Christian Kirksey leads Browns' inside linebacking group
Cleveland Browns inside linebackers Christian Kirksey and Demario Davis are "essentially written in pen" for the starting jobs, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Backups Tank Carder, Justin Tuggle and rookie Scooby Wright fill out the depth chart. Even in a timeshare with Craig Robertson last season, Kirksey racked up 63 tackles, three and a half sacks and a forced fumble across 16 games (five starts). A 2014 third-round pick, Kirksey has a shot at a big leap if he can nail down a three-down role.
The 2015 Browns ranked 21st in the league in Adjusted Defensive Passing Net Expected Points (NEP).
