Bag was good considering the lack of coaching he received.
underrated : Sapp
forgot about Norwood. Sapp was good.
Who was Bodybag?

Lance Laury. Dustin Lindsey (when he wasn't in trouble), Jap, Norwood, Cliff Matthews lined up as a LB his frosh year, and was solid, MI6 (a great lineman, sure, but if he's left at LB, I think he would've been great there, too...hell, he probably would've been great at any position you put him at on the field).
George Strait-Entertainer of a Lifetime
He was good. Him, and Rod Wilson were borderline very good.
I have never seen anyone that could jump on a pile like ole' Shane Burnham. He would be the last one on the pile after someone got tackled, but he would be on it. That counts for something, I don't know what, but it counts
Dustin Lindsey was good. As I remember it, he was good anyways. I don't know why he couldn't start for many teams in the SEC.
Does Ricardo Hurley ring a bell??
Was Hurley's career even as good as Paulk's? We're not talking about 'good recruits'.
Norwood, Kenny harney, jasper
Ricardo Hurley did not live up to his 5 star rating. He was an average LB. Lance Laury was a walk-on and had a better career than Hurley.
Just being sarcastic. Pretty much a bust. 5 star and #1 LB in the country. Think he had 3 or 4 different DC's..just didn't pan out..
How many SEC titles do we have in the last 10 years?
Please take this Old Carolina ish elsewhere
The correct answer would be one. We have had one 1st team SEC LB. One. That's Jap Brinkley. To think that any of these other guys were great LB's is "old Carolina" thinking. Bama and LSU have a JB or two on their team every year.
Norwood was a DE. Don't consider him a LB.

This is flawed logic. What you're saying here is, unless you're 1st team All-SEC, you're not good. Well, that means we had exactly one "good" player on our defense this year. By your reasoning, DJ isn't good. Taylor? No good. Sutton? Nope.
The fact is, there are tons of good players across the conference. All good players can't be 1st team All-SEC, which is ridiculous.
We've had some solid linebackers over the past ten years. Not as many as many of us would've liked, but there have been some.
Oh yeah, and Norwood's 1st Team All-American senior season? He was a LB. That is not arguable. Geathers and Taylor split time at one DE, Cliff Matthews manned the other side. EW was our WLB. That is fact.
in no particular order Kalimba, Harney, Norwood, Jap, Wadley, Laurey, Shaq
Aside from Laury, they were all three stars or less, btw.
