Linebacker Chris Kirksey

College: Iowa

Taken: 71st overall, third round.

The skinny: Can play inside or outside, and really helped himself with a strong Senior Bowl week. ... Size (235 pounds) may seem small for inside linebacker, but that is a trend as more teams ask ILBs to be more involved in coverage. ... Then again, he and Seattle’s Kam Chancellor are the same size, and Chancellor is a safety. ... Forced five fumbles in his college career. The Browns as a team that forced eight fumbles all of last season. They were the only NFL team with fewer than 10. Twenty-eight individual players forced at least three fumbles in 2013. ... Had 13.5 tackles for a loss in his college career.
