Round 4: CB Chidobe Awuzie, Colorado
Ok, I knew this draft would be defense heavy but never did I think it would get this out of control …
With the 4th straight defense selection in a row, the defense loving Still Curtain writer selects Chidobe Awuzie, a solid cornerback from Colorado.
One commonality amongst all of my draft picks have been that each prospect plays with a passionate intensity and aggressive physicality. This is something that I feel is lacking with Pittsburgh’s defense at times. Awuzie uses his physicality to disrupt WRs timing and break up passes at the catch point. Additionally, he is a sound run defender who is one of the best tacklers on his team.
Possible Options: Two other options here are Baylor wideout K.D. Cannon and Florida S Marcus Maye.
I felt myself wanting to go offense with this selection and take Cannon, but I figured there would be greater value at drafting a WR in the later rounds. Nevertheless, Cannon is a dangerous deep threat.
