With three effective starting linebackers in Jerod Mayo, Brandon Spikes, and Dont’a Hightower, the New England Patriots may be unlikely to draft a linebacker high in this month’s 2013 NFL Draft.

This year’s Rose Bowl between the Stanford Cardinal and the Wisconsin Badgers presents some interesting matchups involving NFL Draft prospects, most notably when Wisconsin has possession of the football.

Stanford’s linebackers, Chase Thomas and Shayne Skov, also project as first or second-day picks.

Additionally, the Cardinal have some offensive talent of their own, most notably tight end Zach Ertz, a first or second-round pick, and running back Stepfan Taylor, a likely mid-round selection who may be able to sneak into the second day.
