Football - Ranking ACC Linebackers

A review of the ACC LB cores, with GT listed 7th overall:

7. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Question marks on the defensive line could make the linebackers' jobs that much tougher this season. Senior Gerris Wilkinson, a converted lineman, will hold down the fort in the middle. He's considered an All-ACC and even a potential All-America choice after wracking up 119 stops last season. KaMichael Hall and Philip Wheeler are both quick and hard-hitting, and should get the most reps at outside backer. Hall had 4.5 sacks a year ago.
