4. Sione Takitaki

Sione Taktaki has now received regular playing time for a quarter of the season, and Browns’ fans are still waiting for the former third-round pick to make a notable impact.

PFF gave him a grade of 47.3 for the contest. For the season, he has a mark of 47.7, which is considered replaceable. Of 76 linebackers graded by PFF, Takitaki is 45th.

To Takitaki’s credit, he’s done a nice job against the run, drawing a grade of 70.6 on the season. That said, he played 20 passing snaps against 9 running snaps in Cleveland’s victory.

Thankfully, the Browns were able to add Malcom Smith to the linebacking corps. He’s not grading out well against the run, but he’s been solid against the pass, even though he allowed a touchdown this past week.

Smith had four tackles in the victory and grades out as PFF’s 13th best linebacker of the 76 players at the position who received a grade.
