Chidobe Awuzie NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’0 205lbs
- Solid tackler
- Dangerous blitzer
- Good hip movement
Analysis: Being a Colorado Buffaloes fan I was able to watch the greatness that is Chidobe Awuzie every Saturday for four years in Boulder. He uses fluid, controlled steps with easy change of direction allowing for extended mirroring from press. Decent jam to disrupt. Carries smooth backpedal downfield with excellent mirror-and-match footwork in man coverage. Digests route combinations from zone and makes wise choices. Athletic with suddenness in his movements. Experienced outside and from slot. Able to maintain coverage on shifty slot receivers. Instinctive with feel for route development. Possesses short-area closing burst. Confident on an island. Finds receiver on deep balls and gets head turned around. Dangerous slot blitzer with seven sacks over final two seasons at Colorado.
- More quick than fast
- Can get handsy down the field
- Lack game-changing plays (only 3 INT’s in college)
Analysis: Awuzie is a short strider who appears quicker than fast. Appears to lack long, recovery speed if beaten over top. Feels smaller than his listed size. Can be handsy down the field with pulls and tugs that turn into flags as a pro. Managed just three interceptions in college.
NFL Comparison: Malcolm Butler
