While much of the off-season talk about the Browns has centered around their offense, the team has a chance to be their forte in 2022.
Midfielder of the second year Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoa can be a significant factor for the unit.
Cleveland selected Owusu-Koramoa in the second round of last year’s draft. He appeared in 14 games with 10 starts as a rookie, recording 76 total tackles, three tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, four passes defended and a couple of forced fumbles.
The Browns expect Owusu-Koramoa to show some improvement in the club’s defense from year one through year two.
“I think he had good off season,” head coach Kevin Stefansky recently said via Chris Easterling of Akron Lighthouse Magazine. “He works very hard. Like any sophomore, there is hope that there is a move that just comes from a greater understanding of what we do schematically, more use of technique and things like that. He works a lot”.
Owusu-Koramoa missed some time in his rookie season with a high ankle sprain. But in his second year he goes healthy and plays alongside talented players like Miles Garrett as well as Denzel WardOwusu-Koramoah could have a significant impact in 2022.
