Outside linebacker and rookie Kamerion Wimbley looks like he might be the type of pass-rushing force the Browns have been in search of for the past several seasons. Already with two sacks in the preseason, the young defenseive end turned linebacker has shown the ability to get to the quarterback and has made life extremely difficult for offensive blockers. The transition for Wimbley has seemed all too easy as he has been able to pick up the nuances of his new postion rather quickly.
“I think it gets better every game,” Wimbley said. “I don’t know if I’m at a 10, but I’m getting there. As every game goes by, I feel a little bit more comfortable. When I’m out there I don’t feel pressured.”
As impressive as Wimbley has been so far in the preseason, he has made some mistakes, not uncommon for a player making a postion switch for the first time. However, the rookie is doing a good job of learning from those mistakes and is using them to make himself a better player.
Wimbley has the advantage of sitting back and learning from Willie McGinest, one of the league’s best at his position. He’s almost in a perfect situation here in Cleveland. Wimbley is a very humble guy and doesn’t look to be in the spotlight. His role with the Browns is ideal, where he can take his time learning his new position without too much pressure being put on him. Being a full-time starter will come eventually for Wimbley but with the way he’s been progressing and improving, that day could come a lot sooner than expected.
