The Browns’ Defensive Players who have Rise and Shined

LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah

Salvation glands are hyper activate when you watch ‘JOK’ tape. I mean, the guy explodes off the page and is an energizer bunny on the linebacker group. As of right now despite what the stats might tell you, Owusu-Koramoah is playing about half of the Browns defensive plays this far in the season. With 17 total tackles and his ability to rush the passer and defend the pass as well, the young linebacker has been a swiss army knife of sorts to this Browns defense. We knew this, however, as in college at Notre Dame he displayed all of these kinds of skills that led to him winning the Dick Butkus Award. Thus far he could easily be the favorite for the defensive rookie of the year. As of right now “Wu” is the highest-rated rookie in the NFL according to Pro Football Focus with an 89.8. Not only that but he also ranks as the second-highest linebacker in the NFL as well according to PFF. Something to keep in mind is that this is without the entire defensive scheme opened up to him as well. Defensive coordinator Joe Woods has made comments that the rookie hasn’t been exposed to all the defensive schemes just yet. More snaps to me mean more of an impact because of how disciplined play Owusu-Koramoah has shown thus far.
