Inside linebacker hasn’t been a position of strength overall for the Browns since 1999. They’ve had some solid players and some very good players, but they’ve lacked a superstar. Still, in Browns fans minds the choices were pretty clear. D’Qwell Jackson scored over 2700 first place votes while Andra Davis came in a distant second with 661. Davis crushed the competition with 1568 second place votes with Jackson taking 720 and Chris Gocong scoring 485 votes.
Third place was closer as Browns fans tried to sort out the best of the rest. Gocong had the most third place votes with 898. Andra Davis had 560. Dwayne Rudd had 547. Wali Rainer beat Earl Holmes 409-404.
Outside linebacker was also a pretty clear choice for Browns fans. Jamir Miller crushed the competition for first with 2280 votes compared to Wimbley’s 528. The second place voting was clearly taken by Wimbley with over 1200 while Fujita (690,) McGinest (473,) and Matt Roth (466,) tried to catch up. Third place votes went to Fujita, Roth, Wimbley and McGinest in that order. In the end, if you were starting a team with these players in their prime, you could do a lot worse than having Jamir Miller and Kamerion Wimbley pressuring the QB from the outside.
