The Browns grabbed LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah in the 2nd round of the 2021 NFL Draft. JOK is light, at 221 pounds, but he flies to the ball and specialized in impact plays for the Irish. That included 24.5 tackles for loss, 7 sacks, 7 INTs and 5 forced fumbles over his 2 seasons at Notre Dame. Cleveland traded up to get Owusu-Koramoah, who figures to compete for a full-time job right away.
Browns LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah missed Sunday night's preseason finale because of a "freak" weightlifting accident that left him with a gash in his forehead, according to Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot. The rookie needed stitches, then missed the rest of the practice week and the exhibition because he couldn't wear a helmet over the injury. Cabot believes JOK still has a shot at starting the regular-season opener against the Chiefs because of the athletic ability he has showed in camp and preseason. We have yet to see Owusu-Koramoah work in that role yet, though. For now, he's a late stash in deeper IDP drafts, with big upside.
The Browns have placed rookie LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah on the COVID list. That, of course, could mean a positive test or a high-risk exposure. We'll see how long the designation keeps the 2nd-rounder out and whether we should expect any lingering impact.
