Biography

COLLEGE:

 

With their second round selection (60th overall) in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys continued to reload their defense by addressing their needs in the secondary with the choice of Colorado defensive back Chidobe Awuzie. A versatile athlete, Awuzie played all across the defensive backfield for the Buffaloes, including cornerback, free and strong safety. He concluded his collegiate career with 273 tackles, 35 pass breakups, three interceptions, five forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in 47 career games with 41 starts. He was also used as a pressure player in certain packages where he lined up at nickel or outside linebacker, finishing with 9.0 sacks, 26 tackles for loss and eight quarterback pressures. In Dallas, Awuzie is expected to battle for playing time and a chance to start for a Cowboys secondary that lost four players - and three starters - during the 2017 free agency period.
