DE Myles Garrett & LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah


On today’s practice:

Garrett: “I think it looked pretty good. A lot of the guys who are going to play looked very fluid and looked like they knew what they were doing. I do not think there were a lot of mistakes as far as MEs or MAs. I like how everybody is looking going forward to the game.”


On what Owusu-Koramoah can do to improve in Year 2:

Garrett: “I think he can be a big time player honestly. He is very well at using his frame. Even though he is a smaller linebacker, I would not say that he plays any smaller just because he is great at throwing the weight around and great at using his hands, and he flies around at such a high speed, he makes up for that lack of power that sometimes you can’t get if you are moving off the ball. I think as long as he stays within the frame of the defense and he keeps polishing up those moves, he can be a really great talent for us.”


On what Owusu-Koramoah has learned from Garrett:

Owusu-Koramoah: “Everything you see me do, I learned from this guy. Whether it is the shedding or whether it is on the line or the certain moves that he does, I kind of try to model my game after him. He has taught me a lot in reference to hand movement and the fundamentals of the game, whether it is being patient on the run or being patient even some passes where he has to drop back, I learn some stuff from him. He is a great mentor, a great guy to learn from. Even off the field, he has taught me some stuff.”


On if Garrett has taken Owusu-Koramoah to the Natural History Museum:

Owusu-Koramoah: “Not yet. He has taken me to his home museum. He has a museum in his house if everybody did not know.”


On if they are always joking and light-hearted as well as supportive of one another, even when not on camera:

Garrett: ”Absolutely. Always like this no matter where we are. Whether we are in Dallas training or we are up here, it is always cool and good vibes with us. Actually, I have a bit of an announcement. I am now the science ambassador of the Cleveland Natural History Museum so now I have got to take him.”


Owusu-Koramoah: “Just what I need. That is congratulations for you. You will see me there a bunch of times, whether it is learning or I may even get more into the information and I will probably be teaching if Myles allows me to (laughter).” 


On becoming a science ambassador for the Cleveland Natural History Museum:

Garrett: “It means a lot. I have always prided myself on trying to study the arts and being more in-tune with science, not only human history but paleontology and pre-history. For them to select me, they have so many others that could be an ambassador for them. It really means a lot. Just keep on trying to make sure that I am the person for that spot in that role.


Owusu-Koramoah: “Paleolithic periods, Neolithic periods and all of that?”


Garrett: “Paleolithic.”


On if Garret has always been interested in science:

Garrett: “Yeah, I have always been this curious about science and really interstellar science, as well. It has always been a big curiosity of mine and passion of mine. I am sure him too because he is a very deep thinker like I am. He has probably wrapped his head around many concepts that we do not even think about.” 


On if they have learned from each other, given their off the field interests:

Owusu-Koramoah: “I would say so. Myles has a very unique style. He has a wide plethora of things that maybe nobody would have even thought he was thinking about in reference to music, in reference to his history and in reference to the knowledge that he may bring across. I have learned a lot. Our lockers are right beside each other if you want to peek in. A lot of interesting conversations going on.”


On Owusu-Koramoah having a locker between QB Jacoby Brissett and Garrett:

Owusu-Koramoah: “Literally, it is like me, and then Jacoby and then Myles. It is a lot of information in that one circle.” 


On teammates saying Brissett is funny and Brissett saying it is just because he is older: 

Owusu-Koramoah: “He has this serious humor, but he is able to keep his face the same. He is joking but his face is [the same]. It is his aura, his movements and his gestures actually make him funny to me at least from personal experience.”
