Cooper played at Ohio State and already has 9 total tackles (3 solo).

Oweh played at Penn State and lots of media members said this was a reach for the Ravens, but it’s been anything but that so far. He has 14 total tackles (12 solo) with 3 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery.

We’ll have to see how these grades hold up towards the end of the season.
