Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton called ILB Craig Robertson the "pleasant surprise" of Cleveland's offseason program.

Projected to start adjacent to D'Qwell Jackson, Robertson has some Wesley Woodyard to his game. "A young, athletic backer, who is savvy," Horton described. "When I came here, I wasn’t sure how he would be on picking things up, but he’s been everything I wanted. That’s my little ace in the hole I hope."

Browns ILB Craig Robertson remains in the "driver's seat" to start opposite D'Qwell Jackson.

Robertson was considered the favorite even before the Browns didn't address inside linebacker in the draft, so his position has only gotten stronger. Robertson ran with the first team throughout OTAs. A 2012 undrafted free agent, Robertson played 628 snaps last season, grading out negatively in Pro Football Focus' ratings but flashing terrific range as a sort of poor man's Wesley Woodyard. He'll be pushed by Tank Carder and L.J. Fort in camp.

Browns LB Craig Robertson is "getting the first crack" at the starting inside linebacker job next to D'Qwell Jackson.

Jackson is locked in, but second-year LBs Robertson and James-Michael Johnson will compete for the other spot. Robertson appeared in all 16 games as a rookie, recording 93 tackles, one sack, and two interceptions. Johnson started eight games in 2012 before ending the season on injured reserve with a minor knee injury. JMJ is a thumper; Robertson excels in coverage.
