What to Expect From Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah in 2021

Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah is small, which is why he dropped to the second round. He needs the perfect system to thrive. However, he does appear to be built for today’s NFL. He thrives in coverage, both dropping into zones or playing man coverage. Facing some talented running backs in the AFC North, the new Browns linebacker will be able to shadow them out of the backfield. While he is not going to plug gaps against teams like the Ravens, he can essentially play the box safety role for the Browns, as they look to make a Super Bowl run in a stacked AFC.
