Andrew Berry: Nothing suggests Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah can’t have a long career

Notre Dame linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah was largely expected to be a first-round pick. But a report on Monday indicated he slipped to the second round in part due to a heart issue that became a concern to many teams.

Not so for the Browns, who selected him at No. 52 overall. During an appearance on 92.3 The Fan on Tuesday, General Manager Andrew Berry expressed Cleveland is confident Owusu-Koramoah’s heart will not be a problem.

“We just thought he was one of the more talented prospects in this year’s class,” Berry said. “He’s completely healthy. There’s really nothing in his background that would suggest he can’t have a nice, long career.”

Owusu-Koramoah is another key piece for an overhauled Cleveland defense that could include as many as nine new starters in 2021. He was the ACC defensive player of the year and Butkus award winner in 2020.

  1. That was a high value pick. The Browns have a really nice core and this was a good addition. The NFL is better when the Browns are better. The fans deserve it anyway. No bandwagon jumpers there, got to admire that regardless of your favorite team.

  2. JOK is a stud and will be huge performer for the Browns this year! Can’t wait to see him meet Punky Shuster over the middle this season. JuJu with a booboo. Book it!

  3. Puny 210 pounder trying to play LB in ground & pound AFC North. Get the little man off the field please, for his own safety!

  4. It would really help if we knew what the heart ailment was. Of course he’s entitled to his privacy but there’s a big difference between a simple arrhythmia and coronary heart disease. I’m going to go ahead and assume the super brains leading the Browns have done their homework.
