With a strong starting linebacker corps that will almost certainly feature Paul Posluzsny, Daryl Smith and Russell Allen starting Week 1 against the Vikings, there is still lackluster depth at the position. Rookies linebackers that can also contribute on special teams will have a legitimate shot at making the roster, due to the depth. According to Gene Frenette of the Florida Times-Union, there are four rookies at the position that are battling for two, possibly three, roster spots.
Brandon Marshall, the fifth round selection of the Jaguars in the 2012 NFL Draft, is in a battle with three undrafted free agents (Joshua Jones, J.K. Schaffer and Julian Stanford) for the roster spots.
With Clint Session on the physically unable to perform list, the opportunity for another roster spot opened and considering Kyle Bosworth is the only other veteran linebacker on the roster, it wouldn't be surprising at all if three of the rookies made the roster, with the stipulation that the third can perform well enough on special teams.
