Browns fans think Jamie Collins should become a rotational player if Mychal Kendricks were to start

The results from our polls on the linebacker position are in.

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

During our training camp preview on the linebacker position for the Cleveland Browns, we asked two poll questions to our fans.

In Part 1 of our preview, we asked who fans which player should become the “rotational” player among the team’s top four linebackers if Mychal Kendricks were to start. 59% of the fans went with Jamie Collins, either due to his injuries last year or some of the lackluster play he’s had, despite the fact that he is supposed to be the team’s most high-impact linebacker. 24% voted for Christian Kirksey, while only 18% voted for Joe Schobert.


If the Browns decide to "start" Mychal Kendricks, which of these three players should become the "rotational player?"

In Part 2 of our preview, we wanted to know which player between James Burgess, Genard Avery, and B.J. Bello should see action on defense this year, if only one could be chosen. The lead vote-getter was Avery at 57%, followed by Burgess at 42%. Poor Bello only had 1% of the vote.


Which player will see the most action on defense this year with the Browns?

In Part 3 of our preview, we asked which of the three remaining linebackers on the roster fans would be most willing to get a shot to stay on the roster. 84% went with Justin Currie, perhaps due to familiarity. 9% voted for Jermaine Grace, while the remaining 7% voted for Brady Sheldon.


If only one of these linebackers could make the roster, who would you keep?
