Howie Roseman loves to convert safeties to linebackers, so the Notre Dame star could be a natural fit because of his tweener status.

Koramoah plays like safety when in space but a linebacker when asked to take on blocks.

His versatility to go from slot to box whenever needed is something that could finally get the Eagles over the hump against elite passing offenses.

Owusu-Koramoah is a player to that of former LSU star and current Ravens stud linebacker Patrick Queen.

The Hampton, Va. native is a 6-foot 1, 216-pound freakish athlete with elite 4.4 speed, who’s also a tackling machine and extremely versatile. According to Pro Football Focus’s snap tracker, Owusu-Koramoah has taken 107 snaps from the defensive line, 218 from the box, and 352 from the slot.

For the Fighting Irish, he’s allowed only 197 yards on 31 targets this season, while playing as a hybrid safety, CB, linebacker.
