The NFL Draft will take place May 8-10 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Over a two-week span, will help you get to know the prospects who could wear burgundy and gold, play for an NFC East Rival or become the steal of your 2014 Fantasy Football draft. Here are the top five inside linebackers and outside linebackers, according to NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock:

Inside Linebackers

1.) C.J. MOSLEY, Alabama (6-2, 234 pounds) Bottom Line:
Smart, instinctive, fast-flowing, every-down linebacker capable of manning any position in a "40" front or steering a defense from the weak side in a "30" front, where he starred for a national-championship defense as a junior and carried the Tide as a senior… more.

2.) CHRIS BORLAND, Wisconsin (5-11, 248 pounds) Bottom Line:
Short, active, athletic, instinctive tackling machine who will have to overcome physical limitations to establish himself as a dependable, long-term starter… more.

3.) SHAYNE SKOV, Stanford (6-2, 245 pounds) Bottom Line:
A ballhawking, two-down Mike linebacker with a natural feel for the game… more.

4.) MAX BULLOUGH, Michigan State (6-3, 249 pounds) Bottom Line:
Big, tough, experienced, durable, competitive Mike linebacker who was a heart-and-soul type for the stingiest defense in college football… more.

5.) PRESTON BROWN, Louisville (6-1, 251 pounds) Bottom Line:
Aggressive, high-collision 'Mike' linebacker best paired with a demanding position coach who will extract the most from him… more.

Outside Linebackers

1.) KHALIL MACK, Buffalo (6-3, 251 pounds) Bottom Line:
A havoc-wreaking rush linebacker with the burst and acceleration to excel as a right defensive end in a "40" front… more.

2.) ANTHONY BARR, UCLA (6-5, 255 pounds) Bottom Line:
 A highly disruptive, athletic specimen with the pass-rush potential to effortlessly emerge as a double-digit sack producer… more.

3.) RYAN SHAZIER, Ohio State (6-1, 237 pounds) Bottom Line:
The Big Ten's leading tackler, Shazier flies around the field and his unique athletic ability stands out… more.

4.) TRENT MURPHY, Stanford (6-5, 250 pounds) Bottom Line:
As a base end in an even front or a LOLB in an odd front, Murphy's instincts, motor and toughness are what define his success… more.

5.) MARCUS SMITH, Louisville (6-3, 251 pounds) Bottom Line:
A high school quarterback turned pass rusher who broke out with 14.5 sacks as a senior… more.

Thursday: Cornerbacks
