Green Bay Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk has caught a lot of flak for never living up to his status as a top-five draft pick, but the 30-year-old had arguably the best season of his eight-year career in 2013. Not only did Hawk top 115 total tackles for the second straight year, but Hawk also chipped in a career-high five sacks, ranked among the NFL's top 20 inside linebackers at Pro Football Focua and finished the year as a top 25 linebacker in Fantasy Sharks Default IDP Scoring. Say what you will about the former Ohio State star, but the fact remains Hawk is the closest thing the Packers have to an every-down linebacker, and another season of IDP LB3 production would hardly be a shock.
