Kirksey was on his way to another strong top 15-20 linebacker season before his campaign was cut short in week 9 due to a hamstring injury. Competition from Joe Schobert and less tackle opportunity in general may keep Kirksey out of the top 12 this year, but he should be a solid LB2 nevertheless.Schobert has thrived in the tackle department in recent years due to the Browns defense seeing a ton of field time and relatively little tackle competition outside of Christian Kirksey. Although he's a scrappy player, there are some reasons for concern. First off, the Browns are expected to be much improved this season which will likely mean less opportunity for Schobert. Second, a most importantly, rookie third-round selection Sione Takitaki has impressed during camp so far and is rumored to be pushing Schobert for starting time. Cleveland is a young and rising team, so it would make sense for them to gamble a bit and go with the upside of a younger talent, so this makes Schobert a fairly big avoid for me in drafts.
