Jason Cole at Yahoo Sports! has another ranking out, and this time it is the NFL’s LB’s, and at right near the bottom of the list he has the Browns:
26. Cleveland: D’Qwell Jackson is really a terrific inside linebacker, but he’s a step below the really great guys at that spot, like Patrick Willis. Sadly, there isn’t much growth potential in Jackson’s game because he’s somewhat limited as an athlete. As for the rest, the Browns are much like Kansas City in that most of these guys will probably be gone by the time the team becomes good again. Scott Fujita has the best long-term chance, but he’s somewhat miscast as an outside linebacker in a 3-4. Matt Roth had six sacks in six games, but that was an aberration. Finally, Eric Barton is a solid inside linebacker, but much closer to the end than the beginning of his career.
