This week, we finished covering the defensive line position in our training camp previews. At the end of each preview, we include a poll to gauge fan feedback heading into the season.

In Part 1, we asked how many sacks Browns fans think DE Myles Garrett will have in 2020. Most fans (51%) think it’ll be between the 16-19 sack range, while 19% of fans think he’ll crack 20 sacks.

In Part 2, we asked two questions, starting with the expectations for third-year DE Chad Thomas. The vote was split evenly among the three options: 36% of fans don’t think he’ll make the final roster, while 34% think he’ll be about the same as last year. The remaining 30% are optimistic that he’ll be an improved player in 2020.
