Cleveland Browns Rising Stock No. 1 – Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah

When the Cleveland Browns drafted Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah (JOK), I instantly thought, “this guy will be perfect to stop Lamar Jackson.” And boy was I right about that one.

JOK was absolutely flying around the field against Baltimore. Linebacker is one of the hardest positions on the field to stand out in, and he was jumping off the film.

He made multiple open-field tackles that saved substantial yards after the catch, he contained Jackson as well as any player I’ve ever seen, and he played fast and violent.

You could just tell, JOK didn’t have to think about any move he made, it was all-natural which helped make him seem even faster on the field.

JOK had 12 tackles and a half of a sack as he tied the most snaps he has played all season. After being on a pitch count the last two weeks, let’s hope that JOK is ready for a heavy snap count the remainder of the season.

Cris Collinsworth mentioned multiple times how good this rookie looked, and how he brings a level of athleticism to the position that not many teams have.

What’s most impressive about JOK? He has played the side-to-side portion of the game phenomenally, but he also is fantastic in the middle of the line. He sheds block as well as anyone and stands his ground just fine as an undersized linebacker.

No matter what happens this season, the Browns have a long-term answer at linebacker in JOK.
