5. Cleveland Browns LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah
Unquestionably, rookie linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah-Koramoah played the most impactful snaps of his young career against the Bears on Sunday.
Pro Football Focus credited the rookie with shutting down multiple pass attempts on short and intermediate routes. NFL.com credited him with two passes defensed.
JOK also added four tackles. He was credited for half a sack, in addition to a tackle for no gain, according to the analytically oriented website. The later play came on a third-and-2 run by David Montgomery, which JOK was waiting to blow up.
Perhaps most importantly, JOK was there blowing things up on the rare occasion when Chicago and Justin Fields were able to avoid Myles Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney.
JOK’s biggest asset remains speed, which means he should be around the action pretty much every time he’s on the field.
He got the start ahead of third-year linebacker Sione Takitaki, who was injured.
