Second Round, #60
Chidobe “Chido” Awuzie, CB, Colorado
Known as the best blitzing cornerback in the draft, “Chido” was the best defensive back on most draft boards when Dallas was on the clock in the second round. He can play both inside and outside so he should be an incredibly versatile piece of this defensive backfield.
Chido may be coming from a smaller school than Charlton but he has the instincts to be an elite defensive back in the NFL. His size and natural talents are not going to give him any extra help but his instincts and knowledge of the game should allow him to approach the game like a veteran early on.
His versatility has been celebrated since college and gives the Cowboys a player whop can lineup as a free or strong safety. They can even put Awuzie at linebacker in a pinch so this is an incredibly talented and versatile player.
The departures of cornerbacks Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne have been handled very well as the team has a youth movement going on at the position. Carr was a dependable player in terms of his health, Awuzie can be that and so much more.
The Colorado defensive back was a steal at 60 and was rumored to even slide into the first round on day 1. Now he joins a Cowboys defensive backfield that now appears to be very loaded.
