SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - Several draft experts believed former Irish linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah would be the first Domer off the board in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Owusu-Koramoah was a projected first round pick but he slid all the way to the 52nd overall pick to the Cleveland Browns.

Several scouts indicated that Owusu-Koramoah’s smaller size 216-pound frame was a contributing factor to him falling in the draft.

However, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Owusu-Koramoah also had a heart issue that came up late in the process and is why he fell out of the first round.

Schefter reports doctors did clear Owusu-Koramoah, but it did play a role in him dropping in the Draft.
