Derek Akunne is an undrafted rookie that could become the third linebacker to make the team since 2013. Akunne would join Paul Worrilow and Joplo Bartu as the other two and has done a great job thus far. Akunne led the team in tackles in the first preseason game Akunne most likely wont make the 53-man roster, but will likely win a practice squad spot for his great showing in the preseason.
