1. Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly racked-up an impressive 171 total tackles during the regular season last year.
2. Indianapolis Colts LB D'Qwell Jackson is a close second, with 167 total tackles last season, his first away from the Cleveland Browns.
3. Detroit Lions LB DeAndre Levy had 155 total tackles during the NFL season in 2014.
4. Baltimore Ravens LB C.J. Mosley (who used to win National Championships for Nick Saban at Alabama) had 147 total tackles last season.
5. New Orleans Saints LB Curtis Lofton tallied 145 total tackles last season, not that it helped the Saints to the playoffs or anything.
(5*) 6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Lavonte David also had 145 tackles during the 2014 NFL year.
7. C.J. Mosley’s teammate, Baltimore Ravens LB Daryl Smith, also had himself a great year, with 144 total tackles.
