 There were (24) OLB's Drafted in 2008
Bengals 2019 Draft History
1 9 9  Keith Rivers OLB Southern Cal
 Draft Scout Says: While the Bengals would have preferred defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis fall to them, his former USC teammate Keith Rivers is a heckuva consolation prize. Rivers combination of instincts, size, and athletic ability gives Marvin Lewis the dynamic front seven defender he's lacked throughout his tenure in Cincinnati.
Lions 2019 Draft History
2 14 45  Jordon Dizon OLB Colorado
 Draft Scout Says: Last year the Lions surprised with the selection of Boise State safety Gerald Alexander. This year Jordon Dizon was the surprising Detroit pick of the second round. While he lacks the elite athleticism scouts are looking for, his production while at Colorado shows his ability. A few years ago was among the few to characterize Seattle's drafting of Lofa Tatupu as a strong pick. Dizon, like Tatupu lacks the size/speed numbers, but he ranks among the draft's most instinctive defenders and reliable open-field tacklers.
Jags 2019 Draft History
2 21 52  Quentin Groves OLB Auburn (From Bucs)
 Draft Scout Says: Jacksonville entered the draft needing a speed rusher. After aggressively moving up to get Derrick Harvey in the first round, the team went to the well again, securing another speedy SEC pass rusher in Groves. There isn't a team in the league that made a greater improvement in their pass rush than the Jaguars via the first day of the draft.
Patriots 2019 Draft History
3 15 78  Shawn Crable OLB Michigan (From Saints)
 Draft Scout Says: The Patriots are always looking for pass rush production from their outside linebackers, and in Crable, they added the Big Ten leader in tackles for loss. Crable lacks the bulk to hold up at the point of attack as well as preferred, but he certainly provides burst off the edge.
Eagles 2019 Draft History
3 17 80  Bryan Smith OLB McNeese State
 Draft Scout Says: One of the early reaches of the third round, the Eagles added outside linebacker Bryan Smith. Smith has the athleticism scouts are looking for and had been moving up the board, but with questions about his level of competition, he was viewed as a late round prospect, at best.
Steelers 2019 Draft History
3 25 88  Bruce Davis OLB UCLA
 Draft Scout Says: As the Steelers did last year with former Michigan standout LaMarr Woodley, the club may have struck OLB gold with Bruce Davis in the third round. Davis, a collegiate DE, struggled in making the transition to linebacker at the Senior Bowl practices, but has the athleticism to handle this move with time.
Lions 2019 Draft History
3 29 92  Cliff Avril OLB Purdue (From Cowboys)
 Draft Scout Says: Needing pure pass rushers, the Lions added a classic 'tweener in Cliff Avril in the third round. The latest in a long line of former Purdue defensive ends that come into the league and surprise as pass rushing DEs and OLBs, Avril enjoyed a strong week of practice at the Senior Bowl and at the Combine.
Texans 2019 Draft History
4 19 118  Xavier Adibi OLB Virginia Tech
Giants 2019 Draft History
4 24 123  Bryan Kehl OLB BYU
Titans 2019 Draft History
4 36 134  Stanford Keglar OLB Purdue (Compensatory)
Falcons 2019 Draft History
5 3 138  Robert James OLB Arizona State
Bills 2019 Draft History
5 14 147  Alvin Bowen OLB Iowa State
Falcons 2019 Draft History
5 21 154  Kroy Biermann OLB Montana (From Redskins)
Colts 2019 Draft History
5 28 161  Marcus Howard OLB Georgia
Cowboys 2019 Draft History
6 1 167  Erik Walden OLB Middle Tennessee State (Cowboys acquired pick and 6th-round pick in 2009 draft from Dolphins for NT Jason Ferguson and 6th-round pick in 2008 draft, February 29, 2008.)
Bucs 2019 Draft History
6 9 175  *Geno Hayes OLB Florida State (From Bears)
Steelers 2019 Draft History

Patriots 2019 Draft History

7 7 214  Larry Grant OLB Ohio State
Panthers 2019 Draft History
7 14 221  Hilee Taylor OLB North Carolina
Bears 2019 Draft History
