The Best MLB in the NFL

They call him "Mike." But he's not a person; he's a position. Mike stands for middle linebacker, the QB of an NFL defense.

Mike calls the defensive plays, reads the opposing team's formations, and offers support on both running and passing plays. It's easy to see why a great Mike is so highly coveted.

But who is the best middle linebacker right now?

As you can see from the poll below, the San Francisco 49ers have an embarrassment of richest at middle linebacker with both NaVarro Bowman and Patrick Willis.

Carolina Panthers MLB Luke Kuechly is the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year. He led the league with 156 tackles last year.

Veteran Kansas City Chief Derrick Johnson, and youngster Buffalo Bills Kiko Alonzo, might not get as much publicity as the others, but both are game changers!

Who do you think is the best?
