RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Chris Gocong.
The five-year pro has been solid since coming over to the Browns prior to the 2010 season. In his two years in Cleveland he's posted virtually identical stat lines for combined totals of 145 tackles, 5.5 sacks, six passes defensed, three forced fumbles, and three fumble recoveries. He heads into the 2012 season as the likely starter at outside linebacker and a low-end IDP fantasy option in deep leagues.
Gocong has bounced around between outside linebacker and defensive end-type roles since the Eagles drafted him out of Cal Poly in 2006, and this year he is expected to start at outside linebacker for Cleveland in the teamís new 4-3 scheme this year. He has the athleticism to make an impact, but the fact that last yearís 75-tackle season was a career high for Gocong means heís no more than a consideration for deep-league owners. The team lacks depth at linebacker and for now it's his spot to lose.
Will be a fixture on special teams and should be a contributor on defense, although is unlikely to start right away as the Browns feel they have depth at that position. Still, he will get work both inside and out and could end up playing himself into a starting position if guys like Eric Barton or Matt Roth struggle early on.
Gocong is a starter at linebacker, but he typically leaves the field during passing situations.
Starting strong side linebacker.
After Dhani Jones' release, Gocong has been named the Eagles' starting strong side linebacker for 2007. He'll need to help shore up a run defense that was soft last season.
Rookie making the transition from defensive end to linebacker. Will likely begin the season in a reserve role.
