Thursday is the big day. Stay with us as we wrap up our 2011 NFL Draft rankings.

Up next, the inside linebacker rankings.

One thing to note is our “Patriots Interest Scale.” Using our best judgment we have placed a ranking, 0-10, on whether or not the Patriots appear to have interest in the prospect.

  • 0 = the lowest level of interest.
  • 10 = the highest level of interest.
