Chidobe Awuzie has mostly been under the radar during the draft process, but the Colorado cornerback is one of the most interesting defensive backs in this year’s NFL draft. The Cowboys hope he can become an early contributor after selecting him with the 60th overall pick in the second round.
Awuzie was a four-year starter at Colorado, winning the job immediately as a freshman. He earned second-team All-Pac-12 honors in consecutive seasons, closing out his college career with three interceptions, 28 passes deflected, six forced fumbles, and 266 tackles. He also had 25 tackles for losses, including nine sacks — both figures are school records for defensive backs.
Chicago Bears – The Bears traded up from No. 3 with the San Francisco 49ers to select quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. Drafting Trubisky wasn’t a bad move at all. However, Chicago probably could have stayed in place or maybe even traded down and selected the young quarterback later. Trubisky wasn’t worth trading up for.
Cincinnati Bengals – For a team that’s needed speed opposite A.J. Green and whose past first-round picks have an extensive injury history, John Ross fit the bill perfectly. Cincinnati cleared Ross medically, so now it’s up to Andy Dalton and the offense to get things going again.
The Bears were scared that another team would pay, SB Nation’s Thomas George reported from Philadelphia.
Trubisky said he had no hint that the Chicago Bears adored him and were willing to pay such a hefty price. The Bears only moved up one spot from No. 3 to No. 2 in the trade with the San Francisco 49ers, but they gave the 49ers high picks from this draft and the next one. The Bears feared another Rugby Cheap Jerseys team was willing to do the same.
