Saints potential prospect: LB, Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, Notre Dame

Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah is an abnormally young, college talent. Owusu-Koramoah is entering the draft as a sophomore from Notre Dame. He was one of the top linebackers in the ACC last year for the Fighting Irish.

During his two years in Notre Dame, Owusu-Koramoah totaled 142 tackles, that’s not even the impressive part. Out of those 142 tackles, 24.5 of them were for a loss. Owusu-Kormoah has the instincts to get behind the line and make open-field tackles.

On top of that, Owusu-Koramoah adds 7.0 sacks, one interception, seven passes defended, five forced fumbles, and four fumble recoveries. Those are pretty talented stats for a sophomore looking to make the jump to the NFL.

Owusu-Koramoah is projected to be a late first-round draft pick right where the Saints want him. There is a possibility that he falls even more before the draft seeing he was a mid-first-round pick a couple of months ago. Either way, the Saints need Owusu-Koramoah.
