The Browns want to use both David Veikune and Kaluka Maiava at inside LB

SC = scout.com

SC Note: “Veikune was an end at Hawaii. He is being converted to inside linebacker. Kaluka Maiava was an outside linebacker at Southern California. He will play inside linebacker with the Browns. Two key free-agent signings and former Jets — Eric Barton and David Bowens — are linebackers. Barton is the projected starter inside next to D’Qwell Jackson and Bowens is a contender to start at left outside linebacker.”

Praising Veikune’s adjustment to LB, Eric Mangini said:
“It has been positive. His change-of-direction (agility), his ability to communicate the defense and his understanding of concepts has all been good. I brought him up to the board in the squad meeting and he had to draw a full blitz with everyone — defensive linemen, linebackers, safeties and cornerbacks. He got it right. He nailed it.” (SC)
