It’s not often where everyone agrees on what the Cleveland Browns do, but it’s pretty close to unanimous love for what the team did on Friday night. The move by GM Andrew Berry to trade up and select Notre Dame linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah has received near-universal praise.
From NFL analysts to Browns fans, and even fans of rival teams begrudgingly giving Cleveland some love, the trade-up is wildly popular.
Here’s a sampling of the reaction on the trade from Twitter accounts near and far.
The Browns got a STUD in Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah!

How happy were the Browns to get Owusu-Koramoah at 52?
DePodesta said Owusu-Koramoah was under consideration for the Browns at No. 26.

My son Justin is a huge Browns fan and he’s pumped right now because they just drafted a phenomenal defensive player. When I watched Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah play for Notre Dame last year he reminded me of a young Derrick Brooks. I think he’ll be a great open field defender.

Entering the Draft, there was a less than 1% chance Owusu-Koramoah would still be available at pick 37 — and Browns get him at 52, per @ESPNStatsInfo

The Browns with Greg Newsome and Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah.
Two first round players on my board. My favorite draft so far. That defense is crazy talented.

Within the next few years, as with D.K. Metcalf, there will be several teams who look back with regret for allowing Jeremiah Owusu-Karamoah to get past them. And I’ll put that on my momma. I’ll save you the tweet now – @OldTakesExposed https://t.co/tjZrYOjMXM
