Round: 4 Pick: 2

Dansby is a proven veteran linebacker and holding the middle ground in a revamped Miami defense. If he stays healthy, I don't see why he can't rack up a ton of tackles like has for the last several seasons.
Not a whole lot to be honest. He missed 3 games last season, but played every game in 2008 and 2009. Downside I see as his 2010 season, which isn't terrible.
I went looking for another quality LB and found him in Dansby. I anticipate him putting up stats like 2008 and 2009 if he stays healthy, so it's a good pick here.

Top 20 LB for the past couple years. I feel the move to Miami could actually help his stats a little.
There are better upside LBs at this point in the draft... but my second LB pick here might wind up being my #1.
Not much to say... Dansby is good.

consistent tackler, young/up and coming offense
not too many possible top end LB's left, glad to get him on the comeback

His offense is nothing special, while tackles have been trending upwards. The D Line has also seen some turnover in the off-season, which means that previous performers will be replaced with inexperience. Fewer tackles by the D Line means more opportunities for the LBs.
The apparent end of the Leinart experiment, in favor of the steady Warner, could put a dent in his field time.

I'm a big fan of this kid. Had a promising 2005 season, with 201 points, but was slowed by injuries in 2006. Even so, finished with 162 points in 14 games. Even better, he had 109 points in the final 7 games after the bye! Once he got healthy he went on a tear. Is young and improving, and if he maintains last season's second half production, he should be a great LB2, and I got him as my LB3 in the 5th round.
As with Ernie Sims, his D Line support will be spotty at best, so his playmaking opportunities will take a hit. Even with that, he's got great upside if he can stay healthy.
The middle rounds are vital to add depth to your most important positions - S and LB. At this point, I now have 3 LB who have the opportunity to finish in the top 20 at their position. Sitting pretty, time to start filling out my other roster needs.
