This week, we finished covering the linebacker 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 which pairing of two linebackers fans think are the most likely to see the most playing time this year. 87% of fans think Mack Wilson will be one of those two players. 46% think B.J. Goodson will be one of those two players. 41% think Sione Takitaki will be in the top two; and then lastly, only 24% think rookie Jacob Phillip will be in the top two.


The Browns will regularly have 2 or 3 linebackers on the field in Joe Woods’ defense. By midseason, which 2 linebackers do you think will be seeing the most playing time?

In Part 2, we asked about the other five linebackers on the roster and which one fans would like to see make the roster if only one could make it. Undrafted rookie Solomon Ajayi won with 35% of the vote, which goes to show you how unknown all the other players are, considering Ajayi is undrafted.


You can only have one of these guys on the 53-man roster. Who is it?
