The 2020 NFL Draft class is absolutely loaded with talent, and linebacker is no exception. With so many highly-touted prospects likely to cloud the mid-to-late first round, this abundance of talent can make it hard to nail down which players will be going off the board, and in what order.

However, thanks to the NFL Draft prop bet odds, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook, we can get a much clearer picture on exactly how these prospects stack up against one another when comparing their odds to be the first LB selected, as well as their projected over/under position in the draft. With that in mind, here's a look at the top linebackers in this year's draft class as ranked by those collective odds.
