Corner-back Chidobe Awuzie
First up is corner-back Chidobe Awuzie, who has the best chance to get drafted, and a chance to go pretty high in the draft. It is early in the season, but there has been early/mid day two talk for Awuzie and his draft hopes. There is a lot to like about this corner prospect.
What stands out is his toughness and length. At six-foot flat, Awuzie has good length, especially with his arms. With 200 pounds on his frame, Awuzie isn’t afraid to hit, or be a tough tackler. Awuzie has 210 tackles in his career, with ten of those in their first two games this season.

If Awuzie allows the catch, he is quick to make the tackle, which scouts and coaches love. There is work that can be done with his technique, but that can be said about any NFL draft prospect. Add in his desire to play and win, you have a fiery, passionate player.
There is a lot to like with Awuzie, and little not to like. His play has to stay at the level it has to keep that day two talk alive. If he can answer questions about his ball-hawking ability, he has a chance to go slightly higher, or cement himself as a day two prospect.
