If you have never watched Brett Kollmann I highly recommend his YouTube channel. This is a draft preview on Notre Dame Linebacker Jeremiah Owuso-Koramoah.
I found it intriguing because the position that Owuso-Koramoah played in college is described by Kollmann as a Nickel/Sam LB hybrid which is basically what the Striker is in our defense. Obviously Owuso-Koramoah is a potential 1st round NFL pick but in watching the piece and listening to Brett Kollmann describe Koramoah's attributes, his role in the Irish defense and what makes him so versatile and valuable on the field I couldn't help but think of Chase Smith. Not that I'm trying to say that Smith will develop as well as Koramoah but that the type of role he had at ND may be the type of role that our staff sees Chase Smith possibly growing into.
