Fan perception: what we learned about the Browns' outside linebackers heading into training camp

NFL: Cleveland Browns-OTA Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Here is a summary of each of our training camp preview polls for the Cleveland Browns’ outside linebackers:


Our first poll was a two-part question mixed into one, so let’s decipher the results. 57% of the fans say that Emmanuel Ogbah should start over Nate Orchard, while 43% are in favor of Orchard starting over him. I’m in Ogbah’s camp too, but the support is divided pretty evenly. 86.5% of fans believe that Barkevious Mingo will still make the final roster this year. [Read Part 1 of the OLB Preview]


Very few fans (11%) view Joe Schobert as strictly an outside linebacker. 46% of fans feel we should see him mostly at inside linebacker, while the final 43% believe the team should give him an even mix of reps at both outside and inside linebacker. Schobert’s role will be a question heading into camp, but we should have a better idea of how he’ll be used after the second preseason game. [Read Part 2 of the OLB Preview]
