Over the years, some of the greatest to ever play the game have been Middle Linebackers. According to “Bleacher Report,” the Top 10 Middle Linebackers in NFL history are: 10) Sam Mills, 9) Willie Lanier, 8) Chuck Bednarik, 7) Junior Seau, 6) Sam Huff, 5) Ray Nitschke, 4) Jack Lambert, 3) Mike Singeltary, 2) Dick Butkus, and 1) Ray Lewis. (For a list of the best current Middle Linebackers, see “Top 60 Inside Linebackers,” “The NFL's Best Inside Linebackers,”or “Inside Linebacker Rankings.”)
I would love to be able to tell you that many of these Middle Linebackers are also Middle Children, but from what I’ve been able to determine, that’s not the case. In fact, of the B/R All-Time Top 10 Middle Linebackers, only two are Middle Children -- four are the youngest, one the oldest, one is an only child (which makes him the oldest AND youngest), and two are unknown. So it seems the best Middle Linebackers of all time are mostly the babies of the family. Yes, I said it. Most of the best Middle Linebackers of all time are babies. Really BIG babies.
